    Guest panelists:

     

    Dr. Nancy Iankowitz, DNP, RN, APRN, FNP-BC, Director of Holistic and Integrative Healing LLC, is a certified family nurse practitioner by trade, mother by choice, and writer by nature. Her books facilitate healing through storytelling, so adults and children of all ages may learn how to cope with anxiety and improve communication in their relationships. Her articles separate fact from fiction to allay fears and educate the public about wellness practices to protect themselves and loved ones from the flu, sinusitis, back pain, COVID-19, and more. As a Reiki practitioner she teaches self-healing, as we all have that power. As a functional medicine provider (over 30 years), she embraces a SYSTEMS – based rather than ‘symptoms – based’ approach to wellness. Eastern and western wisdom are blended to individualize treatments & recommendations for each patient. 

    https://driankowitz.com

     

    Carol-Lee Kantor, MSW, now retired, worked professionally and also as a community volunteer in the fields of Education, Recreation, Community and Medical Social Work, Arts Administration, Community Theatre and Media for over fifty years.  She holds a BSc. from Sargent College, Boston University; a MS Ed from Western Connecticut State University at Danbury and a MSW from Wurzweiler School of Social Work, Yeshiva University.

    At present, Carol-Lee enjoys painting and exhibiting her work locally with ArtEast Dutchess where she serves on the Steering Committee.  She also serves on the Boards of Pawling Public Radio; The Pawling Shakespeare Club; Mended Hearts of Putnam County and formerly served on the Board of the Pawling Theatre Company.   Carol-Lee most recently produced and hosted “Kaleidoscope with CLK” on Pawling Public Radio where she interviewed friends and neighbors from near and far about many, diversified topics of public interest.

    Carol-Lee resides in Holmes, where she and Joseph, her husband of 57 years, raised three daughters Jill, Hilari and Lynel (all PCS graduates).  At present, they feel blessed for many wonderful visits with their families, their grandchildren and friends.

    At this time, Carol-Lee feels she is learning many new technical and communication skills as she and her loved ones cope with the stresses and strains caused by the Pandemic. She looks forward to the opportunity for a community dialogue on how we are being impacted as well as how we handle the many challenges we encounter at this time.

     

    Gabrielle Semel, ERYT 500, AHC: As Founder of Pawling Yoga & Wellness, Gabrielle is committed to the lifestyle of Yoga and Ayurveda, and has been sharing practices supported by these healing sciences for 13 years. Her approach begins with the intention to connect with each individual, to hold the space for healing, and offer guidance that honors and embraces where one is on his/her own path.

    A graduate of Rutgers University with a BS in Exercise Physiology, Gabrielle moved on to yoga to broaden her understanding of movement and the body-mind complex. Her training began with Amy Pearce-Hayden for 200-Hour Teacher Training certification at The RajaHatha School of Yoga in 2006, and four years later traveled the path of the 500-Hour Teacher Training with certification in 2011. Inspired by her students, and with a commitment to learning and devotion to service Gabrielle continues to dive deeper in search of a broader understanding of the healing process. She currently has the privilege of studying Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Somesh Kaushik at his Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic in Cross River, NY.

    Pawling Yoga & Wellness is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization-a community wellness center where holistic practices and education are accessible to all.
