It's incredible to think that earlier in the year we were closing our studio doors (for what I assumed would be for good), and now as we wrap up the year, we're unlocking new ones.
It was honestly the hardest decision I've ever had to make to close our physical studio location and rebrand for an exclusively online platform. I had literally no idea if my concept for daily pre-recorded classes would even work (especially because the prevailing model at the time was livestream zoom classes) but I knew I had to give it a try.
And today, I could not be happier that I did. Our OMOLOGY ONLINE community has grown so much and it is filled with the most incredible and supportive humans. On top of that, having all our classes on-demand has afforded me (and I think many of our members too) an incredible amount of time freedom.
As most of you know, until now and throughout lockdown I've been filming from home ('cause obviously, who even needed a "guest bedroom" this past year?! lol). While this has been great, especially during this transition period, I don't work alone--shout out to our amazing team: Abi, Yasi, and Jade--and I wanted a space that was ours, not just mine.
Many of you have been following my little renovation journey for Omology's new headquarters in Plaza Damas. I cannot tell you how stoked I am on this location. We're surrounded by some amazing wellness neighbours and healthy eats (Rubberduck is actually my second home at this point) and I can spy on my husband John at Chop Hair Studio (or pop in for a quick hair wash/style!).
The space itself is huge and I designed it with the option to be "open-air" with gorgeous custom-made bi-fold doors that open all the way across the front of our studio to a huge balcony (which was super important especially for ventilation in a post-Covid wellness environment).
So as expected, a lot of you now want to know what will be the purpose of this space and I'm ready to reveal it all here! This studio will primarily be a space for filming classes and content for OMOLOGY ONLINE in addition to the following:
PRIVATE YOGA CLASSES.
Our studio focuses on small group and private one-to-one training. We achieve strong, mobile physiques by combining individualised movement programming with the practice of Yoga, offering a functional approach that is healthy, safe, engaging, and enjoyable. No matter where you are in your journey, our method accommodates practitioners of all levels.
Our intention is always to create meaningful impact so that our OMOLOGY clients, students and teacher trainees leave our space feeling more mindful, more comfortable in their body's abilities, and empowered in the knowledge that they have gained.
Book a session for yourself or a group of friends with any of our knowledgable instructors. These classes are excellent for students with specific needs or goals. It's also a nice option if you're not quite comfortable with returning to a public, group class environment but would also like the opportunity to practice outside of your home space and with studio equipment.
YOGA EVENTS & WORKSHOPS.
Whether it's partnering up with our favourite wellness brands or hosting informative workshops to support your yoga/fitness journey, we love a fun social moment of movement.
YOGA TEACHER TRAININGS.
I conduct 4 yoga trainings annually two of which are conducted in-person. These will therefore also take place in this space. My online trainings will be livestream'd from this studio too.
We also rent our studio for photoshoots, filming, private classes, etc. because it is just too beautiful not to share! Kindly reach out to us at email@example.com to know more.
This year's been a whirlwind and it's definitely given me lots to reflect on. Most of all I am just so grateful to everyone who has been a part of this wild ride. Thank you for being here.
Ps. If you're making a big shift and you're scared shitless, I see you and I'm cheering you on.
