The Body Art Barn is a meeting place for the community and serves as not only a Yoga Studio, but it is also a safe haven for many creative movement endeavors.
The Body Art Barn is the result of owner and creator Michelle Dawson’s deep exploration and articulation of the ancient Vedic Arts. Fifteen years of traveling as a working artist landed her on the black dirt in Chester, New York in September of 2011. It was here that she planted herself almost permanently. Her little studio was the first studio in Orange County to offer Aerial Yoga. The art form and her articulation was so well received, she outgrew her sweet little space 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 there in 2014, she has added an outdoor Aerial Yoga deck, a warm Yoga room, aerial hoops and is currently creating a strength training and flexibility room. The depiction of Yoga and Aerial 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. We offer the services of Yoga, Henna and Aerial Yoga which can also be provided off site for your next event as well.
