SERENE was created out of an intention.
Sparked by Dr Wayne Dyer’s book The Power of Intention, model/actress Millana Snow set a goal to start a business she could be truly proud of. Launching as a monthly rooftop yoga and brunch summer series for women, she began seeing the impact of bringing women together and knew there many other experiences to be had. In early 2013, Millana partnered with media and social entrepreneur Erin Ralph to create SERENE Social, a wellness and lifestyle membership network featuring a digital hub. Together they share the desire to create a global community and social movement backed by enriching programs, events and content and a platform where women are supported to live more conscious, holistically balanced and purposeful lives to then unite, empower and enlighten the world around them. SERENE is currently based in New York City with locations in Los Angeles and London.
