Am new to this site, after reading pages and pages!!
Thanks for opening my post :-)
Just a little bit about me: I am 29 and based in London. I currently work as an office and property manager, I have 12 years experience within office management/secretarial and personal assisting. I am a qualified legal secretary, but found the environment very boring so I went into management in more faster past sectors. I have always been very proactive andvhavevalways worked full time, inhale also do mobile spray tanning in the evenings (which is not profitable and rather time consuming after a hard day at work!)
Due to my various positions, most of them being office based, and stressful and fast paced environments, I appreciate holistic relaxations.
Getting to the point, London is known to be a workaholic city with many people in a routine of work, chores and sleep --- no relaxation! Like me, I do not have time to 'chill out' and yoga and meditation has become extremly popular in the past century, with more and more people joining which indicates a need for relaxation.
Unfortunately we are a country that is prone to depression, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, SAD, and general tiredness and stress.
I had an idea to create a yoga/meditation bus (similar to a mobile library) where people could come on there lunch hours for 30 minute sessions????
Any suggestions/alternative suggestions most welcome!

Hi, I like your idea but again, I am Asian, I am Buddhist so I would like that sort of thing. However think about your target audience. Who do you aim at? How much they are willing to pay? Officers... will they sacrifice 30' lunch break for this instead of a quick sandwiches? I like yoga but I still prefer my lunch, sorry! Also think about how many people can fit on your bus so how much money you can get from 1 lunch break? Would it be enough to cover the cost of fuel, buy the bus, hire the instructor, admin...
However I would like to have a zen trip to the countryside (obviously in the summer) and yoga... Maybe this could be idea for event / group booking / team buiding...? Not sure but you just ask for suggestion... Here is mine :-)
