Our Mission

Our Mission

We offer an integrative, holistic approach to optimize health and wellbeing

through our transformational classes, international retreats, and

revolutionary cellular activation products.

Areas of Expertise

Transcending Trauma 

We've helped hundreds of combat veterans and survivors of sexual assault triumph over trauma and harvest the gifts of their  experiences in our holistic approach to healing and transformation. 

Nutrition & Weight Loss

It's simpler than you think!  Our model has nothing to do with trendy diets or counting calories.  We will help you find sustainable pathways to clean eating and a more healthy lifestyle.  We also provide nutritional and lifestyle support to cancer patients in treatment and recovery.  

Human Performance

Whether you're a professional athlete, corporate executive, busy parent, military veteran, or anyone aiming to optimize performance, we can help.  We share an evidenced-based, measurable approach that has been a game-changer for our clients. 

Life Coaching

Are you changing careers, navigating a major loss, starting a new business, retiring after a long career, or just struggling to find your spark again?  Our unique approach to life coaching is focused on helping you navigate change, tap into your unique gifts, and become the hero of your own journey. 

Developing a Daily Meditation Practice 

Daily meditation is one of the most simple things you can do to support your health and wellbeing.  We are trained in various forms of meditation including iRest® Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Transcendental and Himalayan meditation techniques.  We also have experience with the work of Dr. Joe Dispenza.  We can help you learn to meditate and develop a daily practice that best suits you and your life.

Detoxification & Digestive Health

Your gut is your "second brain" and foundational to your immune system and overall wellbeing.  The path to good health starts here, and we are here to help you navigate it. 

Yoga Therapy

We teach therapeutic yoga, breathwork, and meditation adapted for people of all ages, abilities, and disabilities.  Susan is a Certified Yoga Therapist (I-AYT) who's been working with amputees, elderly, and children for two decades.  To learn more about what yoga therapy is and how it can help you or those your love, click here for more details.

About Us

About Us

Jamie & Susan Alden

We are healers, teachers and servant leaders.  Our dedication to service stems back to our time in the military.  We are both West Point graduates and former Army officers. 


Our journey into the health and wellness industry began in 2003 when we launched The Open Door in Fayetteville, NC, the first holistic wellness center of its kind in that community.  During this time, we also started leading transformational retreats in partnership with organic farmers and Native American elders.  In 2007, we put down roots on Oahu and immersed ourselves in the Hawaiian culture and healing practices.  We started leading retreats with some of the most impactful elders in the Native Hawaiian community.  Over the past 20 years, yoga has been a consistent presence in our lives personally and professionally.  Our yogic lineage extends to where we trained in Northern India and the ancient teachings of the Himalayas.


Our military service, the training and work we've done in Western healthcare models, and our vast experiences with indigenous elders have impacted our lives and influence what we teach.  We like to think of our unique offerings as ancient medicine for a modern world.
