MEET WHITNEY

Jaclyn Najjar: How long have you been in the Yoga/Wellness Industry, and how long have you owned Sojourn Healing Collective?

Whitney Yarnall: I have been involved in this industry in different capacities for about 10 years now. I started the Sojourn Community in 2016; we held classes, workshops, gatherings. However, we officially opened doors to our healing center in September 2017.


JN: What inspired you to first get into this industry?

WY: My own healing journey drew me into the industry.

JN: What do you love about owning Sojourn?

WY: I love connecting with the people in our community, and I love feeling like I created something that everyone was looking for.

JN: Do you have any tips for people who are interested in yoga and wellness but haven't taken the plunge yet?

WY: Yes, start before you're "ready." One thing I hear all the time is "I'm not quite ready to do ___" insert; yoga, meditation, healing, etc. Or, "I'm not good at meditating, or stretching." Well, I assure you that no one came out of the womb doing any of these things. It is constant practice to live a mindful life, and it is always worth it. I encourage anyone who has been considering trying any of those things, just try showing up. That's 95% of the work!


JN: What types of services does Sojourn offer?

WY: We offer a variety of yoga and meditation classes designed to be approachable and accessible to everyone. We also offer workshops on topics ranging from healing emotionally and physically, manifesting desires, cultivating creativity and overall becoming a higher version of yourself. We have Private Healing Sessions: Massage, Reiki, Crystal Healing, Intuitive Guidance, Healing Touch, Yoga Therapy, Shamanic Journeys and more. We are truly a collective of healers who want to serve the community.

JN: Is there anything coming up there that we can get excited about?

WY: We have workshops every week that we are excited about! But I'm very excited to be offering my signature workshop on Manifesting: The Art of Getting What You Want on July 7th from 1-3pm!
