About the Firehouse

A little bit about the history of our unique home…

1926 – With the city of Lakewood growing and a need to expand the fire department, City Council purchased the property on Hopkins Ave. and made plans for the construction of a new engine house.

1927 – Engine House No. 3 officially began service, with two officers and eight firemen transferred from Engine House No. 1.

1975 – After a new station was built on Clifton Blvd., Engine House No. 3 was closed, and the space was rented to Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival (now Great Lakes Theater) to be used as office space and costume storage.

1991 – Great Lakes Theater purchased the building, and although they eventually moved their administrative office to Playhouse Square, the company’s costume shop remained in the old firehouse for several years.

2005 – Great Lakes Theater sold the firehouse to Rockport Square, and it served as the sales office during the first two phases of townhome construction. After construction was complete, the firehouse became the community center for Rockport Square residents.

2014 – While the first floor of the firehouse was being reserved for parties and family gatherings, Rockport residents, Molly and Linda Bondellio, noticed that the front room upstairs (originally the bunk room) was going unused. So, they obtained permission to use the upstairs space for practice during completion of their 200-hour yoga teacher training. Upon certification, they began offering a few classes, and that’s how Firehouse Yoga was born!

Today – Molly and fellow teacher/Rockport resident, Nicole McLaughlin-Lublin, continue to organize weekly classes in the upstairs studio. It is their goal that Engine House No. 3 not only remains a neighborhood gem, but also becomes an integral part of the Lakewood yoga community.

So grateful for the sunshine and warmer temps today, that I'm suspending the pre-registration requirement for early a.m. Vinyasa tomorrow! If you're up bright & early and want to join me on the mat, simply drop in at the studio. All levels welcome, 6:30 - 7:30 a.m., $10.

Registration is still open at firehouseyogalakewood.com or via the MindBody app, if you prefer to secure your spot ahead of time.

Namaste,
Nicole McL

Such a treat to host Sofar Sounds: Cleveland at the firehouse this evening! Wonderful people gathering to appreciate live music in a laid back, intimate environment. Liv Lombardi, AJ & the Woods, Blair Lehmkuhl Music, and Shut Your Mouth & Beatbox - SYMAB.com brought the house down, and I got to take the mic for a few minutes to tell the crowd about our welcoming little studio! #yogaforall

So sorry for the last minute change, but a nasty case of vertigo has me down for the count today. I’m going to have to cancel tonight’s classes (6:00 p.m. Vinyasa & 7:15 p.m. Yin). I apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to practicing with you all again when the room stops spinning. 🙂

Namaste 🙏
