Downingtown Yoga is moving into a new facility, just one-and-a-half blocks from its current location. We’re very excited about this because we’ve had a basement problem in our current location. We moved in during snow season (February 2011) and didn’t know that the basement was so “fragrant.” In the 2011 spring thaw, when we discovered this, we brought in the professionals and had the air tested. Fortunately we had no mold or mildew, just a smell. Bound by a two-year lease, we used air filters to try to compensate for it. It wasn’t a perfect system. We’ve been looking for a new site since we discovered this, but it took almost two years to find one. Now we have it!
The delightful part of our new site is that it has housed an arcade for the last few years. From a yogic perspective, it’s a wonderful play of consciousness!
We are removing a wall to make the main room larger, both for yoga classes and satsangs, plus we have to paint the walls (which were painted black). This will be done soon, so that we can hold our Shaktipat Retreat there on January 11. What a great way to get started!
It’s also interesting that both Master Yoga and Downingtown Yoga are moving at the same time. It shows that lots is happening in the new year – we’ll see what it holds in store for us.
UPDATE: While I was writing this, I found out that we have no heat in our old space, so we are starting in our new facility on Sunday! See – a new year’s surprise, right in the moment as it occurs…
Swami Sunday, on January 6 from 8:30 am – 12:15 pm will be held at Downingtown Yoga Meditation Center, NEW ADDRESS: 114 E Lancaster, Downingtown PA. Probably the pinball arcade sign will still be up! And we’ll have heat!
With love and blessings, and giggles,
