KRISTINA   |   FOUNDER

After a twenty plus year career spent in the field of corporate wellness, from coaching to developing and managing company-wide programs primarily designed to deal with the every day topics of stress and chronic pain, I found myself at a place in my life when it became clear I could no longer put off dealing with my own.  It was only then, in that distinctly empty and terrifying moment, that I finally slowed down just enough to get that what I was missing was simply EVERYTHING. That someone, something in my life that I’d always thought needed to change, was in fact, me. No longer could it wait until tomorrow, the next day or next year, it needed to be right now. Given my field of expertise, it was hardly a proud moment much less a joyful revelation.

 Until I realized for the first time, in a long time, I could breathe.

Eventually, it led me back home to Berks County, and to a concept that was routinely  reinforced throughout my career in corporate wellness. As heavily invested as much of the world is in the preferred methodology and science of western medicine, it does not, in fact, provide any real solution or relief for the way too many people feel. It was from this point that Double Sunrise began to take root, eventually becoming what we are today, and continues to evolve, as we thoughtfully explore our collective perception of wellness and healing.

Walk in, and you will instantly recognize the look and feel of a traditional yoga studio. Stay, and I believe you will discover so much more. Whether it’s a safe place to explore something new, reconnect with your body and your practice, or simply present yourself the time and space to breathe, there’s magic that happens here. And the only requirement is that you show up.

JENNA​

I am 200 hour RYT certified with the Yoga and Ayurveda center. I was introduced to yoga in my early teens and came back to the practice during a time when I needed a sense of comfort and grounding most. This practice changed my life in a way that I cannot verbalize - and I’d love to be a guide for those that are open to experiencing this same thing. Yoga provided me with a space to feel safe in my being, and I communicate that same message to my classes. I am always seeking opportunities to learn and grow more; while my classes are a space for me to lead others through practice, it’s also a space for me to learn from those who practice with me. I am, always have been, and forever will be a student of life and love. Presently, I am working towards a certification in leading meditation. My passion lies in helping others towards a path of self love, self compassion, and self contentment through meditation and yoga practices.
