Heal One World is a great place to learn about new ways of relaxation and holistic health. While volunteering, I learned quite a bit and tried various types of meditation. I also observed the great enthusiasm during yoga and zumba classes. Everyone who came to class was always very friendly and seemed to have created a community. The founder is very passionate in her work and shows interest in doing more and creating a retreat center. Although I was not aware of and did not practice any of the techniques taught here, I was still welcomed and managed to learn a lot. It is a great non-profit and more people should be aware of its great contribution to the community.

Heal one world is a great place to practice activities that nourish the soul and connect with caring, passionate and talented people ! I volunteered through the awareness film festival which, thanks to the hard work of a few courageous and motivated people helped promote films that make a difference in a beautiful and generous way ! Great work, keep it up Skye !

I serve as both a volunteer and a client at Heal One World. I have started receiving cranial sacral treatments from Skye here and already consider these to be life changing for me. I find so much admiration for Heal One World and it's role in our community and have been inspired to be present at the studio to witness the wonderful effect that the classes have. I am inspired by everything I am a part of here and look forward to participating more and more in this beautiful community.

I found Heal One World when it first opened, and watched it grow and expand to offer many services to anyone who needed them. I volunteer to help out a lot but I have experienced many of the services first hand such as yoga, Reiki healing, tai chi, Zumba, ayurvedic food demonstrations, vegan potlucks, acupuncture, the Awareness Film Festival, and many film screenings which bring attention to important world issues in need of being addressed. I absolutely love everyone who works/volunteers, and all the positive energy and love shown for all. Most importantly I have seen this non-profit organization help so many people. I highly recommend checking Heal One World out.

Heal One World is an excellent non-profit that helps many people by bringing services, fitness, fun, & knowledge to those in the public that may otherwise not have had access to it. Some of what I have experienced are the yoga classes, zumba fitness, Reiki healing classes & services, vegan potluck, awareness film documentary movie nights, talks on alternative medicine such as herbals, energy healing, and other homeopathic therapies. There is something at HOW for everyone, all to benefit your health & wellness, and anyone i have ever met here has been nothing but wonderful. I am a health care professional & I highly recommend checking out HOW!!

This was a confusing and difficult experience. The woman who runs the nonprofit was snappy and very ungrateful for her volunteers. I would not recommend this nonprofit to anyone.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This review is from Lacey-Ann Bryant who volunteered for 6 months in 2012. She was asked to stop volunteering because she did not show up or call numerous times for events including her own event, without apology and with the reason she "overslept" or "forgot". After she was asked to cease being a volunteer, she was upset and made slanderous remarks. We wish Ms. Bryant the best with her recovery from any traumas, but when you commit to serve others you need to show up. Ms. Bryant has continued to use her time with us on her resume and has given dates and tasks beyond the scope of actual commitment.

I would like to say one thing: Heal One World is a very safe environment meant for healing. I was an Intern over the summer and I had the chance to observe the yoga classes and some cranialsacral trou are treatments. First thing I noticed was that the yoga instructors definitely enjoy teaching. They cater to all levels of Yogis. They give those with more experience to try next level and beginners the chance to learn and perfect. Skye Kelly is amazing. I sometimes wonder if she is secretly Wonderwoman because she never sits down long enough to rest. Her energy and zeal for Heal One World--for people is something to be admired. She performs professional Cranialsacral treatments on donations. Her goal is to help heal. That is what Heal One World is for; it is for healing and learning how to heal. The mind, body and soul are connected and in this space you will learn how to soothe all three through many avenues. Great space. Great atmosphere. Great Organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have various forms of meditation.

Heal One World is a wonderful community space that serves people from all different backgrounds, races, socioeconomic class, etc. It provides a safe space for people, most of whom couldn't afford a to practice in a fancy Los Angeles yoga studio, to learn about yoga, meditation and other ways of healing and nurturing the body and mind.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise us more money so we could occupy a larger space.

Great involvement beyond the studio through the Awareness Festival and other volunteer opportunities such as Make A Difference Day. All the clients I encountered are always ecstatic and happy with Heal One World.

I had a wonderful experience with Heal One World. Heal One world opened my eyes to different healing methods along with a involving the Los Angeles community in different social, economic, environmental issues occurring around the country and world. Everyone who works with Heal One World is a volunteer. Everyone is passionate about working with individuals in need along with enlightening people in the community about the global community. Heal One World opens their doors to everyone. Heal One World is very accommodating and respectful and accepts anyone who walks in the doors. Heal One World has helped thousands of people and has the potential to reach out to even more. I am so inspired by Heal One World and their accomplishments. I hope to work alongside and with Heal One World again!
