HK ENERGY CLEARING TESTIMONIALS

“I think and feel that your outward flow of loving kindness, acceptance, awareness and generosity heals as deeply as your energy work from the stones. I can't tell you in words how much that is appreciated.
This body that I'm living in is definitely much more lighter, easier flowing and calmer in all aspects of my everyday life. Again, thank you.” ~ Judy N. [Chakra Energy Balancing]

"I feel so light. Integration has been really wonderful, and I've felt clear and grounded.  Thank you!!!!" ~ Brittany S. [Chakra Energy Balancing]

What an amazing session it was yesterday! I always feel so much better just walking into your sanctuary of gemstones and healing energy. I am deeply grateful for you, your expertise and divine gifts, and your generosity of time.” ~ Mari K. [Chakra Energy Balancing]

"I I feel so much lighter after being able to share with you and after the clearing. I feel like you helped me more in an afternoon than my counselor did in three months! " ~ Wendy L. [Chakra Energy Balancing]

"I came to Erin not really knowing what to expect, saying "Hey if I don't like it, it can be a one time thing". Trust and faith are not always easy to open up to. Then I met Erin in person and she immediately made me smile and feel safe. She guided our 1.5 hr session with talking and learning about each other and she explained things to me in a way I hadn't thought about before. She gave me tools for grounding and finding Breath. She used her stones and imagery to help me find a peace I didn't know was right there. After she taught me the chakras and helped me open, breathe, and find connection, I opened my eyes and cried. Definitely will be coming back and doing this journey with her. Amazing" ~Alani. L. [Chakra Balance Session]

"First off- negative issues with the energy outside the studio have completely gone away. Like completely!! Way to gemstone grid!!" ~ Susan S., Yoga Studio Owner [Environmental Energy Clearing & Gridding]

"Erin is such a gift! She came to our house to do a clearing, as I had experienced an entity in our home. I was uneasy every time I went downstairs. Erin guided my husband and me through a beautiful process of connection while clearing. I was amazed at how she did it. Right away I could feel the difference in the house - room by room as we went. The house is ours now and feels like we're the only ones in it (besides the cats). I'd recommend Erin in a heartbeat for not only clearings, but for energy healing as well. She has helped me tremendously." ~  Ann N. [Environmental Energy Clearing]

"Actually, got me to quit smoking after 30+ years!! Feels great and makes a big difference in my day-to-day! (Client refers to using the breathing techniques shared in session.)

"I've had a lot of energy work done in my life, but experiencing that with you is something I'll never forget!  Best and most profound that I have ever experienced! You are an amazing facilitator, healer and human. Thank you so much Erin!"

~Jon G. [Chakra Balance Session]

"Precious One, I feel reborn! In the thirty-some years of being in the healing realm, I have come across many gifted healers. Each one bringing their own unique ways to transfer, awaken, and use their gifts. Yesterday brings a smile to my face just thinking about it, thank you, thank you. I find you to possess a pure heart, a kind heart, a giving heart. Even more than that, you know exactly what you are doing. You embody it. I am so grateful." ~ Helen G. [Chakra Balance Session]


DEATH DOULA TESTIMONIALS

"I appreciate your acknowledgement of the resident who passed this weekend and welcoming us to talk about her, our grief, and how to live in celebration and not fear." Shirley [Senior resident at Columbine, Fort Collins]

"Good evening, I wanted to let you know how much your Grief Meditation has meant to me.   I lost my mother last year to ovarian cancer, and it has been a very difficult and incredibly lonely time.   I have used the meditation as a way to connect to my mom and to allow my grief to manifest however it comes on that particular day.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this meditation."   ~Lisa M.

"Much more than teaching me to become a death doula, I am feeling like this course is bringing me much closer to being a fully enlightened human.   Thank you for that." ~ Susan I. [2024 Death Doula Certification Program]


HK YOGA & MEDITATION TESTIMONIALS 

“Thanks so much for this recorded class. With my sister's passing and my mother's extended illness there has been a lot of sadness to reflect on. I was also able to appreciate so much joy this year. Thank you for helping me tune into higher knowing. ~Jen W.

[Fascia Yoga Reverence class]
"Erin is wonderful. Her blend of compassion and body knowledge and practical application really resonates.  I am so glad she is a part of your team. I am loving the rhodonite gem I got from HK Higher Knowing. It is really helping me have a great spring day!" ~Jade H. [Corporate Yoga Member]
"Thank you so much for today’s wonderful [Zoom Fascia Yoga]  class. All day I’ve struggled with hip pain, an inner thigh stiffness & sciatic issues. We are getting ready for a trip & my hips & back have absorbed all of my anxiety. Today’s class was so therapeutic, informative & also relaxing. I feel like a different person. Thank you so much. Can’t wait to enjoy the replay." ~Ann K.
"Thanks so much for sending the fascia yoga replay. Between driving and working in new environments, I started to pick up tension in familiar musculo/skeletal spots. This practice helped me tune into head, shoulders, hips and (down into knees) for me - allowing me to release tension." ~Jen W.
"Erin, Thank you for your generosity!  This series [Manifestation Mindset Series] has been "mind-blowing", powerful, energetic, mindful and very enlightening. I really want to incorporate all that I have learned, in a way that I can use it in my daily practice as well as remember. The opportunity to re-watch each session is FANTASTIC!" ~Anne G.
"Erin is so kind, personable and knowledgeable. I loved how she taught about Pelvic health in such a holistic way. Teaching us how to release tension and listen inward. I felt in-connection with my true essence and grounded in my body after following her lead in this workshop. I was excited to take what I learned during her pelvic workshop into my classes - especially the practice of moving our hips in circles and grounding down into our feet. I've also incorporated sharing her knowledge of how the diaphragm and its level of durability directly impacts our pelvic floor. Thank you Erin!"~Kacee S. [Yoga for Pelvic Health, CEUs for Yoga Teachers]
"I recently participated in Erin's 4-week Meditation masterclass and can now say that I know how to meditate well! After 7 years of listening to guided meditations and not knowing how to progress, Erin equipped me with the tools to incorporate meditation into my daily routine without the aid of audio prompts. I not only know how to center, breathe, focus and meditate when sitting quietly, but I am able to use these same mindfulness practices while going about life - cooking dinner, in the car, walking, waiting rooms etc. 
Erin is a master at what she does - yoga, meditation, energy work - and I continue to benefit weekly from her instruction in each. My gratitude for Erin and HK is hard to express. She has brought light and learning and health into my life and I look forward to how we will grow together from here." ~Megan M.

Client referring to HK Community Classes Mental Clarity + Yoga

"That class was exactly what I needed during some weeks where I have harbored and provided a safe space for worry and doubt.  I know that I have been practicing with you for a long time, and that I have a lot of tools in my mental health toolbox from our past sessions, but something about spending a half hour deliberately reframing (along with your amazing cues) did wonders for me this morning!

Thank you for giving me the chance to schedule self dates during your classes and for helping me keep perspective and invite emotions to flow through myself without harboring those emotions.  I ALWAYS walk away from a session with you feeling refreshed and more like myself!" ~Claire G.

"Thanks so much for the fascia yoga replay. It was a great reminder of how fascia practice helps me enjoy the present and stay out of anxiety (too much in the future) state." ~ Jen W.

"Your yoga classes have been a bright spot for me during this quarantine." ~ Valerie B.

Fascia Yoga - Spinal Release + Wild Thing with Yoga Nidra On-Demand

"Loved this replay for tonight. I had a strange mixture of tension and old flare ups from traveling home. So this practice was great for unwinding. Thank you. 
~J. Weiler

"Your virtual yoga practices have been the high point of my week.  I consistently look forward to the safe and calm space you create.  I hope that you know you are true gift.  I am so grateful to have found you!  I've been practicing yoga for years with reasonable regulatory using online workshops and classes.  I've always been nervous to take classes with an actual instructor because I truly thought I would be called out out for may lack of flexibility.  Practicing with you has been an absolute blessing in terms of helping me become more mindful about my body.  I've also noticed some improvements in my musculoskeletal and nervous system that I thought were a coincidence at first; the longer I work with you, the more pronounced they become, and the more confident I am. Thank you."  ~ Claire G.

My husband and I had the opportunity to experience Yoga Nidra in the Salt Cave at The Orchard, unbelievable! I felt like I was transported into the arms of the Universe. Listening to her voice guide us was soothing and filled with love. I highly recommend Erin Doty if you want to feel all anxiety, worry, or pain melt away.  An experience I will never forget." ~ Helen G.

"Loved this (fascia yoga) replay for tonight. I had a strange mixture of tension and old flare ups from traveling. So this practice was great for unwinding. Thank you" ~J. Weiler

"I love the audio chakra meditation! Was so excited to see it offered in that format."   ~ Haley D.

"Yoga is not just for the body, but more importantly for the mind and soul.  Erin taught me that, starting before she left Virginia several years ago, and since then through monthly online Zoom sessions.  She has cheered me on, helping me learn to acknowledge how I am feeling, and teaching me skills to deal with those feelings.  When I recently returned to on-site work at the university library where I am employed, I had mini panic attacks. I felt could not control my personal environment like I have the past few months working from home (due to the pandemic).  I use the skills Erin taught me, such as using body movement and taking deep full breaths, to ground myself to deal with the panic.  While working with Erin to practice yoga does not change the world around me it does help me deal with that world and face it--mask on! " ~Mary S.

"Our AC died, and my life-long natural impulse would have been to go into paroxysms of worry, suffering, and doubt, and I could feel that impulse coming on.  But I was able to tell myself that there was nothing I could do about it until Monday morning and to have faith that everything would work out.  I was so glad I had just had the yoga nidra session online with you to remind me to let it go until I could take positive action.  It was a huge help, and thank you for your great leadership." ~ Peggy S.

"Thank you for the beautiful yoga nidra experience.  I thought I was walking into maybe a slow flow yoga or something.  Instead, I got an amazing and unique gift from the universe." ~ Conrad S.

"I really enjoy practicing yoga online with you, and I’m looking forward to my next 5 classes." ~ Claire G.

"Thank you so much for all your help getting me started on my new journey to a better me!" ~ Lisa B.

"HK ROCKS!" ~ Ryan S.
"Hi Erin, Just wanted to say again how great a teacher you are and thank you for a great yoga class!" ~ Katie S.
"I had been thinking about doing yoga for a while. Erin's studio was right near my job, so on a lunch break one day, I decided to stop by and give it a try. As a beginner, I was very hesitant, there was no reason for me to be concerned though. Erin makes it very easy for beginners and people with varying physical abilities and knowledge to have a great yoga session. She always keeps the classes interesting, challenging, and varied. Although I'm very sad that I moved away and had to find a new yoga studio, the love for yoga that Erin helped me develop will follow me everywhere." ~ Nikki S.
"I had the honor of leading a QOYA class tonight at this divine studio. Erin is so welcoming and authentic. Her space is filled with crystals, energy and love. If you are in or around Blacksburg, because she is such a pleasure to meet and connect with, that its worth the drive from Roanoke. Please check out this website and see which date and event resonates with you. Humbly thanking you for your trust and taking a chance on myself and our QOYA." ~ Sherri B.
