Harmonyum Healing and Shakti Naam Yoga
In the spirit of caring for ourselves this season, I’d like to share a wonderful new resource I have found. My recent experience with two modalities of energy healing left me so uplifted, and were so strong and expansive, that I could not wait to share this information with you!
We have a new energy healer in our San Diego community – please meet Maura McCormick! Maura offers a healing modality that has some similarities to Reiki (Harmonyum), as well as a form of yoga (Shakti Naam) that are not yet widely available. I have been fortunate to have a series of her Harmonyum healing sessions and have been practicing Shakti Naam Yoga with her for several months now. She offers classes in San Diego at Sojourn Healing Collective and also promotes “Living Room Yoga” where you can gather a minimum of three people to practice Kundalini Yoga in the comfort of your own home. Anyone interested in joining me at my house, please let me know!
Harmonyum concentrates on the nervous system. The trauma and sadness we experience become stored in the body if not regularly cleared and can lead to disease and depression. Harmonyum healing clears the emotional traumas from the spine and nervous system. To do this, the recipient lies on a massage table, face down, and the work focuses on the spinal column. After a number of sessions, you can expect to experience a building of self-confidence, clarity in your life direction, increased self-awareness, feelings of being uplifted and more happy, more calm, and more optimistic.
Her other practice, Shakti Naam Yoga is a powerful anti-aging and disease-defying yogic practice. Developed in the Himalayas and new to the West, Shakti Naam incorporates seated meditation, standing postures, breathing and movement to open the meridians (energy channels) and remove all blocks in the body. This unique fusion of movement, breath, acupressure, stretching and vocal vibration, activates and strengthens the body’s self-healing capacities resulting in radiant health, happiness, and vitality.
Maura adds her own personal spin on this practice with a lot of laughter, fun, and dancing during each class. We are so lucky that she has relocated from her native Boston to be here. She has years of expertise as a holistic health practitioner, and I’ve experienced firsthand her effectiveness in promoting healing, happiness and well-being.
