Serotonin Studio, the trendiest fitness boutique studio in Barcelona, has opened its doors this month! You will be able to practice the latest fitness trends worldwide.
We are lucky to collaborate with them! In their super changing rooms you will find our Khoi products and you can also buy our Solito products!
We wanted to know more about Serotonin Studio, Clara Saladich, the founder of this new space, tells us more about it!
Why did you decide to open Serotonin Studio and how did the idea come to you?
Like everything, ideas come when you really need a change at work level. I was working in a digital marketing agency in London, where I have been living for the last 7 years. I have always been a very active and passionate person about sports and when I was there I would sign up for directed classes because it was what I enjoyed the most and I could combine it with office hours. What fascinated me about fitness studios in London were four differentiating factors: the ease of booking, the excellent customer service, the sugar classes and the super comfortable facilities. In fall 2019 the idea came to me, why not bring this concept home? And that's how it all began, I began to investigate what things were that really added value to people when they went to a gym or studio and I began to make bobbin lace. I have to admit that the confinement was very useful to test the idea of what we wanted to do because I had the opportunity to do classes on Instagram live with our teachers. I saw that people were very well received and their feedback was that they wanted new places with a different style.
The result was to create a brand where there was a 360º vision of well-being, where we not only took into account the physical part but also the mental one, and what better name than Serotonin (serotonin) the happiness hormone, to encompass that vision. The objective of Serotonin is to make you leave each class with a smile from ear to ear, with that feeling of fulfillment and happiness that sport gives you when you have done it enjoying and working.
What kinds of classes can we practice there?
All kinds of fitness classes. We believe that the key is in balance, so in Serotonin you can sign up from Yoga classes of various styles (Hatha, Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Yin and Rocket) to Pilates, cardio training such as HIIT, Boxfit, TRX, Bootcamp and also Fit Sweep. Each person goes through different times in their life, and our bodies are not the same every day. It is important to learn to recognize what the body asks of us and what type of sport will suit us best at that precise moment. Our coaches are true professionals who have a holistic view of the sport, and know how to recommend what type of class may be more suitable for each person, so that they can find a balance in their training and avoid getting crushed with a single activity.
Why did you want to introduce Kriim in your space, what relationship do you see between natural cosmetics and the philosophy of your studio?
For me it is very important that the brands that are present in Serotonin align with our ethos. When we found the Kriim brands, they seemed the perfect ally to have both in changing rooms and in point of sale. Taking care of yourself through sports is very important, but it is also essential to take into account what type of products you use for your body and facial care. The skin is the largest organ in the body and therefore, feeding it with organic and natural ingredients is super important, in the same way that we take care of our diet. Is it true that if you found out that you are eating a product with chemical ingredients, you would automatically reject it? That is the reason why we want to keep Khoi products in the changing rooms, and have Solito, which is Zero Waste solid cosmetics, at our point of sale.
What would you say to someone who has never practiced Yoga to encourage them to try a class at Serotonin Studio?
I would tell you that I invite you to try it, that yoga is a fascinating discipline that not only helps you physically but also mentally, to know yourself better, to challenge yourself and to continue advancing little by little. It is not just a sport but a philosophy of life! - and in case yoga is not your thing, we have other options that will surely fit your profile;)
Thanks a lot!
