That Northern Place is the new and exciting venture from all of us at Proper Northern Yoga. After successfully building Kendal's first solely dedicated yoga space we aim to expand our hub into a bigger studio with a ton of potential for varied offerings. We need your help to transform it into a destination social and holistic wellness hub that will truly be unique not only to Kendal but to the whole of the North West. We want you to help make it your Northern Place.
We currently house a number of local yogis, pilates instructors, and other wellness based individuals. Our new space will be able to house even more, creating a hub of holistic services.
This is not just another studio though. We want to do things differently and that is our motto. Not only do we want to stand by the independently run businesses that we already work with, or will work with in the future. We want to stand by you, keeping our offerings focussed on giving you access to the best classes, courses, treatments available all at one convenient place. That Northern Place needs to embody its name... a welcoming environment where you can nip for a brew, take in class or a treatment and feel like it's a home from home. Your wellness is at the top of the important list, we hope it is for you too. We want to break down barriers and make That Northern Place the most accessible and friendly studio going.
Our hope is that in building this space we will be able to diversify our timetables to be more flexible in their offerings, to provide specialist classes that benefit the community and have more variation. We would like to see a friendly hub in which we maintain all the brilliantly personalised aspects while creating something that will last a long time.
Most importantly we are going to listen to our customers, Karma Yogis, volunteers and staff along the way to ensure that "That Northern Place" will be an open, creative, ethical, and socially minded venture that people really want to visit whether they do yoga or not!
We couldn't build this without you and over the past 2 years we have ploughed nearly every penny back into making Proper Northern Yoga and it's studio space sustainable for the future. We will continue to our efforts in order to bring about a space that can make a difference.
To make our crowd-funder fun and interesting we have gone with the idea of a raffle, we thought this would add the playful intrigue you know and love about us.
