She, likewise, teaches Mindfulness and Meditation, teaching a special course called Mindfulness for Cancer Survivors. Cassandra maintains a focus on making yoga accessible for Every Body. Remembering that yoga is NOT only about asanas – how we move our bodies, as is so often taught in the west – but she also focuses on the elements of yoga and mindfulness as a means to help heal one’s mind, body, soul, and spirit. Therefore, regardless of a person’s experiences as being different from others, Cassandra teaches that there is a practice that is just right for you.

Having been healed of two, life-threatening conditions, as verified by doctor’s reports, from rheumatoid arthritis and blood clots through yoga, reiki, and other healing modalities, Cassandra is a strong advocate of promoting alternative, complementary, and integrative solutions and mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) to all who are interested in experiencing these non- evasive modalities.

Cassandra helps us to change our minds by accepting that we are all beautiful, enlightened beings, remembering who we are, and learning to love and heal ourselves, our families, our communities, our city, our planet, and beyond through the Light of Loving Kindness. If you are a seeker, then we are here to help you on your journey. In addition to studying and teaching yoga, Cassandra is a deeply spiritual and intuitive being, having been gifted with spiritual gifts from early childhood.

DrLarryTurner

Larry

Clinical psychologist, emergency room psychiatric nurse, substance abuse therapist, Vietnam veteran, yoga teacher

Dr. Larry Turner is a clinical psychologist, emergency room psychiatric nurse, substance abuse therapist, Vietnam veteran, yoga teacher, yoga therapist, father of four children, and grandfather of one.

For 20 years, Larry worked as a psychiatric nurse with traumatized children Chicago hospitals, using cognitive-behavioral therapy as well as yoga techniques. Larry knows from experience about the healing power of yoga, and one of his goals is to get more people to try yoga therapy. “Definitely go to your doctor,” he says, “but try yoga first.”

Before he practiced yoga, Larry had been a marathon runner for 15 years and an avid basketball player. When he injured his IT band in 1997, he was forced to quit both sports. One day at the South Side YMCA, Larry walked past a room where yoga teacher, Rosalia Holt, was getting ready to begin a class. She invited him in, and he decided to try it. Since stretching was part of his routine, Larry assumed yoga would be easy. “I was into that John Wayne testosterone mentality,” he says, “forcing my body to perform.” But when Rosalia led the class in a seated spinal twist, Larry realized there was more to yoga than loose hamstrings.Larry started going to all of Rosalia’s classes, and soon his IT band injury healed.

Over the years Larry has used his psychology degree and yoga skills to assist in major disaster areas: New Orleans in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina, Haiti after the major earthquake in 2010, and Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis in 2014. In addition, Larry volunteers in after-school programs for inner-city schools. He teaches children and teachers yoga, breathing techniques, and skills designed to foster good decision-making.

AngieBober

Angie

Reiki practitioner,
facilitates past life meditations,
cleansing of Akashic Records,
and intuitive readings

In 2012, Angie's life was changed forever when she was introduced to Reiki.


She had finally found a place where she “fit” in, a place of community where she began to uncover and embrace the beautiful gifts she had been blessed with. She was able achieve much healing through the use of Reiki and Past Life Regressions and was able to release many hurts and major roadblocks through these two modalities. In October 2013, she had the amazing experience of attending Dr. Brian Weiss’s week long training, learning to lead individuals and groups through past life meditations.

Angie completed Doreen Virtue’s online class and became a Certified Angel Card Reader. The cards have given her another form of communication with spirit, and she has incorporated them in her intuitive readings, still finding it amazing how the right cards turn up at exactly the right time or the same card continually shows up.

In August 2016, she completed Reiki training and obtained my Reiki Master Teacher certificate and in May 2017, she completed level 1 Soul Realignment certification. Soul Realignment is a nontraditional Akashic Record course. Over the years, she has had the privilege in assisting clients in their healing through one or multiple of these modalities. She views it as an honor to serve each unique client in their healing process, witnessing their progressions, watching them release hurts and blocks, and embracing their light.

Monica

Shiatsu & Massage Therapist; working on a holistic level, this physical therapy addresses emotional,
physical, and spiritual aspects of health.

Monica has been practicing a form of physical therapy called Shiatsu for more than three years now.

Shiatsu originates from Japan and supports the body's natural ability to self-heal. Working on a holistic level, this physical therapy addresses emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of health.

The word "shiatsu" means "finger pressure" in Japanese. The practice uses comfortable pressure, touch, and manipulative techniques. This balances energy flow and adjusts elements of the body's physical structure, much like acupuncture. Through the use of meridians and meridian points, Shiatsu can restore harmony to the body. It is performed fully clothed, on a floor mat or table, and can be included in other forms of wellness. A deeply relaxing therapy, Shiatsu can be used to reduce stress and promote overall health and well-being.
