Reiki can be an icing on your yoga classes: providing Reiki as a healing component of savasana, offering Reiki during Restorative classes, or during lovely holds in Yin Yoga. Becoming a Reiki practitioner is a great way to supplement your income as a yoga teacher, while keeping to a holistic system of balance & healing.Most profoundly, the path of Reiki attunes you to accessing your Highest Self and is a tremendous assist on your path of awakening!​
