Art•Body•Soul is a new studio opening at 1024 S. Yates Memphis on March 19 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, March 23.

It offers services in the Dalian Method, massage, and energy balancing and clearing.

Spa services and Painting Out Loud, a process art class experience, will be offered at a 20% discount. On Friday, March 23, a ribbon cutting ceremony hosted by the Greater Memphis Chamber will take place at 9 am followed by free yoga classes at 10:30 am and 12 pm. In the afternoon enjoy mini spa sessions from 2-4 pm, or drop by and see what is hanging in the gallery and collect a free giveaway.

Art•Body•Soul is owned by Memphis native Madeleine Newkirk. She was inspired to open the first studio of this kind after attending a five-week retreat in 2010 at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, New York, and becoming a facilitator in the Dalian Method and Painting Out Loud. She has a BA in Studio Art from Tulane University, is currently writing a book, and has been painting since a young age. Her artwork will be showcased through April at the studio. Reproductions of her pieces are available at along with information about classes and services.

Madeleine chose Memphis for her studio because this is home and felt Memphis did not have a place with all these resources under one roof. Her dream to build a spiritual center offering a wide range of opportunities for self-discovery, transformation, and overall well-being became a reality when she found the location at 1024 S. Yates in 2017.

While Madeleine Newkirk has extensive experience as a practitioner and teacher of mindfulness, active meditation, process art, the Dalian Method, and other alternative and complementary healing modalities, she is not a physician, psychologist, psychotherapist, or other licensed health care practitioner, and her services are not licensed by the State of Tennessee.
