Tal Rabinowitz, The DEN Meditation Founder

Tal Rabinowitz, Founder

Tal Rabinowitz, a former entertainment industry executive knows a thing or two about the importance of maintaining perspective, finding clarity, and staying true to one’s heart when it comes to handling a chaotic life.

A casual course in meditation at her past employer, would make such an impact on her both personally and professionally that she went on implement a 20-minutes-a-day group meditation practice with some of her team. The overwhelmingly positive effects that developed for everyone cemented meditation as a central part of Tal’s life, and from there the idea of the idea of The DEN came to life: A comfortable, no-pressure environment with easy, accessible instruction to help both new and veteran meditators alike enjoy a beneficial, consistent meditation practice.

DEN TEAM: Thalia Randolph

Thalia Ayres Randolph, Studio Manager, Retreats & Brand Relations

Thalia has one mission… to ignite seeds of light within the hearts of every living being. A Toronto native, her career in the healing arts started after her first yoga teacher training in Arizona which then led her to go back to school and dive deeper in to her studies at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. Upon graduating from the Spiritual Studies Program at SWIHA she went on to become an ordained inter-faith minister, which for her represented a commitment to staying devoted to her life’s mission. She has spent the last 5 years professionally being of service through meditation, yoga, reiki and sound healing, across the Southwest and Canada. What Thalia loves most about The DEN is being part of a collective that serves a higher purpose in elevating the consciousness of our community! There is a quote to which she can offer her students who are starting or already on their journey to Self-realization and that is “As we expand, life becomes simple.”- Adyashanti

Asha Kalka: DEN Meditation Instructor

Asha Kalka, Studio Manager

Asha stepped into her first yoga class at the age of 16 as a form of physical therapy after sustaining a spinal injury. This ignited a passion to share the emotional and physical healing she found with others. In 2007 she started her first yoga teacher training and in 2010, completed 500 hours at YogaWorks in Costa Mesa, California. She believes that the physical and emotional bodies are linked and can be accessed through movement and breathwork. She has taught an integrative blend of Restorative, Hatha, and Vinyasa flow classes since 2009. Following her intuition, Asha’s embrace of her talents and skills grew to include energy work, sound healing with Quartz Crystal singing bowls, and guided meditation. The path of holistic and intuitive healing is a lifelong journey and Asha is dedicated to always deepening and expanding her knowledge.
