How Serenbe Owner Steve Nygren Cultivates Wellness

The Editors | April 24, 2019 | People

Serenbe founder Steve Nygren finds peace of mind and body in the rural neighborhood’s surrounding nature.


Do you have a morning ritual? I usually start my day with a walk in the woods.

One thing you’ve done in the last year to change the well-being of Serenbe’s residents? The spa expanded to eight rooms, with an infrared sauna. The yoga studio has room for much larger classes.

What’s your proudest accomplishment at Serenbe? That my three daughters have returned with their husbands to live at and be a part of Serenbe and raise their families here. It reflects the truly multigenerational community we live in.

Serenbe’s newest offerings? Our third neighborhood, Mado, is 50 percent complete, with over 100 homes, a swim club, retail. There’s also the newly opened One Mado office building featuring Serenbe’s fifth restaurant, Halsa, and health and lifestyle providers.

Three things you do to maintain wellness? I eat fresh, local food from Serenbe Farms that rarely touches a vehicle; engage with people every day; and spend time in nature.
