Yoga has been a part of my life before I knew what yoga actually was. And I’m not talking about being able to bend and twist your body into contortionist postures… I’m referring to a way of being. Seeing the world with open eyes and an open heart, without holding judgment, and recognizing the connection that we all have to one another and to the earth. As a young child I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher, but in what capacity I didn’t know. Even when I went to my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training, I did not think that teaching yoga was my calling. I just wanted to know more about the spiritual aspects of the practice. Within the first few days of my program I was inspired, intrigued, and motivated. I knew that I was embarking on the path that I was meant to be on. From that moment forward I knew that I could never know it all, that I would forever be the student on this journey that we call life, and to me that was thrilling.
Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle of channeling energy by means of body scanning and light touch. These techniques are able to activate natural healing processes and restore physical and emotional well-being. This was not my first experience with Reiki, and with each energy healer there is an authentic approach and efficiency to their work. Tiffany's presence and soothing character was refreshing throughout the two workshop style classes that she held. Plus, the asana practice was meditative and really opened up the heart. Wonderful. If you missed out on this opportunity, no worries, she will be returning to The Breathing Tree in June!
The Bad Ash Tour continued today at Heading Om in Peoria, IL. Many thanks to the incredible people that came, participated & shared energy for the Warrior Workshop, Asana, & Getting Comfortable Upside down & on Your Hands Workshop. Thank you to Tammy Mitchell at Heading Om for sharing her space with me, and welcoming me with open arms. Much gratitude happening, when thinking about how fun this day was. Next weekend, I'm in Farmington, IL for my last workshop before I Ieave for Bali. Love darlings, have a great weekend!
Saturday morning was round 2 for Yoga & the Voice in Bloomington, IL at Tonya Keach Yoga & Wellness. What an incredible class!
