What Is Holistic Health?

Holistic health encompasses the union of mind, body, and spirit. It speaks to the essential wholeness that exists within all of us; that profound link between our physical, emotive, and existential being. Through harmonizing the three elements, a greater sense of balance is achieved in life—this enables one to gain means far deeper than the targeted treatment of an illness or a certain symptom. Holistic health goes beyond simply treating symptoms at face value — its methods address the root causes of spiritual dissonance that manifest as disease and disharmony in life. Holistic health recognizes that everything is intertwined—how subtle shifts on one level can reverberate into major positive changes on many others.

Do Holistic Health Practices Actually Work?

There is plenty of scientific research out there proving the effectiveness of many holistic health practices. But the best way to know whether or not holistic health practices are effective is to try them yourself. Pick something you feel drawn to, or that aligns with your specific needs. The benefits of holistic health practices are typically gradual, so that can be tough for those of us who prefer instant gratification. The key to making things like yoga and meditation work for you is to do them consistently, and to incorporate them into your life for long-lasting change.

What Does Western Medicine Say About Alternative Healing Methods?

For centuries, Western medicine widely disparaged any holistic health practices. Practices such as yoga, meditation, and acupuncture were largely forgotten as advances in science accelerated. But lately more and more people are recognizing their timeless efficacy, which has prompted a renaissance of sorts in these very same methods. People now eagerly incorporate the healing potential of yoga and meditation into their lifestyles, in addition to other forms of alternative medicine such as acupuncture—at times even opting for them over traditional medical solutions. Whether through reducing stress, increasing physical strength and agility, or instilling mindfulness—holistic health practices like these offer far-reaching benefits.

What Is Mindfulness And Why Is It Important To Our Health?

In our modern world, we often find ourselves rushing through life, overwhelmed by constant distractions and external pressures. This leaves us little time to truly engage with the present moment. We may find ourselves constantly dwelling on past mistakes, worrying about future events, or simply going through the motions of our daily routine without truly experiencing life as it happens. However, it is in this present moment that we can truly find joy and fulfillment. Mindfulness is a powerful practice that helps us cultivate clear thinking and awareness in the here and now. By making a conscious effort to stay present and engaged with the world around us, we can break free from the mental chatter and live our lives more fully.

What Is The Subtle Body?

In the sphere of holistic health, we focus on the harmonious balance of the subtle body. Our bodies are not just confined to the tangible features of our flesh and bones. Rather, there is an intricate network of energy that surrounds and permeates us, known as the aura. Holistic healing involves the fine-tuning of our subtle body’s energy flow to restore balance to our physical and spiritual selves. This subtle body generates our emotions, our empathy and interconnectedness. It is believed that any physical, mental or emotional affliction can be traced back to imbalances in our subtle body. With the power of holistic health, we can ignite the vitality, healing and balance of our subtle body.


Certified Instructor


I fully embraced the yoga asana practice after an injury prevented me from running. Seeking a practice that would bring me peace and comfort in my body I immersed myself in the study and practice of yoga. This led me to completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training and social emotional learning certification. During this journey my passion to make yoga inclusive was sparked! I truly believe that yoga is for everybody!! Outside of the studio I am a wife, mom of 2 adult children and a special education teacher who loves connecting with nature whether it be hiking, biking, gardening, skiing or enjoying a book outside. I am also a Reiki Master/Practitioner.

Tiffany Reinitz

Certified Instructor


It was around 2005 when Tiffany first heard the word Ayurveda and learned its meaning – and it changed her life forever. It was a moment of “before” Ayurveda in her life and “after” – having learned a whole different paradigm of health and wellness, while still in pharmacy school. With the two types of medicine being as different as possible, Tiffany found deep healing and meaning applying Ayurvedic principles to her own life and has since made it her life’s work to integrate the two types of medicine – seeing value in both. She likes to focus first on the emphasis of preventative medicine valued & practiced most in Ayurveda.

For Tiffany & her family, Ayurveda has become foundational for how to live the best life possible not only physically but mentally, emotionally & spiritually as well. Tiffany practices yoga not only as a physical exercise but primarily to embrace the lifestyle and philosophy behind the vast and ancient teachings. She has been to India 8 times – most often both formally & informally studying yoga, meditation, Tibetan Medicine and Ayurveda in addition to diving deeper into her own practices & personal wellness journey.

Tiffany’s interest in complementary and alternative therapies lie primarily in Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, Tibetan Medicine, energy healing and more. She is a a board certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor (2021), Ayurvedic Practitioner (2023), & level 1 certified (200 hour) Kundalini yoga instructor (2016). Additionally, she is a Reiki Master (2008) & holds a certificate in Complementary and Alternative therapies from the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota (2008).

She is a highly skilled critical care hospital pharmacist prior to finding her passion and life’s purpose in Ayurveda & yoga. She is the mother to two amazing daughters and is married to her wonderful husband Mark.

In addition, I would like to acknowledge that I am aware of the access to this information my privilege has allowed me to have. I have benefited from the rich traditions of this amazing & ancient culture that historically has been marginalized.

Laura Ritchie

Certified Instructor

Chakra Healing

Initially hesitant to give it a try, Laura picked up yoga eight years ago and has never looked back. It transformed her physical and mental health, as well as her passion for spirituality and self-discovery.  Overtime, she expanded her spiritual horizons to include meditation, pranayama, Reiki, and plant medicines. For Laura, healing is an essential part of her daily wellness routine, which she believes is necessary for her own physical and mental health, as well as for bringing healing to others.

When Laura started noticing the benefits of her yoga practice, she felt as if she had found an answer she had been searching for for a long time. She learned that most of our suffering is a result of an imbalance in our body or mind, and that holistic health practices can effectively and safely address the core issue, rather than treat at symptom-level. Laura’s profound life changes spurred her desire to share what she’d learned, and continues to learn, with others. She understands the power to improve our health and lives, and is dedicated to helping others unlock that potential.

When you join one of Laura’s classes or book a personal session, you will be greeted with an open, welcoming environment committed to your healing and well being. Laura gratefully shares what she has learned through her own journey, and honors the unique journey of every individual she works with. She embraces a holistic approach to life and is open about the transformative impact it has had on her. Laura believes fully in the famous Yogic phrase “Namaste,” meaning ‘the divinity in me honors the divinity in you.’ 

In addition to teaching, Laura spends time diving deeper into holistic wellness practices, learning about them from all angles to provide the most comprehensive service for others, and routine for herself.  Laura’s other passion is writing, and she writes regular blogs about yoga and plant medicine.  Laura enjoys the outdoors, and travels frequently during the harsh Midwest winters to escape the cold and train with her Teachers.  Laura’s number one priority, however, is her son Arlo, who has been her life’s greatest blessing, inspiration, and challenge.
