Sunday, January 31st, join us for a very special, healing and restorative yoga event as Amy Gerow, Reiki healer, esthetician and intuitive offers hands on healing while I guide restorative yoga and meditation. 
All postures will be restorative in the classic sense, supported by props and held for minutes at a time. Aromatherapy is optional including three choices of essential oil for muscle and nerve health, female hormone balance, or cheering and lightening. You'll wear a patch so the scents will not be intrusive for the rest of the room. 
Sound healing includes bowls and tuning forks that resonate to the tissues, organs and bones of the body with vibration. This is a very special event requiring pre-registration and capped at 20 participants.
2 hours of self care and relaxation.

Scarborough Yoga 1-3 pm $50
