Bring your beach towels, props, shawls and pillow for sunset and stargazing. This is done lying down in silence and stillness, making it accessible to many. If lying down is not accessible to you, bring a beach chair.
This is a unique journey that Swan Michelle created and has been doing since 2012, like no other. It has helped clear thousands of beings in the sweetness of art, music and harmony.
Being connected to nature as to listen to the sacredness of the pure vibrational frequencies and tones, the elements, sun, moon, and stars will transform and transport you.

Introduction to the deep, nourishing, inner practices that promote an adaptable immune system, emotional stability, stress and anxiety reduction, noise resiliency and the rest and digest state for optimal health.

This 1 day retreat will promote you checking in instead of getting caught up in business and further habituating your tendency to check out.

It will be an entire day of some very diverse practices in Energy work, Breathing exercises, withdraw of the senses, Yoga Nidra, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Meditation.

We will take moments to discuss some of the neurological benefits of these practices, the effects of stress, how to reduce anxiety and how to be more at ease in stillness. We will introduce you to the mythology of Yoga Nidra, the background of Yin and the pre-cursors to being able to sit still in meditation,making this wonderful for yoga teachers so that you have a language to promote stillness in your students.

We will also primarily do these practices and let ourselves BE, reminding us all that we are the IN-dweller. We have permission to slow down, to let go, to reduce and to refrain for health purposes, not as a form of avoidance at all!

Put down the tasks. Let go of the doer ship. You need this. If you need more time, slow down! These practices will remind you of how important this is to add to your daily habits and routines



***NOTE: "Total Slow Down" is part 1 of Swan Michelle's Yoga Nidra Teacher Training. If you would like to be certified in Yoga Nidra, this is the beginning! Please join us!

Master Reiki Training with Diane Ferguson

with Diane Roll Ferguson at URU Yoga - Gulf Breeze
Saturday, January 29 9:00 am – 5:30 pm

Master Reiki Training with Diane Ferguson
Saturday January 29 2022 9AM-1PM, 4:30-5:30PM via Zoom

Investment: $200

Deposit of $50 is required by Dec. 20th to reserve your space.

The emphasis of this Master Level training will be the introduction to the Reiki Master symbol that will intensify the other Reiki symbols. This course will include a Reiki Master Attunement, techniques for hand placement, distance healing, energizing spaces, and creating a clearer connection with life force energy.

Reiki Master Training certification is required to teach Reiki to others. Reiki I and Reiki II certification is a prerequisite for this course.

The Reiki attunement is what makes Reiki unique to other forms of healing touch and energy work. This ceremony, called Reiju (Ray-joo) in Japanese, is performed by the Reiki Master and opens and expands the main energy channels of the student's body, allowing universal energy, also known as Qi/Chi/Ki, to flow more freely and deeply.

Because of this opening process, the attunement also does what Reiki is meant to do — clear blockages. As a result, this can create significant energy changes within the individual and many will undergo an intense period of self-growth. Often, innate intuition and other gifts are more easily accessed.

Diane Ferguson is an Usui Ryoho Reiki Level III Master Teacher who began her study of Reiki in 2014 and has been working with others in this healing modality since 2015. Diane believes that the power of Reiki is limitless and can be applied to nearly every facet of your life. Diane is also a yoga instructor, Certified Health Coach, retreat facilitator, and ordained Minister.
