An energy attunement sounds appropriate today. Maybe it's just me, but I get in such a funk when my schedule is thrown off. So two two-hour delays, a rainy day and one of my kids having the flu makes for a weird start of a brand new week. But regardless of my personal feelings regarding the weather and germs, we are inundated with good news about Sol Space. Our first week of open studio hours has taken off to a slow start due to weather, but we're doing it. And we're excited to offer the space for people to share. And our first meditative art class is tonight! Richelle's been putting together a playlist and gathering materials. All you need to do is show up and take advantage of what's planned to help you find your zen.
Speaking of finding your zen, you've heard us saying that we are going to start offering Reiki at Sol Space. And you might even have been curious about who is offering it, what their availability looks like and what it's going to cost.
If you aren't familiar with reiki, it's what people would call, "energy work." The practitioner works with your body's energy to promote healing and relaxation. This can be done hands on or hands off depending on client and practitioner preference. And it's a really wonderful way to unwind and bring peace into our chaotic lives.
An attunement (which is what a session is typically called) lasts one hour. And here at Sol Space, we are offering it on a sliding scale. You can either pay 40, 50 or 60 dollars depending on your financial need/ability.
We've got two practitioners. Both are absolutely wonderful people and you can even find them teaching yoga at various times during the week. Sharyn teaches the midweek reboot class on Wednesdays at 7p and Saturday morning vinyasa at 8:30a and Christie starts teaching gentle flow next week on Tuesdays at 9:30a!
Sharyn is a second-degree reiki healer, registered 200-hour yoga teacher, and also holds certifications in yin yoga and yoga for kids.
Sharyn found her way to reiki through practicing yoga and meditation. She began to listen to the messages her body was gifting and the energy it was emitting, reminding her that our bodies are intelligent vessels connected to mind and spirit.
Sharyn’s reiki sessions center around helping individuals connect with themselves and higher consciousness on deeper levels. A session with Sharyn is a time for relaxation, integration and raising vibrations. Clients lay clothed on a massage table and receive energy transmitted through a hands-on (or off) healing practice.
Within deep relaxation we give space for subtle energies to be felt; through the tuning of energy we allow messages from higher dimensions to integrate into our consciousness. It's a process of gentle exploration and cultivation of self and raising vibrations to be in tune with higher life force energy. When we create sacred space for care and exploration we open the pathway to living life more alive and in tune, with ourselves and our communities. We shift the dynamic from surviving to thriving, from restriction to infinite expansion and possibility.
Sharyn was attuned by Shalini Breault, Reiki Master-Teacher in the Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method and is honored to be a part of the vibrant and inclusive healing community that is Sol Space. Sharyn looks forward to helping you on your journey.
Christie has loved yoga since taking her first class in 2000. The connection between physical movement, energetic shifts and spirituality inspired her further exploration of the practice.
In 2011 Christie received her 200 hour Vinyasa teacher training certification at Yogawood with Beth Filla and Lisa Korchma. In the years following Christie practiced with yoga teachers and at studios throughout the Philadelphia area getting to know them and their teaching styles. Being exposed to an incredibly diverse array of practices including Anusara, Ashtanga, Jivamukti, Kundalini, Power Yoga, Restorative, and Yin Yoga helped her shape Christie’s own yogic path.
Since then her education has been ongoing and building speed with an emphasis on; the teacher's voice, working with private clients of varying experience, senior citizens and understanding the demographic of students coming to open studio classes.
In 2017 she finished up a two year study commitment that culminated in a 500 Hour Certification at Yogawood primarily lead by Hari Kirtana Das and Marni Scarloff. This advanced study explored in-depth yogic philosophy and support in practical teaching. Soon after Christie completed the 500 hours of “in class” teaching to become an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT 500).
Christie draws upon her Vinyasa background to lead a class with breath inspired movement, focused alignment cues, mindful instruction and a generous sprinkle of yoga philosophy and reiki. Her classes offer space to learn how we can utilize our own energy and vibration.
Christie is a dedicated student. Breathwork, meditation, mantra work accompany her asana practice and heavily influence her teaching style. She closely values the eight limbs of yoga on and off of the mat and hopes to inspire her students to do the same in order to develop a deeper understanding of their own practices.
Christie started out skeptical when it came to Reiki Healing. However, after receiving a few Reiki sessions, it was clear her connection to energy was palpable. Following years of study of the energetic body through the chakra system, she completed her Reiki Master attunement in October 2018 with Barbara Paulson.
Christie will work with clients individually to assess any disruption in energy fields with a goal of finding balance. She is honored and delighted to connect with the Sol Space community.
