From The Heart Yoga – Grand Rapids, Michigan

1
00:00:04,940 –> 00:00:08,610
started back in 97 we were both teaching

2
00:00:08,610 –> 00:00:11,929
at a dominican center and Mary wood and

3
00:00:11,929 –> 00:00:16,560
Benjy came up with the name and it was

4
00:00:16,560 –> 00:00:18,420
really just a name at that point and

5
00:00:18,420 –> 00:00:21,330
then uh bassani and associates had some

6
00:00:21,330 –> 00:00:23,449
buildings come up on Fulton Street and

7
00:00:23,449 –> 00:00:26,730
we looked at one of the buildings in

8
00:00:26,730 –> 00:00:29,220
particular and really liked it and so we

9
00:00:29,220 –> 00:00:31,019
got involved in our first project with

10
00:00:31,019 –> 00:00:34,469
mizani and that became from the heart

11
00:00:34,469 –> 00:00:36,180
yoga center and the idea behind it was

12
00:00:36,180 –> 00:00:38,850
to have a holistic center so we had

13
00:00:38,850 –> 00:00:41,480
massage available nutritional counseling

14
00:00:41,480 –> 00:00:46,410
active pressure tai chi yoga and we have

15
00:00:46,410 –> 00:00:49,829
always wanted to have to Studios so that

16
00:00:49,829 –> 00:00:51,840
we could let the Tai Chi expand on its

17
00:00:51,840 –> 00:00:53,760
own and keep the yoga going because

18
00:00:53,760 –> 00:00:58,109
yoga’s very popular here it is a

19
00:00:58,109 –> 00:01:00,899
beautiful place it really is more

20
00:01:00,899 –> 00:01:03,329
beautiful than I thought it was could be

21
00:01:03,329 –> 00:01:06,720
and the idea of working again with

22
00:01:06,720 –> 00:01:09,990
bassani because in yoga you’re you’re

23
00:01:09,990 –> 00:01:12,110
cultivating a certain approach to life

24
00:01:12,110 –> 00:01:14,580
taking care of your body but also taking

25
00:01:14,580 –> 00:01:15,480
care of the environment

26
00:01:15,480 –> 00:01:19,530
and he does a wonderful job at doing

27
00:01:19,530 –> 00:01:21,120
things as green as possible especially

28
00:01:21,120 –> 00:01:26,550
in such an old building this building

29
00:01:26,550 –> 00:01:30,120

30
00:01:30,120 –> 00:01:34,020
to have the two studios to be able to

31
00:01:34,020 –> 00:01:36,360
cultivate the Tai Chi school you know as

32
00:01:36,360 –> 00:01:40,410

33
00:01:40,410 –> 00:01:43,260

00:01:45,000 –> 00:01:47,660
to live upstairs and have that wonderful

36
00:01:47,660 –> 00:01:50,790
garden area was so important to us to

37
00:01:50,790 –> 00:01:54,000
share nature gum in the classes to have

38
00:01:54,000 –> 00:01:57,410

39
00:01:58,170 –> 00:02:00,540
