Workshops for Healing

Yoga, Reiki, and shamanic practices are healing on many levels. I have created a variety of workshops and circles so you can access this healing in a way that is personally authentic and empowering. These events are scheduled regularly at True North Yoga’s studios in Schroon Lake and Keene Valley, New York. If you would like to host one of these workshops at your location, contact me.

Restorative Yoga, Reiki & Yoga Nidra

Take a big “ahhhh” and relax onto bolsters and blankets in gentle, supported yoga poses. Enjoy easy stretching supported by Reiki hands-on energy for deep relaxation, then get even deeper when you are systematically guided into “yogic sleep.”

During this two-hour workshop, you can drop into your natural healing state, where revitalization and regeneration occur. This is an opportunity to take a break from stress, everyday concerns and limiting beliefs, slow down and reconnect to your whole self.

Perfect for all levels of yoga practice.

Shamanic Healing Self-Care

Discover simple, self-empowered healing techniques and boost your overall sense of wellness.

During these experiential workshops, you will explore shamanic journeying, breathwork and ceremonies that will open you to the healing forces of the earth and the elements, practice accessible and rejuvenating yoga poses, awaken your personal energetic flow, and discover how to create a healing environment for your own wellness practices.

This is your ideal workshop if you are curious about shamanic practices, yoga, or how these practices intertwine. Beginners and practitioners of all levels are welcome.

Your next opportunity to experience shamanic healing as self-care is:

Journey & Drum Circles

Journey and drum circles are a celebration of community. They begin with a short ceremony to open sacred space and a short guided shamanic journey, followed by open drumming and chanting.

During the circle we empower each other through rhythm and music, created “in the moment” by all the participants, through cooperation and collaboration. As we drum together, we give ourselves a rhythmical massage and an emotional release. The experience is unique to each person in the circle, and it happens whether you are drumming, tapping your feet or clapping along, chanting, or simply sitting and listening.

Bring your bright spirit, a drum or other percussion if you have one (we’ll have extras to share) and your desire to merge into the oneness of shared music-making. No talent or skill is necessary – your heart beat is your inner rhythm.

Journey and drum circles are hosted monthly by True North Yoga at both the Schroon Lake and Keene Valley, New York, studios. Visit True North Yoga’s website for upcoming dates.

Reiki Shares & Healing Circles

During the Reiki Share and Healing Circle, you join other energy modality practitioners for an opening meditation, then share in the giving and receiving of healing energy. You will bond with the group through a mutual exchange and respect for a healing force that is much greater than each individual.

At the Reiki Share, we set up in groups with massage tables and take turns in giving Reiki and receiving Reiki. The combined group energy is a beautiful experience and aids us all on our healing paths. This is an excellent opportunity to practice and receive feedback in a safe, supportive, and judgement-free space.

The circle is open to all practitioners of Reiki and related energy healing modalities, at any level of attunement or experience.

Reiki shares and healing circles are hosted monthly by True North Yoga at both the Schroon Lake and Keene Valley, New York, studios. Visit True North Yoga’s website for upcoming dates.
