Holistic practitioners April, Jerome, and Jeffrey have united their complementary areas of expertise in Eastern healing techniques to help patrons foster a well-rounded approach to health and wellness through yoga, life coaching, reiki, and qi gong. Yoga504's yoga instructor, April, leads weekly yoga classes that vary in style, from the vigorous aerobic Vinyasa tradition to the slower-paced Yin yoga practice. When not easing patrons' stress and pain through yoga, she also helps them manage their lives through her life-coaching services, empowering them to effectively manage their time, lose weight, or build a healthy relationship with their estranged shadow. Further reducing patrons' anxiety and tension, Jerome performs reiki sessions designed to channel positive energy to bolster emotional and spiritual health.
Those suffering from chronic pain issues may be able to relate to qi gong practitioner Jeffrey, who began his career in alternative healing after being diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic disease that causes inflammation in the joints with the possibility of the spinal bones eventually fusing together. He credits his experience in Eastern medicine for being fully mobile at age 34—which his doctors believed to be impossible—and strives to help each of his clients manage their ailments though qi gong's therapeutic techniques.
