Jolyn's yoga journey began in the early 1970’s, long before the popularity of yoga studios. She has more than forty years of practice and study. Because of her deep appreciation of yoga and a strong belief in its healing power, she furthered her studies to become certified Yoga Therapist. Jolyn’s also certified in Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery and Reiki. Jolyn loves collaborating with other healers and believes it’s an honor to have the opportunity to guide others towards health and harmony.



Carolyn Maier likes to get lost. Lost in a good book, lost in the beauty of a sunset, or on a ranch with the smell of horses. She teaches therapeutic equine yoga and is certified with the Yoga Alliance as an RYT 200. She is certified in Parkinson Wellness Recovery (PWR!) and Reiki. Carolyn is also an artist, and was one of the creators of a featured art installation at the World Parkinson Congress entitled Forging Resilience: Capturing Moments: Living Life with Parkinson’s. One of her favorite mediums is photography, which she finds provides the perfect fusion between creative expression, healing, and documentation. She holds a BA from Boston College and an MPA from the University of Montana and is a graduate of Rocky Mountain School of Photography..
