Heal One World is an amazing place that has provided me with the opportunity to practice yoga, zumba, tai chi, and pilates. Based in a community where these forms of exercise aren't readily available, I must applaud Skye Kelly for providing us with donation-based access. Everyone in the community is grateful Heal One World exists. The space where we meet is absolutely perfect and every single teacher provides quality, top-notch instruction.

The event honoring Lisa Vanderpump and James Maslow was thoughtful and fun. The vegan dinner was delicious. The panels were insightful and intimate. I really enjoyed women filmmakers panel. They talked a wide range of topics from mindfulness being taught in schools, health benefits of yoga, and personal experiences as filmmakers.

My time at Heal One World taught me a lot of intangible skills that I needed. These skills can go from interacting with clients to coordinating events. I enjoyed the friendliness and was moved by the passion a lot of the members of the organization had for serving the community. Although it wasn't a paid internship, Heal One World gave me an experience far more valuable than money.

It has been a great pleasure volunteering at Heal One World. Not only this experience of serving with a good cause, I felt everyone at HOW is mutually compassionate and understanding of each other and the community surrounding Los Angeles County. HOW is aware of the community health issues and have diligently addressing them by providing workshops and group activities. I would encourage anyone to take a second out of his/her time to know what HOW does for the community and benefit from their programs.

Heal One World is truly a special space. I have been a volunteer yoga teacher here for almost two years now, and you can tell that the community HOW serves is grateful to have access to wellness programs that would otherwise be too expensive or exclusive. It is located in a part of Los Angeles that is highly diverse, and it provides a place for people to move their bodies and minds, and also to be educated about their health and well-being. With their new management in place, they will be much more organized, and I'm excited for HOW's future.

As an intern for Heal One World ("HOW") the past summer, I have found this non-profit to be a wonderful organization that seeks to help and provide for those most in need. Through my work, not only have I uncovered that HOW works to provide the local underserved community with alternative treatments not usually covered by insurance and also provides an online database to help connect low-cost clinics with folks in need, but also that HOW raises awareness for a variety of issues each year through hosting the Awareness Film Festival- providing a platform for all aspiring filmmakers who wish to raise awareness about and/or provide support for issues relating to Ecological, Political, Health/Well Being and Spiritual topics

Heal One World is a truly great charity. Anybody who has a desire to better themselves, and become healthier and happier can find activities that fit their interests and needs, regardless of their level of income. All members of the community are welcome to take advantage of the great programs offered at H.O.W. There is no minimum donation and nobody is turned away due to inability to pay.

While doctors do care about preventative and complimentary medicine, it is not a priority for them because they have their hands full with more pressing issues. Communities depend on places like HOW to provide and guide patients through preventative measures they can take to improve their physical health and mental well being.

I am honored to be a part of an organization that has a positive effect on so many people's Lives.

Heal One World & it's many highly-qualified volunteer professionals in self-healing modalities has always responded o my requests for assistance! They always far exceed expectations in a variety of ways.

I work as a coordinator of Let's Move! West LA, a local project of First Lady Michelle Obama's National effort to '...eliminate childhood obesity within the current generation...'. We are structured collaborative consortium of local health & wellness organizations & activists seeking to provide access to a broad range of health & wellness direct services to family groups in community-based settings.

In this regard Heal One World leads the over 20 organizational member/supporters that are aligned with my Let's Move! west LA projects.

My primary role as coordinator is responding to frequent requests by a neighborhood school, parks directors, teacher training facilitator to supply qualified resource leaders for participation in upcoming events.

Heal One World responds consistently to events with neighborhood councils; churches; schools; child care programs or school Health Fairs more than any other participating Let's Move! WLA member organization.

I am eternally in gratitude for this loyalty shown Mrs. Obama's Let's Move! effort for improved health outcomes here in Los Angeles. Additionally I marvel at the professionalism displayed by their volunteers when assigned to projects that may not have clearly defined roles.

The Heal One World methodology (since 2009), is hallmarked by it's capacity to be flexibly adaptable in it's delivery of services. In low-limited income areas that possess the greatest need for their menu of 'self-help healing' modalities heal One World again is a leader in Los Angeles.

I'm not certain how Let's Move! West LA could function at current levels without a skilled, experienced organization such as Heal One World to work with on such a regular basis.

Thank You, Henry E Hall, Volunteer/Event Coordinator, Let's Move! West LA

I love taking part in community events too, like a clean up we did on Pico Blvd. I have tried the meditation and yoga classes and hope to try tai chi too.

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.

H.O.W!
How do we live a long healthy life? Having H.O.W. (Heal One World) has changed my own life for the better and forever and I've only been participating for a year and a half or so here. Heal One World, means heal my own world to me, along with accepting everyone else has just this world. So I want to get through this world feeling I tried to be as healthy which makes me happy as possible and if this was the major focus of more of the majority it would change this world. Healthy is a broad term I use to encompass the body along with the soul and mind. Healing yourself is easy b/c HOW nurtures and makes it a lifestyle.
Taking the yoga classes regularly is something I have never been able to do before HOW. I had taken them here and there as electives in high school and college making me love yoga. I lack discipline, yoga teaches discipline. Coming to practice gives you energy not takes, so I hope after some time of staying dedicated to classes that HOW has always offered on a schedule that is always there for me, I will be able to keep my own schedule better, live simpler, take less risk and love.
The instructors donate their time to lead the classes, so I really feel good about giving to HOW. The instructors are also there to spread awareness and share their healing tools. When I arrive it's always welcomed and I feel I am with friends, opportunity to be with other people striving to be better, teachers and students, HOW fits my needs by connecting kindred spirits. I love the feeling in a class at HOW when I think of the crazy world of LA outside around us and how they don't know right here there is a small group of people that don't care about that right now, we are in our own bodies, our own worlds and relaxing while millions are stressing. Good energy attracting good energy.
I thank the friend often that was a yoga instructor in my path that told me I could come to another class she leads at HOW, Heal One World is a gem I couldn't believe I came across.

The fact that such an organization even exists is phenomenal. It basically amounts to a public service, where an non-profit is actually providing the community with ways to heal their own body.
I've had great experiences with the cranial work done by Skye. She has a gentle touch, and her funny insights help alleviate tension.
Some of the more Eastern practices are a little out of my personal interests, but the teachers all seem to be really chill people, and hell, I'll try something new.

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.

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.
