Reiki Share and Crystal Bowl Sound Healing

Friday September 30th, 6-8p, donation based

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing that everyone can use. It has been effective in promoting our innate healing abilities and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.

Crystal bowls are used to envelop attendees in vibrations that promote healing. Quartz crystal bowls work by sending sound waves throughout your body, which brings harmony through oscillation and resonance. This helps restore your body’s balance which in turn helps you heal. A unique experience not to be missed! Register HERE now.

Restorative Yoga & Crystal Bowls

Rest and Restore

Friday October 21st, 6:30-8:30pm, $30

Join Molly for an evening of rest and sound healing. Restorative yoga is a healing practice of slowing down and moving into yoga postures with the support of props such as blankets, blocks, and  bolsters.  Restorative yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system to promote deep rest and healing.  The class will feel nurturing, relaxing, and regenerating.  This type of yoga promotes a centering of your breath and body – aligning the physical, breath and mental bodies by practicing stillness or gentle movement for extended periods of time. The props assist in helping you to hold poses longer. We recommend this class for anyone in need of rest, healing, relaxation, and de-stressing; no experience necessary! This event is a 2 hour class – $30 per person.  Register HERE. For more information about the benefits of restorative yoga, see: http://www.chopra.com/articles/10-benefits-of-restorative-yoga
