Well, a lot has happened over at 7 Deer Park since our last Newsletter! Here are some updated shots:
This is what went in under the floor – all the tubes and grids for the awesome radiant heat. Once that was set and approved, we could pour the floor.
Here’s the new, beautifully smooth floor.
We also finished the floor in the new utility rooms, and the block walls are almost complete.
This is utility room.
But some of the best stuff is going on now, with the framing of the interior walls. You can really see the layout of the place now, and it’s going to be pretty spectacular.
So the next big step is to finish the roof work. Until this is complete, we can’t do a whole lot of finish work inside. If the weather holds, the place should be closed in within a couple of weeks. After that, we go to town on the drywall, paint, flooring, etc.
A little bit of a warning – as winter has made its presence known, the current, charming exterior of the building will have to remain, um, charming until Mother Nature grants us Spring. So, please know that we are fully aware of how… charming it is and will absolutely make sure it is much more charming as soon as we can. Here’s a shot:
(Like I said. Chaaarming.)
We have big news: Gift Certificates are now available right from our website:www.bikramyogasimsbury.com, or www.hotyogaguy.com (catchy, isn’t it?). You’ll see the click on the left side of the page. You can buy them in any amount and, as soon as we’re open, they can be used for classes or clothes or gifts or food – whatever you’d like! Check back again soon for tee shirts available on the website.
If you have a minute, take a look at the Schedule tab. You’ll notice that we made each weekday the same and the weekend days the same. We’re hoping that this will give us all one less thing to try to keep track of, and you know you can always get your Bikram class at the same time every day. During the non-class times, you’ll also be able to schedule private or semi-private classes to work on your practice.
As always, if you have any marketing ideas or comments on the website, we’d love to hear them. We have had many requests for our magnets and flyers which we are very happy to get to you, just say the word.
We’ll be putting together a referral program soon, so if you’re recruiting your friends to sign up, please make sure they let us know who sent them.
Lastly, our class offerings are almost complete and ready to be published, but we’re thinking of offering a pre-opening Inaugural Membership. This will include unique benefits and discounts. Please let us know if you’d be interested in something of this sort.
Until next time, here’s one for the holiday season: “Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.” (Sally Koch)
From our family to yours, I wish you happiness, wellness and peace this holiday and in the New Year.
