Living History

159 Sutton Street on the West Side of Providence, R.I. was built in 1875 in the Second Empire style. It is known as the Barnaby Castle Carriage House. A non-commercial Pop-Up/Gallery space on the ground floor operated from 2015-2022. It now continues in that spirit plus offering Sound Healing, healing movement classes/workshops; a 2nd floor short term residential rental; and event/location rental.

The carriage house and main house (aka the Barnaby Castle) were designed by Stone & Carpenter for Jerothmal B. Barnaby and his family.

Our Classes

Peaked Hill Studio was established on Martha's Vineyard in 2013 and has been offering classes centered on pro-active healing from movement to Sound Healing and more. We welcome anyone who is interested in offering healing-based workshops or classes to contact us. Studio owner Valerie Sonnenthal offers biomechanically-based yoga, a therapeutic practice that works from the joints to create mobility, resets your nervous system and diminish pain. Valerie, a core Rev6 instructor, looks forward to introducing a practice that "will help you build muscle as you revitalize your fascia, regenerate your nervous system, and tune up your brain."

Pat Higgins, with over 30 years of experience, will teach Qigong. Check for monthly Restorative Sound Journeys.
