Rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit with Restorative Yoga and Reiki. Supported by blankets, pillows and bolsters in deeply relaxing poses, Carrie will guide you into rest while offering the gentle healing energy of Reiki through light physical contact. Reiki energy promotes healing by activating the relaxation response (parasympathetic nervous system), assisting the body to re-harmonize itself and promoting a more natural balance. Benefits of these practices include decreased stress and anxiety as well as an increased sense of clarity and ease that can both lift the mood and set the foundation for more restful sleep.
No yoga experience is required and all levels are welcome to attend. Because the practice draws the body mind into a restful state, you may cool down, so bring clothes that can keep you warm and cozy. Though blankets will be used for restorative propping and for covering, you may wish to bring your own blanket from home as well. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 9 participants.
Carrie’s love of yoga fostered from a need for balance in her life after struggling with anxiety from a high-pressure corporate job. With a strong desire to support others in finding peace in this crazy world, she earned her 200-hour RYT training at Ananda Shala in Frederick, MD. After discovering the importance of rest to complement a busy life and active yoga practice, she was called to incorporate restorative yoga in her practice and teaching. She studied Restorative Yoga under Tara Lemerise ('Rest for All' Teacher Training). Carrie also has been studying, using, and selling doTERRA essential oils since 2016. She is certified as a Level 2 Reiki Healer, and currently studying to be a Reiki Master. Carrie's goal is to assist others to learn about different tools to support healing and stress management and build integrated community.
