All About Mocha Wellness Center
A Home Away From Home
Mocha Wellness Center helps people in marginalized communities by offering itself as a safe place & wellness resource. It is intended to be a home away from home, where one could retreat to. Where ever you are on your wellness journey, you are welcome here! Currently offered is:
1 on 1 Yoga sessions
Private Group events
Freshly made Wildcrafted Sea Moss
Homemade Elderberry Syrup
And so much more things to come!
While the whole Center itself may not exist just yet, the vision is always laser focused on expansion! The growth and progress has been so real in just 2 short years! The hope is to one day open up said Wellness Center in the South Shore Massachusetts area (preferably Brockton) with the focus being on offerings for the BIPOC community. The vision is a Center where you can attend a Yoga class, or sign up to listen to a special guest speaker, find a quiet space to meditate, grab a cup of coffee while enjoying a healthy snack, or just bask in the ambiance of the incense burning and R&B/Jazz/Reggae music subtly playing in the air.
Now more than ever, self-care and self-love are of the upmost importance in today’s society. We are recognizing that as a society we cannot keep putting ourselves last because that only leads to burnout, depression, anxiety, and just an overall lack of satisfaction in life all because we aren’t making enough time to take care of ourselves internally as well as externally.
It’s important and necessary to find outlets where you can go to work on your self care. It’s also important that you feel welcomed and safe in that space so that you can even begin to open up and start the restorative process. Mocha Wellness Center aims to be that safe space to foster, create, and cultivate one’s personal wellness journey.
There is a need in the Wellness community for more diverse representation. Yoga/Massage in itself are great and there’s plenty of research to showcase all of their benefits, but without diverse instructors or practitioners leading those practices, many POC are being missed and left behind in that plight.
Be it male or female, cis or trans, young or elderly, experienced or brand new etc. this space is for you! Her dream is a dream shared, one that Sharlene feels was placed on her right from her Ancestors and that many others have too. It only takes one person to stand up and make a difference…..
“Be the change you wish to see in the world”- Ghandi.
Sharlene is a young, eclectic, soulful, creative woman of color whom is passionate about holistic health and wellness for marginalized communities.
She was raised by a Father from Haiti, and a mother, whom has since passed away, from Panama with ancestral ties from Barbados. Further research has shown that her roots can even be traced back as far as Central African Republic.
Culture by far, is a major contributor to her identity. Spirituality also plays a huge role after growing up in a very non-traditional religious setting. Being raised by West Indian Parents, she was instilled with the importance of natural foods, and natural medicines as a way of life. All of those factors came together to create Mocha Wellness Center. She welcomes all perspectives, backgrounds, and people from all walks of life.
She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology with a minor in Social Work, and first started practicing Yoga back in 2014. Yoga seemed to manifest in her life at divine timing. It was a time of spiritual growth, healing, and self-discovery. Along her journey she became interested in Massage Therapy as the two modalities often overlapped and complement each other, at first just going for Massages for herself and her own self care, then she became invested in learning it, in order to come back and share this healing modality with her community.
She received her 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training from Open Doors Yoga Studios completing it January 2020. (1 year long program, Yoga Alliance Registered). Then during the heart of the Covid Pandemic, she enrolled into a 1 year long 650 hours Therapeutic Massage Therapy Program at Spa Tech in Plymouth (Graduated April 2021).
Aside from being CEO/Founder of her own business at Mocha Wellness Center, Sharlene is also a “Yoga Sculpt” Instructor at Crunch Fitness Gym in Brockton, and also works as a Massage Therapist at the #1 Spa in New England: Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Plymouth. If that wasn’t enough hats to wear, the most interesting fact about Sharlene is that she works full time in the high stress environment of Corrections. Given all her experience, she truly has a unique perspective on how stress can take a toll on the body, mind, and soul of a person, and how important it is to include self care into your normal everyday routine.
In her spare time, Sharlene enjoys writing, reading, riding motorcycles, singing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
