Project Description

symptomsoftheshift

The Shift is a studio with unlimited potential. My goal is to take the class offerings that are currently at the studio and enhance the daily programs to include activities for all ages, with class times and sizes unique to the particular intention. To fill an important gap in this alternative practice, the niche of The Shift will be addressing the needs we have as an aging community—for a welcoming location where people of all ages can find something to meet their needs to enhance their lives, mentally, physically, and soulfully.

My goals for all money raised are to a) expand the current ongoing class schedule b) engage the community by taking The Shift "on the road" c) offer additional workshops, immersions, trainings, etc. (including healthy living, balance classes, additional kids classes, sound healing, shamanic circles, short exercise classes for the workout population, and more) and d) serving as an outpost for services aligned with our vision (resource consultations, massage & bodywork, expressive arts, meditation, and birth & death counseling). Whether you currently practice yoga, or are just beginning to try out new modalities to serve your ultimate well-being, The Shift Studio will be your hub for living well.

I see a space where people can come to a field of play and bring their own unique needs to a listening ear, to teachers who want to make a difference, to a resource library and space of love.

If The Shift sounds like something you need to experience, it is! NOW is a good time to become a part of it with me. Come get down to UNBUSYness with us.

What do we need?
In addition to the cost of ownership, I will be sacrificing my previous source of income so that I may grow the studio.

I will need to ensure I have costs covered for: business setup, marketing, liability insurance, rent, a buffer for living expenses, association & event fees.

In the first 3 months, I will be focusing on building trust and meeting dedicated students, teachers, and supporters, sharing our vision within our community.

We need your financial backing and contributions to lift The Shift! All donations will be applied to business expenses and to create pathways with local businesses to expand the offerings of the studio.

At the head of this movement, I want to embody your needs and invigorate the limbs, strengthen the gut, and give us all an opportunity to give back! I look forward to our next encounter.

Spare the Change & Be the Change
Thank you for any donation, amounts large and small, to create the ripple and bring this livelihood into fruition!

Another form of support would be to share my link and spread the word about my cause! Hey, Shift Happens!

Please hold me, my daughter and the families of The Shift Studio in your loving awareness so that we can fully embrace this evolution.

The Project FAQs

The biggest challenges have the biggest solutions. At this time, we are in Phase II. I have purchased my LLC, Follow Your Bliss, have met with the landlords and drafted a new lease, have a Meet & Greet scheduled with current students and will be looking forward to hosting a Grand Re-Opening in the spring. It is my understanding that the risk is mine to own. Currently the studio pays for itself with 13 classes a week, but there is not much for income. I am a single mother who is currently pooling living expenses with my father to lower costs. In my experience, I know that the biggest challenge for the first few months will be building trust, communicating with affiliates, and filling the shoes of Emily Miller (the studio's current owner).
