Amidst the bustling Mt Airy Village neighborhood, Springboard Studio offers a welcoming, restful space for meditation and yoga. In this vibrant residential community you’ll also find Weaver’s Way Co-op, Big Blue Marble Book Store and High Point Cafe.


Springboard Studio was founded by Caroline Peterson and opened on January 1, 2007 with a public meditation program which has continued to this day. The Springboard Meditation Sangha (SMS) was Incorporated in 2011, as a lay non-profit Buddhist organization with Brian Arnell as the Senior Teacher. The SMS now sponsors the public meditation program at the studio, ongoing Sunday workshops and retreats.
