Time: 7 pm – 9 pm
Investment: $40+hst
Limited Space, Pre-registration Required @ the studio or ONLINE

Join Vanessa Finiello for an evening of Candlelit Reiki Restorative & Sound Healing.

The intention of this workshop is to provide you with a safe space to feel deeply and release emotions that are held within the body. By holding Restorative postures the body begins to open up and heals itself through deep relaxation.

As we move through the class Vanessa will be infusing Reiki energy healing to realign the body’s energy channels, release emotional and physical tension stored in the body and alleviate physical pains and ailments.

Each posture is supported with the use of blocks, bolsters, blankets and eye pillows to support you in the pose. During savasana Vanessa will take you on a sound healing journey using various instruments, drum medicine and vocalization.

Reiki is natural and can be used by everyone. With long-term use this sensationally uplifting process aids in spiritual awakening, trauma & karma clearing, eliminates habitual negative reactions and alleviates stress, anxiety and depression and increases creative energy & peace of mind.

This peaceful practice will be accompanied with a smudging ceremony, candles, calming music, and essential oils.
