I am always amazed at how restful people look after a session of reflexology and I am very grateful that someone suggested to me to train in this modality.
With all the unavoidable stressors of life, it is great to find something that helps us find homeostasis. Reflexology is one way to help increase the circulation loop in the body, and with that increased circulation, the body is better able to do its job of detoxification. A session will often de-stress us by unwinding our nervous tension. As the nervous system moves into the para-sympathetic system for a time — time after time I have heard a client say they obtained a better quality of sleep at night. They often find themselves gently relaxing and sometimes dozing off during the session itself.
Everyone is different and your experience will be the best experience for you — as you relax enough to let your own body's wisdom of healing rise up to the surface.
The client is fully clothed, under a blanket for warmth and privacy and only their feet are accessed for "hands-on" treatment with one portion of the session helping them relax the back of the lower leg.
Important: For the health of the practitioner sessions cannot be given if there are any exposed infections, cuts, or dis-ease. After those have cleared up you are welcome to experience a session.

Reiki is an energy therapy based on the premise that "all of us have a life force that flows through us."
After speaking with the client about their intentions for the session, they lay fully clothed on a massage table during the session to encourage comfort – with a blanket as needed for warmth. The practitioner does a gentle "laying-on-of-hands" and guides the client as needed.
There is a saying in yoga "whatever you lay your eyes on, gets more energy."
Reiki is a lot like that — always with an intention of the highest good for all. Laying-on-of-hands can feel like an energetic boost to the nervous system, an incredible rest, or an energy that allows us to finally let go of thoughts or emotions that are holding us back.
It is the clients’ own intentions and choices that allow the desired energetic shifts to take place.
SOUL PAINTING WORKSHOP
Breathing Space Yoga and Wellness Services — 541 Main St. East (Street parking available in front of the studio on Sundays)
Dates to come /
$60 Covers space rental, materials and workshop
The intention of this workshop is to explore different aspects of ourselves. To soften into that place of “connection within.” We will do some stretches as a way to greet the day, clear our minds, and get in touch with the inner as our guidepost for the rest of the workshop.
A group exercise will be explored to bring us together, and we will work with a particular type of crystal with a focus.
• There are yoga mats available to sit on, and blankets or bring your own. We will be on the floor a fair bit so please bring cushions if you need them.
If you have a laptop table-top you would rather work on, please bring it. Arrangements can be made if your body must sit at a table.
• Wear comfortable clothing — not your best in case paint finds them. Meditation stools are fine for any of the sitting.
NOW, SOME MORE WAYS TO PLAY!
Let’s Use Our Creative Minds Together in a Different Way and Open up the Doorway to New Possibilities.
GARDEN GATE (UNIVERSAL TEMPLATES)
Breathing Space Yoga and Wellness Services — 541 Main St. East (Street parking available in front of the studio)
Dates to be announced. Spring 2020.
Using the sacred geometry Garden Gate Universal Templates as our meditation tools we will dive into the sacred geometry of these different intentions.
Our first night together will be to explore the different Gates through meditation. It is quite intensive to move through these energies in the short amount of time that we will be working with these. We will be in and out of meditation for the entire workshop experience.
The second night together will be sharing our experiences of working with the Gates over the course of the week. And to do one final meditation. It is precious to come together and allow our communication to expand our own experience and to possibly receive from other perspectives in the group.
This time will allow for more questioning and complete our shared time expanding with these Gateways. (Please bring your Gates for use for the second evening of the workshop.
Commitment for this workshop will be made by purchasing the Garden Gates in advance of your workshop fee to cover shipping from out of province to me so we have them for the workshop date. (This amount will not be refundable after ordering.)
Your puchase will include four, Garden Gate Meditation Series prints, 9” x 12” in size, and they are on natural white classic crest paper in a card weight. A 5” x 7” parchment card accompanies each template containing information on that particular focus of sacred geometry, and The Garden. Each Gate is $20. (Hence $80 for our materials for the workshop, and $30 for space and myself to give the workshop.
These Gates are for you to keep as your own, and to use and work with as you like. (Some people have chosen to frame them as they are stunning pieces to look at as well as resonate with daily. Some have placed them at work, or in their meditation or healing rooms if they are practitioners doing alternative therapies.)
Total cost $110 — $80 in advance of the workshop for purchase and shipping in advance of the Gateways for the workshop and $30 on the first night. Note the gateways are not returnable as I need to have these shipped from Winnipeg.
Limited to 8 people.
