Reiki & Yin Yoga: An Exploration of Energy Healing & Self-Care
with Nicole McLaughlin & Gina Tatsumi of The Reiki Room
Join Nicole, along with Reiki Master/Teacher, Gina Tatsumi for a three hour self-care experience combining the energy healing practice of Reiki and the intentional, deep-stretching practice of Yin Yoga.
The workshop begins with an introduction to Reiki, a Japanese healing modality that works with our energy field. Gina will share how Reiki can help you bring balance to mind, body, and spirit to help promote healing. In addition to Reiki you will also learn about incorporating some essential oils and gems & crystals to move your energy.
The afternoon concludes with a full Yin Yoga practice, longer-held, deep stretches with a focus on connective tissue – joints, ligaments, fascia – and connection to deep, intentional breath. Before the practice, Nicole will share a bit about the roots of Yin Yoga and its benefits, as well as demonstrate how props can be used to support the postures.
During the Yin practice, Gina will offer a Reiki sample to each student and an essential oil anointing (if desired).
1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Early Registration: $80 (sign up by February 10th)

Basics of Mindfulness: Part One

Do you feel Scatterbrained?…Distracted?…Too fidgety to focus? No matter how much you think you are too “this” or “that” to be mindful, come find out how wrong you are!
Part One of this two-part immersive series presents mindfulness for complete beginners. We’ll enjoy some simple mindful practices, both as a group and individually, and learn some skills that you can take home with you for practice.
There will be a time of discussion and getting to know each other, so be prepared to be constructive and kind in the group, and share your thoughts when you’re comfortable. Tea and light refreshments provided. Bring a mat if you have one.
