Months ago, when Tanya and I were just in the planning stages of Free Heart, we knew a retail component to the business was something we wanted to work towards, but we had it in or long-term plans. And then in early 2016 Kim Racine and Linda Gernert, two of the business-owners of the NoCo cooperative, asked us if we would be interested in sharing a retail space in their beautiful little shop. Tanya had already been teaching classes periodically at NoCo for several months on her own, and she had cropped there many times in the past, so she knew what an amazing opportunity we had been given. We would have the perfect space to teach classes, an inspiring creative space from which to work, and a little corner of heaven to set up shop! We just knew we couldn’t pass it up so we fast-tracked the retail plan and jumped on board. We officially joined the cooperative on April 1, and we couldn't be more excited.
We’d like to invite all our friends and past students to come visit us at NoCo soon. Many of you have already been there, and I know some of you are regulars, but for those of you who haven’t yet visited, let me tell you a little about what you’ll find there:
