From the Attic to Award Winning Studios
Michelle found yoga in her teenage years, she loved the way it made her feel both physically, emotionally and as she has aged, spiritually too. Yoga followed her through out her life, her career as a successful secondary school teacher, her extensive travels and then having a family. Michelle decided to train to teach to enable her to create a home practice but before she knew it, others wanted to train with her.
In 2017 Bliss became Sandstone Yoga as we launched of the new brand ‘Sandstone Yoga & Pilates’ and our unique franchise opportunities. By 2020 we had 4 studios open in Sutton Coldfield, Aldridge, Bearwood & Broadway. The pandemic offered the opportunity to expand our online, on demand and instudio offerings including classes and Teacher Training.
Sandstone has a very powerful spiritual meaning. It is called the stone of creativity; it is a stone of strength within relationships both at home and in the workplace; it helps you to stay focused, happy and discern the truth. Sandstone is the very essence of our Yoga brand.
