About  Claudia D’Emilia Iafrate ~ Chandradev Kaur 

Sat Nam & Welcome!

Quickly, I realized that there was healing power in movement, breath, mantra, meditation & sound the very first time on my yoga mat. I sensed a deep knowing, an earthly resonance, that these were the primary methods that would support my healing journey. For nearly 16 years, I have practiced many styles of yoga & have deeply connected with several including Kundalini, Hatha & Restorative.

Over the years, I pursued teacher training in Hatha & Kundalini Yoga. Now, I share them with you! Guiding you through a Hatha practice, you’ll experience an eclectic combination of self-awareness techniques including traditional & restorative postures with meditations emphasizing heart-centered compassion for your Self.  With Kundalini, I share a profound technology that awakens the energy of our consciousness, illuminates our self-imposed boundaries in order to grow & expand our awareness & compassion. It prods us to cultivate a strong intuitive mind & offers skills to cope successfully with the challenges of our times and in our lives. Then, I weave in the mystical, healing vibrations of Gong which helps to restore our genuine state of balance & well-being.

Commonly referred as the “Yoga of Awareness”, Kundalini Yoga is a dynamic form of yoga where emphasis is placed on the breath combined with movements of the body, meditation & sounds through mantra (repetitions of sacred sounds). This practice assists you in accessing your true self  to bring you to a higher state of consciousness.


Translated as ha meaning “sun” & tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine facets – energetic, hot, sun – & feminine facets – responsive, cool, moon – within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance in the joining of opposites. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength & flexibility. We also learn to balance our effort & surrender in each pose.

Powerful tools for self-transformation, both of my kundalini & hatha yoga practices have helped me to bring attention & awareness to my breath & body, which has helped me to both acknowledge & release the “passing shows” in my mind & has guided me to become present in each & every moment of my awakened life.


Known as one of human’s oldest therapeutic instrument, the Gong is an ancient tool for healing & transformation. Commonly used in yoga, vibrational therapy & sound meditation, the Gong is an ideal facilitator for stress reduction, stimulation of the glandular system & used as a means to release emotional blockages. The Gong releases tension & impasses in the body & stimulates the nervous & circulatory systems as well. It increases prana, our life force. It helps to quiet the mind so we can come into our neutral, meditative mind.

Due to its nature, the Gong resonates all cells of the body simultaneously in a powerful & effective way. The goal in all healing, meditative, spiritual & transformational pursuits, is to restore the genuine state of balance & wellness.




Reiki is a safe, gentle, simple, hands-on healing modality. It is amazingly effective on many kinds of physical & emotional issues & illnesses. In the world we live in we often find ourselves over-worked, over-tired & over- stressed which puts us off balance. When this happens we begin to diminish our energies & when we lose enough of our life force energy we can become ill.

Reiki replenishes life force energy, helping us remain balanced & stress-free. Research has shown that stress is the number one factor to ill health, or disease in our lives, & as the saying goes; “Dis-ease causes disease”. This life force heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field,  charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in & around the physical body where negative thoughts & feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart & fall away. In doing so, Reiki clears, straightens & heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy & natural way.

Some benefits of Reiki are…

  • Revitalizes body, mind & soul ~ Balances the organs & glands & their bodily functions
  • Re-establishes spiritual equilibrium & mental well-being ~ Promotes creativity
  • Balance the body’s energies ~ Treats symptoms & causes of illnesses
  • Unlocks blocked energy & promotes a state of total relaxation ~ Relieves pain
  • Cleanses the body of toxins ~ Strengthens the immune system
  • Enhances meditation & personal awareness ~ Strengthens intuition

*If a client has a health condition & wants to be treated with Reiki, it is recommended that they do so under the supervision of an enlightened medical doctor or other health care professional. Reiki will improve the results of all medical treatments, acting to reduce negative side effects, shorten healing time, reduce or eliminate pain, reduce stress & help create optimism. Many have reported miraculous results.
