'Through healing ourselves we heal the world!'
WHAT/WHO WE ARE: "Jessica Om" Stiehm & Aaron "Ananda" Erickson, founders & co-creators of Jessica-Aaron-Inspired Healing Arts are enjoyers of life, practitioners & educators of vedic knowledge- (YOGA & the HEALING ARTS, specialized in thai-yoga bodywork & meditation,) sacred music musicians, acro-yogis, adventure seekers, traveling teachers, light bearers, and celebrators of LOVE & and this amazing life! Offering ongoing yoga classes at various locations in S. FL- including donation based community classes on Delray beach, and a bi-monthly satsang/meditation meet-up. JAI also travels & facilitates vedic thai-yoga bodywork trainings & workshops, performs live sacred music for various events and venues, and holds a variety of other workshops, retreats, & conscious community events around the country and world!
SOME WORDS FROM JESSICA & AARON:
JAI is a Vedic "greeting" meaning "Victory, Celebration, Honor & Respect, Divine acknowledgement, Supreme Freedom, Humble Gratitude, Well Wishes, and Dignity & Integrity," among other descriptions that encompass the more appropriately named, eternal expression which naturally directs Grace and Glory towards another! But of course it also stands for: Jessica, Aaron, Inspired! Which makes up the foundation of what J.H.A. is about.
We come together, not only in a devoted, loving relationship, but as dynamic partners in a "company" that promotes the depth of true "healing."
How can we contribute to Heaven on Earth?
"Through healing ourselves we heal the world" is what we believe.
What are we healing?
The gap of separation... Re-membering our connection with the entire Universe...
We both have an eclectic personal practice & teaching style combining different disciplines of various yoga practices, qi-gong & tai chi, martial arts, dance, various meditation practices (yogic; taoist) mantra/chanting & sound healing, functional fitness training and partner acrobatics, to create and support a healthy inner and outer body, mind, and connecting with our spirit!
We value the quality of "Play" in our everyday lives, encouraging others to be able to find the joy in all they do. We also practice and teach a practice called Flying Yoga or Acro Yoga- which is a blend of dynamic partner acrobatics, suspended yoga poses supported by a partner (his/her hands/feet/or other body parts,) and "flying thai massage" while being suspended by the support of a partner. The practice develops a high level of trust, discipline, body awareness/control, and most important-FUN :) We have a community group called the Delray Acro Club that meets and plays together on select Sundays in Delray Beach. We are both also certified teachers of vedic thai-yoga massage through the Vedic Conservatory and hold trainings to teach others how to share the healing folk art with friends, loved ones, clients, and community. We feel the Vedic style "assisted yoga" massage practice is a powerful tool in remedying the growing epidemic of STRESS in our society, which is the leading cause of most dis-ease and disfunction.
WHAT ARE WE OFFERING???
We hold MANY workshops on: yoga, vedic thai-yoga bodywork/trainings, partner yoga & thai-yoga, mantra/chanting/sound healing, meditation, partner flying yoga/acro yoga, Dao Yin, Inversions & Arm Balancing, and more!) and community events & gatherings, some free and some by donation. We offer alternative options for conscious community to come together in safe & loving space and be in like-minded company, connect, and network, while enjoying some kind of fun activity or entertainment... Events and gatherings range from our already existing SUNSET YOGA ON THE BEACH on Sunday nights www.meetup.com/sunsetyogaonthebeach -to monthly guided meditations group: www.meetup.com/jaiguidedmeditations

BIOS: Aaron "Ananda Das" is a certified experienced yoga teacher, Vedic thai-yoga bodywork teacher & practitioner of the Vedic Conservatory, and a Licensed Advanced Massage Therapist for 12 years, specialized in neuromuscular, sports massage, & deep tissue work. His work focuses on postural balancing, and can incorporate functional training along with bodywork to assist in the body returning to and staying in it's natural alignment and health. Aaron considers himself a "Vedic Shaman" and intuitive healer, who can pull from his vast experience of working with the multi-dimentional aspects of the body (on an anatomical & pranic level) and use the 'healing' modalities specific for each person to bring about balance & to re-align or re-energize. Each healing session with him is different and often begins with a consultation. Aaron is also a passionate yoga practitioner and teacher, having received initiation into the Siddha Yoga path through his teacher Randy Martin, a direct initiate & disciple of Swami Muktananda. Aaron studied & practiced closely with is teacher since the age of 22 and immediately began doing deep meditation practices and introspection. For about 3 years Aaron sat and received transmission and did practice with his teacher one on one for about 5 hours a day 7 days a week. Still in contact with him, Aaron has gone on to study with other teachers and continues to study Vedic knowledge from as many different cultures and inspiring beings as possible. He is now sharing his knowledge and experience through his own teachings.
Jessica Om (Stiehm) "Gayatri Devi" is a certified Yoga Teacher, Vedic Thai-Yoga Bodywork Teacher & Practitioner of the Vedic Conservatory, Functional fitness trainer and reiki practitioner. She is also known for her voice as a Mantra/Kirtan Artist. Jessica had influences of meditation and inquiry into Self since she was a child. She remembers meditating with her father in the morning at the early age of 3. She also found herself doing different meditation & yoga asana practices as a young girl, that she was unfamiliar with at the time. Jessica 're-discovered' yoga at the age of 21 and almost immediately went into a deeper study to become a teacher. She continues to learn and study different healing arts and modalities and considers herself a student of life. She has always had a passion for music and has been singing and performing since was 5. It was only natural after discovering the power of sound healing and mantra, for her to incorporate her singing, and playing various instruments, including her harmonium, for her classes and conscious community various events.
