We never thought we would make it this far!

We didn’t think we would survive the lockdown or this far into 2021 so want to say thank you to everyone who has supported us by donating to our go Fund Me set up by one of our studio members, joining an online class or buying rope since we first shut our doors in March 2020. We had just celebrated our first birthday a week prior to closing, so we have actually been physically closed longer than we have been open.

Covid and a crisis of confidence

I was reminded recently about a bottoming class I taught at the start of lockdown 1.0 and as we enter lockdown 3.0 I’m wondering; will I ever feel that confident in my bottoming abilities again? Because right now I certainly don’t. Inactivity, insomnia, naps, furlough, too many snacks, lack of routine and socialisation, have meant that the great intentions I had to use the time at home to tie more with my partner went out the window. Neither of us quite feeling it at any give time. The adage ‘tomorrow never comes’ comes to mind.

Studio Kokoro Closure due to COVID-19

Due to the current status of the COVID-19 outbreak we have decided to suspend events at Studio Kokoro indefinitely. We will be reviewing the situation and updating you as things progress. Please see our Newsletter and COVID-19 pages for more updates and to be alerted when the situation changes. Thank you to everyone who's supported us at the studio, we hope to have more news for you all soon.

Getting to the Studio update!

We've chosen the studio's location as somewhere people can get to no matter where they're from. You can use direct train or bus services from Nottingham and surrounding areas.  The studio is only a few minutes walk from the bus and train services coming to Mansfield making it really easy to get to even if you don't drive or aren't right on the doorstep.

Welcome to Studio Kokoro

Kokoro (Japanese: 心) and means 'heart', 'mind', 'emotion', 'spirit', 'soul',  we feel is a good sentiment for our studio. Studio Kokoro is something of a dream for us but one we're now making reality. Like everything in our life this is a partnership and a shared dream to which we bring complimentary skills and ambitions. [...]
