Anjali Hasija is a National Board Certified, Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist. She graduated from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Manhattan with a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine in 1998, and is currently studying for her Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Having envisioned a Holistic Studio in the heart of NYC when she was 20 yrs old, Anjali has been dedicated to her private practice in Manhattan for over 15 years. She is now excited to bring healing energy to the worldwide community with Satori’s Sacred Studio.
Through extensive world travels and explorations of traditional healing methods, including those of India, the sacred mountains of Peru, the Amazon, and the rainforest of Belize, Anjali became interested in the ways of the medicine men and women of those regions. Her proficiency in this art is rooted in the ancient techniques practiced by many indigenous cultures of the world, and specifically, Peruvian, Ecuadorian, and Mayan shamanism. Anjali graduated from the Healing the Light Body school in 2004, under the guidance of Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D, shaman, medical anthropologist, and author of over 15 books including “Shaman, Healer, Sage.” She has also trained with Itzhak Beery, learning Ecuadorian shamanism and the art of the Andean Limpia (energy cleansing), and with Rosita Arvigo in Belize for Mayan healing practices and plant medicine. The shamanic practices she offers her clients address working with core soul issues and releasing trauma from the energy field.
Anjali is a certified Usui and Karuna™ Reiki Master and has been practicing Reiki since 1996. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she has had extensive training in integrative healing arts over the last 25 years. She completed her Reiki training with the late Joyce Hasija, author of “The Teaching Manual for Reiki Masters,” and the late Reinaldo Torres Ginard of the Regenesis Institute. In 2007, Anjali trained in Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT) with Spiritual Response Association (SRA) consultant Susan Carollo, adding another level of healing to her extensive practice. She most recently completed training in Theta Healing® with Auristela Guardia.
Anjali has spent considerable time volunteering her services, such as assisting FEMA after 9/11, giving acupuncture to the rescue workers, and in Guatemala, helping to set up community clinics by Lake Atitlan and introducing the indigenous people of these regions to acupuncture and Reiki.
In 2004, Anjali opened Satori on a quiet tree-lined Upper East Side street, with the intention of creating a world away from the hustle and bustle of the vibrant New York City life her clients were living. Within a short period of time, Satori has grown and Anjali has become known for her unique approach, compassionate presence, and effective, powerfully transformative sessions. Now in the East Village, she is the go-to holistic therapist, not only for her complete roster of wellness and beauty oriented acupuncture treatments, but also for her effective and knowledgeable practice of Chinese herbs, fertility treatments, and beautiful rituals of energy healing

Leslie Padgett read Linda Goodman’s gazillion-times-best-selling astrology book Star Signs in 1999 and got inspired. After many years of self-study, Leslie began training in NYC under acclaimed astrologer Anne Ortelee. In 2015, Leslie began reading professionally, fully connecting with her clients. She says she likes to “click in” to the client’s chart and tell a story. She’s also a publishing executive, working in the industry for more than 20 years. She’s not a psychic; she’ll drop an f-bomb during your reading; and she loves the planets.
Elizabeth Ebaugh has studied meditation and psychology at The Washington Center for Consciousness Studies for over 20 years. She has also been a student of several teachers in the Siddha and Tibetan Buddhist lineages. She is a continual student of Kashmir Shaivism and Tibetan Buddhism as well as other esoteric philosophies that have influenced her life and work.
A deep trust in the healing process and the resiliency of the human spirit and body has shaped Elizabeth’s life and practice. At a very early age, she knew she wanted to be a psychotherapist and facilitate people in their experience of freedom from the physical, emotional, and spiritual wounds that prevent them from living life fully. Today, with 30 years of experience in private practice she sees herself as a practiced healer, meditation teacher, and psychotherapist.
Elizabeth has a masters degree in Social Work; her post-masters studies include Marriage and Family Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Jungian Archetypal Therapy, Imago Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Reconnection, Thought Field Therapy, EMDR, Brainspotting, and Family Constellations. Her focus in all that she offers is to expand awareness of self, community, and the universal field of energy for all who come into her practice space. She does this with a wide array of brain and experientially based tools as her belief is ’one size does not fit all.’
Elizabeth is licensed as a clinical social worker in the state of Maryland and the District of Columbia. Currently, she is in private practice at The Center for Family Well-Being in Washington, DC. Elizabeth continues to teach meditation and chanting as well as offering coaching and therapy for individuals, couples, and groups.
Gina is an uplifter to the very core of her being! A natural-born cheerleader, coach, and teacher – she wants everybody to experience a life of ease, abundance, happiness, and joy – because it IS possible, no matter where you’re starting from today!
Gina is a long-time corporate trainer and personal development enthusiast who has always been driven to find self-actualization techniques that work consistently – for the purpose of improving her success and the success of others.
Over the last two decades, Gina’s drive for personal growth and achievement has led her to read, listen to, and study thousands of hours worth of material from the likes of Abraham-Hicks, Tony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Bob Proctor, Richard Bandler, Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, Paul Selig, Sara Landon, Paulo Coelho, and more. She’s attended multiple self-development courses through Landmark Worldwide, as well as Tony Robbins’ Unleash the Power Within and Date with Destiny seminars. (In fact, if you look fast enough you can see a glimpse of her in the Tony Robbins documentary “I Am Not Your Guru,” now on Netflix)
That continual thirst for knowledge and deep desire to find the answers to life eventually led her to the discovery of NLP and hypnosis as the powerful life-changing tools she’d been looking for.
Upon learning NLP she realized, in connecting the dots between NLP and what she already knew about the Law of Attraction, that she just discovered the secret to “The Secret”. The significance of this discovery, and the amazing outcomes she’s been able to achieve for herself and others has been nothing short of miraculous.
If you’re familiar with the teachings of Abraham-Hicks then you know that releasing resistance and getting into emotional alignment with your goal is literally the “keys to the kingdom” to getting what you want. It was immediately obvious to Gina that NLP-based processes helps people release resistance faster and more fully than any other method. As well as get them into that place of emotional alignment so that what they want can manifest with more ease than ever before.
Gina is a Licensed Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming® through the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™ and a Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist with the State of Washington. She is also a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists.
