Meet Our Specialists at O’Shea Yoga
Linda McLachlan, MA, RDN
Linda is a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist and has a Masters degree in Nutrition Education. She is certified in Adult and Adolescent Weight Management and is also a Certified Advanced Practitioner of Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy. For nearly 20 years, Linda has been helping people find creative ways to integrate healthier habits into their busy lives.
Linda practices Integrative and Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy (IFMNT) to promote optimal health, which is an approach that looks deeper at your unique biochemistry and genetic profile to identify your nutritional needs. She has always been fascinated with how different the body can function based on the foods we choose to eat. From her experience over the years, she’s learned how food not only provides calories, but it also provides information that speaks to your individual biochemistry and has a direct effect on whether you end up with disease in your body or not. In fact, one person can absorb and utilize a nutrient completely different from the next person and many common subtle ailments are often early signs of a nutritional imbalance that over time can lead to disease. She helps with all health conditions such as gut imbalances, autoimmune, hormone balance, diabetes, cardiac health and many others. Linda’s assessment will translate this science directly to your plate with specific foods and recipe strategies so you can easily implement the nutrition protocols at home. She also offers several Catered Nutritional Cleanse programs to assist you with getting the healing foods you need onto your table with ease.
Linda believes that in many cases, food can be your medicine, but being well nourished is about more than the foods we eat. It’s also about how we nourish not only our body but our mind and spirit as well. Linda is honored to bring nutritional support services to O’Shea Yoga and feels grateful to share her passion of healing foods with this community.
Fran has always believed in the body’s ability to reach optimal health. With a passion for continuing education and an open mind for many approaches to healthcare, she has studied many types of yoga and QiGong. In 2006, she found her calling upon completing training for craniosacral therapy through the Upledger Institute. This therapy involves a delicate touch to release restrictions in the body, thereby allowing proper rhythm to be restored to the system. The goal is to restore overall better health and increased resistance to disease by tapping into the body’s ability to heal. Fran feels honored to be able to bring this therapy to O’Shea Yoga.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands on approach that releases tensions in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health. Using a soft touch, restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system are released. CST is also used as a preventative health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. It is effective for a wide range of medical problems. The following are conditions that she treats in individuals 18 years of age and over: Stress and tension, Chronic fatigue, Migraines/headaches, Dizziness/vertigo, Sinus problems, Allergies, Chronic neck and back pain, Immune disorders, Fibromyalgia, TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), Menopausal symptoms and Preventative health and maintaining well being.

Suzanne Andora Barron
Suzanne Andora Barron is a Certified Jin Shin Jyutsu
Practitioner ® and is also a Registered Yoga Teacher
Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) is an ancient Japanese Art of harmonizing and balancing energy in the body. A powerful component to Western medicine, JSJ uses the hands and breath to release physical, mental and emotional blockages. It’s a simple, non-invasive, non-toxic way to alleviate and prevent stress, pain and illness.
During the 60-75 minute session, the client is fully clothed. Each session is customized and based on pulse listening (which highlights the area in the body that needs harmonizing), body reading and client requests. At the end of each session, Suzanne offers clients Self Help so they can continue to support their own well-being. Since receiving JSJ sessions herself, Suzanne no longer experiences seasonal allergy symptoms.
Suzanne has offered JSJ sessions at The Ronald McDonald House and The American Cancer Society’s HOPE LODGE in New York City to patients and their caregivers.
Suzanne is also a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) and teaches at Naturally Yoga in Glen Rock, Mount Carmel Church in Ridgewood and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Paterson.
