We are really excited to announce that, following our successful equity crowdfunding investment round via Seedrs in September 2014, Studio 2 will open on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd April. It’s right next door to the current studio space (reception and access will be through 14 Hatherley Mews as it is currently), and from 915am on 2nd April, all our yoga and mat Pilates classes will be in the new studio.
We will be running a launch event over the weekend of 2/3 April between 9am and 2pm both mornings. Pop in before or after your class, and choose from free massage (provided by Urban Massage and Leyton Sports Massage), reflexology (Leyton Sports Massage), file and polish manicures (from Y.Wait Beauty), Bluebird matcha and cold brewed tea, Moju juices and healthy, raw snacks from Creative Nature and Rhythm 108. There will also be popups from Shanti Sundays and Yoga Leggs for apparel and yoga props.
The new studio has been designed by Studio Milne Architects, with space for 40+ mats, double height ceilings, skylights and a glass wall to the front of the studio. There is a mezzanine tucked in to maximise light from the skylights both on the mezzanine itself and into the studio.
On the mezzanine, you’ll find 2 showers, 4 toilets and 3 changing rooms, with a vanity and a waiting area. There are a further 3 changing rooms downstairs. The new studio space is also being designed to include a ‘living wall’: a four metre square green facade planted with several species of climbing plants that have specific air purification qualities.
We can’t wait for you all to see it!
