Relax & Renew: Yoga & Reiki Self Care Workshop with Michelle Heron and Jennifer Murphy Sunday March 24, 2019 3:30-5 PM 2
Spring is a season of growth, celebrating longer days of light and warmer weather. Reawaken your self-care practices with guided meditation, positive intention and creative reflection. This restorative yoga workshop will explore longer held yin yoga poses, focused breathing, reiki, and hands on assists. We will close with an extended yoga nidra to relax and renew body, mind and spirit. Reiki "life force energy" is a technique based on the principle that energy can be channeled by means of gentle touch and positive intention to activate the natural healing process. Yoga Nidra "yogic sleep" is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping where you are guided systematically through the awareness of your inner world leading towards complete body relaxation.
Simply Plant-Based with Linda Sheehan, Thursday, April 11, 7-9PM
Let’s talk about food!
No matter where you see yourself on the diet spectrum, there is no disputing that eating more whole plant-based foods can enrich your life and improve your health. Diets make lots of promises, but a WFPB diet is the only one proven to prevent and reverse heart disease and impact cancer promotion and progression. Despite the overwhelming research, we get lost amid a storm of media confusion surrounding diet choices — high fat, low carb, high protein — and myths abound.
Food choice is embedded in our culture, in our history and in our habits, and for some, plant-based eating seems unfamiliar. Join Linda Sheehan as she shows you what a plant-based diet really looks like and shares tips for making simple changes that will bring the most nourishing, delicious food on the planet onto your plate!
Reiki Level I Training with Michelle Heron, Sunday 5/19, 10a-4p
Reiki (Ray-Kee) is a Japanese word translated as "Universal Life Force Energy". Reiki is a healing technique that promotes wellness by sending positive intention through the hands.
Reiki has become increasingly popular as a complementary healing modality in health care facilities, hospitals, wellness clinics, healing centers and yoga studios. Reiki supports other healing methods and is of growing interest to doctors, nurses, therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, yoga teachers and other professional care providers. Learning Reiki requires no special skill and is open to everyone. The emphasis is on healing the self and sharing Reiki with others. Many people who are trained in Reiki begin by using it for their families and friends.
Reiki I is the first level of training to perform Reiki. This 1 day class will provide 6 hours of discussion, instruction, and hands on demonstration of how to apply Reiki to yourself and others. In an effort to experience and embody the practice of Reiki, we will explore Reiki history, techniques, principles of positive intention, and the human energy system as it relates to the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body.
For a $100 registration fee, each student will receive a Reiki Level I attunement, certificate, learning manual, and 6 hours of Yoga Alliance continuing education.
