Daniel Beavington,

From a Douglas College Sport Science Diploma I developed a highly kinesthetic approach to understanding, maintaining and enhancing the workings of the body.  This was further refined by my years as a professional drummer, my time spent as a sports coach and my work with special needs children.  In February of 2018, I completed my training at the Vancouver School of Healing Arts in the Bodywork Therapy Program and became passionately committed to working in that field.

Self-development has also played a pivotal role in guiding me towards my life purpose in the healing arts.  I did intensive training through the respected Warrior-sage program and continued studying in the fields of neuroscience and psychology.

I am dedicated to using my skills and training to benefit my community and I am currently offering service through innovative courses in relatable, humorous consciousness as well as behavioral videos that foster the growth and competence to better equip us for life. Will you join me in this exciting journey of self-discovery? Visit: Awakened Living

Ira Hiedemann

My name is Ira Heidemann. I work as a Jikiden Reiki Practitioner in Vancouver, BC.  Jikiden Reiki is a Japanese energy healing therapy that is completely natural and non-invasive. Reiki is always beneficial and effective in activating a person’s natural healing system, boosting the body’s natural cleansing process and empowering the immune system. It is effective in helping practically every known illness by tackling the origin of the illness. Each treatment is a calming, relaxing and peaceful experience that also helps to relieve pain. It is for anyone who seeks a sense of wellbeing, mindfulness and holistic health. Jikiden Reiki can be used to treat physical as well as mental health issues. I offer treatments in person, as well as at distance (Enkaku Reiki).                   

When I offer Reiki treatments, I feel connected to nature, to the universal life force energy. I feel passionate about helping people heal with Jikiden Reiki treatments, and improving their physical and mental health. I have seen amazing transformations in my clients’ health due to Reiki treatments. Since beginning my Reiki practice in 2019, I have personally experienced powerful healing throughout my body, and I feel grateful in being able to share this wonderful natural healing modality with my clients, friends and family.

 Devin Ashworth, Teacher, Yogi, Spiritual guide.

Kundalini yoga was brought to the west by a teacher named yogi Bahjan in the 60's.

It consists of many different sets of techniques we call kriyas which involves:

  • mudras (hand positions)
  • mantras (chanting)
  • asana (postures).
Together creating an opportunity to safely raise kundalini energy at the base of the spine.
This energy movement cleanses the energy centers (Chakras) of the body .
Kundalini yoga is the practice of awareness and was given to the royals in ancient India,
as a way to stay radiant and powerful, which can be understood as healthy and strong mentally.
My name is Devin Ashworth and I look forward to teaching you this ancient practice, 
Sometimes called a science now, this practice can elevate and uplift every soul.
