Mackala Lacy, M.S. + Community
My name is Mackala Lacy, but you can call me Kala. I am a community healer, wellness warrior, activist, passionate water sign, and teacher of holistic health who works within underserved communities across the nation to provide education of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellness.
The Well is co-founded by myself and my ancestors and belongs to the community. I humbly maintain our space.
I am an associate psychotherapist. I graduated from CSU Long Beach with a Masters in Counseling in 2018. I currently provide therapeutic services for the South Central Los Angeles community and I love it!
I am a trauma-informed registered yoga teacher. I received my 200-hr Hatha yoga teacher training from the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy in 2015. I currently host Wellness Wednesdays with BlackGirlYoga, a global community of Black women. Join us, here.
I believe in grassroots holistic healing and integrate eastern and western philosophies both on the couch and on the mat.
The Well is unique because of its diverse sources of wisdom. Through collaboration with teachers, clinicians, and healers of all sorts of backgrounds we create a living, breathing, life-sustaining resource. I consider it my responsibility to provide, fight for, and challenge conceptualizations of care in oppressive spaces. It is my intention to spread awareness of the importance and complexities of healing and self-love. I truly believe that we each hold the power within ourselves for radical growth, and seek to guide my students back into their truth. My mission is to help the disenfranchised seek wellness, wholeness: themselves.
