Why a new website? LOTS of reasons, including improved content and easier navigation (I hope!). Although something like this is never ready (perfectionist over here), it's getting there and I'm ready to share it with the world. I think it paints a picture of my vision and what's to come. Here’s your in-depth tutorial on navigating the new site so you don’t miss a thing!
Let’s start from the top navigation bar...
“Home” - Finally, some video content! This was a long time coming and definitely worth it. This video plays on repeat without volume, but don’t worry, you can view the entire video with sound on “The Curriculum” page. If you keep scrolling down, you’ll see one of my favorite videos from the former Charter school where I began my LA teaching career, CWC Mar Vista. It holds a special place in my heart. You’ll see why:)
The Curriculum - I love this page because it’s simple. Instead of an endless amount of writing explaining the curriculum (that few people actually read) there is now a video that takes you inside a B&L class. Perfect for our short attention spans. Below the video you’ll see “The Benefits of the Breathe & Learn Approach”. Hover your mouse over each colored circle and a short explanation will appear.
A Note from Joanie - A little note about my journey and dream so you can get to know me a bit better.
“Classes” - This is just a little peek into our offerings. In order to learn more and view the full schedule, you’ll need to create an account.
Meet the Teachers - Our teachers are amazing and have a ton of experience with #kids, #yoga and #mindfulness. It’s really neat to read about their path and how it led them to B&L. Keep an eye out on the schedule for these talented ladies. You’ll be seeing more of them in 2019!
“Book Online” - Possibly your new favorite tab. This is where life becomes easier (for you and me!). View the schedule, choose your class, enroll, receive confirmation, smile. You can also, click on “My Account” to view your booking and payment history.
“Shop” - Well, maybe this should be a favorite tab too. At the moment, our youth baseball tees are on sale and we have a B&L trucker hat with your name on it.
Well, there it is. The site is live and goal number one for December is complete. While much more work still lies ahead, I’m proud that I took the first step. And, I cannot possibly close this out without a VERY special thanks to my other half for spending most of his waking hours on this site over the past few weeks - including patiently answering my questions, brainstorming and troubleshooting. Learning an entire new platform and backend was a little daunting at first, but it’s probably good for my brain and definitely for my sanity.
