About Us

Jamie & Susan Alden

We are healers, teachers, leaders and the co-founders of Mind Body Aloha.  Our dedication to helping others heal, transform and evolve began in 2003 when we opened The Open Door in Fayetteville, NC, the first holistic wellness center of its kind in that community. 

Mind Body Aloha was inspired by our sincere passion for sharing what we've learned through decades of training, personal practice and mentorship from elders.  Our integrative, holistic approach to wellness is one that infuses our experiences with wisdom, practices and plant medicines that are rooted in Native American, Hawaiian and ancient yogic traditions.  Our workshops, retreats and private sessions integrate powerful tools such as the Medicine Wheel, Ho’oponopono, Himalayan Kriya, Meditation, Functional Nutrition, and Nutrigenomics. 

It may seem unlikely that two warriors, both West Point graduates and former Army officers, would be dedicated to this path.  We've lived a dynamic and uncommon life.  We are honored to pay forward the blessings bestowed upon us and share our gifts with people around the world.   


​Our unique offerings are grounded in timeless wisdom.  We like to think of it as ancient medicine for a modern world.

Our Focus

We support individuals of all ages, families, organizations & change-makers around the world.

Our offerings are specially designed to meet the unique needs of the individual or group, weaving together any of these 7 areas of focus.  

Sattva Yoga

Rooted in the ancient Vedantic and Tantric teachings of the Himalayas, this full-spectrum practice incorporates  powerful breath work, meditation, Kundalini, Kriya, Laya, Bhakti, Hatha Yoga (asana) as well as the healing power of sound and free movement.  After just one class, we promise you'll never look at yoga the same way.  

Nutrition & Weight Loss

It's simpler than you think!  We can help you find sustainable pathways to clean eating and a more healthy lifestyle. 

Optimal Performance & Resiliency

Whether you're a busy parent, military service member, pro athlete or a human just looking to live your best life, we can help you awaken to radical aliveness each and every day. 

Conscious Leadership

We take an inside out approach to  leader development, empowering you to step out and use your unique gifts to make the world a better place.

iRest Yoga Nidra

iRest® Yoga Nidra is a research-based guided meditation practice that cultivates deep relaxation, mindfulness and meditative inquiry.  iRest releases negative emotions and thought patterns, calms the nervous system and develops a deep capacity to meet any and all circumstances you may encounter in life.

Detoxification & Digestive Health

Indigenous medicine people and now modern scientists  understand that your gut is your "second brain."  The path to good health starts here, and we are here to help you navigate it. 

Transcending Stress & Trauma 

Stress and trauma happen.  It's a fact of life, but it doesn't have to dictate yours.  We've helped hundreds of people triumph over trauma and harvest the gifts of their  experience using the science of yoga, meditation and the timeless practices of Ho'oponopono and The Medicine Wheel.  We firmly believe that you have the capacity to be the hero of your own journey.
