COMING IN FALL 2016!
Our mission is to make yoga and wellness resources accessible to all people in our communities. We offer a wide variety of yoga & wellness classes and therapeutic massage treatments for health, healing and peace of mind. We strongly believe that when we are healthy, we are better able to bring our best to life's challenges with connection, ease and vitality.
4 Corners Yoga + Wellness began as an idea in co-founders Christine Rose and Karuna O'Donnell's 10 ft. x 10 ft. shared space at The Meeting Point in Jamaica Plain. They had a need for space since their individual practices of massage and yoga were thriving. They began to identify communities with no yoga and massage studios that could support a world class wellness center and widen access to those who could benefit from these resources and can't readily afford these services. Dorchester was their first choice as Christine is a resident and Karuna has worked in Dorchester as a teaching artist and yoga teacher for a decade. We planted the idea of a body positive, welcoming, accessible and culturally affirming community of practice. With the help of the Montserrat Aspirers Inc. and Hands To Heart Center, Yoga For the People, they started teaching weekly yoga classes and offering chair massage in February of 2016. People if the community classes began to see improvements in their breath capacity and abilty to manage the stress of daily life. Children were coming to class with their parent's and practicing with focus. Word of mouth spread and many people began to bring those who they thought would benefit from the yoga classes and massage.
