  • Goodbye (for now) Erin :)

    By on September 18, 2016

    We got to catch up with Erin Haddock of Five Keys Yoga for a little decompression about her time at Urban Escape Healing Studio. Check it out:

    “We have been offering group and private yoga classes at Urban Escape since November and also teach at several organizations around Chicagoland.  In addition to traditional yoga classes, we provide Yoga Therapy, specializing in the Yoga for the Special Child® method and adaptive yoga for adults.

    5 Keys had loads of fantastic moments at UE – from working with our wonderful students every week, to leading meditations at the Healing Collectives, to meaningful conversations with guests and other practitioners, just hanging out at UE.  However, our favorite moment had to be leading our sold-out Chakras Workshop in April.  Our group in that workshop was so open and willing to explore deep within themselves. We left feeling full after that workshop because it seemed as though our participants had truly found more self-acceptance and peace.  Plus, we love exploring the Chakras!

    5 Keys will be taking our practice all over Chicago!  Currently, we have adult and kids group classes starting in October at Tribe in Roscoe Village and Yoga for Teens will be moving to the Jefferson Park District building.  Our private clients will continue to see us at Chicago Inclusive in Humboldt Park.  And we’ll be announcing more classes in the coming months…

    We’d like to thank the UE community for its support of 5 Keys.  We feel so grateful to have taught many of you our “tools for living” (in the form of yoga).  Although we are so sad to see the end of UE’s physical presence at 1049 Ashland, we recognize that this too is a lesson in letting go.  Nothing is certain but change, and everything must come to an end eventually.  But UE’s spirit lives on unchanged, within the lives this special community has touched – in the lessons we’ve all learned and in the love we’ve all experienced here.  OM”

  • New Session Spot!

    By on September 13, 2016

    Hey Friends/Family/Folks,

    Great NEWS! Janie and myself (Neale) are officially practicing at Chicago Natural Health & Chiropractic. We are so so happy to be reunited with one of our favorite people at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine when we were studying for our massage therapy license there. We will be working for and alongside Dr. Julie Kotiw and couldn’t be more HAPPY about that. Yay!


    We will be bringing some UEH “vibes” to the West Loop, while working within a beautiful exposed brick loft space on Madison Avenue. We will do smaller workshops and classes there, too! Check out more about them here: www.chicagonhc.com/



    Ya know what’s so GREAT about this? Well, a couple things, but a big one….We take insurance! Come and get a chiropractic adjustment, acupuncture, massage, or some nutritional testing that can be COVERED by insurance. Or heck, come get some energy healing, because yes we will be continuing our spiritual work here too.


    Look for some awesome collaborations and more exciting announcements too. Until then we will be doing our 1-on-1 client work, moving out of the Studio (1 more day!) and generally looking to get our grounding and health back to an optimal level. We will be doing some travelling and hanging out. That sounds so good to say!


    We will still be communicating through Facebook, Meetup, Our website (www.urbanescapehealing.com), and other outlets. Check in with us and we will share the adventure.


    It’s been such a fun ride….and it continues! Hope to see you soon!

  • Attention Neale’s Reiki Students!

    By on August 19, 2016

    Hey all you spirit seekers! All you students of Neale through the years. This one is for you!


    I have had the blessing to work with SO many of you along this journey. Many reiki attunements, shares, emails/phone calls, and support. This is why I feel like offering this…because I know that I’m going through transition and usually the internal matches the external and vice versa. I know that others are feeling the winds of change and sometimes it’s nice to be taken care of and shown some support through it…


    To anyone and everyone that I have had for a reiki attunement. This could be level I, II, or III:


    I’m offering 50% off healing services if you book with me before September 15th. No need to book online. You can email me directly nrbaldyga@gmail.com or text/call 517-331-3196. Usually sessions are $75/hr, as I work around 80 minutes for a session. So, let’s call it $40.
    Integrative Energy Sessions for $40!

    Massage Services for $40!

    Sound Healing Sessions for $40!


    All of these take mind/body/spirit health into account. Of course!


    Yay! Email me OR Text me (preferred communication these days) to set something up.
