I lost my yoga studio during the first year of the pandemic, but I immediately pivoted to doing virtual yoga training until pandemic restrictions were lifted.
Instead of trying to open another yoga studio with all of the overhead, I got the idea to do private, in-home yoga lessons for anyone who is interested.
I had to wait until lockdown restrictions changed to do both virtual and private, in-person lessons, but it wasn’t the longest wait. Doing this wasn’t even my idea in reality, as it was something my parents urged me to do the moment I told them that I wanted to get a yoga training certification. That’s when I went to school to become a yoga trainer and had to justify it with them, while urging them that I would eventually pay back the money I was forced to borrow from the school to get the certification done in the first place. Thankfully, I was able to do that long before losing my studio during the pandemic, but at least I’m doing well again with the virtual yoga sessions combined with the ones I do at clients’ homes. I have one client for instance who just paid to have a new back porch put in with a huge wooden deck. Instead of just having wood railing made for the wood deck, he has these custom rails made out of type 304 stainless steel rebar rods and tie wire. I have seen fence railing made out of stainless steel rebar before, but this was the first time I had seen rebar in a porch deck. It’s always cool to see new and interesting applications of rebar tie wire.
