Reiki Healing

reiki

 

Reiki Healing is a form of energy sessions of Japanese origin that is effective on physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels.  Stress, physical and emotional trauma and illness curb the natural flow of “Ki” – life force energy through the body.  By restoring the flow of “Ki” in the body, Reiki revives the body’s ability to relax and de-stress, and wholly supports its ability to heal itself.

Reiki (ray-ki) is an ancient energy healing modality using the universal life force to effectively balance and heal the mind, body and spirit. This powerful form of alternative medicine enhances the body’s ability to relax and heal itself after becoming stressed, encountering trauma and creating a state of dis-ease while restoring Ki (life force energy) into your body, balancing the chakras and removing energy blocks.

It addresses certain aspects of the mind, body and spirit in different ways and amplifies healing possibilities massively. It’s especially helpful with expediting results and removing energy blocks.

5 benefits of ballet barre Pilates

  • images

The Pilates fitness approach pioneered by Joseph Pilates has long been popular in the dance world. Ballet dancers practice Pilates because it develops core strength while promoting long, elegantly-shaped muscles.  Ballet barre Pilates is a hybrid form of Pilates practice that incorporates the barre (a stationary handrail that is used for balancing and warm-up exercises in ballet training) along with poses from yoga.

These are 5 of the benefits of ballet barre Pilates:

  1. Ballet barre Pilates is kind on joints

Many fitness approaches, including cross-training, are hard on the joints. Impact activities such as jogging contribute to joint degeneration over time, whereas ballet barre Pilates uses natural body resistance to provide a good workout that doesn’t place undue stress on the joints. This makes it especially useful as a fitness approach for dancers who wish to maintain and increase their mobility and flexibility.

  1. It offers a full workout

 The second benefit of ballet barre Pilates is that it provides a full body workout. Stretches are typically incorporated into classes to ensure that no single muscle group is overworked or inadequately warmed up.

  3. It can be modified for every experience level

Whether you have experience in ballet training or none at all, you can take part in a ballet barre Pilates class. Movements are small and easily learned but effective for toning, elongating the limbs and attaining general physical fitness.

            4. Exercises involving the barre increase core strength

Many exercises that involve the barre include corporate balancing and this helps to tone while building core strength. Building a strong core reduces your risk of injury through exercise, and has additional benefits such as improving posture.

             5.  Ballet barre Pilates combines the gracefulness of ballet with the fun                     of a workout

The steps and poses learned in ballet training are graceful and are excellent for developing good posture. Yet ballet barre classes offer the best of both worlds: The sleek elegance of ballet and the sociable workout of a group fitness class.

In addition to the five benefits outlined above, this particular type of Pilates fosters flexibility and yields rapid results. If you exercise two to four times weekly, you’re likely to see changes within a month (including improved posture, more toned thighs, arms as well as flatter abs).
