'And suddenly you know it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.'
I know in the grand scheme of news, with Brexit and a general election looming, this is not the biggest news ever, but maybe some small news could bring some cheer at this time of year?
In addition to working with my one-on-one clients, I now have the opportunity to make a much bigger impact by opening a yoga, fitness and wellness studio in Harrogate!
As I've grown into a career in PT and yoga, it was with a dream to bring people happiness, increased confidence and empowerment through a better relationship between their mind and body. This is what this venture is about - now on a larger scale.
My journey through fitness, and then into yoga has transformed not only my body but my mind. I have gone from a stressed, negative and self-depreciating person into someone who is much more positive, grateful and effective. So having felt this transformation myself, this is now about creating freedom and balanced in modern stressful life for you. I see fitness, yoga and wellness as all equally important parts of our overall health, but too often I see this fragmented into different places, venues, teachers etc. Now you can get your fitness and yoga fix all in the same place.
I want to create a community of people who support each other in becoming fitter, stronger, and more in tune with themselves. I wouldn't be who I am today without the support of my loved ones; and it is this connection with other people that I recognise as being so truly important in helping us to evolve, grow and change. I want the studio to be a place where we meet and grow with like-minded people, and I can't wait to meet some of you who have the same dream as me! Together, we can start, grow, practice, build strength, sweat, connect, relax, find balance and breathe. My goal is that you leave the studio feeling stronger, lighter and inspired.
We are based at 1 Westmoreland Street, and will offer a variety of fitness, yoga and run activities, as well as one-off events such as workshops, day retreats and courses. Classes start Monday 2nd December - you can check the schedule out here. Keep your eyes peeled for some exciting introductory offers too!
I am so incredibly excited (and terrified!) to be doing this. But let's go. Let's transform the world as we transform ourselves.
