Myofascial Release & Acupressure with Yoga Therapy Balls

with Peyton Goldberg
Saturday, May 22nd
1-3PM
COST: $35

 

Our muscles as well as the energetic pathways of the body are constricted by our body’s myofascial system. In this workshop, we will use yoga therapy balls to release the myofascial pathways and restrictions of the entire body – back, neck, arms, legs, hands and feet.

 

Using the balls, we will also stimulate acupressure points along the energetic pathways of the body to release additional tension. Releasing the myofascial lines of the body helps decrease physical and emotional pain, increase overall mobility, and aid the flow of energy (Qi) in the body.

 

The first 30 minutes of class will involve discussion about what myofascia is, how our connective tissues work, how energy flows in the body, how stagnation creates pain, and a general intro into acupressure. The following 90 minutes will be a guided experience working on releasing myofascial restrictions using the yoga therapy balls and self-acupressure.

 

What you will learn:
  • A brief explanation on what fascia is, what our meridians are and how acupressure works
  • How to use yoga therapy balls to break up the myofascial restrictions in the body
  • Self-acupressure to further release restriction and emotional stagnation in the body
  • An easy way to heal yourself and maintain balance physically and emotionally both on your mat and at home

 

What to bring:
Yoga mat, notebook, yoga therapy balls (available for purchase in The Studio boutique), you can also use two lacrosse balls and a large sock.

 

Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.

Facial Yoga & Gua Sha

with Peyton Goldberg
Saturday, June 12th
1-3PM
COST: $35

 

When we exercise the muscles of the body, they tone, lift and tighten Рour faces are no different! There are 42 muscles in the face, many of which connect to the muscles in our neck, shoulders, back and chest.

 

In this workshop, you will learn how to activate and release the muscles in your face, neck and shoulders that tend to cause premature signs of aging (drooping, sagging) and how to tighten and tone the facial muscles. Think of this workshop as an all natural “yoga facelift” by using stretches, facial exercises, self-massage and lymphatic drainage techniques.

 

What you will learn:
  • Anatomy & physiology of the face – general muscle anatomy & lymphatic system
  • How to release posture-supporting muscles in the neck, back and shoulders that cause drooping and sagging
  • How to tighten and tone the major face muscles to naturally lift the face for a more youthful, radiant appearance
  • Learn the basics of lymphatic drainage for the face – helping to remove excess fluid and puffiness
  • Self-massage techniques to work problem areas and encourage movement of fluid
  • We will discuss some of the major complaints – nasolabial folds, under eye puffiness, saggy cheeks, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet
  • Introduction to facial gua sha and how to use this technique to stimulate lymphatic draining, ease wrinkles and contour the face

 

What to bring:

Yoga mat, notebook, gua sha tool (available for purchase in The Studio boutique) or metal spoon, face oil of your choosing. No yoga experience is required. Recommendation: come with a clean, makeup free face to keep from clogging pores.

Reiki is spiritually guided universal life force energy. Reiki amplifies the individuals’ innate ability to heal physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually as well as promote deep relaxation and stress relief. In these Reiki training courses, you will learn to give Reiki healing energy to yourself and others. Anyone can learn Reiki, there are no prerequisites or requirements to Level I. All that is needed is a desire to learn and a willingness to be a conduit for this healing energy.

 

All Reiki training classes are taught by Reiki Masters. Classes will be held by Peyton Goldberg, a Reiki Master who is part of the Professional Reiki Membership Association with the International Center of Reiki Training. She is the owner of Oversoul, where she offers one-on-one healing sessions using a variety of modalities including Reiki, massage, yoga, bodywork and chakra balancing. She is also a yoga teacher at The Studio.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Reiki Level I focuses on general information about the practice of Reiki, how to give Reiki to yourself and others at a non-practitioner level and how to use this energy in your everyday life. In Reiki I, you will learn what reiki is, how it works, how it heals, how to use it, a history of the modality, how to scan yourself for blockages in the energy field (Byosen scanning), how to scan someone else for blockages, how to give yourself a treatment and the standard hand placements used in a Reiki treatment session. Students will also receive an empowerment for Reiki I, depending on the lineage this is sometimes called an attunement and other times a placement. This will align and allow you to tap into pure Reiki energy and share Reiki with yourself, others, pets, plants, food – you name it! Other topics covered in Level I: the chakras and subtle energy body, grounding methods, raising vibration, the Three Pillars of Reiki: Gassho, Reiji-ho and Chriyo, Koki-ho, Kenyoku, Reiki for empaths, space clearing and blessing techniques, Reiki code of ethics, and more.

 

In Reiki II you will learn three Reiki symbols: 1) the power symbol, which amplifies the power of the Reiki energy you channel 2) the mental/emotional symbol, which can be used to heal emotions, thoughts, non-serving patterns, limiting beliefs and relationships, and 3) the distant symbol, which is used for sending Reiki at a distance as well as into the past or future. In addition to learning the symbols of Level II, you will receive the empowerment for Level II (attunement/placement). In this class, Level I will be expanded upon. You’ll learn how to give a treatment and then practice giving full-length treatments while developing your intuitive scanning abilities. You will practice seeing and reading the aura, using pendulums to assist in scanning, learning about incorporating crystals and essential oils into treatments, using tuning forks, using Reiki to change a habit, Enkaku-Chiryo (sending Reiki at a distance), sending Reiki with the eyes (Gyoshi-ho), psychic/energetic protection, clearing negative energy with Jacki-Kiri Joka-ho, Reiki anatomy, how to conduct an animal reiki treatment session, how to run/build a thriving Reiki business, and more.

 

Both Level I and II will include education, discussion, meditation, hands-on practice and plenty of time for questions.

 

WHAT TO BRING

Yoga mat/bolster/folding chair – something comfy to sit on, a massage table (if you have one), a notebook/journal, something to write with, any items you’d like to charge with reiki/send reiki to: crystals, photos of loved ones, and other special items.
