This understanding of the purity and goodness of nature has given her immense love for the planet and its inhabitants. Life holds intrinsic value beyond anything she can comprehend, and yoga lets her bask in the power of our oneness. Jolena believes there are dark forces in this world.

Yomassage was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to therapeutic touch. In order to make this happen, we created a modality in which clients can receive touch in a small group setting. In addition to offering massage at an accessible rate, Yomassage classes appeal to more people because they are fully clothed and offered in a safe environment.
The “Yo” in Yomassage is based on the principles of yoga: focus on the breath (pranayama) and the yogic philosophy of looking within. The combination of touch, gentle stretch, and mindfulness provide an avenue for relaxation and healing.Yomassage Therapists are trained to make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcome throughout the entire class. When you walk in the room, you will be greeted with warm smiles. Your therapist will walk you through a series of comfortable and supported Yomassage positions that will be held for 5-10 minutes. While you are relaxing in these positions, your therapist will guide you through breathwork and mindfulness exercises as they walk around and massage you in each position. You will end the class having received a full body massage, and feeling a state of ultimate relaxation.
Yomassage classes are kept small so each client receives individual attention from their therapist. One therapist can serve up to 5 clients in a single session, and up to 10 clients if they have an assistant. Clients can expect a warm room with mood lighting and soft music. Everything will be provided for you, so there is no need to bring anything. Yomassage classes are suitable for all levels, no experience required.For more information and to book a class please follow linkhttps://www.studiotherapeutic.com/classes

Soul En Route Yoga
Sara found her soul journey with yoga in 2012 when she began participating in community-based classes. She noticed how free she felt from herself after each class and, as someone who battles with anxiety, yoga helped Sara to release. Despite the benefits she found from yoga, Sara noticed that when she entered westernized spaces of practice, she oftentimes felt invisible or isolated as she was often the only womyn of color. Passionate about social justice and creating space for POC, Sara decided that instead of "asking for a seat at the table, I will become my own damn table!"
Enter her yoga organization, Soul En Route Yoga (pronounced Soul On Root): A space where womyn* of color can focus on the within, release, and find nourishment for their soul, mind, body, and well-being.
As a certified 200 hour yoga instructor, Sara brings yoga to communities of color. Her style is vinyasa flow (breath to movement) themed with Neo-Soul/R&B music that focuses on the intersections of body, mind, spirit, and the environment which we are in. Her classes are described as accessible, inclusive, warm and inviting and are suitable for all body types, and ability levels.
*womyn: to resist the binary and honor the many ways we show up. This includes all sexualities, genders, gender non-conforming and trans folx too.

Kim was initially drawn to yoga during her earlier years as a ballet dancer as a way to cross train and recover from injuries, but it wasn't until several years later that she soon discovered there was so much more to yoga than just a good workout and laying in savasana at the end of class. She found yoga as a healthy outlet to reduce stress and anxiety and really started to discover what it meant to "go inward" and discover the quiet of the inner self. Yoga has allowed her to embrace letting go of things that do not serve oneself and to have an open mind and work towards manifesting the path and life you want. Having experienced such a dramatic shift during her yoga practice, Kim wanted to share this experience with others and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Brett Larkin in summer of 2018. Her classes are upbeat and challenging, but also with a focus on meditation, breathwork and trying to quiet the inner "monkey mind" that we all experience on a daily basis. She wants to be able to have her students experience the calm sense they feel at the end of yoga class all throughout their day and to be able to have the skills to tap into this on their own when needed. As both a student and a teacher, Kim continues to grow her daily yoga practice and to pass along her knowledge to others. She will also be continuing her yoga teacher education with the start of her 300 hour certification in September 2019.
