I have found healing in my life from the benefits of Yoga and Massage Therapy. After running for several years I started to develop a sciatic nerve and piriformis issue that made it almost impossible to run. Through a dedicated yoga practice and receiving massage therapy every two weeks I have been able to start running again in small distances. I am grateful for the healing that I have received from yoga and massage on all levels of mind, body, and spirit. I find great joy and satisfaction from providing the same service to my clients and friends as well as a space of peace, greater awareness, and the opportunities for people in our community to create healing.
My Personal Mission:
Through divinity and inspiration I empower all to create balance, transformation, healing and spiritual peace.
Co Owner/Studio Manager
I have enjoyed working in customer service for 9 years and being in management for 6. I love working with people, so the communication I get to have and the relationships I build every day with our clients and students is what makes me love my job.
I feel very fortunate to be able to work with my mom who is not only my partner at work but one of my best friends.
When I am not at the studio I am with my friends or family hiking, snowshoeing, rock climbing, traveling, or finding something new to try.
I know that when you step into Cradle Your Soul you will feel comfortable, accepted, and peace.
Love and Light to all.
I work at Cradle Your Soul to enrich my life physically, mentally and, spiritually. I also hope to enrich the lives of the clients while working here.

I am compassionate and full of love for all living things. I am a stay at home wife and dog mom to my smile-makers: my amazing husband, and my two wonderful Pomeranians. In my free time, my favorite things are to bake and cook for all the people I love and adore.

I am a high school student and I’ve just started my first job at Cradle Your Soul. I have previously volunteered at the Aquarium and the best part of it was meeting all the different types of people. At Cradle Your Soul I am able to meet new people, create new connections, and enhance my life interactively. And although I am naturally a little reserved, working here has helped me grow out of my comfort zone in a non-pressured and relaxing way. My friends would describe me as an ecstatic person that’s filled with laughter, and I’d like to think that as true. I love music and in my free time I love to play piano, go out with my friends and play volleyball with my team, whom I see as my second family.
Hi, I’m Keelan! I am a Utah Native, I was born and raised in Herriman. I moved to Salt Lake City to study at the University of Utah 5 years ago. My major is in Gender Studies with a minor in Ethnic Studies. I am certified in teaching 7 different styles of yoga and expecting to finish my yoga therapy certification. I am passionate about my self-care and spirituality. I love to express my self creatively and venture into the outdoors as often as I can.
I am a creative person with a positive view on life. I appreciate the beauty of nature and the art of energy. I am an outdoor enthusiast; snowboarding, camping, hiking, etc. - the mountains are my favorite place to be! I plan to travel a lot and see the world.
Currently, I am pursuing an undergrad degree in Journalism & Media Studies at Salt Lake Community College.
I completed my 200RYT Training in 2014 at SLCC which lead to my interest in massage therapy. I wanted to learn more about the body and anatomy so that's what I did! I completed the Master Bodyworker program at UCMT which gives me over 900 hours of massage education. Using my muscles to help heal other people's muscles is the most fulfilling thing I do each day. In conjuncture with yoga, I have all the tools I need to help myself and my clients with all of our preventative care.
I graduated massage in 2009. Started practicing massage in February 2010. I critique every session to the clients preference that they are looking for that day. I do a range of modalities including, deep tissue, trigger point, pregnancy, and Swedish. I have now been practicing for 7 years. My favorite part about massage is having a client walk out saying the pain is gone thank you. Book with me, and I will do my best to help you become pain-free.
I became a Massage Therapist because of my love for massage. I started getting body work while I was still in high school, and I realized how much it decreased my stress and made me feel better. It wasn’t until years later after I had my second child that I realized I wanted to go to school for massage therapy. I graduated from UCMT in 2013, and quickly got a job doing what I love and I’ve been working consistently ever since! I am a very compassionate and sympathetic person and I love helping people feel better. When I’m not working I am spending time with my world; my husband of 15 years and my two kids. I love animals, being outdoors, the beach, traveling, and eating delicious food.
I grew up experiencing the benefits of massage therapy and loved every second of it. I went through a 200 hr yoga teacher training in 2016 and love seeing the benefits that yoga brings to my students. I graduated from Cortiva Institute of Massage Therapy and love being able to serve people through massage. I specialize in deep tissue, trigger point therapy, and cranial sacral therapy. I love doing specific work to help clients transition through injury. Through personal experience I know that massage can help with stress management, anxiety, and sleep disorders. I approach every massage with compassion, service, and healing in mind. Working with the body to heal the individual is my goal as a licensed massage therapist and yoga teacher.

Heather J Johnson, 500 RYT, LMT, AHC
I am the happiest when helping others and learning. I have always been intrigued with how our body systems compliment and support each other in the human body and the part nutrition plays in and keeping our bodies healthy. They are an amazing gift. The therapeutic and physical benefits of massage assist our bodies in healing and being whole. Along with Massage, I am a licensed Foot Zone Practitioner since 2013. I feel Foot Zoning and Massage are a great combination. Besides a general relaxation massage, I love working on the back and neck as well as using various types of massage to help the body release and heal. I enjoy Thai massage, Lymph drainage, and acupressure and like to incorporate them into my massages.
I've always had a passion for assisting others through their healing process whether is recovery from injury, pre or post events, or simply just taking time out for self care. I have been practicing massage therapy for ten years and have a fondness for working with all different populations. I enjoy blending techniques from many different styles of bodywork in order to help my guests achieve their goals for their session. I love the art of Ashiatsu therapy as well as other styles that focus on muscle recovery and overall health and wellness. I think it is very important to practice self care and mindfulness and I believe massage therapy is a great way to not just a great way to take care of muscle health and skin health, but mental health as well.

It was here that she fully learned to let go of judgement and allow everyone to have their own experience. During this time she certified as a Yoga instructor.

My yoga journey began over 10 years ago in Geneva, Switzerland, while I was working for the World Health Organization, when a friend and colleague invited me to join a yoga class she was teaching during lunch. I was hooked! I knew this was what my body needed and my body loved it!
A few years into practicing, I started toying with the idea of becoming certified to be a yoga teacher. Five years later, and half a world away, it finally happened, while I was living in Colombia.
In 2012 I certified as a Holistic Health Coach through IIN, which encompassed everything I believed about health and wellness needing to be integrated through the emotional, energetic, spiritual and physical aspects of our being. Since then, I have continued to study and learn many tools that a I now include in my physical, mental, and emotional wellness toolbox, including; The Emotional Journey, Louise Hay's Heal your Life, Reiki, IDEAL Life Innergy and The Child Validation Process, as well as Yoga.
I am thrilled to be teaching yoga once again and look forward to opportunities to share many of the things I have learned along the way, and most particularly to help others succeed in their desire for total health and wellness.

Alisha fell in love with her yoga practice 9 years ago and immersed herself in the study of yoga. Having experienced the benefits of yoga on and off the mat, she feels heartfelt gratitude for sharing and facilitating a practice for every BODY. Yoga has inspired Alisha to embrace vulnerability, soul connection, and feel a deeper love for humanity as she aspires to stimulate spirit, inner truth, and light within those around her.
She studied Business Management at UVU and is close to finishing her RYT 500. As an RYT 200, she has a desire to deepen her education with continued training, workshops, and svadhyaya (self-study). Alisha has a vision to aid in awakening the energetic connection within others through safe biomechanics, healing, and a connected practice to open hearts, bridge body, mind, and soul, and increase mobility, self-care, and development. Her goal is for each student to leave class feeling peace, balance, present, and a deeper connection to self with an inspiration to take yoga off the mat and into everyday living. Alisha teaches yoga with the belief our world inherently enhances with every awakening to wholehearted living, balanced health, and embracing our own inner teacher.
My yoga journey began while I was pregnant with my youngest son. I intended that yoga to help make pregnancy more comfortable, easier for me. I came away finding deeper connection with my own body and with the world around me. My personal practice has evolved from the vigorous power yoga to a more balanced approach, searching for the alignment that creates length and ease, supporting the developing strength yoga poses offer. I have obtained both the 200 and 500-hour RYT certificates and have been teaching for about 10 years. I have devoted the last 4 years to teaching yoga at a high school; balancing their energy and my love of yoga has been a great challenge. I honor each person’s individual approach to yoga and life as we work within the confines of a yoga mat, a block, a blanket, a strap, searching for the sweet spot of ease and steadiness in everything.
Lacey loves to study and practice all types of yoga, you could say she is a bit obsessed! However, her love affair with yoga did not start out that way... she actually avoided it for close to ten years. She always had a reason or excuse not to try it: not flexible, don't understand the reason for the poses, rather be doing an "intense" workout and burning major calories, etc. In early 2018 her sister was taking a yoga teacher training and talked her into practicing at home every day for weeks, it was hard but she was loving it! She couldn't put her finger on why or how but she was changing. Not just physically but spiritually, emotionally, and the way she felt about herself as well. She says she felt "connected" in a way she never had before. She soon started practicing in studios (CYS being one of her first and a place she felt safe) because she wanted MORE! Then in May of 2019 she completed her own 200 hour YTT. Through her practice and self-study she has overcome decades long struggles with eating disorders and addiction. She has found a deep love and compassion for herself, others, and life that she didn't know existed. She is so excited to be able to teach and share her love of yoga with you! Namaste!
Amber discovered her passion for yoga around five years ago. Starting with one class a week, she gradually began taking more until she was practicing once or twice a day. She made the decision to teach yoga almost two years ago, becoming an Anusara Elements instructor with 200 hours. Anusara is an alignment-based hatha practice, and it is designed to align the heart, mind and body. Along with Anusara yoga, Amber teaches chair yoga in a senior center. She is married to a wonderful tech guy and has two great kids. Disneyland is her jam!
