Bridge Healing Arts Center Connects Natural Healers


o meet the growing demand for alterna- tive, natural therapies,

top healing practitioners have created the fi rst holistic health center in Connecticut. The new Bridge Healing Arts Center (BHAC) located at 304 Main Street in Farming- ton brings together special- ists such as naturopaths,

energy healers, acupuncturists, yoga instructors, massage thera- pists, nutritionists and others under one roof.

BHAC Center Director Vera Halina, who is also a Yogi and energy healer, notes the centralized location, size and beautiful serene setting are ideal for a holistic health center. In addition to Halina, other practitioners at the BHAC are Cindi Whittington Cafasso, Shaman RN; Silvana Rosini, Holistic Coach; Debbie Grove, Fam- ily & Children's Counselor; Faith Prelli, Doctor of Psychotherapy; Barb Danek Porlides, Refl exologist and Jeanne Tennis, owner of the Macrobiotic chef service The Key to Balance, specializing in seasonal, plant-based cuisine.

The BHAC offers a full calendar and variety of topics and activi- ties. The center has designated each day of the week with an easy to remember theme:

• Meditation Mondays: Vinyasa Flow Gentle Yoga combined with Intergenerational Meditation can remove stress and replace it with a dose of inner peace.

• Tea Tasting Tuesdays: Find your inner focus with unique, inspir- ing and distinctly different Chinese Herb Tea tasting themes each week. Combined with Kundalini Yoga to utilize intense breath work for a complete body overhaul from the inside out.

• Women’s Wellness Wednesdays: Hang up the Super Woman Cape and take time for self-care! Take advantage of in-house child care and take a yoga class.

• Trek Through Thursdays: Balance your Chakra and your belly with this unique combination of yoga and healthy eating. • Future Focus Fridays: In addition to yoga classes, there are monthly themed make-and-take classes from everything from bath bombs, to natural insect repellents to Chakra jewelry.

The center has created a standard fee structure for all yoga and meditation classes: 1st class FREE, then $15 for each subsequent class or $200 for a monthly Fast Pass of unlimited classes. Each complimentary fi rst class includes a 15-minute sauna or foot de- toxifi cation treatment.
