June 2017 marks a very special event for us at Balanced Motion Pilates and Yoga. Six years ago this month we opened our doors! Six isn’t usually credited as a milestone but it feels pretty significant to me. A local business owner once told me that it takes 3 years to really know if your business is here to stay. Here we are at double that already and going strong. Hooray for us!!
But really it’s hooray for you, the readers of this blog and our wonderful clients who give the studio viability! Without you, things just wouldn’t be .. well… anything at all. You lovelies make a pretty amazing tribe!! The ongoing support our studio has had from wonderful humans like you leaves me in awe.
Does it sound weird to say I find I’m generally in awe with regards to our studio? Truly, feeling awe is part of the beauty of the thing because small moments of grace occur regularly here: micro-moments of connection with clients, with wonderful colleagues and landlord, within the movement practices we teach and live. Our practices have always thrived with creativity and the collaboration is so enriching.
Thinking back to 2010, Sherry and I were getting our Pilates certification and we had long drives to Toronto where we chatted about the vision for opening a Pilates and Yoga studio in New Liskeard. Then there was the day in early 2011 when Sherry, Lorrie and I met in the unrenovated space that became our main studio, made the big decision and Balanced Motion Pilates and Yoga was conceived. Seems so long ago now, but in the span of six years our community has seen a number of other movement businesses start up. Thank you to our community for embracing the options.
What I love about our studio is how hopeful it is. We have always prioritized positivity even when challenges arise (as they are bound to). We manage adversity drama-free. And there is always an openness to change and flow which has helped me grow in ways I needed to grow.
Doesn’t that sound like a great place to hang out? If you are reading this and haven’t visited our studio we welcome you anytime. Do yourself a solid by becoming part of our tribe. Your ‘self’ will thank you.
Have a great week
