Chakras are energy centers of transformation – energy centers through which the cosmic energy flows into the human body. The seven chakras were first described nearly 3,000 years ago in the ancient sacred texts of India. These seven energy centers described so long ago actually have a basis in anatomy as they correspond to five main nerve ganglia of the spinal column and the two areas (upper and lower) of the brain.
Since chakras are indeed at the “center” of our physical bodies and involved with all of it’s physical, mental, and emotional processes, they are essential to our well-being. If we have one or more chakras which are out of balance, this can over time lead to physical, emotional or mental dis-ease. Keeping our chakras aligned and “singing” with the harmony that they are meant to have can lead to a sense of health and balance, which can improve our lives on many different levels.
In each class you will understand the importance of these energetic centers and be guided through a bija mantra (seed syllable) meditation for each chakra. We will also pair each chakra with the perfect blend of essential oils in every class, which will add to the healing experience. We will finish with a guided Yoga nidra (Yogic Sleep) meditation with sound healing.

Alexandra is the Director of the Reiki Department – Certified Usui Reiki Master / Master Teacher, Certified RYT 500 ERYT 200 Yoga Instructor, CNC – Certified Nutritional Consultant and IFHI- Fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality, Energy Healer & Meditation Instructor. She facilities the Reiki Training classes, intern mentorships and ongoing Reiki Healing Group.
Alexandra believes that our Western society places a great emphasis towards treating illness and disease by means of pharmacology. “Where there are amazing lifesaving drugs, often we focus on the symptoms and not the root cause. This also often leaves out one important aspect of the human body – its amazing ability to heal itself when given the right conditions. This is where energy and Reiki comes in and can be a fantastic complimentary healing modality.” Through the means of Reiki, one gains a greater awareness and sense of empowerment towards healing.
Alexandra’s focus is on self-healing and on using Reiki to maintain balance in one’s life. Alexandra believes that each person can take responsibility for his or her own healing process and wellness. Her job is to help increase awareness of the subtle body, assist, guide, and provide tools to aid each person’s unique healing journey.
In addition, Alexandra also works with clients one-on-one. During a private Healing Session, Alexandra helps the client to identify where the root of the issue lies energetically and helps to develop a sustainable wellness plan. She works with releasing the blocked and traumatic energy of events from this life, past lives. Each session includes balancing physical and emotional aspects of the body, chakras (subtle energy centers of the body), clearing aura (also known as one’s energetic boundaries) and if necessary, removal of energetic attachments.
