We are currently in the process of finding a physical space in downtown Poughkeepsie. We are very interested in an available storefront on Main Street and are looking to raise the funds necessary to lease it. This space will have a welcoming lobby area with a receptionist’s desk for checking in to yoga classes, free hot tea, and a couch by the large storefront windows to encourage people to come in and see what we’re about. The space will have a large, open space for yoga classes and for conducting programming, events, and meetings. The back will have an office area for WPS staff operations, a library, storing equipment, etc. The space we are looking at will also have a full bathroom and kitchen that will allow for a live-in caretaker on a work-exchange system.
Our space will be used for meetings of Daughters of Sarah and other women’s groups.
