A Natural Way to Clean Your Yoga Mat!

i Apr 4th No Comments by
  • If your mat is super cruddy, gently scrub it with a paste of baking soda and water (just mix until the paste is like toothpaste), and then rinse clean with water.
  • If you need deep disinfectant, wash with half white vinegar and half water, then rinse well with water.
  • For daily cleansing, use one quart of distilled (or boiled) water in a spray bottle with 20 drops of lemon essential oil or sweet orange essential oil (or both). Spray and wipe.

Tip: Never roll up your mat wet!

Join us in our creative approach to this classic Usui training.

Reiki Training Level 1 – March  14-15

Reiki Training Level 2 – March 16-17

Reiki is a practice of Energy Medicine, which was formalized in Japan but has ancient roots throughout Asia and the Middle East. Reiki energy is transferred via laying on of the hands. This Reiki training is Usui/Takata lineage; you receive a certification upon completion.

Reiki I training initiates you into the practice, and you finish as a Reiki practitioner, with an understanding of the history and philosophy of Reiki, and ready to practice on yourself and others.

Reiki II training deepens your practice, initiating you into the use and understanding of sacred Reiki symbols used to intensify energy transmission, distance heal, and work more deeply on shifting mental and emotional patterns.

We cover not only the classic teachings of these two levels of Reiki, but also incorporate other helpful techniques and practices, like working with the chakras, how to use crystals, work with affirmations, and more. The course is also unique in its use of creative art and expression (drawing, movement, writing, etc.) as a tool to help us move and understand energy.

*Students decide for themselves if they want to participate in level one or both levels. If a student already has been initiated into level one with another teacher or institution, we ask them to sit in on our level one before proceeding with level two.

About Ayur-Yoga Massage

Ayur-Yoga massage is a therapeutic bodywork technique originated from India. It stems from the fusion of Yoga (Asanas) and Ayurveda (abhyanga & herbal medicine).

The massage is given on a mattress on the floor and applied with warm oil (sesame seed oil) and herbal powder (calamus powder). Deep and penetrating strokes are combined with yoga stretches, tractions, torsions and the pressure of energetic points (marmas) to stimulate the body, eliminate tensions, to correct and realign one´s body posture. It opens the body, balances the nervous system, regulates the function of all physiological systems and helps to renew the flow of energy in the body so one can find a natural balance.
The course will give you the capacity and the understanding to do a full body treatment. The entire massage lasts up to 120 minutes but can be reduced according to one´s individual needs.

We do similar activities such as yoga, art and we discuss feelings and write about them their personal journals. I have had the privilage of working with these teenagers and it has been such a gift! They are so excited to be at the House and we are so excited to share with them and help them to recognize and remember the Light that they are!

Healing House Wellness Fair

i Jul 27th No Comments by

We at the Healing House are having our monthly Wellness Fair on November the 18th. We will be featuring our therapists and teachers and offering free classes and treatments to our local community and tourist alike. We will start the day with an hour long asana practice followed by accupuncture, massage, and reflexology treatments. After a short break for lunch, our guests will have the opportunity to consult with our therapists including ayurvedic consultations. We will finish the day with Kundalini practice and a pilates series.

Our intention with this Wellness Fair is to bring new light and awareness to our local Cusquenian community so that we can share with them all that we have to offer. All Cusquenians have the opportunity to take regularly scheduled yoga and pilates free of charge, as well as receive treatments for free or for need based situations, however even with this golden opportunity, we are just not receiving the showing we would like. We hope that with this event, and continuing monthly events we can work to heal our community so in return they can heal others.
