What happened today and how I'm fixing it.
I regret to inform you that I would like to cancel my membership with your studio permanently. I used to really enjoy coming there and even started to feel a little part of the community. I've been there for a few years now. Since becoming pregnant I have had a very tough time and needed to cut down to only doing gentle. through the classes I've taken I receive nothing but stares, criticism and dirty looks from other members. Being six months pregnant is a challenging time for any woman when you feel not yourself and your confidence isn't at its highest. Gentle was
my one escape during the day to feel active and a little more like myself. What happened today is the last straw and I just can't ever come back. I completed Cindy Walker's is gentle at 11. After class I ran into her in the bathroom and she complemented me on coming and made note of how healthy the practice was for my pregnancy and my unborn child, after I left the bathroom I heard a woman gossiping with her about my pregnancy and how what I was doing is unhealthy for my child, yet another criticism to put me down in the studio. Afterwards Cindy came to me telling me not to lay flat on my back in her class anymore which I found very unsettling because throughout the class I did sided ways positions and never laid on my back for longer than a few seconds, took my Savanna on the left side which is most beneficial side with most circulation. I've spent a lot of time speaking to my doctor and making sure I was very aware of the appropriate and safe positions for me and the baby. I feel an endless amount of criticism and judgment in the studio and I don't think I can ever get over it. So with that said please cancel my membership because I will not be back, I need to find a more supportive and loving place to spend my time and money.#endmomshaming#illfindmyplace#nojudgmentsneeded#mindyourownbuisness#losgatoshaters#newstudio#betterstudiosoon#byeveryone

• Studio Growth • Last Year (and the years before that) I was working out of my tiny living room. This year I have been working out of my slightly larger living room. Starting next month I will move into my own private, bright and new studio space! So grateful for this continued growth and positive changes in my life, and I owe so much of it to my art supporters out there. Thank you guys #gastownstudio#artistspace#danamooneyart#artiststudio#lifechanges
