Emily Stewart and Suzy McCalley grew up in very different circumstances; one grew up amid the hectic bustle of a family-owned newspaper business in Alabama; the other traveled through Brazil with parents who were professional musicians. But they both came to a have mutual love of the arts and health and opened The Breathing Room
together to promote that passion.
The Breathing Room is actually made up of a lot of rooms, each of which house different services. Open exercise areas host yoga and dance classes while private rooms allow visitors to relax as they enjoy massages, reiki, or making duck faces into a mirror when alone. Some of the rooms even serve as studios for resident artists, who produce their own work or provide artistic services such as music therapy and photography.
