About Me

Emily Ann Polonus
Georgia Licensed Massage Therapist (GAMT002611)
Level 1 Certified Forrest Yoga Teacher, RYT-200
Essential Oil Educator and Business Leader

I am an agent of positive change.  My mission is to educate, empower and inspire people to take control of their own wellness by sharing my skills, knowledge and experience accumulated over years of honing my focus and fascination in the realm of the natural healing arts.  I have been fortunate enough to study and practice with a variety of renowned healers in the fields of yoga, meditation, and bodywork world-wide and as a result weave a unique combination of skills and understanding into my work in Forrest Yoga, Thai Massage, Myofascial Bodywork, Aromatherapy and Essential Oils.  I simply just want to help people feel better by offering practical tools to cultivate more peace and freedom in life. 

My approach in bodywork and business is energetically sensitive and I work to understand and meet people where they are. I am committed to a path of learning,  positive mindset and personal development and creating and sharing good vibes at home in Savannah, GA and around the globe.
