Beat Breakup with Reiki and Restorative Yoga this April! Join HeartStream yoga teacher and Reiki Healer Jasmine Johnson-Kennedy for a pair of mini-retreats. Combining the modalities of Reiki Healing and the practice of Restorative Yoga, these workshops invite you to shed the tension and stress of the long dark cold days of winter and open to the warming sun and bright joy of our Alaskan summer. Support the body and rest the mind with a restorative yoga practice and soothing music while you receive the healing energy of Reiki to nourish yourself on all levels. Restorative yoga asana are restful, long-held poses supported by props (an abundance of blankets, blocks and bolsters) that are designed to relax and nourish mind body and heart. Reiki is a gentle and profoundly restorative form of hands-on energy healing. Reiki facilitates deep relaxation and catalyzes the natural healing response. These mini-retreats are a two-for-one: not only will you get two hours of deliciously restful, rejuvenating restorative practice, you will also receive a number of mini Reiki treatments. Jasmine will guide you in a sequence of restorative yoga poses, holding each pose for 5-10 minutes in order to allow the body’s tension to melt away, the heart to open, and the mind to rest and renew. As you rest in the comfort and support of the restorative yoga poses, she will offer mini Reiki sessions to each participant in turn. Depending on the size of the class, everyone will receive Reiki 2-5 times. Jasmine will place gentle hands on head, shoulders and feet and channel the healing life-force energy of Reiki to allow you to deepen your experience and receive healing where ever it is most needed. If you’re curious about Reiki or energy work in general, this is the perfect way to explore this alternative healing modality in the safe and serene space of Heart Stream’s yoga studio. Are you feeling over-worked, stressed-out or tired? Does break up have you feeling stuck-in-the-mud? Do you long for a little peace and quiet or a private oasis? How long has it been since you’ve had some quality me-time? These mini-retreats are for you! Treat yourself to a little R&R time at Heart Stream Yoga!

Jasmine is now offering Reiki sessions in the Healing Arts Room at Heart Stream Yoga. Find out more by visiting the Healing Therapies tab and scrolling down for the full explanation, costs and contact number.

Beginner's Meditation FLYER


Donna Lanni is presenting an Ayurvedic Workshop April 5, 4-6pm.  Cost $30


 Spring is in the air and wouldn’t you like to greet it with a new YOU? This workshop will use the principles of Ayurveda, India’s ancient science of healing, to give you a glimpse of daily diet and lifestyle choices that would best suit your personal constitution or Dosha.

* Tune into areas of your health or life that may be ” out of rhythm”

*Learn and practice some of the  basic and EASY daily “yogic” routines that move you towards balance in body and mind.

*We will practice Abhyanga, the art of self-massage, to aid in removing toxins from the body leaving you relaxed, radiant and GLOWING. You will want to bring a towel and wear loose or lighter clothing that you don’t mind getting oily!



Qigong Workshop-John Flyer__Page_1

John picSifu Adams is a licensed Acupuncturist in the state of Hawaii and a certified Acupressure and Zen Shiatsu Therapist. He has been a student of the Chinese healing arts since 1980.  He is also a certified instructor of Classical Yang Style T’aijiquan and Soaring Crane Qigong.  Sifu Adams maintains a private practice in Ocean View, Hawaii, (on the Big Island) where he and his wife, Jane, reside with their 4 dogs and Scarlet, the cat.  A former Fairbanks resident, he makes regular visits to Alaska.

 For more information regarding the workshop please contact John theeyeoftheneedle@gmail.com

Qigong is the ancient Chinese art of cultivating ones qi ( life force, prana) as preventive health care, as a method of maintaining quality of life and as a spiritual practice. It is practiced to promote good health and longevity. It is the art of working one’s vital energy (qi, ki, prana, life force) along the energy pathways of the body to promote a smooth flow of qi and blood; relieving pain and dis-ease.

For me, Qigong has been a constant companion in the healing of my body and the quieting of my mind.  And through this healing journey I have discovered the value of the basics.  These are foundational understandings and practices which are necessary for the evolution of the student, regardless of the form studied.  Revisited over time and viewed from alternate perspectives as we grow, these foundational elements strengthen and hone us so we can “…return to the beginning as if for the first time”.(Thomas Elliot)  It is from this vantage that we are able to observe and guide our practice.

In this workshop I will utilize the Eight Pieces of Brocade Qigong form to present to the student the fundamental principles from which to practice Qigong.  The form is easy to learn and presented with much-hands on practice.  Some necessary theory will be presented but for the most part we will practice Qigong.

There are many names and many differing forms presented in the world today known as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Eight Silken Treasures…  The form presented in this workshop lends itself well to the 3 basic Qigong principles; correct posture, regulated breath and a tranquil mind.  I have practiced and taught this form spanning 3 decades.  The structure of the form has evolved as I have grown and healed.  I call practice “playing my instrument”.  You will learn to move, breathe and focus from your center and to expand outward, or inward, or both.  Play your instrument.

The postures and movements of the Eight Pieces of Brocade lend itself well to the process of opening the energetic pathways.  Coupled with the regulation of breath and clear mind intent, an integration of body, mind and spirit can be realized.

Sunday’s workshop is 4 hours long.  It will include foundational stances, an introduction into natural breathing, qi gathering and clearing methods, plus the Eight Pieces of Brocade.  We will take breaks as needed and snacks will be available.  Also, tea, coffee and water will be available.





Myth Magic and Mantra in Yoga-Tantra and Sanskrit Immersion

(Ina Sahaja – Embodied Sanskrit), founder of Embodied Sanskrit ® for a weekend of Tantric philosophy, sacred sound, and asana practice inspired by Shiva Rea, founder of Prana Flow®. This weekend will introduce, explain and embody key philosophical components of yoga based on ancient Tantric texts that Chris has been researching for years. These teachings are open to beginners and will inspire and revitalize the seasoned practitioner. Whole workshop – $195

Yoga Mythology: the Sacred Origin of Sanskrit with Ina Sahaja

Fri Date: 1/10/2014  6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The King and Queen of Asana: Headstand and Shoulder Stand: Mantra + Asana = Mantrasana with Ina Sahaja

Sat Date: 1/11/2014  9:00 am – 11:30 am

Juicy Hip Therapy- Sahaja Lila – Radical play in Practice and Teaching! with Ina Sahaja

Sun Date: 1/12/2014  9:00 am – 11:30 am

In Sanskrit, līlā means ‘play’ and is a call to action in remembering that modern yoga classes don’t have to be super spiritually-oriented to be profound, nor do you have to be ‘feeling the burn’ to be getting your workout on!
We will deconstruct the physical and energetic alignment in hip opening backbends, move into the flow of vinyāsa, and end with organic, free-form movement — the personal play of divine creative consciousness. $35

The Magic of Practice- Ucchara- Channeling the Spontaneous Divine with Christopher Tompkins and Ina Sahaja

Sun Date: 1/12/2014 From: 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm


Performed daily by Tantriks of all lineages (400-1300 C.E.), Ucchara, the ‘ascent’ of the internalized Goddess in the form of Mantra, was considered to be the very innovation that distinguished Tantrik (Hatha) Yoga as the most powerful way to spiritual awakening. Although a revolutionary innovation in Yoga, Ucchara was been largely lost to us in the post-Tantrik ‘Hatha Yoga’ manuals, our main source for Tantrik Yoga before now, along with the ritualized vinyasa (‘sequence’) for how to perform all practices of Tantrik Yoga in general. Christopher Tompkins has carefully reconstructed the original Ucchara practice over several years from a number of early Tantrik sources. $55

    I am 49 and have never done yoga. I am interested but do not know where to start. Can you please send me some information? Thank you…

    • Marsha says:

      Look at our calendar and check out the times for the fundamental classes or slow flow. You can start there.

      • Tracey Finney says:

        Thank you. I will be doing that. Here is another question, how difficult is the Power Lunch. That is what I would like to work towards being able to do.

        • Marsha says:

          Power lunches are 50 minutes so they are not as long. They move along but I think they are quite accessible to a wide variety of folks.

    I wanted to take a moment and tell you about our website http://www.holisticwellnessguide.com.

    We are fast becoming a centralized hub for all things holistic. From our listing of holistic practitioners to businesses that sell only organic or natural products. We also have an extensive library with articles and videos on every topic that you can think of for holistic living. As well as listings for health food stores and restaurants and destinations that are geared toward the healing arts.

    We are growing every day and are trying to reach out to organizations such as yours to ask them to help spread the word about our website to their members.

    We are not in the business of selling anything so there is no competition to you. We want to promote holistic living and make people aware of all the different venues for holistic products, healthcare and living in general.

    Thank you,

    Tammie Williams
