What is The Back Room?

Located on the outskirts of Forbes, this light-filled and calm space has been lovingly put together by Cherie, Bill & Lenny Stitt (actually Lenny hasn’t done all that much, but I felt he needed to be included.)

Who is behind this?

Cherie (that’s me!) is taking the reins with this venture – I have a passion for contributing to my community, by providing a safe space that is inclusive and welcoming. In a former life I was a Secondary Science teacher, and now now facilitate yoga classes, retreats and workshops. And I love it!

What’s the point?

Heartfelt gatherings, classes and workshops are held in the back room of our home – hence the very original name – and are open to all comers. Apart from regular Pilates and Yoga classes, we aim to host regular uniques event each month or so. Food is part of the service, as are endless cups of tea (because who doesn’t love connecting over a hot cuppa?!)

What else?

Currently we are having a real ‘women’s moment’ so many of our events and get togethers are focussing on filling the cup of women. But as we all know, when a woman is happy, strong and fulfilled, then that spreads out into the whole community of family, friends and acquaintances.

And here’s what some kind folks have said about events in The Back Room

“Hot quiches were better than cold ones :)”

Possibly my Mum

“Keep doing this. It is a magical formula Cherie xxx”

“It was a beautiful morning of women celebrating in their achievements and wisdom, of community and support, of personal stories, of triumphs and sorrows. It was simply wonderful.”
