Antoinette DiMascio, PhD hails as one of the first licensed professionals in the U.S. to practice as an integrated beauty and wellness professional. Her career of more than 25 years includes experience in organic cosmetology and aesthetics, energy medicine, Western herbalism, yoga, Ayurveda, spiritual ministry, and intuitive sessions.

As a perpetual learner, she follows in the work of the great Catholic Saint Hildegard of Bingen. She uses a mixed modality of wellness tools proven over millennia to not only enhance the appearance, but increase the vitality and wellness of mind, body, and spirit. Having lived through many personal tragedies including the death of her daughter Esme at birth in 2010, she believes that everyone can not only overcome, but thrive after trials in life by, “accepting the gift of the nectar of suffering.” Her dharma (purpose in life), is to allow God to work through her as a healer in yoga, Ayurveda and other complementary therapies,  assisting others in living their dharma, alleviating chronic pain, suffering, and helping them to live a joyful and purpose driven life beyond their imagination. Her yoga classes are down to earth and are full of wisdom and compassion for all levels of practitioners. She helps her students not only “do yoga” but to truly live yoga in all aspects of their life! She focuses on trauma, dharma in business, yoga in the workplace, and full-body integrative classes.

Antoinette has trained in the Classical Hatha Sri Vidya yogic tradition, and her classes incorporate Kundalini, Bhakti and Ashtanga postures and practices, as well as mantra, meditation, pranayama, and philosophy. Antoinette is available for workshops and private wellness sessions for Ayurveda and herbs, yoga, energetic intuitive sessions, and organic beauty consulting for hair and skin care.
