Mindfulness is obviously something you both live and breathe. Where did this passion emerge from?
"Mindfulness is becoming such a mainstream word, almost a fashion. We believe in being present. Being present when we talk to someone and actually listening to what they say, being present when we drive somewhere, rather then going on autopilot. We believe in actually tasting the food we eat, rather than swallow and go. This is what mindfulness means to us and the passion emerged from wanting to live this life to the fullest. We've only got one."
How did Happy Melon come about and what makes it unique?
"Happy Melon began in 2015 when we came together wanting more. By then everyone was already doing yoga asana and a lot of people were reaching out to learn how to be more still, be more present, be a little calmer. We wanted to demystify meditation and make it a norm. Happy Melon is a place for connection, where people get together to practice either yoga, pilates and fitness under the big umbrella called mindfulness."
What were the most important elements when designing the studio space?
"The space needs to feel like home. In our main building on High St, the entrance is on the side, down the narrow alley. When you walk in you immediately smell Happy Melon's unique oil blend. There are couches, towels, organic shampoo and conditioner provided for the guests. The bathrooms are spacious and people spend a lot of time getting ready for work. Light, attention to detail and the front of house girls make this place feel like home."
