Workshop Schedule

Workshops are typically longer classes in order to go into more depth for the specific topic.

They are usually held on Friday nights, Saturdays, and Sundays.  If interested, sign up below!


Rock, Squat and Roll with Dina Crosta

In this playful and educational class, Dina is inviting students to remember dynamic movement that is both practical and fun. Often times there are movements that our physiology is designed to do but have been lost or undeveloped due to lots of environmental circumstances. Let’s reclaim some of the basic ways that our bodies truly crave to move. Being willing to get up and down from the floor and to potentially feel awkward are good starting points for this class.

Compassionate Reiki 1

Compassionate Touch Reiki 1 with Grace Conte
Reiki is a practice intended to promote the health and well-being of individuals and our world.
It is a Japanese word, formed from the separate words rei and ki. While these words have a variety of meanings, in the context of healing, rei is understood as the
universal spirit, higher self or God-consciousness, while ki is the life force energy that flows through all living things.
In its most basic form, reiki involves the gentle placement
of hands in various positions on, or just above, the fully clothed body of the person receiving reiki.
Through this laying on of hands, the reiki practitioner seeks to facilitate the rebalancing of the energy system, thereby strengthening the body’s ability to heal and self-regulate. Since reiki is known to reduce stress, it can be used as a preventative approach to self-care.

The First Degree Training includes:
*An Explanation of What is Reiki, the History of Reiki, the Benefits of Reiki, and
how the chakra energy system relates to Reiki
*Receiving a Reiki Attunement with an overview of the twenty-one day cleanse
and how to promote personal wellness in regard to your Reiki practice
*An instructional experience of giving and receiving a full Reiki treatment
*An overview of the self-Reiki protocol with actual hands-on work
*Discussion of what to look for in a Reiki Practitioner and an understanding of
how best to establish your Reiki practice
*A take-home manual of your First Degree Training
