What is your favorite hike in LA?

I like to hike up Chantry Flat in the Angeles National Forest. My favorite trail is Winter Creek because I can get lost in the trees and feel the presence of fairies.

Chona Benardo

chona_bernardo_06_web_colorChona is a Long Beach native finding solace along the coast. After moving to LA, she strived to find that same peace of mind and found it in yoga & meditation.
Her discipline in her practice allows her to keep a good composure, stay centered, and grounded. It's helped her to flow more gracefully through the emotional waves of life. Strengthening her spiritual practice develops her intuition as a Reiki healer and as a visual artist. When she's not painting, she enjoys reading, collecting crystals, and spending time with loved ones. She also enjoys nature and finding meaning in the details of the universe.
