CHRISTINA "TINA" ADAIR

RYT-200

Christina, RYT-200 from Yoga Garden San Francisco, is passionate about wellness and health. Although not a huge fan of exercise, she finds that yoga gives her the workout she needs while providing calmness, focus, and that elusive muscle tone missing from being a couch potato.

In the past, Ms. Adair has struggled with weight, body image, self-esteem, insecurities; you name it, she felt it. Yoga has opened up a world of OK-ness to Christina that was never there before.

Being able to perform a decent Caturanga Dandasana is very liberating for someone with no upper body strength to speak of (until yoga that is). She also found that meditation is essential to being okay with yourself.

She specializes in helping beginners learn yoga basics and how to care for themselves during the “introduction to exercise” phase. You can find more information about Christina at www.cgyoga.com

Christina holds a BS in Applied Physics Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration. She also holds a Master of Astronomy and Reiki Energy Healing certifications. She loves to learn and it is reflected in her continuing education courses in Meditation, Evolution Yoga Instructor training and Emotional Intelligence courses and many more.

DR. SONIA MCGOWIN

DC, DAN! Doctor

Dr. Sonia McGowin, DC is a Chiropractor and DAN! doctor, practicing in Jefferson City, Missouri. The focus of her practice is children with disabilities ranging from learning disabilities to autism. She uses a biomedical and nutritional approach to treating their specific issues. Dr. McGowin is a graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City and lives in Jefferson City with her husband, two children, and their English Bulldog, Lola.

Before becoming a Chiropractor, she was the Deputy Director of Outreach Services for the Judevine Center for Autism (now called Easter Seals Midwest), working with families with autism across 92 counties of Missouri for 14 years. It was after attending a DAN! conference in 2001 when she realized that autism is medical, and decided to become a DAN! doctor.

Dr. Sonia has spent her career working with children and adults with autism, but she’s also a parent of a child with unique needs. As a toddler, her son displayed many troubling issues, such as a severe speech delay, self-injurious and aggressive behaviors; traditional medicine offered no hope or help for her family. After undertaking biomedical intervention, he is now highly verbal and very talented, yet still dealing with food allergies and learning disabilities. After the experience with her son, she vowed that no family should feel alone in their quest to recover their child.

These experiences, along with her training as a DAN! doctor, give Dr McGowin a unique skillset to offer interventions working toward the treatment of children with disabilities on any range of the spectrum. She uses a variety of approaches including lab testing, chiropractic, supplements, food allergy and sensitivity testing, essential oils, as well as the IonCleanse by AMD. She is sought after among many groups on social media, and has worked with patients from more than half a dozen states, other countries and from all parts of her home state of Missouri.

Dr. Sonia McGowin offers her professional opinion in overview format to multiple audiences. She is a contributing writer for the Missouri Autism Report magazine. She was a presenter at the AutismOne 2016 Conference sharing “Detoxifying Across Barriers: Harnessing the Power of Ions”. She relishes opportunities to share her expertise in the use of nutrition, essential oils, detoxification and other remedies addressing interventions for individuals with Autism and other neuro-developmental challenges.

CHERYL BROWN

CNHP, CAHP intern, Flower Remedy Specialist , Evox expert

Cheryl’s love for things that grow started in New York at age seven when she planted her first garden. It is no surprise that her devotion to tinctures and flower essences as healing modalities has blossomed since then.

The lesson of the garden, from planning spaces and love of color, grew into an Interior Design career.

Cheryl noticed that her clients were deeply affected by the color and Feng Shui balancing she incorporated into their spaces. She wanted to reach further to bring balance to more individuals, but this time on a deeper physical level. After furthering her studies and training, Cheryl has brought her intuitive nature and desire to balance health into her wellness practice, Mind Matters Studio.

CHERYL BROWN

CNHP, CAHP intern, Flower Remedy Specialist , Evox expert

Cheryl’s love for things that grow started in New York at age seven when she planted her first garden. It is no surprise that her devotion to tinctures and flower essences as healing modalities has blossomed since then.

The lesson of the garden, from planning spaces and love of color, grew into an Interior Design career.

Cheryl noticed that her clients were deeply affected by the color and Feng Shui balancing she incorporated into their spaces. She wanted to reach further to bring balance to more individuals, but this time on a deeper physical level. After furthering her studies and training, Cheryl has brought her intuitive nature and desire to balance health into her wellness practice, Mind Matters Studio.

MAURA MARKSTEINER

Essential Oil Educator

I have been helping people all my life…

…many of them couldn’t communicate through speech. Since I was a curious person, I learned to listen in new ways. Over the years, the new ways of listening deepened my intuition and my compassion. I could see and understand things that others couldn’t.

Then my health started needing more consideration.

The things I had been doing in the past weren’t working. Conventional methods did not have answers, diagnosis, or effective advice for me. I started searching outside the box. I unearthed many, many strategies-some that worked for me and some that didn’t. By the time I found essential oils I knew there were many others searching just like me.

I began sharing my experiences with others.

My gifts of listening and genuine interest in people helped me develop into an engaged and caring mentor. When I work with someone learning to use or share oils, I get to share my power and boldness and encourage them to embrace their own strengths while developing new ones.

I’m so excited to share with and encourage you as well.

Barb has always been passionate about education.  She holds an associate degree in dental hygiene, a bachelor’s degree in dental health education and masters in educational leadership.  She has completed her CNHP and a Naturopathic Doctor program of study.  Barb continues to learn and grow attending CE, seminars, and symposiums across the country.

Barb has a practice in Nashville, TN called “More to Life Wellness” where she focuses on meeting people where they are and helping them to go where they want to go with regards to life and health.  She utilizes bioenergetic healing practices along with other natural modalities she has learned.

Barb has a life and business coaching company as well.  “More to Life Coaching” is focused on helping small businesses manage their time and money, get organized, and learn how to connect with their clients and increase cash flow.  She has coached dentists and dental teams for the more than 12 years of her career.  She has expanded this to medical, natural and alternative practitioners.  Her proven methods and business principles have helped many get control of their life and business.

Barb and her husband have a garden and enjoy growing their own food.  Barb preserves this home-grown food for their winter pantry.  They both spend many hours volunteering in their community and doing mission work in the States and abroad.  She loves her two rescue dogs, loves spending time with her children and grandchildren, loves to travel, and enjoys hiking or reading a good book.

Barb makes joy wherever she goes with a smile on her face and a bounce in her step!

GLORIA YACKIMEC

CNHP, CAHP, BioEnergetic screening technician

Gloria Yackimec is a Complementary and Alternative HealthCare Practitioner and the proud owner of Mindful Health Solutions in Lac La Biche, Alberta, Canada. After working for many years in an emergency unit as an LPN, OR scrub nurse, CPR instructor and volunteering for a search and rescue group, it became apparent the fast paced lifestyle was taking a toll on her own health.

Slowing her lifestyle down and purchasing a bio energetic machine allowed her to start on a fresh path, seeking answers of imbalances in the body and what the root cause may be. She worked with clients as well on herself and wanting more, enrolled in the CAHP program; took a year off to reflect, heal, study and learn.

Today as her business is expanding, Gloria is guiding, counselling and searching for the root cause link to health imbalances, while teaching her clients that recognizing the body as a whole, is the first step in one’s journey to better and better health.

Utilizing different modalities and tools, Gloria continues her studies and strives to help others feel optimal and see themselves in the best light possible.
