Awareness Film Festival and Reiki healing!

Every autumn, in Downtown LA, the Awareness Film Festival takes place. This year, the 9th annual Film Festival occurred from September 27th to October 7. It showcased multiple films that raised awareness for social, environmental and political topics that shape our communities. Filmmakers and viewers gathered to watch many amazing and thought- provoking feature and short films on the big screen.

Throughout the festival, filmmakers and attendees had the opportunity to connect with each other through the filmmaker Q&A’s and panels, all of which were recorded and live streamed on social media, giving people who couldn’t attend, the chance to be apart of the action. Guests were able to partake in different events such as the opening party, filmmaker brunch, and closing party. At the end, awards were presented films that went above and beyond to bring awareness to viewers. All of the films were inspiring and it’s safe to say that everyone left the festival learning something they never knew before!

Ticket sales that remained after paying for the theater all go back into the Heal One World studios, which offer a variety of health and wellness classes on a free or sliding scale basis. The classes positively impact the surrounding communities and for the LA location bring a little peace to the otherwise bustling City of Angels. The promote preventative care and are all taught by knowledgeable volunteer instructors. The studio offers a growing amount of classes, including Yoga, Qi Yoga, Reiki Healing Circles, Meditation, Tai Chi, Boot Camp, Zumba and Nutrition Classes.

Reiki healing is one of the newest classes offered at the studio. Reiki circles collectively send healing energy to those who need it. They create awakening experiences of peace and happiness and provide a calm way to connect people, ultimately creating healing for everyone involved.

In Fresno we have been visiting veterans and offering chair yoga and we are also offering our free classes at the Woodward Park Library and took part in a senior resource fair in October and new monthly classes for Team RWB (veteran support group). This month we have offered Goat Yoga, Reiki Workshop, Raw Food Workshop, Healthy Eating Workshop and posture workshops!

We are excited for the New Year and new avenues for service. We are honored to again be honored as a Top Non Profit for 2018 by Great Non-Profits!

We had yet another eventful quarter here at Heal One World!

With the help of a wonderful summer intern, we had a second Open House in July, with Tai Chi, Meditation, Reiki, and Yoga. People in the neighborhood strolled by to say hi and learned about our great offerings! We also had many people volunteer, including high school students from Key Club. Open House has been a great opportunity for our teachers and students to come together, forming deeper connections. Classes have been going great with meditation and yoga in full force.

This quarter we put on an Intuitive Eating & Yoga workshop, the popular Yoga Nidra, and also hosted an 8-week yoga workshop series "Rooted." We also had a Korean Yoga class for 2 months, by a yoga teacher from South Korea - Nua. It was an honor to be able to serve the local Korean speaking community. We will be offering Yoga in Japanese and Prenatal Yoga this Fall.

We have a lot of dedicated hearlers among out volunteer yoga teachers. Whitney Martin is offering Cranialsacral Therapy and Daria Grigorieva is offering private energy healing. We are hearing some great outcomes from the people that take these services!

Upcoming is our annual Awareness Raising Fundraiser, the Awarenses Film Festival. Please come and support our organization and see films that make a difference in the world! Taking place September 27-October 7th at LA Live Regal Cinemas. See the line up here: awarenessfestival.org

Our Fresno location is working with the Veterans Admistration as well as St. Agnes Hospital and the free library classes resume in October. The location will be adding breathwork and dance therapy as well.

We look forward to our fall workshops to end the year strong!

We've had a great quarter here at Heal One World! More free classes being offered then ever before! 

At the Los Angeles location, we had an open house and Awareness Festival film screening in May and held demonstrations of some of our yoga and reiki meditation classes. We also partnered with the Los Angeles District of California Dietetics Association who came out to provide nutrition education. We are planning to have nutrition classes at the studio as well! 

We had two workshops this month - Qi Gong by Deviyana and Yoga Nidra by Rita Burgos. Both workshops had great turnout and students loved them. Rita Burgos will return to teach an Ayureveda workshop! We've also added a new weekly class: Breathwork, by Brian Neufang. 

Our most popular class at this time is the wednesday evening Reiki Healing Circle. We have two amazing Reiki masters who take turns teaching the class. The sense of community is very strong and full of healing energy! The class is followed by Qi Yoga by Patricia Ang which has been a very popular class as well! 

And last but not least we've onboarded a new summer intern who will be assisting with fundraising, and community outreach.
