Philosophy and Comments
"He/She who does not venture does not cross the Sea"
"Moira provides the Sauk Valley with such wonderful yoga and a beautiful and convenient studio. I’ve experienced very tangible benefits from the start! Some of these include alleviating my TMJ pain, as well as I am stronger and faster swimming laps. I am amazed at the improvement I see each time, even if just a little. Instead of saying I can’t do it I now try to say I’m not there yet as Moira suggested- which I love!"- Vicki McConnell
"I SO enjoyed your workshop today. I especially loved the openness and interaction--so missing from many workshops. And it is all due to your presentation and your acceptance of what comes at you. I feel blessed to have been with you today. Thank you. You are a teacher's teacher, and we all need those." - Jill Browne
"I’m always a little concerned when workshops take me out of my comfort zone, but Moira's workshop made me feel at ease; especially with the meditation at the beginning. Moira goes at a pace that allows you to adjust to the pose and offers plenty of suggestions for tweaking. Practicing with Moira is about as good as it gets."
- Ralph Hannon
Upcoming Reiki Trainings

Learning to treat others with Reiki will be the major focus of the class with a good portion of the class devoted to hands on practice with a partner. Grounding, clearing and shielding skills will be refined so one can set boundaries, operate more smoothly in the world and be less effected by toxins in our environment. Students will be introduced to the pendulum and other diagnostic techniques. Energy scanning and sweeping will be practiced. Participants will be attuned to additional Reiki symbols that further strengthen one's power to heal.
$150 per level (manual & certificate included), payment due 5 days prior, minimum 3
*Any of Moira’s previous Reiki students may repeat for half price
