75 Main Street ~ Cold Spring, NY
A studio with wellbeing at its heart.
Ascend is a wellness lifestyle brand celebrating the things that make life so rich: music, art, yoga, mindfulness, family, community, health, nature and all of the joys of the Hudson Valley.
Through its wellness studio, single-day events, and weekend festivals, Ascend is realizing the holistic vision of its founder Melia Marzollo.
Britta first met Melia in 2013, when she was new to Cold Spring (ex-Brooklynite) and looking for her tribe. Britta found it immediately with Melia and Ascend. Melia was 9 months pregnant teaching Britta a pilates class (#supermom #instantconnection).
Since that day, Britta has been an Ascend loyalist and has since partnered in creating Hudson Valley Field Trips to share the Ascend experience with individuals and companies.
Melia Marzollo, CEO/Founder
With an MFA in Education and certifications in Pilates, Yoga, Yamuna Body Rolling, Stand Up Paddleboard and Holistic Nutrition, Melia first began her wellness teachings in an old converted barn with a wood stove. In 2013, she claimed the most beautiful building and sacred space for the Ascend Center (formerly a Masonic Lodge circa 1864) in the Hudson Valley.
Through Ascend’s programming – daily yoga and pilates classes, workshops, festivals and access to the healing arts – Ascend is realizing the holistic vision of its founder to build an inspiring brand to elevate one’s mind, body and spirit.
Melia and her team will be co-leading our curated wellness outings.
