NAMACB Certified Ayurvedic Practitioner

E-RYT 500 Yoga Instructor

My yoga journey began unexpectedly in 2002 when a friend persuaded me to attend my first class at a gym. Little did I know then that it would be a life-changing event.

My first exposure was to the Sivananda lineage at the Yoga and Inner Peace studio in Lake Worth, Florida. Feeling an immediate connection, I decided to dive deeper by taking the teacher training program to learn more—famous last words for many yoga teachers!

I completed my 200-hour YTT in 2005, and as a new teacher it was required that I teach a class.  I haven’t stopped teaching since that day!  Since then, I have completed over 1000 hours of additional training, including Vinyasa, Chair Yoga, Trauma-Informed Yoga, and many specialized workshops.

In 2021, I became an Ayurvedic Practitioner and opened Sunveda Wellness. I integrate yoga, pranayama, and related sister sciences into my client work.

A student of Sanskrit and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), I study several hours a week live with my teacher.  When I’m not head-down in the books, I am in the woods with my dog, Quincy, or in the kitchen concocting recipes.  

 

My partner Stephanie and I shared a dream of creating a wellness space together. With Celestial Wellness, we are now living that dream!​

Teaching yoga is an immense privilege, and I feel blessed to share what I love. My aim is to make this ancient practice universally accessible, as I believe no one cannot practice yoga.

Stephanie Gieruc

Co-Owner, Celestial Wellness

Licensed Massage Therapist & Esthetician 

Certified Yoga Instructor & Ayurvedic Health Counselor 

My journey as a holistic wellness practitioner spans over two decades. Certified as a yoga instructor since 2006 and a licensed massage therapist since 2009, I first discovered yoga in 1995.

My initial yoga certification blended the Kundalini and Ashtanga traditions, but my practice has evolved to encompass teachings from all the styles I've studied over the years. Working at local studios and spas and with a physical therapist allowed me to hone my skills in one-on-one sessions.

I began specializing in private yoga, primarily for clients living with chronic illness, injury, stress, and anxiety. Integrating my knowledge of massage therapy and Ayurveda, these personalized sessions transformed into holistic yoga therapy sessions honoring the mind-body-spirit connection - my greatest passion today.

In 2013, I opened Just Breathe Wellness, a hub for holistic practitioners to offer their services to the community. When a larger adjacent space became available in 2022, I seized the opportunity and partnered with Meri Consor of Sunveda Wellness to co-found Celestial Wellness.

 

As a lifelong learner, I've completed certifications in Traditional Thai Massage, Swe-Thai, Nutrition, Energy Kinesiology, Reflexology, Reiki Level 1, Ayurvedic Treatments, Marma Therapy, and as an Ayurvedic Health Counselor. Most recently, I became a licensed esthetician to expand into holistic skincare.

 

I proudly reside in Juno Beach with my husband, son, dog Zak, and cat Elvis. When not working, I love traveling, being in nature, and continuing my education to serve others better. Just Breathe Wellness still operates within Celestial Wellness, where you can learn more about my offerings.

Tracey O’Hara
(Uttampreet Kaur)

Kundalini Yoga Instructor

My journey has been one of profound healing and transformation. I have recovered from the gripping chains of alcohol addiction, an eating disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder by dedicating myself to the ancient technology of Kundalini Yoga and the RESET-IT Method. As I reshaped my life through these practices, I became acutely aware of my life's purpose - to guide others who have not yet found their path to a better life.

With reverence, I now utilize the very techniques that facilitated my recovery to help countless others liberate themselves from emotional and physical stresses, as well as addictions. Kundalini Yoga, mantra, meditation, breathwork, and the continuous practice of RESET-IT are the powerful modalities I employ. Over the past decade, I have taught thousands of classes and private sessions in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and now in West Palm Beach, Florida, under the name Loving Life Yoga® - a nod to yoga's incredible ability to help us reclaim joy amidst life's inevitable difficulties that often breed sadness, depression, and anxiety.

My formal Kundalini training began in the sacred lands of Rishikesh, India, and I am constantly seeking new wisdom from masters around the globe. I am certified in Hatha Yoga, Strategic Intervention Life Coaching, and Yoga for Addictions as a RESET-IT facilitator. My practice blends this yogic expertise with life coaching insights from my personal journey and the experiences of others. Additionally, I have transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle and love sharing nourishing recipes.

I tailor my classes to meet students where they are, respecting age limitations, physical abilities, and medical conditions. I have guided children, teenagers, and adults well into their 80s, sometimes in the same session! Whether you can flow on a mat or require the support of a chair, I will uplift your spirit, elevate your mood, vitalize your health, and reignite your passion for life.

I am passionate about living with authenticity, gratitude, and joy. However, I understand that fully embracing life often requires walking the courageous path of facing and transcending our "tough stuff." I have been to the depths where life felt unworthy of living. Through divine grace, I discovered the yogic path that shifted me into a life of abundance, creativity, prosperity, and unshakable happiness. I am grateful to have the opportunity to pass on these teachings that transformed my existence. 

In addition to facilitating healing, I am passionate about creating delectable plant-based foods like chocolates and cakes, crafting natural soaps and skincare products, and designing clothing. But most of all, I am driven by the desire to empower others to heal themselves so they, too, can experience lives brimming with radiant health and happiness.

Christine Manko Petersen

Yoga Instructor

With over 15 years of devoted practice, yoga has become my lifelong passion. What began as a simple gym routine has evolved into a profound journey of self-discovery, echoing the Bhagavad Gita: "Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self."

 

In 2018, I felt a deep calling to dive deeper and enrolled in my 200h Yoga Teacher Training driven by a desire to share its transformative power.

 

Having spent years in the corporate world, I personally witnessed the immense benefits of my own yoga practice. It not only alleviated my back pain and helped me manage stressful times but also served as a guiding force on my personal healing journey. Feeling compelled to complement my knowledge and support my clients' growth, I pursued certification as a Life Coach. Integrating yoga and mindfulness, I assist others in managing stress and building resilience, ultimately fostering greater balance, tranquility, and contentment in their lives.

 

My teaching style based on classic Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga, is centered on mindfulness and inner connection, guiding students to access their body's innate wisdom. Through the practice of slow and mindful movements, breath work, and meditation, we quiet the mind and reconnect with our authentic selves.

 

Originally from Germany, I have called Florida home since 2021, where I reside with my husband. I enjoy the ocean, the beach, and nature walks. I also love to travel, exploring different cuisines, and spending quality time with my loved ones.

Barbara Goad

Massage Therapist/Reiki Master

For the past decade, I have dedicated my career to the art of therapeutic massage. My specialties encompass Swedish, deep tissue, and reflexology techniques, each administered slowly and intentionally. Every treatment is carefully designed to help you unwind, release pent-up tension, and achieve a state of profound relaxation.

In addition to hands-on bodywork, I am a Reiki Master offering energy healing sessions. My greatest passion lies in empowering others to feel their absolute best and reach their wellness goals through holistic practices.

Away from my practice, I enjoy quality time with family, friends, and my beloved dog Daisy. I am an avid practitioner of TaiChi Chuan and Qigong, using these ancient arts to cultivate mind-body harmony further. On a lighter note, I also enjoy strumming away on the ukulele.

Whether you seek physical, mental, or energetic balance, I am committed to facilitating your journey toward optimal well-being through my skilled and compassionate approach to the healing arts.

Lisa Drew

Yoga Instructor

For me, teaching yoga means holding a safe, connected, beautiful space to practice. Because I started teaching yoga in my 50s, I am very mindful of the body and the changes that occur as we age. I try to ensure that my classes provide a healing space that allows my students to gain and maintain flexibility, strength, and balance.

Yoga has been incredibly healing for my heart, mind and body and it brings me so much joy and gratitude to share my practice with others.

All levels are welcome to a fun gentle flow on Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings.

Rachel O'Neill

Yoga Instructor

My love affair with yoga began over three decades ago, and this profound connection ultimately inspired me to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2023. As an experienced massage therapist specializing in myofascial release, I have witnessed firsthand the incredible healing powers that a consistent yoga practice can provide beyond the treatment room.

In my bodywork practice, I take a holistic, whole-body approach to uncover the root causes of pain and dysfunction. Yoga perfectly complements myofascial release by empowering individuals to create balance from within. The union of breath and movement builds strength and flexibility and quiets the busy mind, cultivating a sense of spaciousness.

My classes seamlessly bridge the principles of yoga and myofascial release to release stuck patterns in the fascia. Carefully sequenced poses become tools to ease common ailments and facilitate healing on multidimensional levels - tending to the physical, mental, and energetic bodies. We can soften restrictive tissues and create greater ease by accessing that sacred mind-body connection.

I genuinely believe that with conscious breathing and embodied movement, yoga holds profound potential to unwind deeply held tensions, restore optimal functioning, and ultimately pave the way toward wholeness and vitality. I am honored to guide others on this transformative journey of self-healing.

Carl Stearns

Massage Therapist

Bidding farewell to my engineering career marked the beginning of an entirely new life path. I went back to school for massage therapy in Worcester, Massachusetts, a pivotal decision that would shape the next two decades.

During this time, I became deeply involved with the American Massage Therapy Association, holding every leadership position over my 20-year membership. One of my greatest privileges was running and chairing the New England Regional Conference for Massage Therapy (NERC) for 15 years. My role with NERC allowed me to connect with and learn from many giants in the field.

For a few seasons, I had the enriching experience of learning and teaching meditation in Tulum, Mexico. Traveling through the ancient Mayan archaeological sites provided deeper insights that informed my practices.

Locally, I have volunteered at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida, for the past 14 years. I spend a couple of days each week contributing to various departments and jobs, allowing me to be actively involved with this meaningful organization.

My journey took an unanticipated turn away from engineering but opened me up to a richly fulfilling new path filled with community, teaching, preservation, and the healing arts. It has been a transformative life experience.

Rainbow Breath Coach

Aloha!

For the past 24 years, I have been a Breath Coach, learning this profound practice through my own healing journey. While living on the Big Island of Hawaii, I faced a life-altering event that set me on a mission to find a way to heal. This time of healing allowed me to delve into many different alternative modalities, nurturing my body, mind, and spirit. Since 1997, I have facilitated hundreds of private sessions and intimate group experiences throughout my travels, helping others transform their lives, release trauma, toxic relationships, grief, and more.

Through my learnings, I created Rainbow Breathing, a powerful experience blending conscious, connected breath, guided imagery, colors, and music. In a two-hour private session with me, you'll experience the profound healing capabilities of your own breath.

My greatest pride and joy are my two grown sons. I'm an avid animal lover, sharing my life with beloved cats and dogs over the years. Some of my favorite pastimes include immersing myself in nature, swimming in the ocean, taking long walks, crocheting, playing the ukulele, singing, and sewing.

Breathwork is my passion. Come experience the healing power of your own breath!

Julie Allen

Massage Therapist

As a native Floridian, I deeply love nature's tranquility and a passion for serving the community. I've found my true calling as an artist, yoga teacher, and massage therapist.

Artistic expression has been a part of me since childhood. Encouraged by my incredibly talented mother, I was always drawing, painting, and creating. The arts have provided a cathartic outlet that remains therapeutic and necessary. I pour my heart into crafting beautiful, functional gifts, often incorporating upcycled materials. Recently, my creations have included watercolor mandala paintings, warming neck wraps, eye pillows, cat toys, and dioramas.

My yoga journey began in the 1990s after discovering it through a magazine article. I diligently maintained a home practice until I established a studio practice in 2010. In 2013, I completed a 200-hour yoga teacher training. After graduating, I immersed myself in teaching Yoga on Water at Blueline Surf and Paddle, leading a weekly class there for eight years. My classes cultivate a nurturing sacred space with fluid, breath-synchronized calisthenic movements culminating in a deep, supportive savasana.

In 2007, I attended the Academy of Palm Beach, completing a 610-hour massage therapy program. A 1020-hour training at the Center for Natural Wellness School of Massage Therapy in Albany, NY, followed this. After struggling to establish a business upstate, I returned to Florida in 2010. I began working as a massage therapist at Jupiter Beach Resort the following year. In 2013, concurrent with my yoga teacher training, I started building my independent massage practice, which has flourished. My specialties include sports massage, treating repetitive motion injuries, foot massage, shiatsu/Thai massage, deep tissue, and helping clients find comfort and ease in the body.

My purpose is to bring the healing energies of the elements to friends, clients, and the community through hands-on healing treatments, nurturing gentle yoga classes, and lovingly handcrafted items.
