Australia - Nalini Tebbey owns and runs Floating Lotus, a yoga studio based in Helensvale, on Australia’s Gold Coast, offering a busy weekly schedule of 36 yoga, pilates and meditation classes.
Recently, helping to create a harmonious ambience in the studio have been six Astera Titan Tubes.
The business had just moved into a tranquil new premises with large windows, lots of incoming natural light and panoramic views, a fully conducive environment for relaxation and concentration, when the coronavirus pandemic and resultant lockdown meant the doors had to be temporarily closed to the public. Ever resourceful, Nalini started streaming her classes.
The Studio space needed additional lighting to keep up the quality and style associated with Floating Lotus. Nalini wanted her broadcasts to look polished and professional and Astera Titan tubes were recommended, and then sourced from the ULA Group, Astera’s Australian distributor.
“I needed good skin tones and lighting that added a subtle glow, not too harsh, just a very nice quality of light,” explained Nalini.
Six Titan Tubes are placed in an arc on the floor around Nalini for a typical streaming session.
This installation is further enhanced by the elegant appearance of the Titan Tubes themselves, which look comfortable in the geometry of the yoga space. From some camera angles the lights are on show, so the aesthetics of the fixtures themselves were also important.
Keeping her business running via streaming and social media during the lockdown has been crucial, comments Nalini. Currently, plans are to continue online until the studio can reopen in mid-June, which will be with reduced numbers, so streaming additional sessions to meet demand is still an option.
