We sent this out before we moved….but we have moved!
A note from our founder, Karen G.
Dear Yoga Lovers:
2016 was a year of simplifying and letting go for so many of us. A clearing out of things, situations, and relationships that kept us feeling weighted. It was a year of preparation for 2017, which is proving to be all about forward movement , re-creating and re-defining. It’s about stepping into what we have been becoming all along. We are so excited to share with you how that shift has manifested for us here at Red Pearl: We are moving!
As many of you know, we have been in the same magical location for over 15 years. The time has come for us to change it up. Our new studio is located in the up-and-coming Flagler Village/ Mass Arts District, less than one mile from our current location. We will be sharing and co -creating a community with hand-chosen shops and restaurants offering excellent food and drink, retail and entertainment. 6 minutes away from where we are now, with many more travel routes to get there. And parking! Free parking!
Here are a few of the highlights of the new space that will benefit all of you, as well as our staff and teachers and community:
~Additional Classes(early morning/mid day)
~Spacious warehouse style with tall ceilings and good ventilation.
~Tons of useable wall space(Kate and Maral will be very happy!)
~Abundant natural light.
~Parking lot..Free parking lot.
~Street level entry- so we may accommodate more students with special needs.
~Studio temperature will be cooler when weather is hot, and warmer when it’s cool due to building construction/positioning/temperature control.
~Property management! Yay! AND a neighborhood association to keep things rolling smoothly. ~Great business neighbors that we are sure will become your favorites-cafe, craft beer and cocktails, restaurants, bakeries, and more coming!
~Going Green: We have repurposed some of our elements from Red Pearl, (so that is where those benches went!)and redesigned them to create a more flexible Yoga space that can also accomodate neighborhood friendly events and art happenings. But that can only go so far…
Here comes the money pitch:
There is a lot to be done to make sure that we create the Yoga home we dream of …the one that you deserve. The one that our teachers, staff, community and planet deserve.
We are all about a fresh, greener start with things like more efficent fans and lighting, -that also meet our aesthetics. We will eliminate all that paper in the bathrooms with hand dryers instead of all those paper towels! And toilets that flush! lol. Below we have listed some of the things we need to transform this new studio space into our dream home and make you fall in love all over again: ~Install new flooring ~Efficient efficient ceiling fans and lighting ~Eco flow toilet ~Hand dryer in bathroom, ~Sound system engineered for the space ~New props: chairs, bolsters, mats and straps ~Craftsman and Electrician costs ~Licensing fees
~Signage ~Insurance ~Moving costs ~Advertising & New Signage
~Website and media updates ~New printed materials(ie: business cards, schedules)
We are so grateful that you have been our inspiration and part of our journey and we hope you will continue to grow alongside with us in this exciting new phase. If you would like to contribute to the funding, we would be beyond grateful, and would be honored that you find co-funding our dream worthy of your hard-earned dollars. Feel free to ask any of our instructors and staff about the move. If they cannot answer something with certainty, they will send you my way.
With Gratitude and Excitement,
Karen G and the Red Pearl Family
