First Degree Reiki Training
Keely Garfield 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm $275 Early Bird / $300 after Sept 30 View More
Reiki is a healing therapy that promotes vitality and harmony – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Reiki creates a profound sense of wellbeing by gently encouraging the body’s own innate capacity to release tension, experience relaxation, feel centered, and find natural alignment. Non-invasive and suitable for everyone, Reiki can reduce pain, anxiety, and depression, aid sleep, improve digestion, respiration and circulation, alleviate symptoms of acute and chronic conditions, and enhance self-awareness. Reiki is simple to learn and can be used in conjunction with other modalities such as restorative yoga and aromatherapy.
First Degree Reiki is for those who wish to learn how to practice Reiki for themselves and others. This training includes Reiki attunement, discourse on philosophical and historical background, mindfulness exercises, clear instruction on practice, and guidance on how to work with this subtle and profound Universal Life Force healing energy.
Due to limited class size there are no refunds or cancelations after Sept 30th, 2017.

w/ Raghunath 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm $45 / $40 Infinity View More
Maha Sadhana Yoga Class, Pranayama & Stories from the Gita and beyond.
Raghunath tells stories like no other. You will be inspired while you laugh until your face hurts.
Raghunath is… Ex-punk, ex-monk, husband, father of five, inversion ambassador, bent on Bhakti, detox junkie, evolution assistant, coalesced by kirtan, cacao consumer, puranic story teller, reciter of Gita, potential excavator, beyond birth and death. He is prana hunter, animal friendly, transcendence in training, born to give – to live today; full contact fighter, devours durians, loves to chant, likes a challenge, servant of the servants, harmonium hugger, conscious of Krishna.
Raghunath born Ray Cappo was a Lower East Side hardcore-punk singer songwriter icon, touring the globe in his teens. In a decadent music scene infested with hard drugs, negativity and intoxication he was an anomaly and a light propounding clean living, positive attitude and vegetarian lifestyle, inspiring tens of thousands of fans internationally. Since his youth he was fascinated with Eastern thought and took his inspiration from Emerson, Ghandi, Thoreau, The Buddhist Sutras, The Bible and the Bhagavad Gita. He started practicing yoga in NYC in 1987 with the esteemed Sri Dharma Mittra as well as Shivananada Yoga. The pettiness of the business of music and the untimely death of his father led him to India in 1988 where he dove deeper into the lifestyle and spirituality of India. He became a celibate monk at a Krishna Bhakti Ashram for 6 years where he intensely studied, meditated and lived the ancient yogic texts. In 1991 in the sacred village of Vrindavan he was awarded the name Raghunath and two years later in that same holy town awarded diksha or the sacred thread, for his study. Now, 23 years later, he’s an accomplished yogi in many styles, and married with five children. He leads retreats, workshops and yoga teacher trainings around the world. He is an expert at taking the esoteric yoga philosophy and making it understandable and practical for the contemporary world.
