Owner + Founder of GO INWARD
Kundalini Meditation and Yoga Teacher
Transpersonal Body/Mind/Energy Practitioner
Raised in the Long Beach community and known for her 20 years in a thriving real estate business Kelsea always had a passionate calling to be a healer. This led her to the Santa Barbara Body Therapy Institute where she studied body work and this began her journey into healing. Her gift for healing and touch led her next to the Lionheart Institute in Los Angeles where she studied Qi gong and energy medicine becoming a Transpersonal Energy therapist.
Throughout the years, Kelsea continued to educate herself on different spiritual modalities while continuing to work in real estate. Her intuitive gifts and deep love for her community led her to create a community based group called the Illuminators. The Illuminators enabled her to meet other healers in the community, commit to a regular monthly practice and provided her a space to go inward. Through this journey of commitment and introspection, she felt a divine calling to Step into The Kundalini yoga teacher training program at Seventh Chakra in Huntington Beach. She had been a student of this practice for 15 years.
This intensive nine -month Kundalini yoga and meditation training was transformative and enabled her to apply these principles to everyday life. Being a business woman, a mother, a wife, an artist and a healer this training and commitment to a disciplined practice has given her the ability to have a wider window of tolerance for her own life’s interactions and those that she holds space for in her community.
This duality of being a healer and surviving in a financial driven world pulled at her from both angles for many years of her life. One day a wise teacher and healer, Dr. Daniel Ryan, asked her a question that forever changed her perspective.
“Why do you feel you have to hang a shingle as a healer. Why don’t you just be one, be the real you. That can be the driver in anything you do.” This revelation spoke to her soul and she finally decided it was time to step in to the teaching role and share this beautiful technology with all her community.
Kelsea’s mission is to help others tap into their infinite self so they may be better teachers, professionals, parents, and community leaders to take ownership over how their vibration affects their wellbeing and the lives of everyone they touch.
Opening GO INWARD was not planned. It is a Divine calling for the times we are living in. The work we are doing here is designed to open your heart, strengthen your nervous system, and let your infinite driver be the master over your mind.
Now she proudly holds space for her real estate clients and is the founder of GO INWARD holistic sanctuary in Belmont Shore, California.
Director of Possibilities
Rachel grew up in a household that was steeped in religion and care giving. Nurturing people is a constant theme in her life, as many in her immediate family are nurses, and she always innately felt compelled to take care of others.
Rachel followed a similar path into healthcare and works for a mission based health care organization where she works with Senior Leadership to promote the vision of the organization.
In 2014, Rachel was seeking more of an immediate connection with her community and a desire to heal. So, she and Kelsea Mazzacco, founder of GO INWARD, started a group called the Illuminators. The Illuminators is a community based group of people committed to a life of Illumination and Awareness. The Illuminators exposed Rachel to different spiritual modalities which broaden her interest and love of Energy Healing, Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Acupuncture and Intuitive Coaching.
Rachel is thrilled to support the GO INWARD team with brand awareness and promotion.
Many of these practitioners at GO INWARD have supported her in her journey to stand in her truth, release old patterns and lead an authentic, fulfilling life with her husband and daughter.
My first encounter with yoga was during the pregnancy of my daughter, Sadie Faye, in 1995. I found a book about natural childbirth and began practicing from pictures of long haired hippie mommas demonstrating postures. After a successful natural birth I forgot about yoga as I began the job of motherhood. Then in 1999 after separating from her father I found my way back to yoga under the mindful, creative, and eclectic instruction of Gabriel Hall. He was my first teacher and the person who suggested I become one. This suggestion was not easily taken. I was a shy introverted artist who preferred long hours in an art studio listening to music from my walkman immersed in my own creative world. I could not imagine standing in front of a group of people telling them what to do. At the time I was also working in the field of Behavior Therapy with Autistic children. I believe yoga is helpful for anyone struggling. It has helped me overcome many obstacles both physically and emotionally and I always recommend it to anyone facing challenges. I suggested yoga for a child I worked with who had a weak core, short attention, poor balance and spacial awareness. Her team agreed that yoga might help and I was given the job of shadowing her during kid’s yoga classes. It was during this time that I was asked to sub once when the teacher had an emergency. I did. The kid’s loved it and so did I. After this I began to see a door opening. An opportunity to help others through a practice that helped me so much.
In 2004 I studied with Maty Ezraty and Chuck Miller at Yoga Works completing their 200 hour teacher training. The training taught me how to teach a safe class with a focus on correct alignment and sequencing and I began teaching around the same time. In 2008 I took Saul David Raye’s 200 hour teacher training which taught me to teach from the heart. I am forever grateful for the trainings. Both gave me so much.
My classes are full of my artistic spirit. I sequence creative flows with music to match. I feel like teaching is my art form now. When I walk around the room while teaching I am inspired by the way each student expresses their practice. My hope is that they feel something beautiful, creative, graceful and strong within them that will help them through whatever obstacles they need to overcome.
ThetaHealer®, Body Code Certified Practitioner + Divine Energetics Practitioner
Madison was raised in a spiritually awake home and has been in tune with holistic and metaphysical practices for as long as she can remember. She was taught from an early age how to use her intuition and tap into tap into other realms. As expectations of life and society began to weigh in, Madison’s spiritual upbringing was put on the back burner as she moved her life down a more pragmatic path.
Naturally Madison did what she was "supposed" to do. She went college on a water polo scholarship, received her Bachelors Degree in Fashion Merchandising, then proceeded to follow the next logical path and began climbing the corporate ladder.
After years of ignoring the incessant callings of her inner voice, Madison experienced what some might call a quarter life crisis. The expectations and demands of the professional world had taken a toll, diminishing her light and joy.
The severe anxiety, depression, and physical illnesses gave Madison the opportunity to explore alternative methods of energy healing. In turn, she re-awakened her intuitive abilities, learned how to heal herself, support others in their healing, and discovered a perpetual sense of joy and fulfillment. After years of studying different modalities and practicing under the guidance of several healers she is now a ThetaHealer®, Body Code Certified Practitioner, and Divine Energetics Practitioner.
The modalities Madison practices give her a unique and specialized approach to understanding the body. Through intuitive guidance and muscle testing, the energetic imbalances and beliefs affecting ones physical and energetic bodies are identified and released instantly. The clearing or correction of these imbalances allows for the body's innate self-healing ability to take over. As a result, energy levels increase, pain and malfunction disappear, and emotional issues and trauma become manageable to non-existent allowing the body’s systems return to their proper function.
Madison’s goal is for one to experience a renewed sense of lightness, awareness, and empowerment to make the changes necessary to create their dream life.

My journey into healing arts began in 1997 as my mind, heart & soul was captured by the study of Shiatsu, Acupressure & Sports Therapy under the teachings and guidance of my sense, Glenn Furakawa, at Tsuko School of Eastern Therapy. After receiving my 500 hr CMT certificate at Tsuko I focused my studies of Polarity Therapy, Reiki & Acupressure at Twin Lakes College in Santa Cruz completing the Polarity program. From Santa Cruz I made my way to Esalen Institute in Big Sur studying Esalen Massage to round out my 700 hours of study.
With 20 years experience as a Professional Massage Therapist and Artist, my passion for the healing arts has been rekindled with the study of CranioSacral Therapy at ISBP - Life Energy Institute in Culver City where I have received my 250 hr CranioSacral Therapy Certificate.
In my mind CranioSacral Therapy is one of the most elegant and brilliant forms of body work because it recognizes the ability of the body to heal itself. It is a true honor for me to do CranioSacral as my goal is to meet you where you are in your healing process.

Originally from England, Alison came to the States to marry her American sweetheart 30-odd years ago. After careers as diverse as chef concierge and kindergarten teacher, and taking time out to mother their beautiful daughter, Alison began studying yoga in 2005. It was clear to her from the start that yoga was far more than simple exercise: the calming effects on the mind intrigued her. Yoga naturally led to an interest in meditation, which eventually led to rigorous annual ten day silent retreats. Alison has attended workshops all over the L.A. area with luminaries such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Amma the Hugging Saint, Jack Kornfield, and Sharon Salzberg. The spiritual questing continues with Voice Dialogue, art and SoulCollage®, inquiry, book study and small meditation groups. Always, yoga is the constant: so many teachers over the years offering their different styles: physically challenging classes, fun classes, meditative classes, classes heavy on ritual and chanting and breath work. Three years ago, Alison took the plunge to become a teacher herself and completed Yoga World’s first 200 hour teacher training with Gabriel Hall. She continues to grow in finding her own voice. She incorporates the teachings of many of those early teachers who so inspired her, but her preferred style is to teach gentle yoga, or as she puts it, “lots of rolling around on the floor with bolsters.” Now in her 60’s (and still happily married!), Alison is delighted to have found what she wants to be at long last. Her classes are designed to stretch, strengthen and relax the body, and soothe, focus and balance the mind, while using large dollops of humor and inspiration. All are welcome. Private lessons available on request. www.alisonjcameron.com | email@example.com

Yoga Teacher / Healing Arts
Teri has been a devoted student, practitioner and sharer of practices from healing wisdom traditions for more than 25 years.
In the early 1990's she began a dedicated path of study and work in the healing arts of massage and bodywork with foundations in both eastern and western traditions. She was introduced to teachings and practices from Taoist, Traditional Chinese, Yogic and Ayurvedic Medicines, as well as from the current and evolving understandings in anatomy, psychology, somatics and biomechanics. She learned therapeutic and meditative practices with roots in these traditions and began to experience their benefits in all aspects of her life. Her study and practice deepened and grew, as did a sense of feeling guided, protected and nourished by them.
Over the years, she has been invited to accompany many individuals - family, friends, clients and students - on their healing paths throughout all stages of living and dying. Sharing from the heart what nourishes, restores, helps to reduce suffering and build strength, what quiets the mind and opens the inner ear, what sustains the spirit and helps transform difficulties and limitations into the stardust we came from is a blessing her heart will spend the rest of her life growing into.
In her classes she provides a safe and sacred space for each individual, regardless of physical ability, to draw the awareness inward and to meet our ever changing selves as we are, in the moment, with kindness and compassion. Each session is an opportunity to carefully and gently explore what's possible through the conscious linking of movement with breath, and to experience first hand from within, the medicine we are when the mind comes to rest in the heart and the breath.
In addition to her public classes, she offers private one on one, as well as smaller group sessions through firstname.lastname@example.org

Yin Yoga Teacher
In reflecting on my yoga journey, I remember as a young girl in the 80’s attending yoga classes with my beloved Mom (who I’m sure people saw as a yogurt and crunchy granola tree hugging hippy which I so admired!). I loved those yoga classes and to this day I can recall the instructor playing Christopher Cross’ song “Sailing” as the final tune, which still “takes me away.” Fast forward to young adulthood when I started my career in the corporate world over 31 years ago. While living in several rural communities (where yoga was virtually unheard of) and raising my own children, my yoga practice was sporadic at best. I moved from the Midwest to CA in 2009 where I rediscovered yoga in several formats. Over time, I developed a longing to deepen my spiritual and physical practice, and to find some balance between my stressful corporate job and my personal life. In 2015, with an interest in furthering my own practice, I found myself drawn to the International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre 200 hour teacher training. This was a month long spiritual yoga immersion program that required living a vegetarian yogic lifestyle at an ashram that promoted physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth and well-being. Sivananda is an authentic lineage of classical yoga. It was a transformative and deeply personal experience. Nevertheless, with maintaining my full time career I never anticipated that I would have the opportunity or calling to teach. As luck (or fate) would have it, one day while attending my regular class the teacher had an emergency and I was asked to step-in. From that time on, my teaching journey and further personal growth has continued to unfold. In 2016 I received Reiki attunement from Reiki Master Lauren Adamczyk. I now enjoy sprinkling in a bit of healing touch and aromatherapy in my classes. I am grateful for the opportunity to hold space for others on their journey to find balance in life, and in return I have found that I am more balanced by giving.

Gabriel studied and practiced yoga throughout college while completing a degree in philosophy at Cal State Long Beach. It was there that he was introduced to Iyengar style of hathayoga. Later he spent a summer working at the front desk in exchange for classes at the Iyengar Institute in Los Angeles. At the institute Gabriel practiced with Leslie Peters and Karin O’Bannon. Years after he would complete two modules of teacher training courses conducted by Karin O’Bannon in Costa Mesa. It was in early 1999 when Gabriel completed a rigorous and thorough teacher training program at Yoga Works in Santa Monica. The training was a blend of Ashtanga and Iyengar styles of yoga. While the initial course was taught by Maty Ezraty and Lisa Walford the prominence of Yoga Works attracted many of the country’s most elite teachers. Over the course of many years Gabriel has been afforded the opportunity to study with Aadil Palkhivala, Gary Kraftsow, Dona Holleman, Kofi Busia, Judith Lasater, Bryan Kest, Richard Freeman and John Friend. Gabriel has also completed a concentrated teacher training course taught by Erich Schiffmann. Following the course Gabriel enjoyed a brief assistantship with Erich in Venice at Sacred Movement. As a complement to his study of philosophy and practice of yoga Gabriel has been trained in the tradition of Thai Yoga therapy under the watchful supervision of Saul David Raye. In addition to incorporating elements into his yoga classes he also conducts private sessions of Thai Yoga therapy.
