Kerry Cragin, Yoga Teacher, Life Coach & Counselor
About this pro
My services can be found at Calm Minds Studio in Libertyville, where I work with the planners, worriers, achievers, and multi-taskers who are so busy taking care of other people (and things) that they need help taking care of themselves. Sound like you? Do you: Commute to work or sit at a desk all day and have low back pain, neck and shoulder tension or stand up all day and have tired feet? Have trouble sleeping through the night or trouble falling asleep? Want to feel more focused and present in your day? Want to stop the worrying thoughts and keep you up at night and distract you from your day? Want to feel more relaxed, flexible and balanced? Want to feel happier, more content and fulfilled? I offer a different type of experience. Walking into Calm Minds Studio for coaching, counseling, yoga therapy or a yoga class, you'll find that right away you can come as you are. There are no plush chairs or stigmas. I offer an open, non-intimidating and relaxing environment for you to get what you need, 100% customized for you. Some examples: - A client wants a private yoga class where regardless of the type of day she's day, we can guide her in a relaxing or energizing session that meets her exact needs. Some days it's a lot of floor stretches and other days it's breathing deeply into more strength building poses. - A client wants yoga therapy but really realizes she just wants a non-conventional counseling experience. Her therapist wears yoga clothes. The client sits on a yoga mat in a softly lit room. The client talks and the therapist offers guidance from a unique perspective of helping the client to be more present, accepting and in control. - A client just wants alone time as a busy mom of 3. She uses her time to talk, sometimes exercise, sometimes do yoga, sometimes just lie down and relax. We take both BCBS insurance and offer a sliding scale for self-paying clients. We are completely customizable and promise an experience like you've never had before. Take the stigma out of taking care of yourself. Be proud to come to Calm Minds, where you know you'll get the tools to be a better version of yourself, for yourself and those you love and interact with. Get relaxed. Feel present. Limit the worrying. Find balance.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?We take BCBS insurance for private clients. For self-paying clients, our sessions range from $110-$160 depending on length of time and services asking for.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?There are two routes. We offer weekly gentle yoga and meditation group classes that a client can sign up for online. Otherwise, if seeking private sessions, we identify through an initial phone call what services would work best. Are you interested in a therapy class that infuses yoga and breathing? Are you intersted in a private coaching session that can include anything from exercise, relaxation or talking? Through that initial phone call we'll determine what is the best fit.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?All of our practitioners are licensed in the field of social work, counseling or psychology. As the residential yoga therapist, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Yoga Teacher.
