Restorative Yoga with Reiki Healing with Rita Trieger & Fern Guerra

Sunday, February 4th,  1:30-3:30pm

A delicious blend of hands on and Yoga healing. Join Rita Trieger and Fern Guerra for two hours of restorative yoga while receiving hands on or hands above Reiki healing.

Restorative Yoga is ‘passive’ Yoga where the body is fully supported with blankets, bolsters and blocks in Yoga postures to enhance the flow of prana through specific pathways in the body for nourishment and restoration.

Reiki is the healing art of encouraging the flow of ones own energy (universal life force) through the body. Reiki promotes healing on all levels and leaves one feeling relaxed, soothed and with a general sense of well being.

$45/person. Pre-registration is required.
