Come on a contemplative journey to deeply relax your body, calm your mind, inspire your soul, and access your inner wisdom.

Yin Yoga is a gentle and slow-paced form of yoga with floor-based and longer held postures. It is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary elements. Yin Yoga targets deep connective tissue such as fascia, ligaments, bones and joints. A Yin Yoga practice helps you release physical tension and tightness, as well as diffuse stagnant energy and harmonise chi flow in the body.

We cultivate mind awareness and find peace in stillness by weaving through breath and Mindfulness techniques to make the class a deeply nurturing and meditative practice.

It is a practice suitable for beginners and an excellent complement to a yang practice targeting muscles.

Small-group size for personalised attention and support.

I am sending reiki healing every month, on the day  after the new moon between 8.30-9pm AEST (Melbourne, Australia time) for loving support and guidance.

A new moon is a new cycle and symbolises new beginnings. It is the perfect time to set your intentions, new goals and create your vision for the cycle ahead. It is a time to focus your awareness and energy on positive and loving intentions, to raise your vibrations and manifest what you desire.

At the time of the session, you don’t have to do anything special except relax and receive the peaceful energy. If you are not available at the same time, it’s fine, just imagine receiving the healing when you open the email or before going to bed for my US friends.

If you would like to join, sign up to my newsletter in the sidebar, as I send reiki to everyone on the list. You will then receive an email with what came up during the session. As a bonus when you sign up, you will also receive my free eBook The Mindful Week Journal.

If you would like personalised healing, distance reiki treatments are available.
