Vladi Starkov is a Licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist, and Doctor of Medical Qigong residing in Sonoma County.

Now Vladi has over 5,500 hours of academic/clinical training in Chinese Medicine theory, Western Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbology, Medical Qigong, and Nutrition, and is a graduate of Five Branches University and the International Institute of Medical Qigong.  Vladi specializes in pain management, women’s health, fertility, Ayurveda and psycho-spiritual emotional balance.  She is also a Certified Massage Therapist, emphasizing Shiatsu, Lotus Hands, and Ayurvedic massage.

Fiorella Butron is a Personal Chef and Sommelier trained at Cordon Bleu in Lima, Peru.  She studied medicine for two years before realizing she had more of a passion for the healing qualities of food.  Her Spanish, Italian and Middle Eastern heritage influences her creativity in the kitchen, and her studies of Ayurveda provide her dishes with the perfect balance of flavors to promote both wellness and sensory enjoyment.  Fiorella has a wide range of experience cooking seasonally fresh foods from the garden and fusing exceptional flavors for five star resorts. We are in for a fantastic treat to be fed and educated by this incredible chef and healer as she teaches us to incorporate each of our senses when we relate to food. Fiorella will inspire us to come away from this retreat ready to make more nourishing, delicious meals for ourselves and our families!
