An Evening of Yoga & Reiki

An Evening of Yoga & Reiki

Join us for another special evening of yoga and Reiki. Yoga, the union of breath & body, combined with the healing energy of Reiki, brings about a sense of peace in the heart and relaxation of the body. Reiki, also known as "Universal Energy", is a Japanese technique that helps in restoring balance to the energetic body. Reiki, breaks down as "Rei", meaning universal, and "ki" means energy. This ancient healing modality is rooted in Tibetan Buddism. When these practices are combined, it allows for a greater opening of the body & mind, allowing for this energy to flow gracefully. 💙

Our evening starts with an herbal smudging as we begin to center and arrive on our mats. Healing crystals will be placed in grids around the room, bringing their energies to the space as well. We then begin a gentle Yin yoga practice as our bodies open and release tensions, fatigue, and stress. Yin yoga is that meditative approach to the practice, where we work our navel and below, with softly held poses, opening and releasing where needed. As our bodies and minds release, this divine energy goes where needed in the body to heal, relax, and renew. 💙 

Finally we settle into a sweet supported savassana while Reiki is offered individually to each participant. This evening will leave you feeling completely restored and renewed. All participants go home with a healing crystal. 💙

Please join us in this magical evening of love, light, and divine healing energy. 💙

Cost is $20.00 per person and reservations on the our website is greatly appreciated 💙

An Evening of Yin & Reiki with Lauren Hewton

Join us for a special evening of Yin Yoga and Reiki. Yoga, the union of breath and body, combined with the healing radiating energy of Reiki, will allow you to find and hold space in the body & mind.
This evening will include breath work, gentle movement and flowing energy. These combined ancient healing practices will leave you feeling peaceful, relaxed, and complete. We start with a smudging ceremony as we settle in and begin to find stillness. 
Yin yoga is that meditative approach to the practice,where our postures will be softly held to aid in the release of toxins, stress, and tension. These releases will help to open and make space in the body. We will then progress to more restorative postures ending in a gently supported savasana pose, to completely let go and relax. As the mind and body relax and open, the mind will expand. As Reiki is offered to each person, the energy in the room will increase and flow, allowing for the body and mind to heal where needed open where needed and absorb this healing energy
Healing crystals and aromatherapy combined with calming music and sound vibrations will make this night complete.

Led by Lauren Hewton, Certified Yoga Instructor, Reiki Master and Crystal & Stones Energy worker

Cost is $20.00. All participant go home with a healing crystal!

*Canceled* - Introduction to Human Design

*Canceled* - Introduction to Human Design

*We will attempt to reschedule this workshop at a later date. The class was canceled due to lack of participant registration. If you are interested in this workshop, or any future event, please be sure to let us know by registering online or call the studio at 252-499-2350*

Introduction to Human Design will explain the basics of how energy works, as well as, understanding your Human Design chart. This is not a chart reading, rather an opportunity for you to understand your true self, the person you were designed to be, not conditioned to be. This will offer an opening to understand why you and others do the things you do, and how we can use this as a tool to transform and renew your life.

What is Human Design? The Human Design System is a synthesis of two streams of science- traditional and modern. The traditional Sciences: Astrology, the Chakra system, the Kabbalah, and most importantly, the I’Ching, the Book of Changes – these are the traditional elements in the synthesis that is Human Design.  Human Design then combines this with the modern science of reading the genetic code, providing you with profound insight into how you are designed to navigate the material world, not how you have been conditioned to live based on society's expectations and judgements.

Pre-Register $20/Walk-In $30; All who pre-register will receive an entry to win Johanna's book, Become your own Super Hero: A 21 day power guide and empowerment journal.  

***To prepare we ask you to download and print your chart at https://www.jovianarchive.com/Get_Your_Chart, bring a pen and, notebook to take notes. We can print on site, if needed. ***

INTRO TO VIPASSANA MEDITATION with Alex Waugh

What is Vipassana? It can be translated as "Insight", a clear awareness of exactly what is happening as it happens. It is a meditation process that gradually chips away at the wall of illusion we may be living and not even know it. With this, it can reveal over time, an ever-increasing awareness into the inner workings of our reality.

Join Alex Waugh as he explains the process and benefits of this form of meditation, guides you into a 30 minute group sit, finishing with metta bhavana, (loving kindness meditation), and a closing discussion.
