The meditation was a seamless tapestry of chakra alignment, angels, essential oils, spirit guides, crystals, aura balancing, breath-work, reiki, prayer, and unconditional love. The bounds of space, time, and quantity of content, dissolved. Everything coalesced into a beautiful and effortless journey through healing realms. My deepest prayers—requests for spirit to speak to me in ways that I would recognize and understand, to remind me that I am never alone, always loved, always supported—were granted. I felt deep gratitude. If you’re in need of emotional, spiritual, or physical healing, consider love-based, energy medicine, in addition to conventional approaches to healing. It’s a profoundly beautiful and empowering experience.

Before I met Jewels, I didn’t know what it felt like to actually breathe. My breath was shallow and short. She gently walked me through the entire process to connect with my body and breath in a manner that completely relaxed me. I immediately felt it through my entire body. I am not a yogi and actually I was quite intimidated by it. But Jewels taught me simple techniques, broken down, that I can implement in my daily life… and has truly changed my life! If you are not into yoga, don’t be afraid to schedule a private session with her. She is gentle and gets it and she will get you, at whatever stage you are. Feel free to call me if you would like to hear my experience with Jewels.

As the owner of a wellness center in Manhattan, it was critical for me to have the right people in my team and Jewels is definitely one of those people. Our clients love her nurturing, yet powerful teaching methods. I see them emerge from her class, revived and refreshed with a glow on their faces. Jewels is a gem of a yoga teacher, as her name implies. I highly recommend her as a yoga instructor.

I began my yoga Practice with Jewels. I was so stiff that I could barely touch my knees. She is very patient and altered the positions to my personal level. In no time, my confidence grew, I developed a wonderful yoga and meditation practice… and I can now not only touch my knees but I can touch the floor! In addition, Jewels’ personal coaching has supported me through a highly stressful time in my life. She offers realistic ideas to work through any situation and they work wonders! I highly recommend Jewels; she is understanding, compassionate and knowledgeable.

Practicing yoga at work with Jewels has helped me bring balance into my work life both mentally and physically. I used to be super stressed with deadlines and demands but now I find myself thinking more positive while practicing my yoga breath and releasing control, something Julie taught us to do in class. Physically, I feel less muscle tension and pain around my neck, shoulders and back since practicing some of the yoga stretches I’ve learned in class during my long work day in front of the computer. Having our company provide this service to us made me realize they care about my wellbeing, elevating my job satisfaction and morale. Now I look forward to the next class and wonder what other cool moves and meditations she will teach me to calm my nerves.”

I first went to Jewel's Kundalini Yoga classes, which made me become passionate about this practice. Trusting in her skills, I then tried out her Reiki sessions and eventually did my Reiki Level 1&2 with her. I find her always very well prepared, and I very much appreciate her energetic, warm yet professional approach to whatever she does. Also her Kundalini Yoga retreat "Soul Journey" Retreat in Koh Phangan, Thailand did not come short of any expectations. She just knows her stuff, has an amazing capability of getting everyone involved and is truly committed in getting through to the needs of each participant. Feels like searching for the jewel within yourself 🙂 I am looking forward to what comes next.

"In March 2017 I spent a week in the beautiful exotic island of Koh Phangan, Thailand at Jewels Bertrand's Soul Journey Retreat. The retreat was held in a beautiful house approximately 1 mile from the ferry. You can easily explore the island on a moped/motorbike. The Vinyasa yoga classes taught by our leader Jewels made me feel very connected to myself, others and the world at large. The yoga classes really helped me to open my heart. The week was full of relaxation, fun and excellent yoga classes" I highly recommend.
