10:00am - 6:00pm both days


This training is open to all yoga teachers, as well as curious students.

Do you use a specific method to sequence your yoga classes? Do you know why you've chosen each pose?

- A review of Vinyasa Krama (stages/ progressions) for intermediate and advanced asana
- How to support the nervous system in the lunar portion of a vinyasa yoga practice


Both days begin with a long yoga practice, followed by discussion. Afternoons include lecture, group work, teaching practice, discussion, and the opportunity to receive feedback. This training includes 4 hours of homework that must be submitted in order to receive certificate of completion.

Pre-requisite 1st Degree

Reiki in the second degree takes your practice to another level and working with the sacred symbols takes you further into your own unique Reiki journey. In this one-day certificate class you will be learning and working with symbols that enhance the use of Reiki energy. These symbols carry different elements that you will learn to apply to a Reiki session. You will also learn how to send Reiki via distance, which can be helpful to send to people and situations we can’t physically be with. You will also discover how to feel for and help bring balance to the Chakra system during a Reiki session. 

You will have the opportunity to connect with the symbols and practice all you learn by giving a complete Reiki session. You in turn will also receive one from your fellow student. There is one attunement during the day that helps connect you to the symbols and seal them into your Reiki experience taking your Reiki practice to a deeper level.  

Individual classes and classes of 2 are available.

Pre-requisite 1st and 2nd Degree


Reiki in the third degree is advanced Reiki training and is regarded as the “Personal Master” level of Reiki. This level focuses on you as the individual and exploring your connection with oneness and universal energy. Reiki in the third degree has a strong possibility of turning the focus inward to your own healing, in turn helping empower you to help others with their individual journeys with Reiki, whether you decide to take the teacher training or not. Everyone we meet, everyone we touch through Reiki benefits and in this class, you will become aware of the profound impact Reiki can have on us those around us. Students often find this level of Reiki helps lead them to a place of deep inner peace and clarity.

Prior to this class there is an assignment to be completed. There is no right or wrong answers it just acts as a piece of information for you the student to reflect on all you have learned and for me the teacher to understand where you are with Reiki in your life.

This class will cover the following topics and is taught in two six hour days.

-Be attuned to the Master Symbol which unlocks the full potential of Reiki energy and has the possibility of deep healing for self and others.

-Learn meditative techniques to develop a clear channel to expand your consciousness and become one with the Master Symbol and universal energy. 

-More in-depth information will be covered regarding the Chakra System, how it becomes unbalanced and different ailments connected to these Chakra imbalances. Different techniques will be discussed on working with the Chakra system for ourselves and those that we give Reiki to.

-Learn different methods to create a sacred space for Reiki practice and sessions. You will participate in the process of how to set up the space for the day’s class to immerse yourself in the learning experience.

-As with all the other levels you will have the opportunity to give and receive a Reiki session, using the Master Symbol and all you have learned.

-Ongoing support following the class via email or phone to help support you in your Reiki journey.


Pre-requisite 1st, 2nd and 3rd Degree

This is a unique one on one mentoring program to develop your confidence to cultivate the art of teaching Reiki and learning how to guide others along their Reiki journeys. This will be completed in approximately 1 year but extra time is encouraged if necessary to ensure you are feeling ready to step into the role of a Reiki teacher.


Learning is done self-paced and self-development is required with your own relationship with Reiki. How this can be achieved is in multiple ways, we will work together to see what works for you based on your own beautiful individuality.


Monthly in person meetings will be conducted to check in with your progress, discuss any concerns and go over monthly assignments. Assignments will be individualized to your learning needs and together we will identify where these needs lie.  You will both watch and then participate in teaching a Degree one, two and three class. You will be given all the notes required to teach Reiki confidently and thoroughly.


My goal is to support you in your desire to teach Reiki and help you work towards being ready and confident to do so. Teaching the sacred art of Reiki is an honour and your unique path will draw those you are meant to teach to you. I want to help you uncover your stepping stones and find your way.
