We quietly opened Namaslay® Studios in Ridgefield, Connecticut this summer, and while it’s been a wild and exhilarating ride so far, I know we are just getting started. With fall pretty much here, I decide to switch up the yoga and strength class schedule, and we’ll now offer early morning classes at the top of the week, more evening Namaslay® Hip Hop Yoga classes, and we’ll be debuting our newest class, Namaslay® Sculpt, which is basically a dialed back version of Namaslay® Strength. We’ve also added a new teacher and a handful of new subs, and I’m just really excited about all the potential this space has, and am hopeful that once school routines get underway, we’ll see more and more people swinging by to check it out. Yoga has a beautiful way of bringing people together. Of course, a self guided practice and following along with a video from home is great, but there’s something magic about being in a room with other people and having an in-person teacher to guide you. Everyone is present for their own experience, but we share the common goal of realizing our true nature and taking steps to bring out the best in ourselves. Community is made. Friendships and lasting connections are forged when we share time and space and support one another in setting aside time to serve ourselves. I hope this studio can become a home away from home for people to come and be completely themselves; to talk about their day and know we are really listening to their response; to take time to do the little things that make our lives feel full.
On the YBC® App this week, I’m sharing the highlights and the toughest struggles of the studio opening, and my plans for how to continue to grow. Be sure to download and opt-in for that exclusive content, and if you’re in the area, please come by and take a class!
