Holiday Season, family-focused yoga: The purpose of these two-hour classes led by Marcia Camino and Michelle Moos is to provide pregnant women in all trimesters time to deeply relax and connect with their babies. Through the practice of yoga and Reiki, women and their babies can experience a sense of tranquility.
Marcia will lead participants through a yoga sequence of breath work, stretching, guided imagery, and relaxation with the help of bolsters, blankets, eye pillows, and aromatherapy for a complete immersion into serenity. During relaxation, Michelle will provide each participant with approximately ten minutes of Reiki.
Reiki, a light-touch or no-touch healing modality, is a Japanese word meaning “universal life force energy.” Often, our bodies’ naturally flowing energy centers become blocked due to emotional and/or physical issues. Reiki clears, strengthens, and heals energy pathways, allowing energy to flow in a healthy and natural way. During pregnancy, the mother and the baby reap Reiki’s many benefits; anecdotal evidence shows that treatment alleviates the discomforts of pregnancy, eases the pain of childbirth, and may even decrease the duration of labor.
