What we're about

Those who join this group should have a desire to create union and awareness between body, mind, spirit and breath through the practices of Yoga, Thai Therapy, Meditation, Exercise, Aromatherapy and Reiki.

Below is a description of the healing practices that will be offered, along with group yoga, reiki, fitness and meditation classes.

Kripalu means “being compassionate” in Sanskrit, and compassion for oneself and others lies at the heart of Kripalu Yoga. Kripalu Yoga emphasizes and expands the intuition we all have within to listen to our body,breath and spirit. It cultivates non-judgement awareness and teaches us that our body is unique and special. Practicing Kripalu Yoga and developing this non-judgmental witness consciousness helps your ability to consciously choose how to act on thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Heal your body, mind and spirit and return to your true nature with the practice of Kripalu Yoga, which extends off the mat and into every aspect of your life.

The tradition, named for Swami Kripalu, was brought to the United States by Kripalu’s disciple in the 1960′s. Kripalu yoga is considered “the yoga of life” because the practice integrates the many types of yoga: bhakti, karma, jhana and hatha. Yoga asana (postures), pranayama (breathing), ethics, philosophy, and meditation. Today the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in Stockbridge, MA sustains the Kripalu lineage.

Reiki is a gentle, noninvasive, hands on therapy that is deeply relaxing and assists with healing the whole person. Reiki, a Japanese word meaning universal life force energy, is a simple, natural, and safe method that treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit. It creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation, balance, and feelings of peace, and wellbeing. One most likely will experience the feeling of a deep relaxation, warmth and calmness during and after a Reiki treatment.

Thai Yoga Therapy is an ancient healing art rooted in the practice of metta (loving kindness). Thai Yoga uses energy lines and points in the body that treat a whole range of diseases, relieves muscle and joint pain, frees energetic blockages in the body, stimulates the proper flow of prana (breath) and help restore general well-being. It works the entire body, creating a flowing dance between the giver and the receiver and leaves you feeling relaxed and revitalized. Thai bodywork takes place fully clothed and a session generally lasts 90 minutes, although variations are available to suit the individual’s needs.

AromaTouch Technique is a clinical approach to applying essential oils along energy meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body. AromaTouch Technique improves well-being by reducing physical and emotional stressors and by supporting healthy autonomic function. The technique uses doTERRA’s CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade™ essential oils for an unparalleled grounding experience for recipients. The AromaTouch Technique includes four primary steps designed to minimize systemic stressors to autonomic balance. Each step includes the application of two essential oils or essential oil blends specifically formulated to support healthy emotional and physiological functions for wellbeing.

Neuro-Science of How to Release Pain

Location visible to members

$20.00

Every one of us has experienced pain. Some pain is good and some pain is bad. Good pain warns you to stop an activity and avoid causing further damage. For instance, touch a hot burner and your unconscious mind will automatically and instantly withdraw your body from this threat. Once the tissues have healed, usually within a short period of time, the pain subsides and you get on with your life. Bad pain, what is medically described as chronic pain, will persist long after the tissues have healed and the causation of pain is removed. Chronic pain is an empirical medical catastrophe. The medical “Biomechanical” model of pain has failed to eliminate chronic pain and created the Opioid crisis. The latest breakthrough in the Neuro-Science of Pain teaches us that pain is actually a psychological and emotional experience as well as a physical experience. Join us as we learn and practice natural, drug-free, and surgery-free methods for eliminating and releasing pain NOW! Bring your mat, wear comfortable clothing for movement, and join us as you will learn to RELEASE YOUR PAIN. Dr. Bruce Costello is a national presenter on Bodywork & Healing. He has 40+ years experience as a massage therapist, chiropractor, personal trainer, exercise specialist and health and wellness coach. FREE Miracle Healing Tool to first 10 participants. $20.00 for workshop.
