Licensed massage therapist and Move2Wellness owner Rob Young envisioned his business as a place where clients could come to adjust “their own inner compass.” This compass comprises his company’s logo, which is fitting given that his relaxing massage work charts such a direct course for his customers to follow in order to feel renewed. Alongside Rob is a team of professionals equally well versed in the healing arts, including yoga instructors, reiki practitioners, a naturopathic physician, and a qi gong instructor.
The dynamic instructors at each of the six centers teach a holistic approach to yoga and noncombative martial arts that targets flexibility, strength, breathing, and energy sensitivity. Schedules vary from studio to studio, with regular open-level classes such as those at BR Holistic Healing integrating a core regimen of stretching, breathing, and strengthening postures that improve keg-stand techniques tremendously. Vibration sessions at the Body & Brain Center in Metuchen and Dahn Yoga in Closter and Oradell can release stagnant energy and recharge bodies to take on exhausting second jobs impersonating the Energizer bunny at birthday parties. Instructors monitor students' progress, suggesting home-workout plans tailored to personal strengths and vulnerability to fire.
