The Participants:

Elina Finn: Originally, I am from Ukraine, but have been in North America for 30 years. I have received B.Comm degree from UofA and worked and lived in the U.S., Vancouver and the Caribbean. My passion for helping/healing people is behind everything I do in my life.

I am a single mother with 2 awesome teenage boys. I have been doing Massage therapy, Reiki and many other healing modalities for over 13 years; last year I received my 200 hrs Yoga teacher training in South Caribbean Costa Rica that I love so much.

I am passionate about Wholistic healing, helping people to become the best version of themselves, I love to spread the Light and Positivity wherever I go. My vision now, that actually emerged and evolved over the years, is eventually to move to Costa Rica, do Yoga and Travel retreats, educate people and keep learning about healthy nutrition, Yoga philosophies etc. and be among like-minded people . I hope to learn effective marketing strategies to help me build and promote my business in order to help people and raise consciousness in the world. Thank you so much! Blessings and Love

Claudia Parkinson: I grew up in Germany, where I was trained as a nurse and then explored different forms of complementary and alternative medicine.
A few years after graduating as a Holistic Health Practitioner in Germany I moved to Canada in 2002. I have worked as a nanny, caregiver, educational assistant, RN and now RMT in Edmonton.
I clearly have a love for the human body and the healing arts, I am fascinated about how awareness works, how ancestral believes are embedded in our bodies and surface in illness as well as how the body works on the anatomical and physiological level. I have learned a lot by healing my own body and love to pass on my knowledge to others.
My biggest passion is craniosacral therapy, because it’s the most magical work I have encountered, but I am also interested in lymphatic drainage and visceral manipulation.
Other than that I love spending time with my husband, meeting friends, YouTube and gardening.
