creating a ripple of calm
Our mission is to create a community space...
where it's okay to share emotions.
where yoga is more than just poses.
where slowing down is celebrated.
We are at our best when we act from a place of clarity.
We specialize in the integration of mental health counseling and the scientific benefits of yoga. Stress, anxiety, sleeplessness, depression and chronic pain have both emotional and physical consequences. We teach our clients how to slow down enough to recognize the unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviors to then find the opportunity for creating positive mental and physical shifts. Our comprehensive approach allows you to not only heal from the chronic and acute impacts of your mental health, but to also adopt and grow a preventative well-being mindset.
About the Owner, Kerry Biskelonis LPC, RYT-200
Licensed Professional Counselor & Registered Yoga Teacher
After nearly a decade in corporate wellness and human resources, across diverse industries from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies, Kerry witnessed too many professionals struggling with stress and lacking the tools to cope. As a former Type-A who glorified being busy herself, Kerry saw first hand the benefits of yoga and meditation on her mental and physical health. In deciding to work more directly with her chronically stressed peers, Kerry completed her M.ED from DePaul University in Clinical Counseling while simultaneously graduating as a 200-level yoga instructor with CorePower Yoga.
In the following years, Kerry has practiced integrative wellness counseling and coaching at private practices in Chicagoland before moving to Michigan. Always a student, Kerry has trained with renown mindfulness based psychologists Mary NurrieStearns, Donald Altman and Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar; leading yoga therapists Livia Budrys, Laura Jane Mellencamp, Francine Kelley, J J Gormley-Etchells, Mark Lilly, Ivy Katz and Tiffany Cruikshank; top mindfulness thought leaders Jim Dethmer, Roshi Joan Halifax, Rasmus Hougaard, Rich Fernandez, Mark Higbie and Michael Carroll; and innovative neuroscientists Richard Davidson and Dr. Leonard Cerullo.
With the integration of psychology, health coaching, yoga and meditation, Kerry’s clients see dramatic changes in their ability to handle life’s stressors, build deeper understanding of themselves and ultimately thrive in their lives.
Kerry's passion for well-rounded, science-based approaches to stress extends to her personal life as well. She enjoys reading, cycling, yoga, cooking, traveling, walking her dog, spending summer weekends on Lake Michigan and soaking up every minute with her son and husband in Pure Michigan.
