In their own ways, Saugerties and Woodstock exemplify the mixture of art, commerce, and community that has made the Hudson Valley a distinctly alluring place to live and explore. Marjorie Block, a Saugerties native and tourism director who also happens to work as an artist in Woodstock, is intimately familiar with both communities. She believes that the area's expanding success can be attributed to its willingness to simultaneously respect the past and welcome the future: "There are families who have been here for generations, but newer families are being embraced, newer businesses are finding a home here, and we want that."

  • Stone Wave Yoga: Tending the Flame of Personal and Communal Wellness

    In the summer of 2019, Liz Glover Wilson had just opened the second location of her burgeoning Gardiner yoga studio and wellness campus, Stone Wave Yoga, in Poughkeepsie. Like so many other small business owners in the Hudson Valley, she had no way of knowing that only months later her entire business would fundamentally change. With the pandemic’s economic and personal challenges constantly at her door, however, yoga remained the one thing that Glover Wilson knew she could count on. “A lot of the students who stayed with us this last year are hungry to learn more about the yoga tool kit because they’re seeing that it really does work,” she says.
