Autumn Yin & Reiki with Essential oils

Join Allie Brawley and Lola Kennedy for a relaxing and restorative experience as settle into the slower pace of Autumn.  The combination of Yin, Reiki and essential oils creates an experience that provides stress relief while uplifting the spirit.

Practicing yin nourishes your joints, lightens your breath, and leaves you with a deep sense of calm. Yin is an ideal balance to the active and stressful activities that fill our daily lives, so it’s a wonderful complement to any fitness routine. No yoga experience required. We will spend most of our practice on the mat supported by yoga props.

The stillness of yin poses provides the ideal complement for receiving Reiki healing energy from Reiki Master Lola Kennedy.  We’ll apply several essential oils that are ideal for this season of reflection and stillness. The combination of healing energy, luscious scents and stretches will leave you both soothed and rejuvenated!

About the Instructor
Barb Rogers is a self-proclaimed “late bloomer" in yoga. She has always flirted with the idea of yoga, but began a serious practice when an injury made it no longer safe to practice long distance running. At the age of 36, she attended her first yoga class, and with her “do the things you love with great passion” attitude, she knew that this was an amazing gift and was determined to help others find it. In 2015, she began the journey to become a registered yoga teacher (200 hour) through Be the Love Yoga School. In 2017, Barb attended specialized training to teach children’s yoga though Kidding Around Yoga (30 hrs), and Radiant Child Yoga (30 hours) . Barb was awarded the Rachel Greene Memorial grant from Kripalu, which helped fund this training.

“Yoga brightened my spirit, and connected my mind, body and soul. It heightened my mental state of being, making me an all-around better person. Yoga is for everyBody and creates a great feeling of freedom,” says Barb. “Teaching children yoga was a natural transition since I’ve been working with them for the past 14 years as a classroom teacher and currently as a Reading Recovery teacher.”

Northern Life Yoga is pleased to partner with Be The Love Yoga School (Yoga Roots, Petoskey, Michigan) to offer a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program. To learn more about the next dates this program will be offered in Sault Ste. Marie or Petoskey, kindly contact Tiffany Lenau.
