• Meal Planning using Food as Healing Energy

Elaina trained with Thelma Gress (certified nurse practitioner, teacher of kundalini yoga, and student of Yogi Bhajan) from 2005-2009, Dr Jaya Satish, specialist in mudra meditation, and Jannon Baer (specialist in mudra yoga, meditation, and student of Thich Nhat Hanh) to gain specialized knowledge and skill in the theory, practice, and pedagogical aspects of meditation. She also studied with Kate Miller and Moses Brown, both of whom are certified teachers of anusara yoga. Elaina furthered her training with Rod Stryker who is a specialist in pranayama and meditation.

Elaina has experienced the benefits of transformation and meditation in her personal journey of healing, including having completely cured endometriosis and pain related to scoliosis. Her personal experience of dealing with these issues informs her with empathy to connect with her clients and patients.

At CCIM Elaina is creating opportunities for others to join her in celebrating life and to finally recognize that their fullest potential is infinite. She says, “When we realize that our light burns to the fullest infinite possibility is when we begin to expand and heal from the inside out. This is what the world needs to heal; it starts within the self, in which each person recognizes goodness and kindness radiating from his/her own heart. Self-Love creates a spillover effect, and as a consequence, the world benefits. When we smile from our authentic hearts, we heal together as a group.”
