Kari Kirilova

I discovered yoga over 15 years ago, it all started just as physical exercise but it rapidly transformed into a spiritual practice. I was so inspired by my practice that I wanted to share my love for yoga with the world. I completed my 200H training in 2011 with Suddha Wexler at the Chicago Yoga Center in the classical Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin styles. My classes incorporate a little bit of every style and are suited for yogis of all levels. My philosophy is that, Yoga is for everyone! In class there is many variations which suit everyone from the first time yogi to the long time practitioner. My classes flow in a controlled manner making sure everyone hits the correct posture and gets the full benefit from it. I strive to help people through their journey to nourish their body mind and soul on and off the mat.

Danica Mathis

Danica has recently completed her 200 hour teacher training course here at Reflections Yoga Center. She has always had a love for Yoga and knew it was a special practice. It was not until her daughter Maya was born that she truly experienced the wonders of Yoga. Yoga has transformed her into a more confident, grounded, and spiritual being. Danica currently serves her other passion as a Spanish High School teacher and incorporates Yoga practice into the classroom. She believes Yoga is a journey and whoever takes this journey will find miracles. It is her desire to bring the same joy to her students that was brought to her through Yoga. Because Yoga connects the Mind, Body, and Spirit, Danica hopes that all who experience the joys of Yoga will come to find their true selves.

Meditations

 

Gong Meditation-

Benjamin Savage - Gong Meditations

 

Benjamin Savage is an artist and friend of the gong. He has studied Shamanism and Buddhism for over 20 years, he is a lifelong seeker and spiritually oriented being; a child of Nature. He has a strong connection to universal intuition and is motivated through that intuition in his performances and in his life. Since a child he has explored many spiritual traditions searching for the unifying elements connecting all paths; the resonating truth of love and light in all beings. This has led him to the gong, which seems to be a portal for communicating directly with the oneness that connects and permeates all things. Benjamin performs gong meditations (or gong baths) and creates artwork to facilitate reconnection with the divine in all things.

Gong Meditations

Looking for some relief from the obstacles in life?

Gong Meditations  are a powerful way to  bring your body and mind into balance, combat physical pain, low energy and depression. A gong meditation can shift your being from a state of suffering into a state of healing and clarity. Even if you are healthy and feeling fine, a gong meditation or sound healing can give you a super-charged sense of well-being!

 

 What is a Gong Meditation?

A Gong Meditation is a meditative experience where a practitioner utilizes a Gong  and Singing Bowls (sometimes accompanied by some other instruments as well) to remove blockages, tune your cells and bring harmony and health to your body and mind. The vibrations from this remarkable instrument wash over the participants removing unwanted suffering, hence the term “Gong Bath” (trademarked by Richard Rudis).

 

The vibrations shift your being into a deep meditative state that allow for a wide variety of personally beneficial experiences to occur. If you have tried meditation and been unsatisfied with your results, this may be a way to have a deep meditative state induced.

During a gong meditation it is suggested that you lie down, relax your muscles, close your eyes, and attentively listen to the sounds. Comfortable clothing is suggested.

 

Each person’s experience is a little different, as the vibrations will address each individual’s particular issues.  Each gong meditation will yield differing results as well, so it is suggested to attend more than once.

 

Some experiences have entailed, but are not limited to; deep meditative states, bliss, relief from physical pains, sudden insights, receiving creative ideas, out-of-body experiences, strong pervasive peace, visions, and much more.

Is this for real?

 

Sound healing has been around for hundreds to thousands of years and part of many cultures all over the world. Western science has been investigating the remarkable effects of these vibrations on the body and mind and finding that indeed positive changes are happening inside us. Some of these are: brain wave shifts from Beta (waking state) into Theta and Delta (deep meditative state), which allow the body to naturally shift from a depressive state to a more uplifted state. The vibrations can also affect the sympathetic nervous system, causing deep relaxation and minimizing the sensation of pain, as well as redistribution of the cells, removal of toxins, and release of our own beneficial chemicals. Modern science even uses sound frequency-emitting machines to break down kidney stones and gallstones.

Suggestions for what to bring:

A mat or pad to lay on, a warm blanket, an eye-mask, pillows for head, feet or back, wear comfortable clothing (**Natural Healing Centers provides zero-gravity chairs for your comfort!**)

Do not eat immediately before the experience

1 hour session $25 if you pre-pay in advance or $30 on the day of the event.

Betty Perez has been a Spanish teacher for nearly 30 years. She taught high school Spanish in San Diego, California and spent the majority of her career at Bremen High School District #228 here in the South Suburbs of Chicago teaching all levels of Spanish including AP Spanish and a bilingual class for native Spanish speakers.

She considers teaching to be a privilege and the bond with her students – “a sacred trust.”  She believes that learning a second language is the key to understanding and appreciation of people of different backgrounds and cultures… for language cannot be adequately taught or learned without exposing students to the richness of different cultures, attitudes, and beliefs. She invites you to accompany her while exploring the culture and language of the Spanish speaking world.  “Andale - vamos a aprender el español - Come on along  - let's learn Spanish!!!!!”

Services Offered:

     Integrative Intuitive Art Sessions

Gentle – imaginative – Healing – Self Empowering

Integrative Intuitive Art  Sessions  refer to a special  “jumping in” Intuitive Art process I use to assist others to be fully engaged with their inner world of thought to tap into the GREATEST source of guidance their higher self-wisdom, to serve as a healing tool – profound insight way shower and beacon shining the light on loving self-empowerment .

How does the Integrative Intuitive Art Sessions work? The world the client and I “jump in” will represent something that the client really wants more clarity about, really wants to fully experience to understand better, or something they really want to move past and heal.

The drawing process of Integrative Intuitive Art Drawing is two-fold. First step: I do an interpretive Intuitive Art Drawing and “jump in” to the energy of my drawing to experience and obtain insight that will additionally be helpful to the client. Second step: I guide the client as they draw an Intuitive Art drawing and help the client “jump” into the energy of their drawing to become an active participant in a visual symbolic world. In this world, the client can actually move or walk around to experience, observe, feel, and touch. It is here that one can ask their higher-self questions and receive answers or solutions. This visual symbolic world that the client is shown and can explore is the “language” or way that their higher self can communicate something to them in a picture form. The sky is the limit - Ideally we can explore ANYTHING – which the client feels is blocking them – any belief pattern that is hindering or any world of … that the client wants to REALLY see HOW they truly feel about it and currently experiencing it in their life.

Following the session – we discuss and go over “homework” that would be beneficial for the client. The result is a new awareness and self-empowered change.

Sessions are 75 minutes - $125

Hypnosis:

Experience a safe, therapeutic, and powerful healing tool that brings about deep relaxation to your body and mind. While you are deeply relaxed your subconscious mind is open and focused; allowing the opportunity for healing and desired transformational changes you would like to see occur.

Hypnosis can help people move past unknown resistance and to resolve deep seated issues. It helps to establish self-empowering beliefs and life skills. It is used to manage stresses such as anxiety, weight gain, fears, sleeping problems as well as changing negative habits.

Experiencing hypnosis is similar to the natural alpha state you experience when you are engaged in the blissful world of daydreaming.

During a hypnosis session, you are safe, very relaxed, in total control of yourself and are aware of

everything that is going on around you.

The greatest results are achieved from a series of sessions that address the multi layered aspects associated to the issue of concern.

 

Targeted Hypnosis Sessions are 45 minutes +/- : $75

Reiki Fusion Sessions

Reiki is a Japanese, holistic light touch energy based healing method used to bring about well-being, harmony and balance in the body, mind and spirit.

The natural flow of life force energy in the body can become unbalanced, stagnant, or blocked due to unhealthy lifestyles habits, unresolved emotions or spiritual disconnections. Restoring the flow of this energy improves the physical body as well as the emotional and mental well-being of the individual.

 

 

Reiki Fusion provides the following benefits:

 

1). Deep clearing energy work harnessing the wisdom of your own body to bring to you the energy you need to reprogram your energy on every level:  mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.

 

2). Identify areas of blocked / imbalanced / old trauma energy sources held in the body and chakra centers to bring forth a clearing, rebalancing and healing energy state to those areas.

 

3). Identify the origin of active energetic patterns carried over from past life experiences or generational in nature that are NOW having a negative impact within your life. Primarily I will only see energetic patterns that are occurring now and can be validated by you through verification of reoccurring patterns or situations you are experiencing now. Together we will do a healing clearing and energetic reprograming.

 

 

75 minute session $100

Audio Pharmacology™ Drum Circle

Drum therapy is an ancient approach that uses rhythm to promote healing and self-expression.   Recent research reviews indicate that drumming accelerates physical healing, boosts the immune system and produces feelings of well-being, a release of emotional trauma, and reintegration of self. Other studies have demonstrated the calming, focusing, and healing effects of drumming on Alzheimer's patients, autistic children, emotionally disturbed teens, recovering addicts, trauma patients, and prison and homeless populations.   Study results demonstrate that drumming is a valuable treatment for stress, fatigue, anxiety, hypertension, asthma, chronic pain, arthritis, mental illness, migraines, cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, paralysis, emotional disorders, and a wide range of physical disabilities.  In this gathering we will explore the science of rhythmic percussion and their effects on the mind/body/spirit, trance states (outer/inner body), breath work, meditation, divine feminine/masculine attributes of drumming and history along with ritual protocols.
