My name is Connie Gaffaney.
I have always been interested in diet as a path to good health. I moved from SAD (the Standard American Diet), to being a Vegetarian over 25 years ago, to a Vegan and for the past 12 years a Raw Food Vegan.
Besides receiving Certifications in Herbology and Essential Oils, I have attended workshops with Chicago based Raw Food Chefs: Karen Calabrese of Karyn’s Raw Cafe; Kathy and Danny Living of Borrowed Earth Cafe; On-line studies with Nomi Shannon, the Raw Gourmet; Jennifer Cornbleet; Cherie Soria; and David Wolfe.
I have my Certification in the Vegan Mastery Program through the Vegetarian Health Institute.
I have been practicing Yoga for over 25 years. The more I practiced the more I wanted to know, which led to attaining Certification in Hatha Yoga.
My love of Yoga Philosophy led me to become Certified in Meditation; as well as earning a Third Degree Reiki Master certified by the Usui Shiki Ryoho School of Reiki. I have always engaged in continuing education, including Mat Pilates and Thai Massage.
