Inner Compass Virtual Retreat
A 1/2 day virtual retreat for you to step away from the fray and find your way back to center.
There’s no denying that many of us have lost our sense of center during this time of unknowns.
When we’re centered and calm we can tap into our internal guidance system to help lead the way towards clearer and healthier choices in our lives, relationships, work and beyond.
With this in mind, we’re delighted to invite you to step away from the fray and join us for our ½ day retreat called:
Inner Compass: A Virtual Journey Back to Your Center
On this day we’ll focus on working with the energies of the West and the relationship this direction has with the element of water. Water teaches us how to let go and go with the flow. During our time together we will focus on techniques to help you embrace change and learn how to adapt to these interesting times.

Heather began her professional life as a dancer after graduating with honors from Columbia College Chicago in 2000. Her performing credits include Thodos Dance Chicago, Estradanza, and the privilege of working with Van Collins, David Dorfman, Colleen Halloran, Jon Leher, Altin Naska and Amy Wilkinson. She taught throughout the Northwest suburbs for over 15 years and was a guest artist for several District 214 high schools, as well as, at the Chicago National Association of Dance Masters conventions.
Throughout her career, she experienced several dance related injuries that left her unable to perform. As a result, she decided to learn about healing by expanding her knowledge of human anatomy and attended the New School for Massage; Bodywork and Healing in Chicago, IL in 2004. Her experience in massage therapy school changed her life, and as a result she chose to dedicate her career to the service of helping others heal.
Now with over 15 years of massage therapy experience and over two decades of professional dance and movement education experience, she brings forth an intuitive blend of bodywork modalities to tailor each session to meet her clients’ individual needs. She primarily draws from Myofascial Release as taught by John Barnes, Craniosacral Therapy, Reiki and Reflexology.
Staying well connected with the performing arts world, many of Heather’s clients are world renowned dancers, musicians, actors and circus performers. She also works with a number of physicians, nurses, and office workers; many who are experiencing chronic pain, neck and shoulder injuries, headaches, low back pain, plantar fasciitis and TMJ Dysfunction.
Outside of the treatment room, Heather is an active educator in the Chicagoland area. Some of her recent teaching experience includes The School of The Art Institute Chicago and The New School For Massage. Her latest venture is completing her 200 hour yoga teacher training with the Chicago Yoga Center and is looking forward to sharing her love of yoga with others come fall 2020.
It lights Heather up inside to bring to you a compassionate, listening ear to each session and she enjoys helping you empower yourself on your healing journey!
Kara took her first step into the world of body work by enrolling in a clinical massage program in 2007. She was fascinated by all that she learned about the physical body and graduated Valedictorian of her class. In 2009, she went back to school and completed an advanced massage program that specialized in alternative forms of therapy.
There, she was introduced to the John F. Barnes’ approach to Myofascial Release. This technique asked its practitioners to see each person in totality. Kara recognized that attention to consciousness and emotion were missing from her practice, and this dramatic shift in focus has since sculpted every part of her life.
Since then, she’s been able to utilize Myofascial Release in a chiropractic office, a PT clinic and a handful of Chicago’s top spas. She’s worked with MVP’s of professional athletic teams, fortune 500 CEO’s, actors, doctors, lawyers, moms, dads, and friends. Her clients have ranged from infant to elderly and together they’ve worked through countless mental, emotional and physical challenges.
From there, the doors kept opening. Kara has taken to the big stage, to share feelings and experiences with esteemed peers and exemplary leaders in her field. She’s been able to use her dedication to fascia to successfully teach individuals and groups how to better care for their bodies. Over time her work has evolved and expanded to include new venues for learning and great opportunities to meet and partner with the best in science, research and spirituality. Her passion is in educating and sharing empowering experiences with others.
Kara is an artist, a storyteller, and a friend. She is the owner and founder of Myofascial Evolution and Black Feather Revival.
