Yoga for Better Sleep (Yoga Nidra)
This practice is like a deep sleep while you are still awake. There is no physical effort at all. If you can breathe, you can do this practice! Rest your mind and body supported by props as Kalyani takes you on a journey within. Great for insomnia, stress and to simply recharge. Half an hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 3 hours of conventional sleep! We can also add this on to any other session.
Example: 60 minute Gentle Flow with 30 minute Yoga Nidra at the end.

Aromatherapy, Sound Healing and Reiki can be incorporated into this deeply healing and relaxing practice based on stillness.

You will release stress stored deep within the body and leave feeling renewed and recharged.
Therapeutic Yoga (Yoga as Medicine)
A class that is specifically designed to work with your body. Postures that are geared towards healing an injury or illness you are working on. May include alternative healing modalities in addition to your yoga postures. We dive deep into the emotional root cause of your suffering. Through awareness we can find our path back to wellbeing.
The word "Reiki" comes from the Japanese words "rei" (universal) and "ki" (life energy). Reiki is a type of energy healing. A session can be either 60 or 90 minutes. Where you simply lay, fully clothed, as I place my hands lightly on or over specific areas of your body for between 2 and 5 minutes.
According to the University of Minnesota, patients who have undergone a Reiki session report:
"I feel very refreshed and seem to be thinking more clearly."
"I can't believe how hot your hands got!"
"I feel more relaxed than even after a massage."
"My headache is gone."
Therapeutic in nature. Moving at a perfectly slower pace you will be able to connect more deeply with every posture. Expect lots of relaxing deep stretches as well as meditative and breathing techniques. Stress and tension will simply melt away.
Still gentle and healing in this session we begin to explore standing postures as well. Your breath will be your guide as you flow from one pose to the next. Slowly warming the body, then diving deep into more flexibility, and finally releasing the tension and stress in the mind.
This session will get your heart pumping but then use the breath to calm it back down. Perfect for increasing your strength and flexibility. After all of your hard work, there is a yummy deep relaxation at the end.
