What is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative Yoga is a very restful, meditative style of yoga. Poses are held for longer than in a standard yoga class and your body is fully supported by props throughout the pose. This allows you to deeply relax and settle in while passively opening specific parts of your body.  Guided meditations and breath awareness help you to drift off, switch off the thinking mind and surrender into the moment.  It is a beautiful way to restore and nurture your body and mind while balancing out your nervous system.  It is also great style of yoga for improving sleep and relieving muscle tension.

Restorative Yoga is immensely beneficial for your nervous system and it has and wonderful calming effect on your both your body and mind.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique that promotes relaxation and reduces stress and anxiety through gentle touch. Throughout a reiki session a Reiki practitioner uses their hands to deliver energy or (chi) to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy system.

Benefits of Reiki during pregnancy include

Receiving Reiki during Pregnancy is 100% Safe. It provides relief by sending revitalising energy to both Mother & baby.  It can also help to strengthen the bond between unborn child & mother.  Reiki is excellent for helping to calm your nerves and helps overcome the overwhelm that many mums-to-be experience.  Below are a few of the benefits of receiving Reiki while pregnant.

  • Easing pregnancy discomforts – Pregnancy can be exhausting as you go through many physical changes. Receiving reiki whilst pregnant may ease many pregnancy discomforts such as; morning sickness, exhaustion, mood swings, back pain, high blood pressure and hormonal imbalance.
  • Reducing stress – pregnancy can be scary, especially for first time mums, you may be worried about the baby’s health or possible complications. Reiki is known for helping to remove stress and anxiety from the body and bring you into a more relaxed state.
  • Strengthening the bond with your baby – reiki affects both mother and baby, as a mother receives Reiki she might feel a greater connection with her child in her womb.  She may also become more in tune with her body on an energetic level.
Benefits of Reiki for Postnatal mums
  • Improved sleep – Being a mum to a new-born can be tiring, all the broken sleep & hours of feeding can start to take its toll if you’re not making time to reboot your own energy.​   Did you know that one hour of reiki is the physiological equivalent to 3 or 4 hours of sleep​!!!
  • Helps you heal postnatally – mums caring for newborns often forget that they need to heal too. Giving birth opens you physically, energetically & emotionally which can leave you feeling very vulnerable at times.​  Reiki can help to rebalance you energetically, leaving you in a calmer state by reducing stress and anxiety.  It may also help clear emotional blockages, relieve pain, cleanse toxins and improves organ function!!

How amazing does Reiki sound?  The best part is that it is 100% natural AND SAFE.   Scientific evidence is proving more every single day about how much energy can affect our health and our life as a whole.


These days our lives are pretty constant, wouldn’t you agree?  There is so much stimuli around and are poor nervous systems are constantly being challenged.  If we don’t take the time for selfcare not only do we run the risk of burning out, but we limit ourselves to feeling less then great, most of the time.  It’s like we are in a constant state of “just getting by”.   Imagine how much better you could you feel if you made the time for some selfcare REGUALARLY!!

I honestly believe everyone needs a little bit of Restorative Yoga and Reiki in their lives.  Have you been to one of our classes yet?  What did you think of it?  I would love to hear your feedback.


Much love,

Kristy xx
