What to Expect
Group Yoga Classes
We practice at Yoseikan Anderson Karate Studio as a group. The studio has a beautiful bamboo floor and mirrors. We start with a centering meditation and sing the sound of OM 3 times. Singing OM gives us an opportunity to recognize that we are connected to our environment and one another. Our actions have a ripple effect on the world and we acknowledge that our thoughts create our world. I will do my best to create a safe and relaxing environment for you to learn yoga. I guide students through vocal cues and will give hands on assists when necessary. Classes are tailored for the group of students who come. For example, if there are a lot of sore shoulders we will do poses to create freedom and strength in the shoulders. If students need a fast paced class we will do more vinyasa - a linking of poses. Sometimes we move slowly in a restorative style, especially if it's been a draining and exhausting week. Every class ends in Savasana - a final relaxation pose that gives us an opportunity to really incorporate what we've learned on a cellular level. You can purchase a class package in person or via PayPal on the Classes page.
Private Energy Sessions
I use a combination of Reiki, Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki, and Integrative Quantum Mechanics. I have been studying energy work in depth since 2006. Most people experience a deep calmness and mental clarity after a session. Before a session begins I sit down with you and we have a brief discussion of what it is that you most hope to gain from the energy work. During the session, you will rest on a massage table, fully clothed, and covered in a warm blanket while gentle music plays in the background. Most people like to close their eyes and simply receive the energy. At times I may ask questions or offer you information that comes through. My hands hover a few inches above your body and I do not need to touch you. I usually walk around you so I can work on a different energy centers within the body. Some people experience a feeling of warmth or coolness, a few even see colors, and some feel nothing and maybe even fall asleep! After the session, there will be some time to discuss any questions or thoughts that may have come up for you.
private yoga sessions
We will meet either in person or on zoom at a mutually agreed upon time. Private yoga sessions are 30-60 minutes long depending on the agreed upon time and length. We will meet once to twice a week. If a session needs to be rescheduled, it must be done so 24 hours before the class start time, otherwise the session will be considered completed and will not be rescheduled. Any session that falls onto a holiday will be re-scheduled or your session will be extended to include the missed class.
The Yoga Sequence in a private yoga session is created just for you. As your guide I will share with you all the yoga poses that will benefit you most and help you achieve your goal. This is a team effort and I encourage you to create a dialogue with me so that you feel empowered and knowledgeable in which yoga poses help you most.
Yoga Class Designed for You
Working with you, I will create a class just for you! I'm here to empower you to make positive changes in your life that facilitate you on your yoga journey. In our yoga class together, I will help you define your desired outcome, create the yoga sequencing, and explore alternative options to certain poses. We will begin a dialogue via e-mail and possibly Zoom or in person. If the Yoga Class Designed For You is conducted via long distance methods, I will create a sequence of yoga poses just for you in a pdf and video format that is delivered straight to your inbox or available for download. Turn around time is usually 3-4 days, this time can vary so I will confirm with you upon receiving your e-mail. If the Yoga Class Designed For You is conducted in person, I will create the practice that you need most in the moment and offer supporting documentation.
My tarot readings do not predict the future. They offer you a glimpse of the energies that surround a situation. We have free will and ultimately create our destiny through our actions and choices. A tarot reading is like receiving a weather forecast. For example, if the meteorologist tells you there will be rain, you have the choice to bring an umbrella and stay dry. Or forgo the umbrella and get wet. It's up to us what we do with the information received.
To request a Tarot reading with me, you will be asked to pay via PayPal and submit your request in the e-mail form provided. You will receive a confirmation e-mail from me within 48 hours after I receive your request and let you know when you can expect your reading. I will review your question ensuring that it is in line with my code of ethics. If the question needs to be rephrased I will consult with you. If we cannot agree on a question I will offer you a refund. I retain the right to refuse to do a reading on particular topics like, certain health or legal matters.
I use a 5 card spread and will send the reading to you in a pdf form along with a picture of the cards drawn - I use the Radiant Rider-Waite deck. Your reading will be e-mailed back to the e-mail submitted in the request form. If you need clarification on any of the cards that were drawn you can ask for guidance. If you have additional questions that were not a part of the original request or wish to have additional cards drawn, you will be invited to purchase another Tarot reading. Please note that readings are only done for those 18 and older.
Refunds will only be provided upon mutual agreement when the actual expiration date for class packages has not expired, or the Energy session, Yoga Class Designed for you, or Tarot reading has not been performed. For example, if you and I, Irena Miller, cannot agree on a meeting time for an energy or yoga session, or we cannot agree on a question for the Tarot spread and I, Irena Miller, have not started your actual session or reading, you may be offered a refund.
However, if your Yoga class, Energy session, or Tarot reading has been performed and completed, there will be no refund. This is because I pour my heart and soul into your session and I invest a significant amount of time and energy into your situation. I will make my best attempt to clarify any questions you may have and give you the best advice of which I am capable.
