We’re very pleased to announce that our new website is up and running! Just like our building, it’s still under some construction, but you will find loads of information about the studio, Bikram Yoga and all kinds of other questions we’ve been receiving. Please take a moment to go look: www.bikramyogasimsbury.com Please also let us know if there is something you’d like to see there that you’re not finding.
Construction at 7 Deer Park continues, with lots of progress being made:
This is the front of the building, where you can see the new front door cut in (on the right). The final garage door will stay until they’re done with all of the big equipment.
Here is the foundation for the new vestibule and stairwell. Once the foundation is done, they’ll start on the glass block walls. Very cool!
And in the back of the building, the utility room foundation is also being completed. This will house all of the mechanicals (like boilers and water heaters) as well as some storage and the washer and dryer.
And the inside starts to take shape! Here are the walls to the locker rooms, looking toward the men’s and the back of the building.
It is definitely taking the time it needs. One of the reasons for the length is our planning for the future, which we spoke about last time. A future plan that falls into this category includes the set up for a generator, so no matter what the weather throws at us, you can still do your yoga!
To round out our wellness community, we’ve had several meetings with interested tenants, who include a chiropractor, a spa and massage therapists.
We’ve also begun to fulfill one of our missions, which is to support local charitable initiatives. We’ll be donating two gift certificates to the Green Tangerine’s fund raiser for Habitat for Humanity. It will be held on Saturday, November 15 at Room 960 in Hartford. Call Liz Walczok for more information at 860-693-8785 . Help us to support this very worthwhile event!
We’ve procured our front end registration system! This is a state-of-the-art on-line system that will allow you to accomplish many things on your own, including registering and paying for specific classes or workshops as well as purchasing gift certificates. We should have gift certificates for sale soon, hopefully by mid-November.
And finally, speaking of dates…We’ve put a stake in the ground for a December 15 opening. We’ve asked the contractors to rally around this date as well, and we’re hoping that we come very close to that marker. Send up some happy construction thoughts for us!
