Feeling stressed out? Give yourself the gift of an evening of slow flowing and restorative yoga with the beautiful and healing sounds of crystal bowls, Koshi chimes, hand pan drum, and gongs. Maria Santoferraro will lead you through breathwork, gentle and restorative yoga, mudras, chanting, and meditation that will bring about a sense of peace, while Sharon Lichtscien immerses the room with rich and vibrational sounds that will touch your soul and lift your spirits. An extended savasana with gongs is part of the experience (if you have never been bathed in the sound of a gong, you do not want to miss this opportunity!). You will leave feeling relaxed and at peace. Class size is limited so make your reservation soon!

The use of essential oils and Reiki to enhance and complement the yoga practice has been used in many cultures around the world. Essential oils like Sandalwood and Vetiver aid the mind in sensory balance and rejuvenation. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, energy realignment, and relaxation that promotes healing. Together, the combination of restorative yoga, essential oils, and Reiki creates a total mind and body experience. This workshop will begin with a brief introduction to the qualities and benefits that essential oils and Reiki can provide to heal, cleanse, nourish your body and uplift your mood. A relaxing restorative yoga practice to bring alignment to each of the chakras will follow. Give yourself the gift of some well deserved nurturing time on your yoga mat. You will leave the workshop relaxed and refreshed. If you have been curious about the benefits of essential oils and Reiki, please join Maria Santoferraro and Sarah Greenawalt a Master Reiki practitioner working with Practical and Traditional Usui Reiki systems for this workshop.
