R&R Time! Reiki and Restorative Yoga at HeartStream!

Beat Breakup with Reiki and Restorative Yoga this April!  Join HeartStream yoga teacher and Reiki Healer Jasmine Johnson-Kennedy for a pair of mini-retreats. 

Combining the modalities of Reiki Healing and the practice of Restorative Yoga, these workshops invite you to shed the tension and stress of the long dark cold days of winter and open to the warming sun and bright joy of our Alaskan summer.  
Support the body and rest the mind with a restorative yoga practice and soothing music while you receive the healing energy of Reiki to nourish yourself on all levels.

Restorative yoga asana are restful, long-held poses supported by props (an abundance of blankets, blocks and bolsters) that are designed to relax and nourish mind body and heart.  
Reiki is a gentle and profoundly restorative form of hands-on energy healing. Reiki facilitates deep relaxation and catalyzes the natural healing response.  

These mini-retreats are a two-for-one: not only will you get two hours of deliciously restful, rejuvenating restorative practice, you will also receive a number of mini Reiki treatments. 
Jasmine will guide you in a sequence of restorative yoga poses, holding each pose for 5-10 minutes in order to allow the body's tension to melt away, the heart to open, and the mind to rest and renew.  As you rest in the comfort and support of the restorative yoga poses, she will offer mini Reiki sessions to each participant in turn.  Depending on the size of the class, everyone will receive Reiki 2-5 times.  Jasmine will place gentle hands on head, shoulders and feet and channel the healing life-force energy of Reiki to allow you to deepen your experience and receive healing where ever it is most needed.  If you're curious about Reiki or energy work in general, this is the perfect way to explore this alternative healing modality in the safe and serene space of HeartStream's yoga studio.

Are you feeling over-worked, stressed-out or tired?  Does break up have you feeling stuck-in-the-mud?  Do you long for a little peace and quiet or a private oasis?  How long has it been since you've had some quality me-time?  

These mini-retreats are for you!
