A Message from
Our Founders

We believe in the power of pressing pause. That realization didn't come overnight. We met in college at the University of North Florida in 2004, while Dori was pursuing a degree in Public Relations and Christian a Masters in International Business. Upon graduation we moved west to Portland, OR and worked at wineries in the Willamette Valley, eventually landing in Costa Rica in 2008. After getting married and having our daughter we returned from living in Costa Rica in 2013. We opened Soluna in 2014 to bring back the Pura Vida lifestyle to the hustle and bustle of the States. A priority in one’s life should be to take care of themselves by carving out the time needed to recharge and revive. When we nurture ourselves we are able to give back where it is needed most. Our name denotes a mixture of sun (Sol) and moon (Luna). The energies of these elements can be found in the nourishing environment of our studio.

We relocated to 5 Points in 2019, due to its historic nature, walkability, and convenient/accessible location from the numerous other neighborhoods of Jacksonville. We like to think that we are building community and connection one class and spa service at a time. In this day and age where everyone is plugged into technology, when you step into Soluna you plug into connecting to yourself and those around you, as well.

Soluna is a small family run business with the most professional and supportive team of instructors and massage therapists in Jacksonville. We are grateful to be a part of an expanding wellness field that raises the Frequency of Love.

Many Blessings, Dori and Christian Thomsen.
