It has always been our dream to have our own space, The Upward Spiral Center, a home for healing and transformation in Tampa, FL. Secretly, it was our goal to eventually relocate to the historic Tampa neighborhood of Seminole Heights. Sometimes you don't know how close your dreams actually are...
Through some series of synchronicities, we ended up being offered a building on a main road of traffic with increased visibility that is significantly closer to the homes of several key members of our Upward Spiral team. Close enough, in fact, that now several team members, Nyssa included, can walk or bike easily to work! The price is what we are paying now (so we know we can cover it!) and gives us a lot more space to work with. How could we say no?!?
Our friends at Surgical Alternative are growing quickly too; the timing is perfect for us to be freeing up more space for them. We have truly loved our home for over 3 years in this little-known oasis out in Lutz. With our new retail store and growing list of classes, though, it has become time for us to move on to a place that will give us more exposure and allow us to expand to our full potential.
We are excited to be a part of continuing Tampa's history and helping to make the neighborhood of Seminole Heights even more of a place where people want to come for community and connection. Our new home is a house that was built in the 1940s, now zoned commercially, and it needs a little updating. We will be replacing the floors and light fixtures, making minor structural adjustments for wheelchair accessibility, and then adding furniture and all the other things we need to make it home. It is a decent-sized work order but totally doable. Plus the landlord is an excited and dedicated community builder, as well, and fully supports our efforts.
Our store is temporarily closed, but we are taking appointments. Regular hours will resume August 1st after our grand opening.
Because of these changes and our goal to be in the new space by April 1 or soon after, we are discontinuing our regular store hours for the time being. Regular store hours will resume August 1st after our grand opening. We will post on Facebook and Twitter when we are in for short times and will be available for appointments for services as well as store purchases. Please contact us or book your appointment online. You can even shop in our online store and pick up your order when you come in.
