July 2012– a storm started brewing with thoughts of yoga, nourishing foods, passionate people (who love what they do and do what they love), a healing space to gather…
August 2012– Kristin (future owner, coach, instructor and visionary for holding space at the Storm and beyond) and Megan (future lead yoga trainer, designer and culinary artist for the Storm) met on a stormy night to come up with the Nourishing Storm concept and logo (you see, it always rained and stormed when these two met, one of the many reasons for the name).
September 2012– This is when Jay, the owner of Moy Yat Kung Fu in Hatboro came into the picture. He offered his beautiful studio for weekly yoga classes and for two years the students, teachers and community grew and grew until …
September 2014 – Kristin and Megan were hanging at their favorite Hatboro health store doing yoga demos when the owner Bonnie told them about the space that opened just next door- they took a peek in and started seeing stars (at 11:11)!
November 2014 (at 11:11am on 11/11) to be precise- Kristin signed the lease for the first Nourishing Storm Yoga Studio, BIG LEAP!
(fast forward 1 year+ having so much fun sharing the practice of yoga and healthy eating with an incredible, growing community and team)
May 2015– Kristin started dreaming of french doors that connected the yoga studio to a cafe, a space to gather for local foods, art and music- she could not stop seeing it …
August 2015– And so as luck would have it, all the approvals went through and the new “Cafe” plans were made to “soften the doors” to the studio and build an even bigger community space.
October 2015 -“Food Day” the NS team opened the french doors to a cafe to complete the original mission “harmony with yoga & food.” The new venture was so graciously received by Hatboro and the surrounding communities. This was the day they started their first 200 Yoga Teacher Training program too!!!
September 2019- Stormy 2 opens, a new studio space steps away from the original studio which now offers massage, teacher training and small group and private training and coaching space.
October 2019- Our first licensee opens “Inspiring Storm” in Warrington, PA as a Yoga & Dance Studio!
The Nourishing Storm team is now comprised of over 30 instructors, juice bar gals and storm ambassadors are having more fun then ever, doing what they love and loving what they do offering weekly classes, monthly events, private and group sessions, parties and a cafe serving up healing sips and bites.
On the horizon, 300 hour teacher training, traveling adventures, corporate wellness programs, more storms and well wherever the call comes from- the sky’s the limit and we are so grateful for everything and everyone who makes the Storm such a loving, healing space AND we are excited for all that is to come …
