What is Reiki? Reiki (pronounced ray-kee), the Japanese word for universal life force energy, is the practice of channeling this energy into the body to promote healing, stress reduction and relaxation. The word "Rei" means "high knowledge," and "Ki" means "life force energy". Reiki treats the whole person creating many beneficial effects that may include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. It is a natural and safe method for everyone.

Join Ingrid Yang, yoga expert and medical student with a mastery of anatomy and movement, for this amazing and exploratory workshop that will help you find peace and liberation in the body.

We will explore both internal and external rotation, as well as learn therapies specifically for hips, even among those with long-standing pathology. The afternoon will include an in-depth study of the muscles of the hips and a break-down of how certain yoga postures can benefit the hips.
