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.

I have been a participant of their yoga classes and they have been life changing. Having a place like heal one world in our neighborhood is surprising but very needed and welcomed. The teachers are so wonderful and inclusive. I was a complete beginner and now I feel comfortable and like a real yogi. Teachers Camilla, Adam and Leticia I have all taken and their classes have been great and supportive for all the students. I highly recommend Heal One World to donors, volunteers and participants.

HOW is a great organization that works to bring wellness and awareness to the surrounding community. I think people should be exposed to all modalities of healing and HOW does exactly that! Keep up the great work!

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 aims their focus on making sure they succeed at their goals and that is keeping people on a healthy path, and providing the public the world of cinematic entertainment from independent filmmakers. As long as I have been with them, they have been growing with supporters.

Good work H.O.W.

I have attended the film festival and from that learned of heal one world. I have now linked heal one world to offer yoga classes at our shelter and they also work with the Venice family clinic, senior centers and youth. I am very impressed by their offerings and
ethics. I look forward to our future collaborations.

I was so impressed by the classes I had at the studio on Pico and also at the Venice family clinic. Great teachers, very patient. The instruction was easy to follow and I was given a lot of individual attention. They also have a great film festival in the Fall!

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
