Meet The Team
Hello, my name is Donna R. Mellott. I was born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina and in a very circuitous way landed on the Mississippi gulf coast in 1991. I’ve lived in Pass Christian with my husband and various pets since 1999.
I have a BFA in Graphic Design from Mississippi State University and a BA in English from the University of Southern Mississippi. I also trained as an Operating Room Technician in the Army Reserves. I presently work as a graphic designer at Stennis Space Center.
I’ve held certifications as a Personal Trainer, Group Fitness instructor and Spinning instructor, and competed for years in mountain bike racing, triathlons, and cycling time trials.
My Yoga journey began when I picked up a book in high school and followed some of the instructions on various asanas. I was intrigued. Over the years, I popped in and out of classes. Around 2002 I made the decision to become a Yoga teacher and have taught classes since 2004. I hold a certification with Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT). Of course, the learning never ends – I have attended Yoga workshops, retreats, and continuing education courses. I continue to be mesmerized by the immense knowledge of the Yoga Philosophy, and I hope that my humble offerings as a teacher help to enlighten in some way.
My abiding belief is that we are a “strand in the web of life”. We have an obligation to protect and share the planet generously and humanely with all living creatures.

Hi there! My name is Amanda.
I am an old soul, empath, highly sensitive, & creative individual. Along my journey I have known pain, darkness, & confusion. What I found is that there are energies present in & around us that can help us heal.
Through the study of reiki, yoga, & meditation I have found specific practices that shifted & lifted darkness. In 2016 I had a dream about attending a yoga class. The very next day I knew I had to go! Yoga healed many emotional and physical problems in my body at that time. In 2018 I was certified as a Kripalu Yoga Teacher through The Kripalu Center for Yoga & Wellness. While yoga helped me understand many beneficial healing practices I wanted to know more about energy! Due to this I studied Holy Fire® Reiki through The International Center for Reiki Training and am a Reiki Master. The study of energy has completely transformed my reality & way of being in the world.
At this time I share this potent medicine with the intention of bringing harmony & resonance to Earth.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, as well as a QHHT Level 2 Practitioner, BQH Practitioner, Reiki Level 2 Practitioner, Certified Past-Life Hypnotist, Yoga for Trauma Practitioner, Shamanic Priestess, Intuitive Tarot Reader, Transpersonal Life-Coach, and Published Author. I’m trained as a therapist, but chose to take a different approach with my clients, turning toward the practice of healing as a whole encompassing practice of the mind, body, and soul, with an emphasis on meaning making. I use exceptional healing experiences and refined guidance to help my clients. Some of my specialties converge in creating ritual for my clients, in the areas of grief, magic, healing, and manifestation.
I’m dedicated to meeting my clients with dignity, respect, kindness, and authenticity. I’m extremely practiced in creating safe spaces, with confidentiality. My educational background ensures that you are with a practitioner who understands trauma, evolution, personal growth, and the psychology of being a human in our culture. My life experience grounds me in my meditative and healing practice. My mind, heart, and spirit are aligned in this work.
Past Life Regressionist, BQH Practitioner, & Quantum Touch Energy Healer
Hi! My name is Jennifer. I'm a Past Life Regressionist, Certified BQH Practitioner, & Quantum Touch Energy Healer. I had a spiritual awakening in 2017, which inspired me to practice Kundalini Yoga & Breathwork.
My goal is to educate & empower others to reach their full spiritual potential through these practices. As an intuitive empath, I aspire to create a safe space filled with love, compassion, & mutual respect. I do this by going into each session with a fully open heart & mind.
My practice is heart-based & centered around connecting to our inner divinity through breathwork. Each session focuses on healing & elevating our consciousness. When we do this, we can awaken the soul.
Joey started his journey in 1974 with Martial Arts. As he got older, he started studying different styles of Martial Arts (Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Isshinryu, Tai Chi to name a few) discovering how to build up Chi and learning deep meditations. Later in the 80s he would discover in a tournament where he saw his friend get hurt and the instructor went over to his friend and did some hand movements and applied some ointment to his friends injured site and for lack of better words healed him, so he was able to finish the competition.
At this point is when Joey started learning about plant medicine and the way energy flows through the body. With intent and focus, he can help others. The more he studied the more he was awoken to other rabbit holes which lead him on a journey to become an Ordained Minister, Reiki Master, Crystal Light Therapy Technician, Crystal Singing Bowl Technician, Chakra Testing and Balancing, Deep Breath work and most recently to Falun Dafa also known as Falan Gong. Joey is knowledgeable in Aroma Therapy and also an intuitive.
