    Reiki Yin for Grounding and Balance

    Live Stream and/or In Person

    Join Pam for a 2-hour meditative Reiki Yin yoga energy healing session focusing on Grounding and Balance.
     
    We begin with grounding poses to get back to your True Self, followed by opening and healing your chakras. The goal is to invoke the relaxed state of the parasympathetic nervous system to allow healing energy to flow. Pam will guide you back down-to-Earth and heal the seven major chakras (energy centres) along your spine from the root to the crown, dissolving energy blocks and promoting a natural balance between mind, body, and Spirit.

    Each participant will receive Distance Reiki healing energy from Pam, during the course of this powerful healing session. Distance Reiki promotes relaxation and inner peace, cultivating deep inner harmony, and is equally as effective as hovering hands (ie:in-person)!
     
    Reiki energy can only be beneficial and will naturally flow to where your body needs it the most. You will leave the session feeling relaxed and rejuvenated! It is also common to feel an emotional release, creating space for positive energy to flow.

    What else can Reiki do?

    • Accelerate healing from injury
    • Pain relief of chronic issues
    • Aid sleep
    • Clear energy blockages, restore balance
    • Boost immune system
    • Messages from Oneness
    • And much, much more!

    Please bring layers, water, an open heart and mind, and a journal, if you wish.

    Cost: $45.00 per person.

    Due to COVID-19, this course will be offered Live Stream and/or In Person as Ontario and City of Ottawa health authorities permit.

    If you are joining via Live Stream please have on hand: the following props: 2 blocks, 1 bolster, 1 blanket or 4 blankets/folded towels to simulate these props, they will work just as well!

    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance
     
    Live Stream - Online Class

    The full moon is a special time, especially for those who are following a yogic path, because it is an optimum time for clearing and balancing our mind and our energy.

    The moon is deeply and intimately connected with our mind and our thoughts. Meditation can help to cleanse feelings of agitation, and can even provide us with a great opportunity to let go of the mental or emotional baggage that has been weighing us down.

    Meditating at the full moon also help us to unleash our creativity, whether we are focused on specific creative projects or we need new ways of thinking about the problems and issues we are facing. This practice can help us to release old, stuck, energy that no longer serves us.

    During the class, we will clear our mind and balance our body’s chakras (energy centers) through a variety of Kundalini Yoga practices including breath work (pranayam), meditation, and a yoga nidra savasana (relaxation).

    We are all story makers and we are stories. Writing to express ourselves can be a transformative act.
     
    A Writing Practice and expressing what’s on your mind and in your heart can have the following benefits:

    • Better sleep habits;
    • Improved mental health;
    • Regulated blood pressure; and
    • Stronger immune system.

    This series is a 4-week class that includes a mini yoga practice, a prompted writing session and an opportunity to read and listen to each other’s writing. These sessions are designed to hold space for your own creative voice. We all have one, but many of us don’t give it the space to come through. The opportunity to read your work, if you choose to, and receive strength-based responses is another transformational process for both reader and listeners.
