Classes starting from 1st August at Yogarise Peckham
Since April… we’ve clearly been wayyy too busy to write our blog. A thousand apologies. We want to communicate more regularly, and we will attempt to be a little more present in the future (if that makes sense)!
In that time however, besides meditating a lot, we have chatted to loads of interesting folk about how to launch a studio, we’ve set up bank accounts, Ryan spent 6 weeks (and 200 hours) training as a meditation teacher with Unplug LA (if you haven’t heard of them, check them out!). We’ve chatted to staff and members of Runway East about how to be more mindful in their jobs, and we taught those sessions in some very cool locations including a rooftop in Old Street under the blazing sun. (We’ll save that for another blog post)!
We’ve also played around with our logo and typeface a lot to try to strike the right tone and put our values and personality at the fore. The image above is where we’re are right now. We like this logo about 1000X more than our original one. It’s still homemade, and involves the appropriation of an emoji, but it represents some of the things we want to achieve with Levitate — approachability, not taking ourselves too seriously, access to wellness, meditation & good mental health as a basic right for everyone, irrespective of identity/gender/sexuality/background/creed/politics/philosophy (you get the point). Oh and it has a levitating person 🧘🏿 … what more could we ask for? We’d love to hear what you think.
Today though, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that we’ve formed a friendly partnership with Yogarise Peckham who are kindly incubating us for the next 6 months. They are an amazing studio. We’re so grateful for the opportunity to get to know them and their community better. We’d also like to announce that we are starting regular weekly meditation and mindfulness classes at Yogarise (Studio 2) from 1st August!
Namaste and thank you all,
Ryan and the fabulous team of supporters here at Levitate HQ
