If you have been following this blog for a while you are probably aware that The Red Barn Cooperative is a Red Barn Coaching initiative, a seed of an idea about a cooperative of people coming together with the common goal of providing nourishment, in all it’s guises, to the world’s communities.
The dialogue and ideas we share on this blog culminate The Red Barn vision; it began as an invitation to, coaches, wellness professionals, educators, eco warriors, visionaries, industrial designers, growers of produce, and anyone with a will to nourish minds, hearts, bodies and souls to contribute their knowledge so we can all learn to live well, simply and vibrantly.
The broader dream and vision is to physically bring together a cooperative of trades under one roof. A place where you would feel rejuvenated by walking through a stand of fresh flowers, where you could sip a cup of coffee, purchase organic produce, visit an eco store, have a coaching session, get a massage and take part in some physical fitness, Martial Arts, Pilates or other modalities.
This blog was the first manifestation of that dream and I always imagined the cooperative coming together in the order that it flowed in my mind, I even spoke with a florist to see if we could co-locate our businesses. So with my own personal reluctance to attend a gym, I didn’t ever expect that it would be the ‘body’ part of this vision that would arrive first, but then I didn’t imagine that two close friends would have similar dreams and want to purchase the Pilates and Gyrotonic business above my office.
After approximately 6 weeks of owning that business, today the three of us find ourselves 12 days out from the launch of ‘RBC ONE‘, a simple cooperative approach to the healthy care of your mind, body, spirit and heart.
The concept is a simple one. Our awesome clients arrive at the space and choose their activity, (Life coaching, Business Coaching, Pilates, Gyrotonic or Stress Management) & meet their instructor/teacher or coach to experience beneficial & rewarding results.
If they are just looking to increase their core strength with a Pilates teacher, that’s great, and if they wish to combine that with some additional stress management tools – that works too. Maybe they are wondering about nutrition, and if that is the case they can drop into one of our monthly ‘whole health’ educational events on the topic. We will also have monthly ‘Community Table’ events where folks can just drop in and take part in our ‘wish bowl’ activity, where we will talk about what is needed or desired in our lives – quite possibly over a glass of wine!
RBC One has a diverse team, 9 people strong, working across many healthy disciplines that include Pilates, Gyrotonic, Co-Active coaching and educational platforms. With each encouraging professional able to design a quality, personalized experience for each client entirely based on their wants, needs and goals.
We launch on 09.09.09 at 6.30pm, an auspicious date and time! And if you are local we would love to see you at our small soiree just RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
So while we may not have a florist at our entrance, we do have the beginnings of a charming herb garden and I thank you all for being part of that original seed of an idea. For reading this blog, and being here today as we embark on the next chapter of the cooperative; creating a healthy resource, and integrated approach to the care of our lives. I appreciate you very much.
Looking forward to my own Pilates session, with one of our wonderful teachers in the morning!
