I had started to fly with my Yoga Trapeze/Yoga and Barre company and then suddenly "lockdown" which meant that I could no longer trade; I wasn't entitled to any of the funding due to my status and hiring of other peoples studios so this meant I had to carry on working as a Customer Service Employee part time.
Covid 19 lockdown is now slowly opening in Wales even though uncertain however because of the hire of the studio I am only allowed 1:1 clients at an increased charge to them; which can be difficult for some people.
I need to hire lager space in order to offer Mindfulness, Health and Wellbeing, Mental Health with meditation, Spinal Health and physical health with Yoga Trapeze and Barre Fitness IBBFA. I have paid and am working on further education to enhance my social impact.
I have funded my own education to achieve my teaching qualifications and also my equipment is funded therefore I am not looking for funding for "wage" (as I am still going to be working part time to pay my personal bills). This funding is only to hire my studio and get it fit for purpose.
Once I have a larger studio to hire I can then offer mindfulness/meditation - back and pain relief and physical fitness to a larger group of people within the Covid 19 rules and regulations; which would then allow me to keep the cost down for others whilst improving my own profit.
As a woman of 55 I am late coming to the party; after being a UK and World Dance champion "many moons ago" and at 49 decided to start aerial gymnastics as a hobby as I didn't want to grow old without fitness or strength. I have always been into fitness in someway and have moved from a size 18 to a 6 and so on and so forth through life/cancer/children/divorce. I love the Yoga ethic and practice which offers such a mindful and decisive way to move forward without compromising beliefs - the yoga trapeze helps people to achieve in Yoga like never before with 3000 years history of yogis using slings to get further into their poses and Barre Fitness allows you to work with your own body to achieve your own goals without causing harm. Along with the meditation and mindfulness, plus positive affirmations I can offer something which give amazing opportunities to others.
