Psst... Did you know? Reiki infused Yin/Restorative Yoga is becoming a new thing! Why you may ask? Well here's the skinny:)
What is Yin/Restorative Yoga:
There really isn't much difference between Yin and Restorative. During Yin each posture is normally done down on the floor, (but may also include some standing poses.) A lot of props such as pillows, blocks, bolsters, etc. can be used to help support the body in each pose which can last anywhere from 3-5 minutes, but depending on the focus of the class or the teacher can be a little more challenging with fewer props. Restorative Yoga is where the entire class is done down on the mat and the body is completely supported and comfortable with the use of props.
The Benefits of Both Yin and Restorative Yoga:
Calms and balances the mind and body
Reduces stress and anxiety
Improves joint mobility
Balances the internal organs
Improves the flow of energy (chi or prana)
What is Reiki and Some Benefits
Universal life force. That is the definition of Reiki. In a nutshell, it is taking the universal energy (whether it be a Reiki practitioner or self-Reiki) that surrounds all of us and of which we have infinite availability and using that to our physiological and energetic advantage. A few of the many benefits of Reiki: (You can read a more complete list here.)

The Benefits of Mixing Reiki and Yoga:
Mixing Reiki healing with yin yoga has unending benefits. There really isn't anything I can think of that this practice would not be good for. A lot of people who have chronic injuries will seek out both Restorative yoga and Reiki individually, as well as those who are suffering from stress, anxiety, and depression, and everything in-between. Bringing the two practices together can spark a substantially profound healing effect in the body, mind, and spirit.
