The Body Art Barn is a meeting place for the community and serves as not only a Yoga Studio, but is also a safe haven for many creative endeavors. The Body Art Barn is the result of owner and creator Michelle Dawson’s deep exploration and articulation of the ancient Vedic arts of both Henna and Yoga; fifteen years of traveling as a working artist landed her on a black dirt onion field. It was on the Black DIrt that she discovered and mastered the third Body Art modality; her little studio in Chester, New York was the first studio in Orange County to offer Aerial Yoga. The art form and her articulation was so well received that within a year, she outgrew her space on Main Street and became part of the epic renovation of the 200 year old Sears Barn on route 94 in Blooming Grove, New York. Since her opening in 2014, she has added a outdoor Aerial Yoga deck and a hot Yoga room. The depiction of Yoga at the Barn is down to Earth, highly accessible, affordable, and really fun! You have to see it to believe it. This space is something very special.
As a multifaceted facility, we host a variety of events including but not limited to birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, open mics and poetry nights, lectures, retreats and much, much more. We provide in house catering for both large and small events and the services of Yoga, Henna and Aerial Yoga can be provided off site for your next event as well. Feel free to inquire about the vast array of Body Art opportunities!
