Guest Workshop: Reiki Vinyasa Flow with Extended Savasana
Date: November 3, 2017
10:00am – 12:00 noon, 200Q

Join Tiffany Ketchmark, guest teacher from Chicago, USA, as you quiet your mind, calm our body, and connect with our breath during this 75 Minuet Reiki Vinyasa flow with extended Savasana for all levels. The class will focus on detoxing the body, opening the chakras, and finding balance through a sequence of twists, balancing postures and deep stretches. The practice will end with a 30 minute Reiki-infused Savasana meditation with individual hands-on Reiki adjustments. Receiving Reiki during Savasana will allow our body and mind to fall into a deeper state of healing and relaxation.

Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit by offering many beneficial effects that include relaxation, feelings of peace, and overall well-being. It is based on the principle that the practitioner can channel “life force energy” into the individual, by means of touch, to activate the natural healing process and restore the balance of the physical, emotional, and spiritual layers of the body. Receiving Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of physical and spiritual healing that everyone can experience. Time will be allotted for Q&A at the end.

****Please come with an intention in mind and an open heart.****
