Offerings of Yoga Meditation & Reiki
by: Susan Orrico -Duffy
I am a graduate of the Integral Yoga Institute, Virginia, class of winter 2012 and a registered member of the Yoga Alliance.
Modern life is often demanding and disconnects us from what is most important. Yoga and meditation can assist you in reconnecting you to your Source.
In 2019 I was attuned to Reiki Master. Reiki uses the universal life-force energy to bring healing to the whole person. It does this, in harmony with the natural intelligence of the mind and body, which work together to preserve and protect health and increase well being.
Additionally, I hold certifications in Accessible Yoga, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Restorative Yoga with Thai Touch, Meditation, Yoga Nidra and Children's Yoga.
It is my belief that Yoga is designed to bring together the mind, body and soul by using body movement and meditation. It is based on the yogic strategy that the mind and body are in fact “One”. I believe that if you practice yoga every day over a long period of time in earnest, it can help bring the body to reach a place of harmony and heal itself.
Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don't only give your care, but give your heart as well

Join me, Susan Orrico Duffy E-RYT for Restorative Yoga Teacher Training:
Restorative yoga is a "yummy" practice, a treat, like a massage or mani pedi. When we practice Restorative Yoga the body is in passive postures supported by props using no muscular effort. We are releasing muscular and inner tension. The mind becomes spacious and the body receptive. The body shifts from the sympathetic nervous system- fight and flight - to the para-sympathetic nervous system- rest and digest. It is here, where the body begins to restore itself. Restorative poses help the relaxation respond to kick in, balancing the nervous system and optimizing energy flow to our organs. The body is set up for deep restoration, weightless, growth and repair. Restorative Yoga helps relieve the effects of chronic stress and move the spine in all directions to promote greater well-being.
