I highly and whole-heartedly recommend Tru For U. In the month since I started going there (and eating more healthily) I've lost ten pounds and feel full of energy. I actually look forward to every fitness and yoga class I attend - never, ever the case in the past - and I want to go every day. It just feels good. I'm disappointed when my schedule precludes dropping in. The classes are offered with a good range of times and the ability to double up on back to back fitness and yoga sessions, if desired, which I've noticed people do. The instructors have all been excellent, the desk staff informative and helpful, the other members friendly and pleasant, and the price is very reasonable. I like that there are members ranging from their 20s to retirees, women and men, at all levels of fitness. The physical space and atmosphere are inviting and, being a yoga studio, are at the other end of the spectrum from a big gym or the YMCA, which I don't care for. This is a cozy, pleasant, attractive place; it has a spa atmosphere and somehow makes me feel welcome and comfortable when I walk in the door in spite of being an overweight, middle aged gal without sleek workout wear. To give you an idea of the scale of the studio there is an entrance foyer with front desk and kitchenette for getting water, a separate, heated yoga room with laminate flooring and a mirrored wall, and an exercise room with a cushioned rubber floor where the fitness and spin classes take place. These rooms are not small, not big - just right. There is also a separate section at the front of the building where spa and chiropractic services are offered, but I haven't explored these options to date. I was able to try unlimited free yoga and fitness classes for a two week introductory period and within a week knew I'd found, for literally the first time (at 51 years of age), a place to exercise and work on improving my health where I felt at home and where I actually wanted to go. The classes have let me strike an effortless balance between gently challenging myself and not overdoing it, and that is entirely due to the skill of the instructors, who are conscientious about including modifications for newbies and those with physical constraints. I'm made to feel like I'm an integral part of the class along with the fit members who are bending like pretzels. And I am seeing and feeling definite results. What else can I say...the facilities are clean, there's free parking right behind the building, and with my membership plan (there are various options) I can just borrow a provided yoga mat, water bottle and towel every time I go - I like this convenience. For me an added bonus is that I live close to the studio, so I'm glad it's located where it is on Talbot St., and I'm thankful I took the step to check it out. It's well worth a try : )
My journey with reiki began in Japan where I lived for 8 years by receiving Reiki sessions from a Japanese Reiki “Grand Master” and eventually studying with him and his wife by taking my 1st and 2nd Degrees with them. Upon Returning to Canada I immediatley continued to receive work and discover the Wonders of reiki with many different practitioners. Finally, I attained my Master Teacher Level with Elizabeth Galbraith as my mentor. In addition to Reiki, I had a rare opportunity to train in Qi Gong and Taichi with masters in Japan which i also continued training here with a total of 20 years.I recently also recieved my Acsess Bars Training which may be offered in the future. I presently was requested to assist with teaching children and their teachers, mindfullness and self regulation at Thames Valley Schools in the area as i am an occasional Teacher for the System. I welcome the opportunity to work with clients of all ages using Reiki as my main focus of my practice.
What is REIKI treatment like?
During a treatment session the Reiki energy works through the practitioner to the client. The reiki practitoner connects with the reiki energy.
The client remains fully clothed and is generally laying on a massage bed. This spiritually guided life force helps to release blockages in the body or energy distruptions in the body and to rebalance the body's energy systems to a harmonious state.
Reiki is a natural non-invasive therapy using a hands on or if preferred, hands off approach helping you on many different levels of healing.
*Renew your energy level and de-stress
*Replace unwanted anxiety with tranquility
*Rejuvenate your body's natural ability to heal itself
*Resulting in an overall sense of calm and well being
