John Gonsalves

John has always marveled about life.  He believes that there’s more to life than meets the eye. He is constantly exploring the unfolding of life, looking at every experience as an opportunity to evolve and grow. This led him to an M. Phil., specializing in inter-subjective relationships.

He delights in the growth of individuals, and enjoyed over two decades with educational institutions, NGOs and charitable organizations, providing value education, leadership and personal growth programs.  Though deeply content with his involvement with them, there was a stirring from within for more – more to learn and more to share. This desire manifested in co-founding Shalom Wellness.

This journey of seeking, led to exploring and learning healing arts in various forms. Certified in a combination of disciplines like Yoga & Meditation, Acupressure, Thai Foot Reflexology and Thai Yoga Bodywork, John continues to expand and grow, blending his knowledge, experience and understanding of universal energy, to inspire wellness.  In all of this, he still creates time to enjoy music, reading, writing, photography, sports and nature.

Yolanda Gonsalves

A day-dreamer by nature, Yolanda believes that life is a gift to be enjoyed. She appreciates the variety and contrast that life offers, and credits some of her most valued lessons of life to two decades in different segments of the corporate world, and over 20000 hours of training and coaching.

Her ability to tune into energy, allows her to connect easily with people to draw out the best from them. Always one to follow her own guidance when making choices, allowed her career to progress from support functions, to management, and ultimately to co-founding Shalom Wellness.

Her desire to be more, and experience balance and harmony with her Total Self, guided her towards a Masters degree in Counseling. As a Counselor, Hypnotherapist, Life Coach and Meditation teacher, Yolanda integrates her life experiences with learned skills, teaching and uplifting individuals on their journey of life.

She keeps herself tuned-in with her love for music, gardening, writing, reading and her new venture – Palate Perks, which together with Shalom Wellness offers food for body and soul.
