I know since the first blog came out, you’ve all been dying for mores updates. Well here they are…
We had a really big and busy week last week. Good news: our space is empty (it was full of boxes from another tenant) and ready to be in construction mode! Bad news: permitting and paperwork in Montgomery County is a lengthy and time-consuming process (surprise, surprise).
Antonia was in Maryland for the better half of the week and we spent some time hanging out on our yoga mats in our empty space; just taking it all in and excitedly chatting over our next steps. Meeting with the county, architects, contractors and collecting bids is definitely stressful, but on the other hand it’s getting us closer to our goal!
We spent last Wednesday in beautiful 80 degree weather (Antonia was happy, apparently it’s still not spring in Massachusetts!) meeting and chatting with an amazing roster of instructors. We parked ourselves at a sunny table in Congressional Plaza and met with instructors all day. We’re so happy to have met such inspiring women, each who appreciate all styles of yoga and what it brings to people differently. The day was very collaborative and we have TONS of new ideas to share with you, and everyone at extendYoga.
Thanks to everyone who recommended various instructors to us. We really did luck out with this first round of interviews. Please let us know if you know anyone else who is interested – we have a few more spots to fill!
Our next step is to make our final architect selection and get our layout/diagram going. Once the architect begins our layout, we can launch into the demolition and construction… which we are SO EAGER to start!
