    A New Wellness Center in Provincetown

    The Yoga Joint
    June 6, 2023

    It happened coincidentally—or was, perhaps, Meant To Be! Both Jay Foley and Chase Hiffernan decided to open wellness-related services this year… and found themselves in the same building!

    Relaxing with BodyWorx

    Jay Foley was the main massage therapist at Namaste Spa from 2017 until it closed last year. Now he’s striking out on his own. “All the stars were aligned when I began seeking a place to create something new,” he says, “and this studio, tucked away on the bay, is incredibly quiet and serene.”

    He’s delighted about opening his own space, starting this new chapter in his life. “I’ve had people calling for months wanting appointments so I am very excited that soon they can finally get their table-time in, and we can fill this space with great energy, healing, growth and life!”

    Foley’s new massage studio is called 333 Bodyworx, and is located in the Boatworks condo on Commercial Street right behind the Squealing Pig.

    Bringing Body and Spirit together: The Yoga Joint and Coyote Kayaks

    Now starting his fifth season in Provincetown, Chase Hiffernan grew up in Iowa, and “like any queer kid, I wanted to get away,” he says. Getting away included changing from his traditional Midwest diet, and beginning to do yoga in college taught him about taking care of his body. “It’s a holistic practice that always allows you to deepen, find more ways to explore, whether it’s your body or spirit,” he says.

    The Yoga Joint offers not only yoga classes, but also paddleboard yoga (in season, and depending on tide and weather) through its connection with Coyote Kayaks (previously Aquasports).

    “My goal is to create a down-to-earth inclusive space for all sorts of people,” he says. “We have this beautiful space overlooking the water for what I like to call ‘unfussy’ yoga.”

    Provincetown hasn’t had year-round wellness spaces for some time; Foley and Hiffernan are pleased to be offering a welcoming, comfortable place that will be available to all, summer visitors and year-round residents alike.
