Hi, my name is Helen Mallory. I am very happy to be offering guided meditations at Yoga Vie studio! Meditation is the best way that I know of to calm the mind and restore inner peace. Wednesdays (mid week) are the perfect opportunity to catch one’s breath and prepare mentally, physically and emotionally for the remainder of the week and possibly into the weekend.
A bit about who I am and what I do: Currently, I am a practicing Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki Master and Teacher. Over the years Reiki has offered me many gifts of personal healing and I have been honored to be a part of helping others on their healing path as well. I received my first attunement to Reiki 12 years ago and have not looked back. Reiki had been introduced to me because I was very ill with stomach dis-orders and anxiety, the Reiki along with a diet change healed me heal in record time! Sharing this beautiful, healing energy by offering sessions and classes to others is what I love doing. There are always powerful, positive results for my students and clients. Reiki compliments all forms of healing by bringing up imbalances in the body, mind and spirit to release and then clears the negative energy bringing a sense of calmness and well being. It works Holistically – Physically, Mentally, Emotionally and Spiritually. Meditation is a huge part of healing and Reiki. I truly feel if everybody meditated daily the world would be a much more peaceful place because we would all be in touch with who were truly are: Spiritual Beings having a human experience.
