The studio has had a few lives. Once, it was one with a working farm spreading out on both sides of County Road W. It served as a granary. Oats, still grown in the area, stapled an operation that included cows and pigs. Imagine savasana in the present studio, seeing oats stacked to the windows.
Now, imagine the second life when Lucy and the gardener gutted the insides leaving only the ribs of oak and fir that form the walls and floor existing still behind the present interior facade. The open spaced served our life, family and friends in legend celebrations having now been memorialized. Such as we remember.
Entering the next life the space awaited an awakening. Creating a new space to incubate the awareness of yoga as path to renewal and healing is the new life of the granary. Certainly worthy of being the new storage space for the staple of a new life. In 2010 the inside and outside of the present studio space was reborn. sweat and some times, the blood, of both of us and those who love us remade the structure as it is now seen.
It is entirely possible that the old granary studio will see another life still. We are temporary when considered in relation to such a structure. Our intention is to honor the space as it now lives and trust in the it's inherent power as a place of resource and healing for people.
