We are excited to announce that we've opened our new center in downtown Northampton. We are right on Main Street, on the busiest block in town, a few doors down from Thornes Marketplace.
We looked at a lot of locations and decided on this lovely second floor space: We're a bit removed the hustle and bustle of ground floor retail traffic, to create a little bit of peace and space when you come talk to us about your Somatics questions or attend a class, yet easy to reach a few steps from the sidewalk. In fact, we so pleased we now have our very own elevator, to accomodate people of various abilities even better than many ground floor locations.
This location serves as our training center HQ, hosting many of our Professional Training Program classes and smaller professional seminars. We're also pleased we will be able to add more regular weekly classes and workshops of Somatic Exercises, as well as provide a great facility for other practitioners to hold yoga classes, movement workshops, and plenty of other events. The new space is available to rent for your events, in as convenient a location as it gets for downtown Northampton. Get in touch if you'd like host your event here too!
Already, we and our students are really enjoying the ambience of the hardwood floors, the high ceilings and ceiling height windows, providing a quiet, reflective space for Somatic exploration — combined with the easy access to the hustle and bustle of America's #1 Arts Town. Recently, we held a 3-day weekend workshop and on Saturday we all wrapped the inspiring learning to find an evening of joyous Salsa dancing in nearby Pulaski Park. Other afternoons, we've listeneds to folk music in front of the 350 year old First Churches right across the street.
Our new home is located at 104 Main Street, right above Northampton Jewelry and Essentials paper goods / Strada shoe store. Just enter the outside door for Essentials/Strada, go up the stairs, and come on in and say hi. We can't wait to see you there!
