Yolanda Pritam Hari is a Quantum Evolutionary ™ Healer whose work activates full human potential.

A Master Bodyworker, Structural Yoga Therapist, and lifelong Yogini, Yolanda’s body-centered approach delivers results. Back when Quiet Mind opened in 1988, Yolanda specialized in chronic pain and injury rehabilitation. Through years of training and internship in Advanced CranioSacral, NeuroMuscular, and Structural Yoga Therapies, she expanded her gift for releasing stored traumas from the body, nerve tissue, and  brain. Improved alignment has many dimensions besides neuromuscular reeducation. Conscious realignment brings dramatic physical and emotional shifts.

Also a trained herbalist, Yolanda makes tissue-healing formulas for her clients and friends, and is a steady voice for regeneration (over degeneration!) through solely natural means. Her Herbal Self-Care and Medicine-Making classes have been well received.

headshotYolanda started practicing Yoga spontaneously as a child, and has been committed to teaching for most of her life. Yolanda was in her 20’s when she met her first two living teachers, completed 5 long years of Iyengar Yoga Teacher Certification, and began to study Neuromuscular Therapy, Rolfing, and the structural anatomy of chronic pain. She was among the first to be Nationally Certified in Bodywork & Therapeutic Massage, and through her uniquely integrated approach, Quiet Mind grew its reputation as the best bodywork clinic for pain. Researching why people don’t heal led her to the Upledger Foundation in the 90’s, where for 15 years she studied CranioSacral and Brain-Lymph Therapies. There, Yolanda served as teaching assistant and support therapist at client-centered intensives, and found a new passion working directly with the nervous system and the brain. In a flash of insight during this time, she was struck by the stunning overlap of the CranioSacral system, Nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and Chakra system… and the pure sacredness of touch sensitized to the silent waves of living, breathing fluids within the brain and spine.

Yolanda’s immense sensitivity draws from four decades of restoring human structure and movement. Her unparalleled understanding of trauma comes from 25 years of hands-on training with radical doctors and visionary osteopaths who teach how to correct subtle flows and blockages though the fascial and neural networks of the body’s inner web. Her faith, tenacity, and conviction stem from self-healing a serious injury that left her frequently disabled and in agony for 25 years.

Yolanda’s recipe is simple, yet the commitment is deep.

  • Don’t struggle alone. Get the support you need to awaken your life force and self-healing power.
  • There is no single magic bullet.
  • Healing is not mechanical; it’s multi-dimensional!
  • Healing through life’s pains and traumas takes energy, patience and time. You’ll do much better working with a skilled and gentle guide who knows the path.

Practice excellent self-care; nourish and balance your body to meet the stress of life. Defy the lies that limit you. Shift your focus to regeneration and radiant health.
Give Nature time to do the rest.
