The mission of Four Corners Yoga + Wellness is to support the Dorchester community and surrounding neighborhoods in taking charge of their health and well-being.
The vision of Four Corners Wellness + Yoga is to provide a space of refuge and revitalization by providing high quality services to members of the community. We value each customer and are committed to conducting our business with the highest level of professionalism and ethical standards. Four Corners Wellness + Yoga will be the place customers seek out for personal care services and yoga.
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 beautiful, vibrant wellness center and widen access to those who could benefit from these resources yet 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 in the community classes began to see improvements in their breath capacity and ability to manage the stresses 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.
The first cohort of the 4 Corners Yoga School began in September of 2016 and will graduate on June 2, 2017.
