Morning All!!!! The schedule has been changed yet again.....and this probably won't be the last time! I will have it finalized by October 15th so that people can start joining...for now it's a work in progress! I have made the schedule to fit instructors and as I hire more then we can add classes. I am trying to get Tai Chi class at least once a week, and I'm looking into some specialty classes. The possibilities are endless and I'm really excited! I have added a Choga class in the evening and if the demand is large enough I will add another. I am also still working to get Silver Sneakers which will be really great for my Choga crowd! I am overwhelmed with the positive responses I have been getting and I cannot wait to open! This is going to be so good for our community! I would love some feedback on what you guys are looking for as far as classes offered and times...so please let me know! Obviously I can't accommodate everyone but I will try my best! As always...please share this info with anyone you feel would be interested! THANK YOU for the support!!! Oh and we will be back in the studio renovating again this weekend so more pics to come on that!
This past weekend the renovation of our studio really started to come together! I posted so pics on our facebook page so check them out! We got the lobby/office area painted and Aaron even started to lay some of the new flooring. He and I both have had a vision for the space and it's awesome to see it come to fruition. The support is awesome too! Some family stopped by to see it and that helps the day go by, we love that, so if you see our cars there stop in!!! Of course in the middle working Saturday I started coming down with some sort of cold and ended up lating on the sub flooring at one point lol...but Aaron kept working bless his heart! I swear it seems like since we've decided to open a studio I have contracted one virus after another...I am keeping my fingers crossed that I'm getting the fall/winter illnesses out of the way before the opening! That's just life though right!?!? ANYWAY, as I was saying we love it when people stop in to see what changes we've made so please feel free to do so! Once the lobby is done we will move to the actual studio space which I am most excited about!
If you don't know this, my mom actually designed my logo and I am so proud! She did an amazing job and it is just what I asked for. I am working with a signs company to get the closest version of it possible and I'm hoping to have signs on my windows ASAP!!!!! These signs should be pretty cool because they allow natural light and privacy. I have 3 street front windows, which I love, but not everyone is comfortable with being on display during class. The signs we chose will cover the entire 2 studio windows allowing light to filter through into the class and we can see out but people on the streets cannot see in!
SO lots of things happening, I will keep you guys posted as we go!!! THANK YOU FOR THE SUPPORT!!! I had a student actually write on the blog and I LOVE THAT and I welcome your comments!!!! Get your yoga mats ready because we are opening soon!!!
Southern Charm Yoga is now hiring instructors!!!!! We are looking for passionate people that do have experience! When you do what you love, you love what you do, so if you love teaching yoga call me! I'm looking for people who have personally experineced the benefits of the practice and find real joy in helping others find it for themselves! This is very exciting for the community of Mt. Washington and everyone involved! If you have a genuine interest in being a part of the Southern Charm Yoga family please contact me! Call me on my cell at 502-773-0582, email me at SCYOGA18@yahoo.com or send me a message through Facebook (Southern Charm Yoga LLC).
So, I found the perfect little space for my new yoga studio....right beside a bakery lol!!!! Seriously, I am literally next door to a bakery, and an awesome one at that! So basically it's a do some yoga, eat a brownie type deal! It's the perfect scenario!
Anyway...my space is awesome but it needs love!!! Thankfully my husband is quite handy when it comes to such things. We have tore down walls, put up walls, ripped out counters and this is only a week into our lease! We have a vision and will not stop until it's brought to life! I am posting pics on facebook and instagram if you want to follow along! The studio space is exactly what I was looking for. I have plenty of room!
As we created the space for the studio portion it became clear what kind of numbers the room will hold. My chair classes will hold about 25 chairs and still have room to put mats under them for the advanced classes!!!! This is huge for my chair class students! My students have been ready to move forward and up their yoga game for a while and now we have the space and time to do so! I am so excited for everyone!
As for the mat classes...the space will hold 30 mats comfortably. This is just working out great!
I will have an app up and running so scheduling will be done through that and this website. No worries...I will walk you all through the scheduling process when it's time!
As for now..I am off to do more paperwork!!! I AM LOOKING FOR INSTRUCTORS SO PASS THE WORD ALONG!!!!!
Check out our progress and hang tight......Southern Charm Yoga is COMING SOON!
Super exciting stuff going on over here at Southern Charm Studios!!! We are opening November 1st and you don't want to miss it!!
It's been a dream of mine for years to have a place to teach what I love to do and that's Choga!!! If you don't know what Choga is you are not alone! Most people don't even know what I'm saying when I tell them what I do...no worries though because once I explain they look at me with even more confusion! LOL! Choga is...wait for it...Yoga in a CHAIR!!!! It is so rewarding to help people stretch and progress through their Yoga practice from the safety of a chair. People do not realize what the benefits until they take the class. One class and the light bulb goes off!! You realize what you've been missing and what your body needs! It's ao awesome! I teach Choga to all ages and abilities. Canes, wheelchairs, replacement parts, they don't scare me lol! SO, you should totally come to the studio and try a Choga class!!!
Now let's cover Yoga in general! I've always been a fan cause I have scoliosis (pain and spasms) and I have found most people do have some sort of back issue. Yoga is the answer if you ask me!
Hot Yoga is best in my opinion but I have excellent instructors to assist you in all the classes!!!! Don't be scared of getting on the mat for a regular mat class or sweating like crazy in a heated class. I know you will love it! And we NEED this out here in The Mount!!! So grab your neighbor, best friend, mom, mammaw, WHOEVER and bring them over to Southern Charm Yoga and let's get our yoga on ya'll!!!!!!!!
Hey Ya'll...sometimes I like to blog about what we're doing over here at Southern Charm! It helps to get the word out & make the lovely people who come to our studio a little more comfy!
