A yoga studio which was forced to temporarily close due to Covid-19 speaks on their lockdown silver linings

Yoga, Sutton has been closed to the public since March, but instead of letting lockdown get the better of his studio, Danny Keith decided to use it to his advantage.

Situated at 73 Sutton High Street, the studio's owner, Danny Keith said lockdown has helped him find the time to expand his business.

"I used the time effectively and worked on the plans to expand. I wouldn’t have been able to do that without the time at home," said Danny.

When the studio first announced its closure, owner Danny spoke to Sutton Guardian on how he managed to reduce his outgoings to "almost nothing."

And how the public offered support after hearing about the studio's closure.

"I’ve been blown away by the support from our members and local the community, it’s been amazing," he told Sutton Guardian.

Danny Keith said: "My plan was always to expand the business but it was tough to get started with the day to day running of the business taking priority.

"When we had to close in March, I had nothing but time on my hands to put the plans into motion.

"I am really looking forward to seeing all of our members when we open. I know many haven’t had any yoga for months, it will be great to get them back into the swing of things."

He added: "Health has always been important but I think now more people are starting to realise this.

"If as a result of the Covid scare, we can increase the number of people exercising and taking more care of themselves, we can at least find a positive from the situation."

Yoga, Sutton will reopen on Saturday, November 7.
