Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India around 400 C.E. The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to unite”. The practice aims to create union between body, mind and spirit, as well as between the individual self and universal consciousness. Such a union tends to neutralize ego-driven thoughts and behaviors, creating a sense of spiritual awakening. -Yogapedia
The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, Regular yoga practice creates mental clarity and calmness; increases body awareness; relieves chronic stress patterns; relaxes the mind; centers attention; and sharpens concentration. -Natalie Nevins, DO, American Osteopathic Association

What is Reiki? Reiki means life-force energy. Everything in this world gives energy. There can be times in our life that our vibrational energy is low, restricted, or blocking our Chakras. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. When your Chakras are blocked so is your flow of energy and emotional state. This can lead to experiences of feeling stuck in life, feeling not good enough, feeling sluggish or lethargic, decrease in stress tolerance, and feeling ungrounded and unsettled. Reiki helps facilitate the flow of energy in your body and creates well-being.
