During the pandemic, the importance of self-care in mind, body, and soul became apparent for many of us. While looking good can make you feel good, when we are balanced both inside and out, that is when we are truly healthy. The owners of Katherine Jon Salon initially began the ARKK academy as an education and personal development arm of their business for beauty industry professionals and business owners.


In July, The ARKK Wellness Center and Academy had their grand opening to the public, offering an array of classes from yoga and reiki to personal and spiritual development. They also offer therapeutic services like dance and movement therapy and aromatherapy and crystal healing classes.


The grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting included visits from local officials, live music from 1 Step Ahead Band, healthy food tastings, and tropical beverages.


“Kat Riley’s history of long-standing success in business continues to flourish with the grand opening of The ARKK Academy, said Brookhaven Town Clerk Donna Lent, who attended that grand opening. “This wellness center, born out of the pandemic and driven by a desire to bring forth healing through education and self-care, is a testament of Kat’s commitment to the community.”
