Class Descriptions

Most of our classes are for all levels of experience, and modifications based on personal needs can usually be arranged. 
If you have health issues or other concerns, please contact us beforehand.
You have been equipped with a tool that can provide you with increased energy, creativity and a greater sense of PRESENCE in your daily life.

And that “tool” is your breath!

In these weekly sessions you will learn and practice a powerful circular and connected breath technique which will increase the oxygenation in your body for greater overall health as well as providing a connection from your unconscious to your conscious mind. Through this connection old traumas and deep-seated patterns can be released and healed leaving you with an increased sense of Peace, Awareness and a deeper connection to PRESENCE.

My name is Eric Rehnke. I am a certified Breathwork Facilitator, Yoga Nidra Facilitator, Hypnotherapist, and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Master Practitioner. I have also studied other healing modalities such as Reiki, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping)) and Reflexology. Please visit my website at: www.BreathingIntoWholeness.com and the events calendar on the site will provide an up to date schedule if you have any questions as to whether an event is happening on a specific date.

Please arrive on time to protect the sacred space that we will create.

Bring WATER, any blankets, pillows, eye pillows you need to keep warm and comfortable. We will play music to accompany you on your breath journey and the breath journeys will last 45 minutes or so.

A profoundly relaxing experience with gong or crystal bowl sound healing, and yoga nidra. Yoga Nidra is a sleep-based meditation done lying on the floor, supported with gentle props. A series of breath, body, and awareness techniques combined with intention-setting, are designed to bring the body and mind into a deeply subtle state of being. 45 minutes of Yoga Nidra is as restorative as three hours of sleep!

Healing Qigong is the preventive and self-healing aspect of Chinese medicine.  In this class you will learn the 8-directional Pa-Kua movements that direct energy into our organs for improved energy circulation and health.  This class also provides an introduction to the Five Elements Model and is a mixture of movements, meditations on occasion, and discussion during tea time.
 
Pam took her first class in Tai Chi when she was in her 30’s and had an immediate resonance
with it. She went on to study Healing Qigong, Tui Na and the Five Elements from Joel Seigneur
at the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts. Her
daily practice of Healing Qigong has provided
balance to her current work as an engineer in the
defense industry and changed the direction of her
life.
 
Pam’s classes incorporate Healing Qigong and
during tea time she discusses the ‘why’ behind the
Qigong that relates the practices to health.
Although there are many aspects to health, she
believes it is the heart and the love that resides in
the heart that provides the true healing.
The use of various tools such as postures, breathing, sound, and meditation in the practice and purpose of yoga: stilling the mind in order to become more conscious. Involves standing, sitting and lying on the floor.  Enjoy the added benefit of vibrational sound healing through the use of crystal bowls!
 
Give yourself the gift of sweetly gentle yoga, mostly practiced on the floor with occasional standing poses, followed by blissful restorative poses.  The perfect blend of a physical practice and relaxation.  Poses can be modified as needed.  Your body, mind and spirit will thank you!
Kundalini Yoga is for everyone, meaning it's for people with jobs, families, relationships, homes, cars, creative practices...aka real people. It's known as the yoga of awareness and has been around for over 5,000 years. Kundalini is short for "high on your own supply", and gives students access to a fast and effective way to clear the mind, energize the body, and uplift the spirit. Ultimately, humans are wired to be happy and Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is a system to uncover your innate wisdom, innocence and contentment. Everything operates on a vibrational resonance and frequency. Through the practice of Kundalini Yoga, students begin to generate a more heightened vibrational experience both internally and externally. To sustain this experience, we add the healing sound of the gong. The benefits of gong baths include:

* Releasing Stress and Tension
* Clearing out old patterns and blocks from your body, enabling healing
* Bringing you into a deep state of relaxation
* Increasing your vital life force and improving circulation
* Strengthening your nervous & glandular system
* Improving your immune system
* Bringing peace to your mind
* Awaken your intuition and access inner wisdom

Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is a dynamic, beautiful and complete practice. It is known as “the yoga of awareness” and the aim of Kundalini yoga is to awaken the coiled energy (Kundalini) that resides at the base of the spine, bringing the energy through the 6 chakras (energy centers) all the way through the crown (7th chakra). The raising of the energy is done in each class through Pranayama (breath), Mudra (hand positions to activate energy points and direct the breath through the body), Mantra (using the language of Gurmukhi, the tongue hits the palette of the mouth activating energy points to stimulate specific brain function), Kriya (yoga poses/postures), Meditation and Gong (sound-healing therapy). The aim of Kundalini yoga is for one to access their spiritual potential by speaking truth, upholding values, and direct consciousness through compassion to uplift, serve and heal humanity.

Kundalini yoga, known as the yoga of awareness, is a fast and effective way to clear the mind, energize the body, and uplift the spirit. Students see and feel the results quickly, feeling energized, relaxed, and uplifted after each class.

 

The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation helps the body to clear any emotional blockages, releases stress/tension and helps the body come back into a balanced rejuvenated peaceful
state.

Meditation:
During this meditation, you will be able to create a union between the body and soul using mindfulness, awareness of breath, and bringing awareness into the body.
Meditation is a simple way to know this potential in you. The soul is the embodiment of power, wisdom and love. As you clear emotion and create silence in your mind, there is a definite feeling of oneness with everything that is experienced. Kindness, compassion, and peace radiate out from you to all around you.
When limiting beliefs are cleared, the body heals, the story disappears, and life becomes smoother.
