Lydia has been immersed in the practice of yoga since early childhood. Born in Utah and raised in Colorado and Georgia by a mother who has taught yoga for over 20 years, she felt drawn to the practice at a young age. In 2019, she completed her first 200 hour teacher training at Sivananda Ashram in the Bahamas. There, she deepened her understanding of the spiritual and philosophical aspects of yoga and fell in love with the way these ancient tools synthesized body, mind and spirit and brought her into a feeling of harmony.
Eager to expand her knowledge, she began bodywork training at the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy in 2020. When the pandemic disrupted the program and halted the course, she called upon the equanimity she had cultivated in her practice to gather resilience and patiently wait until she could return and complete her certification in 2021.
Upon completion, Lydia moved to the sunny West Coast and took a job on Catalina Island as a massage therapist. She feels at home in the California sunshine and is fueled by the flow of fresh air, moving water, bright days and the infinite possibility that daily yoga practice and self-care create in her life. Her greatest joy is to share the gifts of wellness with others.

As a practice, massage therapy has been the greatest work that Terry has done with his life. The ability to connect with people in such a vulnerable way has opened up many paths to healing for both his clients as well as himself. Terry is also a CrossFit coach, which created an opportunity to work with athletes from multiple backgrounds that were dealing with physical injuries both recent and from years prior. Through this, he has gained a lot of experience in pain management, injury prevention, myofascial release techniques, medical/ clinical based massage, and more. One of Terry’s greatest strengths is his intuition, and with that comes a natural affinity for energy work. Terry’s philosophy is, "massage therapy is more than a physical experience, it is mental and emotional as well".
Terry’s approach to each person that he gets to work with is to create a personal connection, check in on their mental and emotional wellbeing to see how that might be affecting their physical condition, and decompressing their sympathetic nervous system response to get them out of their “fight or flight” state and more into their bodies. It’s a nurturing blend of clinical and energy based massage for the sole purpose of healing.
