WNT founder and manager Jennie Duck shares how we decided on a beautiful new studio floor and the teamwork that made it happen
I always hated laminate flooring. It had been suggested that it would be a good alternative to our carpet a couple of years back as we were starting to offer more classes as well as treatments and I pretty much flatly refused. We ended up going with a foam interim - sounds awful but actually worked well for classes and looked quite good. But it was a faff for treatments since it needed protective mats and not the most durable option in the long term so back to the drawing board...
Then I discovered laminate can be nice!!! Who knew??! In fact it can be really lovely - like the oak effect that we went for as pictured here.
So it was all hands on deck to get the room cleared out and then reconstituted with minimal disruption to the clinic and classes. Our team in action - I stayed 400miles away in Scotland and kept in tune with progress. My husband travelled down to put the flooring in - a mammoth job over a long weekend with 4am starts and late nights. Thank goodness he loves me enough to see it through, as old-man-like he was on arrival home with sore knees from kneeling and a tired body.
Again I give my thanks that the team at WNT is so much a team and the comaraderie and engagment is there to make decisions together (once I open my mind to the options of course ;-) and carry out work to make things happen.
Everyone is happy with the look and the first round of students have enjoyed classes on it so we are excited and optimistic that it is a great new chapter for us in our life as a yoga, tai chi, qigong and (soon) Feldenkrais studio as well as a clinic for treatments.
