About the event
Join Eunice and Rod for a full 2 hours workshop immersed in going within healing experience.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing, a type of alternative medicine. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" (we are all energy from the same source) is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. You will be nourished and made whole by the healing effect of Yin. Yin Yoga is often known as yoga for the joints as it primarily focuses on the joints above knee height and beneath the navel. In targeting the hips, pelvis and lower back this practice can increase the mobility and the agility of these regions that become less mobile primarily through disuse and aging. Yin promotes greater circulation through the body’s core resulting in greater comfort when the body is still for prolonged periods.
Yin can enable us to come home to our physical body, to deeply inhabit regions of ourselves that may have been untouched for a long period of time. We can come back to the initial concept of what does it feel like for me to be in this body, in this shape, in this space, in this moment of time. We learn to feel the body from the inside, to deeply listen and respectively respond.
When the sympathetic nervous system has been working overtime, yin yoga can promote the relaxation response by providing a space for the body to deeply relax, rest, recover and be nourished. Rod will use the healing universal energy of Reiki for immediate release of stress and tension and Eunice will lead you through Yin postures in non-heated room, to release any resistance and to use the mind to move towards it along with breath work to soften the boundaries.
Together they will take you into a deep dive into your inner being with a magical experience of the sounds of singing bowl, medicine drum and chimes and some chanting. All are welcome.
