MOVEMENT STUDIO: SOMATIC SANCTUARY
The owner, Sarah Grace, had purchased the property with the vision of providing a sacred space for healing. Sarah is specifically trained in healing modalities such as continuum movement and biodynamic craniosacral therapy, and she wanted to provide these unique services in Ojai. One of the standout features of this project is the conservation of a eucalyptus tree INSIDE the interior. Enclosed in glass yet fully exposed to the outside, the tree breathes life into the studio.
In contrast to the straight rigid lines of the building, the outdoor deck is shaped in a circular form to soften the edges and align with the purpose of the movement studio – flow. Drought tolerant landscaping throughout will minimize water usage. Bio-swales and rain gardens will capture storm water run-off. The interior is free of toxins to promote healing, including special treatments for EMF and RF protection.
