I found our third home down the block – a beautiful 2 story building that allowed us to have an upper and lower level ½ a block away from our prior home. It had a beautiful brick wall right when you walked in, big picture window and a huge skylight. After being in small inner offices, this was a huge and welcome change, even if at times we felt like it was a fishbowl when people would look in through the window, and we were now a retail space, so we tried to address hour hours issue with signage on the windows.
We had Reformers and Cadillac upstairs, Towers and Chairs downstairs. We purchased an additional Reformer bringing the total to 6 and an additional Chair bringing the total to 6 as well. This allowed us to increase class sizes and offer some combo classes. We spent two years in this location. We made a break with our blue walls at this location because it was already painted a beautiful golden color that just worked so nicely with our apparatus and allowed for a quick turnaround on the move. While we liked this location a lot, the steps to the lower level were not ideal for some of our clients and we had issues with the Heat and AC as well as the landlord which we would have worked through, but we ideally were looking for more space to add some new apparatus, so we began to look once more.
