Dr. Bobby Curtis
My name is Bobby Curtis, D.C., - and I’m a chiropractor and weight loss specialist practicing at The Wellness Studio in Roswell, Georgia. My approach to wellness is simple: I’m here to help you live your life to the fullest by providing comprehensive chiropractic care and weight loss solutions. I specialize in Neck Pain, Lower Back Pain, Migraines, Vertigo, Plantar Fasciitis, Sciatica, Weight loss and nutrition, including the UltraSlim system.
- My Story:
- I became a chiropractor after an auto accident left me with crushing headaches and neck pain. It was so bad that prescription pain and muscle-relaxing medications were ineffective. On a referral from a friend, I decided to go to a chiropractor. I was amazed When the doctor explained to me that the accident caused a misalignment to my spine, and how chiropractic care could correct the problem. Within f few days of treatment, the blinding headaches were gone. Not only that but after a few weeks the asthma that I had suffered from since childhood had almost disappeared. When I later asked the doctor how this could be possible, he explained to me that the nervous system controls every part of the body. He once again showed me the misalignment in my spine and pointed out the nerves going to the lungs. I suddenly realized that the body can heal itself when there is no interference to the nervous system.
This treatment not only changed my health, it inspired me to help others.
- My Experience and My Vision for the Future:
- After my life-changing experience. I went on to receive my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in September of 2001 from Life University in Marietta, Georgia. As I was practicing in Austin, TX I met my wife, Katie. Our adventures as a couple led us back to Atlanta, GA where we decided to settle and expand my practice into The Wellness Studio, a chiropractic practice that also focuses on the other aspects of health and wellness.

Jessi Rae began her journey into yoga as an early teenager practicing with her mother. She didn’t know why at the time but it was something that just clicked, like a light twitch had just been turned on. She fell in love with the exploration and the connection of the mind and body through movement and breath. In 2008 she traveled to Costa Rica to train and receive her 200- Hour Interdisciplinary Yoga teacher training at Nosara Yoga Institute. She immediately fell in love with the act of teaching and sharing yoga with others. She first began teaching at a physical therapy center in Arlington Heights IL, working with clients to build, strengthen, and enhance the flexibility in the their bodies. Teaching at a medical type facility challenged her as an instructor and gave her a better understanding of the healing elements of yoga. She has since continued to teach locally and internationally at various different studios.

Jenny took her first yoga class almost 20 years ago, but it wasn’t until she stumbled upon an instructor that gave the class permission to “do you” that kept her coming back for more.
Yoga quickly became a form of “medicine” for her that brought the balance she had been seeking. Now, as an instructor, she wants to give back to help others experience the positive effects of yoga, both on and off the mat. She truly feels the unique journey of each student is what makes the practice so beautiful.
Jenny has always been very spiritual and is a true lover of nature and the outdoors. She finds great pleasure in incorporating her faith and spirituality into her own personal practice and invites others to explore the peace that can be obtained through the connection with the Divine.
Jenny is a true “people lover” and enjoys getting to know others from all walks of life. She believes it is through learning about others, that her life is immensely enriched.

Kevin holds a Yoga Alliance 500hr RYT certification from Peachtree Yoga along with Aerial Yoga certification in 2016. His yoga practice started while searching ways to stay healthy and fit later in life. He started teacher training to gain a deeper understanding of yoga and how to apply it to life goals. He did not intend to start teaching right away. During his 300hr training he focused on spine and lower back problems that develop as we age or from injuries. This focus led him to understand how we can use yoga to help prevent further injuries and build strength, core strength. Having some experience with Pilates also helps with understanding how to improve core muscles to help support the spine and back.
Teaching has become a way to impart knowledge by connecting movement with breath. His yoga classes will be slower paced while holding the poses a little longer than other classes.
As a lifetime dancer and yogi, Jessi happened to stumble across aerial yoga and immediately thought “I have to do that”. She was intrigued and mesmerized by its beauty and grace. It wasn't until after she began practicing and then teaching it, did she realize all of the amazing, beneficial healing aspects of this beautiful art form.
Jessi's aerial yoga practice significantly improved her strength, stability, and flexibility; As a result, she noticed a huge difference in her regular yoga practice. Jessi soon began to notice that certain postures that were once very challenging for her were getting easier as she progressed. She saw herself achieving goals that she struggled with all these years in her regular yoga practice. And now as an instructor Jessi see's the same goals being achieved by her students. Teaching Aerial Yoga and seeing the growth and progression in her students as well as herself has been a life changing experience. Jessi couldn't be happier to share this gift of Aerial Yoga with all of those that have a desire to learn and grow her me.

This is Seth Colburn, one out of Micheleʼs five children. He began his Yoga journey at thirteen, one year after being diagnosed with a G.I disorder. At the age of fourteen, Seth pressed forward in his yoga and meditation practice with the goal of being certified to teach others meditation. After achieving his goal to be certified in meditation, Seth proceeded to teach children with the same G.I disorder so they can learn what the true benefits of meditation are. When he finally made the decision that meditation was not the only way he could help people, Seth started on his path to becoming a yoga teacher. At the age of sixteen, Seth became fully certified to teach yoga publicly and teamed up with his mother Michele to be apart of what is now A Mindful Movement.
