The River Studio is located at 332 Water Street, Hallowell, overlooking the Kennebec River. The room is 24 by 24 feet. The river and meditative gardens are the focal points of the view through the six-by-nine-foot oval window. Smaller elevated windows on two sides offer light and privacy at the same time. The floor is bamboo hardwood with radiant floor heating. The ceiling is vaulted and rounded with warm wood. The room is lighted with beautiful handmade sconces.
The room is absolutely empty and has been used for dance and movement classes, yoga, chanting, workshops, and groups of various sizes. Chairs and tables are available as needed. Just outside the room off the entryway is a large wheelchair-accessible bathroom. There is ample parking.
