Kundalini yoga classes are a dynamic blend of postures, pranayama, mantra, music and meditation, which teach you the art of relaxation, self-healing and elevation. Balancing body and mind enables you to experience the clarity and beauty of your soul. No previous experience in yoga is required for you to achieve results with your very first class. Men of great knowledge actually found out about the chakras – their workings, their powers. They found that the life of a human is totally based on these chakras. This total science gave birth to Kundalini Yoga.

Reiki is a hands-on healing technique that balances, realigns energy, and activates your own healing powers. It reduces stress, increases energy and focus, and enhances creativity.
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning Universal Life Energy, the energy that is inherent to all creation. It describes an ancient Tibetan energy balancing treatment. It is based on Traditional energy theory (Prana, Chi, Qi, Ki), and incorporates the meridian system of energy pathways running through the body which are commonly known as the Chakras.
Reiki is non-manipulative. Through loose clothing, the practitioner channels Universal Life Energy through their hands, helping to direct energy where it is needed.
Reiki is very relaxing and comforting. Some experience a deep meditative state, some fall asleep, and others become recharged. Some whose brains are on ‘overload’ simply enjoy giving up daily pressures for an hour and allowing their minds to quiet.
Reiki feels good. It is recommended as a treatment before and after surgery. It is helpful during illness, and can be used along with other conventional treatments. Reiki is recommended for people who feel perfectly healthy, to maintain an energetic balance which can help in the prevention of illness.

It is a ceremony that frees your home of old energy, which is particularly important after someone has been ill or there’s been an argument in the home. It’s a wonderful easy to refresh your house before bringing home a new baby. You’ll notice an immediate difference after a Space Clearing and may even see an improvement in relationships, finances and health issues.
Moving into a new space is a time of new beginnings and fresh opportunities. Why wouldn’t one want their space to be free from negative/stagnant energy left behind by previous tenants? Space Clearing can also be used when one is beginning a new phase of life. Such as; strating a new job, letting go of old habits, or manifesting positive changes.
After discussing your intentions, I will go through a ceremony using sage, palo santo, and the power of Reiki to empty the vessel of elements, thoughts and/or feelings that are no longer wanted or needed. Then I will fill your home with love, protection and healing. This creates space for all that you wish to manifest.
Combination Reiki/Massage Session

“I have been getting a massage from Marla during the last year and every time it a relaxing and therapeutic experience. My back problems have been addressed by her deep tissue techniques. I would definitely recommend her if you are in need of a therapeutic or relaxation massage. I have also worked with Marla on her new CD and my album and she is always a pleasure to work with. Thank you Marla”
Charles Schacht, Charles Schacht Consulting Inc.
“Marla is an extremely gifted massage therapist and healer. Not only does she possess the training and knowledge to give a healing physical massage, but she is a Reiki Master as well. Marla’s techniques address your body’s needs from the inside out. I know for a fact that I have resolved physical/emotional issues through Marla’s unique ability to help me heal myself. A few years ago, I decided to become a certified Reiki practitioner as well. I took Marla’s weekend course and it was a life-changer! In my opinion, there is no better person than Marla to guide you through that transition. Thank you Marla! The world is a better place for having you in it!”

Thank you Marla for opening yourself up as such a clear channel and sharing your gift with me.”

What is Tantra?
Tantra is an ancient spiritual practice that cultivates Love, Divine Relationship and Sacred Sexuality.
What is the role of sexual energy in healing?
Sexual energy is the counterpart of divine energy, which is present in everyone.
Through years of assisting others in healing, I have found many people that are drawn to spiritual practices such as reiki avoiding their lower chakras. Tantric practices were once a significant aspect of the foundation of reiki. However, many people have forgotten the grounding aspects that tantra can bring forth.
Through tantra limiting beliefs and self-judgments about sexuality are burned away. My intention is to create a safe space where you can remove blocks to love and pleasure. I will assist you in increasing intimacy with yourself and others. You will become more radiant, alive and fully embodied through the use of Tantric Reiki.
Don’t stay stuck in a life full of dullness and pain. Allow me to help you connect deeper to pleasure, open your heart and shed all resistance to joy.
What does a Tantric Reiki Session Look Like?
- Sessions are created to allow a safe space to connect deeper to your sensuality.
- First, we'll discuss your intention for the session.
- After our check-in, I will lead you through a tantric practice that includes breath work, movement, meditation, and deep contemplation, connecting you more deeply with your pure sexual essence.
- Reiki will infuse the session before, during and after the tantric work to allow for deep integration of the practices.
- Sessions are available in person, Skype or by phone.
- There is no nudity or sexual contact in any of the sessions.
