Regina Verdico
Conscious Connector

Regina began her meditation practice and yoga journey over 10 years ago. She was in need of inner peace, calm and happiness, and she knew meditation provided all of these benefits. She began her meditation practice through her studies of A Course in Miracles and has never looked back. Meditation calmed her spirit and gave her more peace. No matter what was happening in her life, she knew if she showed up to meditate, even if only for 5 minutes, everything was OK. Regina loved the physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits and became an advocate to help others ‘return to themselves.’ Her meditation practice deepened ten-fold as a result of what she was learning through yoga and other healing modalities such as Kundalini yoga, sound healing, Reiki and so much more. Her passion was inspiring and she became a source to help people begin their meditation practice. As a result of meditation and attuning to her needs, Regina left corporate America in 2016 to teach meditation, yoga and breath work and leads meditation in corporate environments, yoga studios, retreats and private wellness events.

Everyone encounters the trauma of loss, grief or disappointments in life. We are a society that pushes thru and finds a multitude of coping skills to avoid the painful: overeating, shopping, binge watching, etc.


It seems to be everywhere:
Memories that haunt.
Grief and loss.
Trauma IS everywhere and we’ve been given precious few resources to process and move on from painful memories and incidents. There is a better way than coping.
