HEAL YOUR JOINTS with Carrie Varela

Modern life can be tough on your joints. As you age, joints lose elasticity and can become centers for pain and inflammation, especially as we work longer hours and engage in high intensity sports and exercise. In this workshop, you will learn simple and effective yoga movements which support joint health and restoration. In addition, you will be led through a guided Reiki meditation which will inspire feelings of peace, security, and well being as you center your mind and spirit.

  • Learn how to support and heal your joints through therapeutic yoga

  • Experience the benefits of meditation: clear your mind, process old emotions, and deeply relax

  • Develop practices to maintain and strengthen joint health throughout your life

Join Carrie Varela, E-RYT 200 and Reiki Master through a healing exploration of the major joints of the body.  Using a combination of yoga therapeutics, yin yoga and guided Reiki meditation, Carrie will guide you through a nurturing and holistic sequence designed to heal and support the basic function of your joints.  Suitable for any level of yogic practitioner.

JOURNEY TO THE SPIRIT | SACRED SOUND HEALING FOR THE BODY AND SOUL

Quantum physics has proven that everything has a vibration, especially in sound. When we use sound coupled with intention, we can direct sound vibration to raise the body’s vibrational frequency. Negative energy can make us physically ill or emotionally depressed and restrict our ability to reach our full physical, spiritual and mental health. By using singing bowls, we emit a soothing vibration that radiates out negative energy and allows your to live in harmony with your surrounding environment.

• Clear your chakras and release negative energy through the vibration of sound

• Heighten your intuition and improve concentration

• Reduce your stress levels and enhance your creativity

Rebecca Butler is a humble and happy yoga teacher (at the RYT 500 hour level), writer, inspirational speaker, retreat leader and entrepreneur as well as a mom. In addition to teaching in festivals and conferences, she travels teaching her weekend of Choose Joy yoga workshops in varying cities all over the country. It is her intention for her classes to render her students physically satiated and spiritually uplifted, her writing to spark your soul and her inspirational speaking to awaken you to your purpose within. It is her own purpose to help others recognize the ability to Choose Joy no matter what life offers.

In 2012, her mother passed from ALS or Lou Gehrig╩╝s disease. In that heart-wrenching journey, Rebecca learned that life is meant to be cherished, never squandered; movement, health and breath are righteous gifts to be celebrated, never neglected; and kindness, love and grace are the only admirable ways of being. She integrates this wisdom into her teaching, writing, speaking and daily approach to life. Her impending book, Choose Joy — The Keys to Living a Life You Love encapsulates all of this wisdom as well.

You can find out more about her teaching & writing at www.rebeccabutleryoga.com, or connect with her on facebook or twitter or Instagram
