More than 20 Years’ Healing Experience
The founder and head instructor of Taireiki Yoga Center, Ivor Edmonds, earned a Bachelors Degree in Religion from Oberlin College, and a M.A. in Applied Healing Arts from the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly the Tai Sophia institute). He is an E-RYT 200 YACEP certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor, a Level II Usui Reiki Healer, and a Master of Gendai Reiki Ho. He is a certified Qi Gong and Kemetic meditation Instructor and has been a healing arts professional for twenty years.
Ivor’s healing philosophy is: “The natural state of human beings is Healed, Whole, and Complete, in harmony with Nature. The process of healing is simply to return us to this state and help us remember who we are. Healing is always possible.”
Ivor has extensive experience with both private one-on-one sessions and public classes and has taught seminars and corporate wellness programs at Boston Public Schools, Oberlin College, Harvard Divinity School’s Reiki Association (2006), St. Francis House, Action for Boston Community Development, and Boston Medical Center. He has created and implemented many programs integrating Traditional Healing Methods in modern contexts including an ongoing Yoga program for the MIT Track/ Field and Cross Country Teams.
As a result of this journey he has identified the overwhelming need to bring alternative healing modalities into impoverished communities and to victims of violent crimes. In his private practice he routinely treats patients who suffer from high levels of stress, cancer, arthritis, asthma, chronic diseases, obesity, psychological disorders and survivors of domestic violence. Edmonds has also brought his expertise in Traditional Healing to bear in work with gangs, senior citizens, and homeless people. He is committed to service in his community and to offering alternative healing as a practical means to end stress, treat illness, speed convalescence and recover a healthy balanced life.
In his spare time Ivor enjoys being with his family, playing chess, camping, live music, dancing, volunteering, and cooking.
