In Conversation with Lina Vella Bryant — Founder and CEO of Healing Heart Method
In conversation with Lina Vella Bryant — founder and CEO of Healing Heart Method, a business structured to lead people towards physical, emotional, and spiritual fulfillment. An experienced life and business coach, Lina shares more about her company and personal life in the following interview.
Lina, please elaborate on the background of the business and how your personal life contributed to the same?
“Healing Heart Method was founded in March 2020 and is a culmination of my personal and professional experiences. My business provides structured guidance and various coaching classes that retrain the brain through physical, emotional, and spiritual healing modalities. We have been providing one-on-one coaching for several years and have recently added group coaching classes along with online support and chat groups. We plan to have an online store soon as well.
What drove you to want to start such a unique business?
“As a lifelong entrepreneur with a close connection to my spiritual journey, I began my career 35 years ago as an interior designer and business marketing graduate. I later received my architectural and feng shui masters degree. I designed and built national health and wellness brands like Equinox Fitness, Exhale Spa, Yogaworks, SoulCycle, Flywheel, Physique 57, and Barry’s Bootcamp. All while continuing my own health, wellness, and spiritual journey of yoga and shadow work. However, nothing holds a candle to the experience of being a single mother raising 3 children who are now thriving young adults.
What inspired you to pursue your profession?
“My 3 children have been my biggest inspiration. Divorcing their dad brought me to the awareness of all the trauma I was storing in my body which then manifested into depression and PTSD. Having my children made me understand that my health and wellness came first because without it I would not have been able to properly care for and nurture them. Through my healing journey, I found my purpose and an outlet. I created an anonymous blog where I coached private clients. I furthered my studies and practices and this year I decided to birth yet another entrepreneurial venture, Healing Heart Method.
How has the Covid-19 pandemic affected your business?
“I have been coaching individual clients for over 3 years now as a side business and volunteer basis. The pandemic made me realize how important my work is. The engagement in my private chat rooms and inquiry for coaching increased exponentially as the world was in crisis. We are individually and collectively experiencing massive change through the enlightenment of the shadow side of life during this pandemic. Life as we knew it pre-pandemic, will never be the same. Planetary shifts are highlighting different areas of life from our closest relationships to the outdated patriarchal systems that have been in place for many centuries. These outdated systems begin with the healing of society, pointing out awareness of the many layers of diversity and suppression of the female archetype. We have seen the activism, the light has been shone and now it’s up to us to pivot our mindsets, from our unconscious minds to a conscious society. Inclusive vs. exclusive. Healed vs wounded. Decades-long data has proven that along with modern medicine we can heal ourselves from the inside out with a holistic and organic approach to daily living.
Where do you see yourself in the near future?
“In the near future, I see many opportunities for my business to grow, up-leveling on an individual and global scale. As a spiritual life and business coach, I know healing is as contagious as a virus. I’d like to see my program integrated into mainstream organizations allowing each individual to thrive within any organizational environment, whether academic, corporate, or institutional.
