Motion Center offers high-quality yoga, dance, and massage therapy, in a friendly, non-competitive atmosphere.
We believe that yoga, dance and massage therapy are appropriate for everyone, regardless of age or physical health. We are committed to helping students and clients find the class or massage therapy style that is beneficial and safe for them.
Our teachers and therapists share a commitment to growing in their practice, and to supporting students' exploration of yoga, movement and health. Our massage therapists are licensed in Rhode Island, hold special certifications in the modalities they practice, and adhere to the American Massage Therapy Association’s Code of Ethics.
Directors Kaeli Sutton and Naama Gidron share a love of movement and discovery through the body. Each has a background in dance and has been studying yoga for more than 15 years. They met in 2005 and became instant friends and colleagues.
Kaeli and Naama have created a serene and contemporary center where students can experience the depth of the practice of yoga, and can explore the many ways their physical form informs wellbeing and self-knowledge.
"We wanted to create something that we felt was missing here in Providence: an urban oasis offering various styles of yoga, dance and massage therapy. We believe that by offering a range of classes and bodywork styles, each person that comes through our door can find the modality that best supports them, and a healthy and non-competitive community can be built.”
