About Us

Javanne Golob LCSW, RYT and Brook Cheatham RYT


We can't wait to spend this magical week with you!



Javanne is a psychotherapist, self-compassion teacher, and yoga instructor based in Venice, CA. As much of her family was lost in the Holocaust, she was exposed to the impact of trauma from an early age. Knowing her family’s experience, suffering, and healing impacted her greatly throughout her development. From a young age she felt called to a path of social justice and helping others restore after painful events. She found her way to psychotherapy and yoga through a yearning for intimacy and deep connection. Being a yoga instructor and psychotherapist is a deeply fulfilling role that allows her to journey with others down their path to wholeness. Her goal as a healer is always to help her students and clients to be able to harness their own power and find what they need within to manifest they life they desire.

Brook's love for movement as a way to connect and heal began at the age of 4 as she used ballet to help her deal with the pain of childhood trauma.  As a young adult she found yoga and fitness helped her deal with  the excess energy and shame she still held onto from a tumultuous youth and learned how to use the practice of yoga to heal as a vehicle to become the success she is today.

As a yoga teacher, personal trainer, nutrition coach, mother and entrepreneur, she brings a special set of skills to each class and session that she teaches.

With clients ranging from a 73 year old hip replacement recipient, to a 23 year old Dallas Cowboys rookie, she has to constantly continue her education and innovation to deliver to each unique client their special needs.

Her specialty is showing students their true potential lying dormant within them and bringing out the fire in each one of her students to lead healthier more holistic lives.

Thai Massage is based on the principle of Metta, a meditation on love and compassion for all beings. It is said that Thai Massage is the physical application of loving kindness. Lynn's style is a modern blend of traditional Thai massage with myofascial release, abdominal massage and energetic bodywork. Compression along energy lines, hand and foot reflexology, gentle stretching, rhythmic rocking and deep breath work are used to create a profoundly effective bodywork experience.
