Who should attend? Anyone who wants to feel refreshed and rejuvenated! No yoga experience is necessary.
Relax. Restore. Refresh.
Pam Collier and John Olive are excited to join forces to create this unique spa-like yoga/Reiki experience for the Alchemy Hot Yoga community. For a full 90 minutes, you will be soothed and nourished through Reiki, restorative yoga, music, and aromatherapy, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and lighter on your feet.
Relax. Your stress will quickly fade as Pam and John start by leading you through a guided meditation and gentle breathing practice. Their soft voices, relaxing music, and the subtle hint of Palo Santo will help you release your worries and quiet your mind.
Restore. Next, you will settle into various fully supported restorative yoga poses. Using bolsters, blankets, and blocks to ensure there is no pain or strain on your body, you will settle into mental and physical bliss.
Refresh. Here is the best part: Pam and John will provide individual Reiki sessions for every student. The healing energy passes through their hands to you to release your anxiety and stress and bring you peace, relaxation, security, and wellness.
Just Say "Ahh!" When all is said and done, you will have enjoyed a full 90 minutes of restorative yoga, a personalized Reiki session, and you will walk out feeling like you spent a day at the spa!
What is Reiki?
Reiki is Japanese for a "universal life force energy" and healing technique. It is a safe, non-invasive technique used to balance and energize a person's energy system. With the practitioner's gentle or near-body touch the student's energy becomes more balanced, leading to a release of stress and a more relaxed state of being. The soothing technique can also open and align the chakras, or the energy centers, in your body.
Pam and John joke that they are the Mutt and Jeff of yoga teachers. Female/male; tall/short; weird/serious; yin/yang! They believe their personal experiences and complementary yoga strengths make them the perfect pair to create this special experience.
They will meet every student at their personal comfort level. Consent cards will be offered allowing attendees to select hands-on or near-body touch Reiki. In addition, attendees can select Pam, John, or both to administer Reiki.
Pam loves teaching students the nuances of yoga poses, and she especially likes teaching beginner yogis proper form and alignment. Pam teaches classes at Alchemy Hot Yoga and is the owner of Lake Gaston Yoga.
