Tayonon Gbala of A Balanced You and Jason Simmons of HiFi Personal Fitness recently led a self-care workshop for Bishop Anderson House. After an all-day staff and board retreat and the successful Art of Healing benefit, we welcomed the “Pause, Relax, Restore” presentation. We learned breathing techniques, Zen shiatsu stretching and paused for meditation. Ann Ryba even enjoyed a mini-Thai massage.The entire experience was refreshing and uplifting.
We first met Tay0non when she gave chair massages at our self-care day for CORE Center Project Connect. She is a vibrant entrepreneur who is passionate about holistic meditation. Tayonon Gbala is an Illinois State licensed Massage Therapist, Thai Body worker and Zen Shiatsu practitioner in training with 14 years of grounding massage and body work experience; she defines herself as a facilitator of self-care and personal awareness.
Jason Simmons, from HiFi Fitness, worked with Tayonon to teach us stretches based on our body meridians. He is a trainer at HiFi Fitness, where the philosophy is to give the best personal trainers in the industry a state-of-the-art facility for their elite clientele.
Whether you are looking for an experienced and professional massage therapist, or a personal trainer, we highly recommend both Tayonon and Jason.
