Wendy was first introduced to Kundalini Yoga in 2006, where she quickly fell in love with the practice. As a business owner in the Mortgage Industry, she was amazed at how much Kundalini Yoga helped her deal with stress at work, and in other areas of her life. In 2015, she battled through Breast Cancer treatment and used the Kundalini mantras and meditations she had learned to help her get through treatment.  At the end of treatment, she found O’Shea Yoga and the practice lifted her up and was extremely instrumental in her recovery.  After experiencing the benefits of Kundalini Yoga in her own life she was committed to deepening her knowledge and her practice. She enrolled in KRI Level 1 Teacher training with Hari Kaur Khalsa and has completed KRI Certification Level 1. She is honored to be a part of the Kundalini community and is looking forward to the next part of this incredible journey.

Suzanne Andora Barron

Suzanne Andora Barron is a Certified Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner ® and is also a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT). 

Suzanne graduated from Naturally Yoga’s Teacher Training Program in June of 2011 and completed the Professional Jin Shin Jyutsu® Practitioner Course co-sponsored by the Mary Burmeister Jin Shin Jyutsu Institute and Atlantic Health System in 2016.

 Suzanne became a yoga instructor and a Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner because she’s passionate about helping others to realize their potential, whether it be with her students on the mat, or helping her clients gain relief from stress and discomfort via Jin Shin Jyutsu®

She was first introduced to Jin Shin Jyutsu® in 2008 while taking a self help class and learned that simply holding a finger could calm such discomforts as worry and stomach distress.

Suzanne offers private Jin Shin Jyutsu® sessions, self-help Jin Shin Jyutsu® workshops.

History of Jin Shin Jyutsu: According to ancient written records, which remain in the Archives of the Imperial Palace in Japan, Jin Shin Jyutsu® was widely known before the birth of Buddha and Moses.

It was rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai early in the 20th century and his student, Mary Burmeister, brought the Art from Japan to America in the 1950's.

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art: In Jin Shin Jyutsu®, we use our two hands in the form of light touch to release congestion and harmonize the body, mind and spirit. 

Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells. When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. 

Blockages can occur because of our hectic lifestyle, environment and/or genetics. In Jin Shin Jyutsu®, we place our hands on specific locations (known as SELs) on the body which allows the energy to flow more freely.

Benefits: Jin Shin Jyutsu® has been shown to be useful in reducing anxiety and pain, accelerating healing and promoting a greater sense of wellness.

val o'connor  

Her yoga journey began 14 years ago after she became introduced to yoga through an adult education program. She thought yoga would be easy and relaxing and help alleviate stress and provide a compliment to her usual workouts. She was hooked from day one, and the practice has become a daily part of her physical and spiritual life.

After studying with amazing teachers, she became inspired to get her yoga teacher certification. Each time she steps on the mat, she discovers more about herself, some days it’s strength and some days it’s laughter. She loves to integrate breath and movement with a positive spiritual outlook. She believes yoga is a simple everyday tool to heal our bodies and awaken our spirits.
