KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Amy Magella Gigena

Amy Magella Gigena is the author of the award-winning book, Heartlight: A story about believing and becoming, becoming and believing. She will guide us on a metaphoric journey through the discovery of the truest self. Using the themes of her book, and the vibrations of believe-become and become-believe, we will explore our individual stories and how they impact our path in life. As we take this journey to the self and back, we will explore the value of our own heart light, being true to the truest version of our self, and how we can emerge from our personal labyrinths as Heartlight Warriors.

SPEAKER - Yuri McGaha

Yuri is going to take us on an exploration of Ayurvedic medicine and raise your vibration through food and herbs. Her passion for food and herbs will take you to a new level of appreciation for the way you nourish your body. She will have you explore the five natural elements, the six tastes, and help you discover what your Dosha is.

She holds certifications from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as well as the Ayurveda Healing Institute. In her case, her first and most important client turned out to be herself. Struggling with her own issues of weight gain, adrenal fatigue, skin issues, and more, Yuri healed herself and experienced her personal renewal, or “Second Wind.” Yuri’s healing modalities include Ayurveda, an ancient yet powerful mind-body health system from India. In addition, she uses the powerful, energetic vibration qualities of foods and herbs as medicine for optimal health and wellbeing.

SPEAKER - Sarah Dailey

Raising the Vibration into Self Love. Sarah will share her journey from pre-to-post pregnancy dance, and how it helped her become more at peace with herself, on and off the dance floor. Worries about appearance, judgments, careers, family or anything else, can often weigh us down, even unknowingly. “There’s a wonderful freedom in being present in one’s self without the worries that often seep into our daily lives. As someone who has experienced both the meditative and spiritual side of the dance, I give my whole self to the music and the moment. When you can truly share a story from within, it’s magical.” Sarah’s contagious passion will inspire you to discover and embrace your own magic.

📷Sarah Dailey is a seventh-year student of Classic Egyptian-style dance, Raks Sharki. What began as an alternative form of exercise, soon turned into a life-changing hobby. She continues to grow her dance skills by taking private lessons, attending workshops, and performing in and out of the local area. Her experience includes performing with a troupe as well as soloing. In addition to being a dancer, Sarah is a full-time resident of the North Coast and is a mother and Executive Director. She also enjoys animals, running, yoga, books, and travel.
