Your Retreat Leaders
David is the founder of www.GroundedMind.com, host of the Energy Matters podcast, and former Director of the Clairvoyant Center of Hawaii.
When David was 16 he had a radical shift in consciousness and began meditating deeply and studying a variety of meditative traditions. You don’t have to be in the Himalayas to find peace of mind, but it doesn’t hurt to learn from someone who has. With over 10 years of teaching experience, David has cultivated a program that connects energetic experience, ancient wisdom traditions, and humor, to create a safe atmosphere for people interested in developing their natural spiritual abilities and tapping into their creative potential through meditation.
David is also an intuitive reader and healer by training. He spent over 7 years living in Hawaii, training in and teaching clairvoyance. Having done thousands of readings himself, David has created a unique style of communication with an incredible ability to see energy. He currently resides in upstate New York, travels and teaches.
Taeler began her yoga journey at the age of 19 when she found yoga to be an infinite source of physical and spiritual healing. She studied under Ganga White at The White Lotus Foundation and continues to deepen her studies in restorative yoga therapy.
She has taught yoga to students of all ages, from kindergarteners to the elderly.
As a dancer and a gymnast yoga naturally complements her lifestyle by both challenging her physical being while nurturing past injuries.
She teaches both therapeutic restorative yoga, and vinyasa with a focus on alignment. She is passionate about aromatherapy and uses essential oils to complement her practice and teaching.
Taeler is the owner of The Little Yoga Studio, a 200hr Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor, and a certified Reiki healer.

"As a beginner I feel so calm with these meditations. Step by step you learn new tools. I'm not intimidated but definitely challenged. Never thought I'd enjoy sitting still so much."
"I'm tired of all the gurus. I like David's style and clarity. A normal person teaching meditation. Thank you universe!"
"I love how peaceful and meditative the classes are...Taeler always takes the time to show me the correct formation and is so caring, not only as a yoga instructor, but as a friend."
