        MY MISSION

        At Healing Yoga Therapy my Mission is to share my personal realizations and discovery about the power of yoga. This is to experience a powerful shift in consciousness that permanently and positively affects ones perception and experience of reality, thereby restoring inner balance. This is the true essence of yoga.

        MY VISION

        At Healing Yoga Therapy my Vision is to make Yoga Therapy a concept and practice that is recognized by and accessible to all. So that every child and every adult may learn and become acquainted with the basic fundamentals of Yoga, thereby be empowered to heal and restore themselves and society at large, to a natural, balanced and sustainable way of life.

        Jenna Iantorno (RYT) has been studying and practicing Yoga since the age of fifteen. She has a background in dance, fitness training and Pilates. While in India she studied Eastern philosophy, meditation and Yoga through the schools of Shivananda Yoga and The Ramakrishna Mission, and worked with other teachers in the healing arts. She intuitively focuses on bringing people back to their natural state of peace and love though the practice of Pranayama (breathwork) and Asanas (postures).

        As a Yoga Therapist Jenna is specializing in bringing yoga into an integrative therapeutic setting, working with other health care practitioners, to provide a more effective balanced treatment plan for patients. Jenna’s classes are fun yet restorative and balanced. If you are looking to slow down, tune in and unfold your greatest inner potential and bliss, Jenna’s yoga therapy sessions will help you regain peace and harmony.

        Awakened Singapore Peranakan Master Ling, a close associate of the Path of Light Center, will be conducting programs again this spring.

        This amazing Master of Reiki, Master Astrologer and Meditation Master and Ph.D. Ayurveda, will be offering Reiki Certification courses from the ancient Peranakan Tradition, Meditation Retreats and Private Astrology readings.
        Master Ling ranks among the top most talented and “blessed” energy healers and astrologers in South-East Asia and is well-known and sought after throughout Thailand, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
        From a young age, Master Ling developed a strong inclination and passion for the sacred and powerful magic arts like the art of mantra and Katha healing.
        At the young age of 20, he began his studies of spiritual healing and magic under the guidance of his guru Swami S. Saraswati. Master Ling further studied with great masters and yogis from China, Tibet and Thailand, to perfect his skills in mantra-healing.
        Probably the most significant skill Master Ling possesses is the art of divination. Using on oriental traditional method called “lime oracle”, he is able to foretell future events, one’s destiny and fortune. This technique taps on primordial wisdom from the beginning of time and has since become a dying art no longer practiced in this day and age.
        Other techniques in his mastery include Wicca and the art of making effective amulets, which he learnt from ascetic hermits and Tibetan yogis.
        In addition, Master Ling is well-versed in traditional medicine systems and practices like Ayurveda and yoga. Throughout his many years of teaching experience, he has trained many students and instructors in the subtler aspects of yoga which are now no longer taught in modern training methods.

        Dr. James Weldon – Known as Yogadhi in India and in some spiritual circles in the United States, is a spiritual visionary, Naturopathic health educator, author and inventor & Author of the book “The Secret Journey to The Enlightened Mind.” As he is fond to say: “I have lived an incredible life of love and awakening. I wake each moring in Gratitude just hoping to have the opportunity to give it all away.”

        This spring he will be conducting workshops at the Path of Light Center and discuss his life and book:

        The Secret Journey is destined to become one of the most beloved spiritual sagas of our time.It is the vivid true story of a child haunted by visions of the past; dark dreams of a terrible death; ancient lives in the distant lands of Tibet. As he grew he found clues meeting a mysterious enlightened being who gave him an incredible gift on an illuminated plane of light. This was the first of three spiritual giants that would guide him for 36 years and some day be known to millions around the world. Join us on this deeply personal spiritual odyssey from darkness to light, from untruth to truth, from death to the shores of immortality.
