Self-Healing with Yoga & Reiki
an evening of Yin & Restorative Yoga 
& self-Reiki

Wednesday March 6th
6:30 to 8 p.m.

with Silke & Lynda

Join us for a healing evening of Yin/Restorative Yoga & Reiki. We will begin with a guided meditation to tune into our bodies and minds. Then we will be guided through a series of deeply relaxing poses from Yin Yoga & Restorative Yoga. We will end the evening with a period of energy healing using self-Reiki.
Yin postures are deep stretches supported by props, held in stillness for 2 to 10 minutes. Restorative yoga is also a passive & supported practice of asana. Both approaches help to release tension & busy thought patterns, while improving circulation and lubrication of connective tissue throughout the body.
Reiki is a relaxing, subtle energy-work technique that channels universal healing energy to activate our natural healing processes, helping us to restore physical, emotional, & mental well-being. 
Suitable for anyone.

Free Your Fascia - Free Your Body/Mind
Working with Therapy Balls

Sundays
March 24th
April 14th
May 19th
  3 to 4:30 p.m.

with Silke

After a full body warm up, each workshop will focus on specific areas of soft tissue in the body. We will use different sized therapy balls to massage and relax the web of connective tissue (fascia). By releasing tension in the soft tissue, particularly the fascia, we will restore energy (heat) into the area. When we release tension, the connective tissue and muscles relax and unwind. We will end with gentle stretching and a long savasana (deep relaxation).
