The 1000 sq. ft. Heart and Soul studio was completed March of 2002. It was built with a lot of easy fluidity. The builder said that the foundation laid out in perfect alignment the very first time, which is very unusual.
The sub-floor system put in was specially picked out for its resilient give, diminishing stress on the skeletal structure for standing poses and pose flows. There is also a special thick pad beneath the wood floor for softer floor support.
The studio faces east, significant for aligning with the rising of the sun (sun = rising consciousness). Plenty of windows for letting in cleansing, purifying light ('enlightenment').
The colors were picked for their healing properties. Interior yellow/gold for healing and protection and exterior green for blending with the environment, healing between the physical world and the spiritual world.
