“There is in each of us a special song to be sung. None of us is more important, or less so, than any other. Our simple duty is to find our unique song deep within us, and to sing it to perfection. That perfection will come only when we have learned to sing our own soul-song to God, offering back to Him the inspiration of His love.”

Mo = Movements, Ti = TaiChi-like, YoGa = Yoga, Chi = Life Force Energy
Syena is the creator of MoTiYoGaChi – also know as Moti -- a very Fun DVD combining tribal moves, yoga, and Tai Chi-like movements.
Blended and put together so that there is a fluid flow, Moti removes energy blocks, so we feel energized, yet calm and peace filled.
Moti is easy to modify, so you can make it as gentle or challenging, and the music is wonderful.
A Fitness Instructor since 1971, Syena has been certified in the following areas:
- Access Bars Facilitator
- YogaFit Training Level 1
- AFAA (Aerobics Fitness Association of America) Personal Trainer
- Third Degree Reiki Master
- Exersafety Personal Trainer and Slide Instructor
- Group Fitness Instructor, AFAA
She has also taught Step Aerobics, Resist-a-ball, Dance Aerobics, Slide Aerobics, Core Sculpting, Pilates, Yoga, and more.
As a personal trainer, she understands how difficult it is for many to become balanced in their approach to fitness and wellness. Our culture obsesses about the physical body, ignoring our amazing body-mind connection. Obsessing takes us out of balance and when we’re not balanced, we struggle with our weight more, self image, happiness, etc.
Syena also believes not everyone wants or should exercise as if they are training for the Olympics. What may be healthy for one is not the best approach for another. Rather, listening to our body is key. The important thing is that we like it enough to do it over and over so we can get all the health benefits for mind, body and spirit.

He depends on spiritual guidance and natural musical abilities to help others. Michael also is a healer and singer. He has created and performed on five different meditation cd's, performed numerous live music shows in several cities throughout the state and is currently collaborating on recording his solo meditation CD.
Buddhist Mantras and Songs of Healing and Compassion
Matthew Goddard sings Buddhist Mantras and songs of Healing and Compassion.
The power of this performance comes from you!
After introducing each Mantra or chorus, audiences are encouraged to chant/sing along Ancient Mantras chanted to simple modern melodies. We will be immersing ourselves in the resonance field, and cultivating our own compassionate qualities in order to share that vibration and frequency with the world. Chanting in this manner can bring deep healing to ourselves and others.
No experience necessary, all ages and skill levels can chant along!
Chakradance is a dance for the soul.
Blending free-flowing movements with particular frequencies of sound, Chakradance frees the energy in your body and opens you to a deeper experience of life.
The experience is like a waking dream – we dance up forgotten parts of ourselves, and release the memories stored in our muscles. Our aches and pains reveal their stories and our hidden fears unmask themselves.
My intention is to allow Spirit to guide me so I can guide YOU through your own healing journey.
I found Chakradance at a time in my life when I didn't know what I was going to do with my future. I asked Spirit for guidance and support, and Chakradance was presented to me in the beginning of 2014. I was just completing the first year of my Masters in Spiritual Psychology at the University of Santa Monica. Then, I found out I was pregnant. I completed my Chakradance facilitator training two weeks before I gave birth to my beautiful son, Phoenix.

With the Jazzical Contemporary Singers, Michael has sung at the White House, the National Cathedral, and other well known venues in Washington, D.C.
He is a Level II Reiki Practitioner and also works with people to balance their chakras and align their energy flow.
