Vitalize is an experiment in conscious, creative community. All programs are created by those who are housed within the studio. Together, we create a heart-centered and peaceful, yet vibrant and joyful space to heal, create change, and assist others in their growth. Vitalize is dedicated to the principles of fair exchange, community involvement, mutual respect, and integrity.
Vitalize Community and Healing Arts Studio, founded in 2010, is an outgrowth of the efforts of three women who connected through their service to families that began with the creation of Utah Prenatal Massage Association (UPMA) in 2007.
Vitalize is dedicated to supporting transformation in our community.
The studio was created to provide a space where people can gather in peace to share their knowledge, gifts, and passions to assist others in transformation.We believe that transformation occurs through connection with our inner selves and with others. From our personal transformations we affect the world around us in ever widening circles.
Karen Salas Wheeler, Angela Rhinehart and Monica Faux-Kota
Angela took over sole ownership of the studio in 2014, and while Monica and Karen have moved out of studio ownership, they remain engaged participants in our community. Monica and Angela continue to remain active in the Utah Prenatal Massage Association.
Angela has immense gratitude for Giuliana Serena who assisted her as Studio Manager from 2014-2016. Her integrity, creativity and vision helped further shape the organization and build our relationships within the community.
In February of 2016, Angela welcomed Alicia Moonbeam as a new partner and co-creator at Vitalize. Together they made the move over to the beautiful new space in the community of Millcreek and further the studio’s growth. Alicia teaches yoga at the studio (more info here). She brings her vision, passion and unique skills to contribute to the vibrancy of the space. She is working on her own special after school program for teens as one of her contributions to our community.
Welcome to our studio!
“My hope is that all who enter are able to experience a coherent state while they are here, so that they can go back out into the world feeling more able to handle whatever they need to deal with and have more compassionate interaction with others.”
Angela is one of the co-founders of both Vitalize Community Studio and the Utah Prenatal Massage Association.
She practices massage on the Healing Arts side of our Studio, teaches “Present and Playful Family Yoga”, and hosts occasional “Goddess Gatherings” in our Community Studio.
She brings a grounded presence, healing touch and compassionate heart to her work, and enjoys helping others to step out of “ordinary life” in order to connect deeply within.
