After half a year of hustling - peering in windows, phoning numbers on signs, dragging my kids through countless dingy rooms and a few that had potential, a few times getting my hopes up only to be undone by something out of my control - it's surreal to have stopped looking.
It was getting embarrassing - kind, supportive people would ask me, "Have you found a space yet?" and I'd stammer on about some boring zoning problem and end with a cliche about spinning wheels or red tape or the old drawing board. It was starting to feel like all talk, like my ideas were doomed to remain theoretical.
But it's all about to get real.
I signed a lease and dropped off a security deposit. I'm about to start haemorrhaging money and I'm cool with that. I have an endless to do list and every so often I do a little dance for no reason.
The countdown has begun. Amma Yoga will be ready to welcome you on March 1st, 2016.
We're excited to share the journey with you.
