About The Event
We invite you to a relaxing evening of restorative yoga and reiki healing. Release stress and tensions from the body with gentle, mindful movements and breathing techniques, ending in sweet Savasana. The soothing sounds of cascading waterfalls from the Japanese water garden will accompany you while you receive reiki. As you relax on your back, Reiki healers will gently hover their palms on specific parts of the body to deliver the tranquil healing Reiki energy to you. Everyone is welcome to this practice. No yoga or previous reiki experience is necessary.
At its core, Restorative Yoga is a practice of passive healing. By allowing time for longer asanas (postures or poses) and deeper breathing, restorative yoga helps elicit the relaxation response. This response can help slow breathing, reduce blood pressure, and produce a feeling of calm and increased well-being. Reiki is a Japanese form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. It has been around for thousands of years. Reiki works with the energy fields around the body. Energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. Energy healing aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Improving the flow of energy around the body, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
This mini-retreat will be guided by Reiki Healers, Yoga Teachers, Meditation Guides and long time friends Sherie Sloane, E-RYT/ YA-CEP and Erica Cybulski, CYT. Sherie is the Founder of the Gift of Rest, Painted Yoga and the heart behind The Zen Space & Garden. Erica is the force behind Soul Saging, a Reiki-based healing center and a 7th Level Reiki Master Teacher in the direct lineage from Usui.
This event will take place in a private outdoor location in Mokena, IL, with clean airconditioned restroom for your convenience. Address will be sent upon registration. The garden is set within a spacious 1-acre yard, designed to give you a peaceful place where you can relax and rebalance your Zen. There will be plenty of space to social distance. Refreshments and pre-packed healthy treats will be served after the event so you can enjoy the summer blooms and the sounds of flowing water.
