Yoga, Reiki & Personalized Healing on the Hudson River
Welcome! I spent over a decade creating advertising campaigns for iconic Fortune 500 brands before realizing I wasn't meant to spend my life convincing people they were lacking something they could buy; I wanted to help people identify with their innate wholeness and worth.
THE OSHA RUAH PHILOSOPHY
Osha (Sanskrit: shining, burning)
Ruah (Hebrew: spirit, breath)
Did you know that your physical body, surrounded by your energetic and subtle bodies, is an outer expression and experience modality for something incredibly precious? Your original shining spirit, the pure you, your guiding light, your fearless higher self that is whole, and is not wounded by the unpredictable sharp edges of life.
This shining spirit knows its purpose, is secure in its truth and timelessness, and radiates an unconditional love that heals everyone in its orbit. Together, we embark on a journey to rediscover, empower and live from that true self.
It is a special path of deep learning and growth, but when we live from our shining spirit, we live in our optimal health and wellbeing.
Reiki Energy Balancing
Let’s be honest: coming to a place of peace, harmony and loving acceptance is not an easy road. Reiki energy healing is a strong supplement to your physical yoga practice.
Reiki, an ancient spiritual healing art, was developed in the 1920s by Mikao Usui of Kyoto, Japan. Reiki is the Japanese word for ‘universal life energy.’ Everything is made of this energy, it surrounds us, and we can channel it to enhance and accelerate physical and emotional healing and balance.
I am 6th generation certified and attuned in the direct lineage of Usui. It is a very specific and powerful partnership with life force energy that flows through the practitioner's hands to work with the subject’s own higher consciousness to bring exactly the energy needed to precise areas of the body and chakra system.
The thoughtful combination of yoga and individual reiki sessions, geared to your specific goals, can create major transformations from the inside out.
Somatic Trauma Release
The past year has been pretty traumatic for all of us on many levels. Many of us have had more time and space than usual, or at least a degree of isolation from people and normalcy, that has allowed us to notice difficult memories, unhealed wounds and unattended, hidden pain.
Personalized, private trauma healing is a combination of yoga, reiki and movement-based somatic release specifically and carefully crafted for each individual. Trauma stays in our bodies after an event, and can cause anxiety, depression and illness.
Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and Dr. Peter Levine have conducted highly-regarded research showing that we can release this tension and stress through movement, breath and sound, allowing our bodies to carry out the self-protection we were prohibited from during the traumatic event, no matter how long ago it was. Having studied their methods, I work with clients to create a plan for traumatic release through yoga, guided meditation, breath work, reiki, chakra work, mantra, and movement.
You are not alone on your journey. You are the rays of the sun that is divine presence and light. You can restore and live from your shining spirit. We hope you’ll join us!
It’s been a tough year, and we all need and deserve self-care. If a financial situation keeps you from class, please email Jenni@OshaRuah.com.
