Greta, Yoga Instructor
Greta started yoga when she was a freshman in college. Everyone gets in their funks, has their off days, and she found yoga could frequently shake her from those feelings. Through yoga, she has healed herself in ways she had not thought possible. It not only made her more intune with her body, and also increased her appreciation for herself. She has come to know that after every session, she always feels better than at the start of the session. Yoga has given her a beautiful connection of mind and body, strength, confidence and a sense of calm on and off the mat. She chose to teach yoga to pass along knowledge, as she wishes to show others all the benefits of the practice. She teaches for Full Circle Health and Wellness (vinyasa), Riverfit Yoga (vinyasa, restorative and hot yoga) and special events for the McHenry County Conservation District (vinyasa).
She has been lucky enough to grow up with a strong connection to nature. Greta graduated from Beloit College in 2018 with a major in Ecology, Evolution and Behavioral Biology and has a minor in Museum Studies. In her spare time she likes to practice yoga, cook, craft, care for her houseplants, tend to her vegetable garden and forage for mushrooms in the warmer months.

Melissa, CRMT, Access Bars, Artist
Melissa started her energetic journey back in 2015 after receiving a tarot card reading at the Bristol Renaissance Faire. The tarot reading gave her guidance to try Reiki, the Japanese art form of meditation, relaxation and energetic healing. Who knew that this reading would lead her on this path!?
This new and exciting endeavor has led her to explore energy healing, while expanding and learning from various modalities. She is a Certified Reiki Master Teacher, and she is certified in Access Bars and level 2 AumaKhua-Ki ® Energy Balancing & Meditation. She is working toward completing her level 3 and 4 certifications.
In addition, Melissa’s many talents include jewelry-design, painting, crochet and pottery. Come see some of her work on display at our studio.
As Melissa says: “An explorer of the arts, a creator of crafts and a dabbler in the divine, while my interests are vast, my motivation is simple... if it looks like fun and gives me joy, I try it! From crochet to painting or clay to jewelry making, I am willing to try my hand at anything. I grab inspiration from whatever is in front of me, and add some spark, pizazz or sometimes some glitter and create a new life form meant to bring joy to those who receive it!”

Rev. Dr. Lindsey H.
Lindsey is fascinated with symbolism and color and continues to explore both in her personal and professional life. In her work as a counselor and chaplain Lindsey uses her knowledge of symbols and colors to find understanding of life events and to help others create meaning and depth in their lives.
Lindsey finds that Tarot and/or Oracle cards help empower people to understand who they are and how they can use a reading to guide and change their lives. Lindsey believes we are co-creators with the universe and divination allow us to approach life with a positive energy and spirit. In each reading she does, Lindsey helps clients access their inner wisdom and gain greater understanding of their lives.
Lindsey offers a life assessment through a tool called the MARI®, which is an acronym for Mandala Assessment Research Instrument. https://www.maricreativeresources.com/what-is-mari/ The MARI® uses symbols, color and life stages, providing a wholistic picture of a person at the time they undertake the MARI®. If you need clear direction and a panoramic understanding of where you might be headed, consider scheduling a MARI®.
Lindsey also teaches and uses a method of creating meaning with found imagery called SoulCollage®. She finds that SoulCollage® inspires and assist others in finding themselves. The SoulCollage® method allows each person to create a snapshot of each individual life and to clarify or sometimes codify events or situations. The process of creating helps heal the spirit. As a practice, SoulCollage® encourages self-expression and self-examination. It is a wonderful way to begin to create one’s own unique and supportive self-care system that can be used for decorating altars, asking life questions and for divination.
As an intuitive empath Lindsey uses other forms of divination including charms. She has studied charm casting with Carrie Paris and Kristen Allison. Additionally, Lindsey is a certified yoga teacher and certified aromatherapist. She also offers Reiki, (She is a Reiki Master Teacher) for humans and animals.
