With more then 25 years of experience, I have a full-time Healing Arts Practice in Fort Collins, Colorado, providing Holy Fire® Reiki Energy Balancing, Massage and Bodywork, Intuitive Guidance, Soul Astrology, and a variety of classes, trainings, workshops and yearly retreats to support your sacred wellness journey on all levels, whether you see me in-person, or with online sessions.
I am the founder of SACRED WELLNESS ARTS.
My search for deeper meaning and profound answers to physical, emotional and spiritual wellness got me started while still living in Berlin, Germany (where I grew up) with my theatre training and the fascinating movement and character studies involved.
After moving to California in the early 90’s, I discovered the body-mind connection through my spiritual community, developing a steady Yoga Practice, studying Massage and Bodywork, reading Eastern Philosophy, and attending Satsangs & Meditations in different Buddhist Centers.
I realized that healing, inner peace and growth comes with practicing awareness, listening to your busy mind and life, exploring your willingness to transform your habitual thinking and therefore shifting your energetic structure. Connecting to the divine energies, I became aware that there is no separating of body, mind and soul for healing to occur!
My sacred journey as a forever learner:
- Nurturing Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork, Shiatsu and Energy Healing in Los Angeles, Santa Fe and Boulder.
- Reiki Trainings and Usui Holy Fire® Reiki Master Teacher Certificate in 2021 with Sarina Baptista in Loveland at the Psychic Center of Colorado.
- Esoteric Astrology, Psychology & Ancient Wisdom Program in Boulder with Joy Om from Mind Body Neurofeedback and Spirit Fire Retreat Center.
- Yoga Teacher Training - RYT-200 - and Meditation Teacher Training at Om Ananda Yoga Studio in Fort Collins, Colorado.
- Assisting Workshops and Trainings as a way of enrichment.
Lots of time has been spent reading, studying, retreating and engaging in Buddhist and Yogic Philosophy, Ancient Wisdom Teachings, Eastern and Western Health and Wellness Concepts and nurturing an open heart. I also worked many years in the health food industry giving me a broad knowledge in fundamental nutrition, supplements and herbs.
My constant quest for information and learning gives me a unique set of skills from which I draw intuitively and passionately. Curiosity deeply enriches my practice. Recent studies took me into Trauma Recovery Yoga, and the Trauma Tapping Technique TTT, derived from the Emotional Freedom Technique EFT, exploring a tool for PTSD, Stress Relief and Emotional Trauma Recovery
Through collaboration with other therapists and teachers I love to create my own wellness community and look forward to many more journeys with fellow earth travelers.
My passion is helping people, to teach, inspire, and guide them so they can find deep healing, vitality and inner awakening. Sessions and teaching style flow between intuition and practicality, magic and compassionate listening, grace and inspiration. I offer sound and enlightening information with a kind spirit. I love beautiful food and cooking, hiking, go to hot springs and find peace in nature, and a hot cup of tea wherever I am. And my biggest mentor is my son! He never ceases to enlighten me.
My work: I have a full-time private practice, teach yoga & meditation, hold group circles, facilitate workshops and trainings. Through my esoteric and awareness trainings, I have learned to work with individuals and groups on subtle energy levels, and offer Intuitive guidance for purpose and soul exploration. The energy, warmth and lightness that came with my healing practice grew steadily and shines through all my work. Incorporating chakra balancing, intuitive insights, essential oils and the magic of cards add to my sacred healing space. I worked in retreat settings with what has become Infinite Alignment and now lead wellness retreats on my own with Yoga, Meditation, wholesome food and sacred guidance, check out my Retreats page for that.

“Claudia is without a doubt a conduit for the divine energy around us and in us.
She is truly a gift. The shifts I have experienced from her healing powers and her use of Reiki Fusion in our online sessions are unlike anything I could have imagined for myself.
If you have been called to this space, please enter with an open heart and know that amazing things await you.”
“Claudia has made a very positive impact on my life and health. I have so much gratitude for her Reiki Energy work, her massage skills and her intuitive healing powers.”
"Claudia is tapped into a well-spring of knowledge. Her intuition of spiritual being, connectedness to earth and astrological consciousness is inspiring in a world where such things are so needed."
“Working with Claudia has brought me deeper insight about my patterns, gifts, growth and body and how these are all connected. The thing that strikes me most about working with her is how incredibly present she is in our sessions. Whether she is giving a massage, going over my astrology chart or giving esoteric insights, she is fully present, fully passionate about this healing work. She has a perspective on health and spirituality that never fails to further enlighten me about myself and the world around me.“
“Integrating intentional and thoughtful movement into my day to day life has been an important part of my overall health and well-being. As a musician, it has been incredibly helpful to have Claudia guide me in purposeful, mindful movements and I’m able to incorporate our work together into my practice. The massage and movement work we do together has been so great – a ‘whole’ experience!"
“Claudia’s approach is very intuitive and holistic. She is a kind listener and is able to piece together what you tell her with what your body is saying to bring about transformative healing and change. I would highly recommend Claudia!“
“Claudia has instincts for therapeutic results… she is an extremely nurturing human being, one whose vocation is to always treat people with respect. In sum, she is the rare intelligent woman who goes towards the human side, rather than solely shooting for the diagnosis and a quick fix.“
“The Indian Summer Sacred Yoga Retreat was nothing short of fantastic! The entire weekend, Claudia was in tune with the participants and provided the perfect experience.
A very tailored experience she was able to accommodate everyone from beginners (having never done yoga) to more advanced participants (some with actual teacher training).
I was a little worried that 4 sessions in 3 days might be a bit much. It was actually the opposite. I felt great the whole weekend.
The environment Claudia created helped us to develop a lovely connection with each other that felt absolutely natural.
And then there's the food Claudia prepared...outrageously delicious and healthy!
The Ute Lodge location is a magical place, a serene ranch, tucked away in a beautiful "nature" cocoon. I guarantee that if you attend this retreat next year you will come back with nothing but gratitude in your heart! Thank you Claudia!!!”
Eating a whole foods diet is what nature gave us. Nature did not give us processed and fast foods. That is a man-made diet that is slowing destroying the planet, mama earth and the individual’s health and well-being.
I have loved to cook since I was a little girl, to this day preparing simple, adventurous and wholesome foods. Organic whenever possible, I like foods to be balanced and easy to prepare. My cooking is creative, drawing from world cultures and cuisines.
That being said, I advocate to eat the best diet one can, with as much integrity, awareness and love. The loving energy we put into our food, is the energy we see in our bodies and what we portray into our environment. For example, if you eat a beautiful raw food or farm-fresh diet, but are filled with anger and resentment, that diet might not nourish you the way you think it should. All of you needs to be onboard!
So, if you eat fast food every day with a happy heart, will that nourish you? Well, the jury is still out here, but my guess is that since there is not enough energy in the food itself, that the person and the body will slowly turn to unhappiness! That is when people see subtle changes in how they feel down, irritated, low energy and easily stressed.
My point to all this is: diets change, life styles change, circumstances change. But what does not need to change is our integrity, our sincere attention, intention and willingness to eat and live wholesomely.
I have worked in the holistic field for decades, and learned in the health food industry with nutrition, supplements, herbs and alternative therapies. I also studied Traditional Chinese Principals and Ayurvedic Concepts on my own. My extensive knowledge is based on learning experience, not on degrees I received.
I am not a nutritionist, dietician or a medical doctor and will not diagnose or prescribe.
But if you would like to make changes in life style, eating habits or find a diets for balancing stress, mood, energy levels, gut issues or common ailments, I am happy to educate and support you with a road map to a healthier well-being, one step at a time with realistic goals and practical solutions that fit your personality.
I will help you stay accountable for the changes you would like to implement!
