Reiki is an energy healing technique that can be used to treat physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual issues. Therefore, it can treat anything from stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia, up to chronic diseases. The older or more chronic the problem, the more treatments it may take to heal. The treatment is done through the transmission of ki (life force, energy, vital force, chi, and prana) channeled by the practitioner to the patient through the laying of hands.
Qigong consists of a series of exercises combined with breath work directed at health and longevity. This is done by charging the body with new fresh energy, similar to Reiki, but without an intermediary. Oriental medicine focuses on achieving balance in all of your bodies, resulting in health, strength, and wellness.
Meditation is a millenary technique for training the mind, calming it, centering it, and bringing it back to the present moment. There are hundreds or even thousands of studies that confirm the benefits of meditation both for the mind as for the body.

Tamara Allers began her journey with yoga in 2009. She completed her first yoga teacher training at Ashiyana Yoga in Goa. From there, she traveled India taking her practice deeper into her body, mind, soul, and life experience. Her body consciousness was further expanded on through her schooling in Holistic Nutrition in Canada and completing her 500 RYTT. The foundation of her practice is rooted in Ashtanga. However, after 7 years of experience (both as a teacher and student), her teaching style has been broadened to include the yoga Sutra and the 8 limbs of yoga.
