Wednesdays @ 3pm: Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is a gentle, calming, and meditative practice that focuses on relaxation and stress relief.

In this class, participants are guided through a series of supported postures, using props such as blankets, bolsters, and blocks to help the body fully relax and release tension. The postures are held for several minutes each, allowing for a deep stretch and a chance to quiet the mind. Restorative Yoga is suitable for all levels, and is especially beneficial for those who are recovering from illness or injury, experiencing stress or anxiety, or simply looking to unwind and relax.

The class is typically slower-paced, with a focus on breathing and mindfulness, and encourages participants to let go of the busyness of daily life and fully surrender to the present moment.

Thursdays @ 7pm: Kundalini Yoga

All yoga is meant to “unite” – the body with our mind and consciousness. Kundalini yoga is no different. However, how we get there may look different and that is where we see many “styles” of yoga.

Kundalini is often called the “yoga of awareness,” the jewel of yoga practices, and we use many techniques to become aware of own being, including but not limited to postures, meditation, mudras (hand postures), mantras (sound), and more. Each class, or “kriya” consists of a specific set of exercises in a certain order for a certain amount of time and for a certain purpose (such as for the immune system, nervous system, anxiety, etc.).

All classes are completely different so if you don’t like one – don’t give up! Try another one! All supplies needed are provided by SOTE Sanctuary.

Reiki energy healing is a holistic and non-invasive practice that aims to balance the energy flow in the body, promote relaxation, and activate the body’s natural healing processes. It involves the use of gentle touch, hand positions, and symbols to channel the universal life force energy to the recipient. Reiki sessions are safe, calming, and can address a wide range of physical, emotional, and mental issues, such as stress, anxiety, pain, insomnia, and chronic conditions. Reiki can benefit anyone, regardless of age or health status, and can be used in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic treatments. If you are looking for a natural and effective way to enhance your well-being and restore balance to your body and mind, Reiki energy healing may be the right choice for you.

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda 101, Ayurveda 101 class, Sanctuary, SOTE Sanctuary, SOTE Sanctuary Ayurveda 101

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian system of medicine and wellness that focuses on achieving balance and harmony in the body, mind, and spirit. Ayurveda believes that each person has a unique constitution, or “dosha,” that determines their physical and psychological characteristics and influences their health and well-being. Ayurvedic treatments can include diet and lifestyle changes, herbal remedies, massage, meditation, and yoga. Ayurveda can help you identify and address imbalances and health issues, prevent disease, improve digestion, boost immunity, reduce stress and anxiety, and enhance overall vitality and longevity. Ayurveda offers a personalized and natural approach to health that can help you achieve optimal physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Ayurveda could be the perfect choice for you if you are searching for a holistic and time-honored system of medicine and wellness.

Jessica

Certified Instructor

Reiki
Yoga

I fully embraced the yoga asana practice after an injury prevented me from running. Seeking a practice that would bring me peace and comfort in my body I immersed myself in the study and practice of yoga. This led me to completing my 200 hour yoga teacher training and social emotional learning certification. During this journey my passion to make yoga inclusive was sparked! I truly believe that yoga is for everybody!! Outside of the studio I am a wife, mom of 2 adult children and a special education teacher who loves connecting with nature whether it be hiking, biking, gardening, skiing or enjoying a book outside. I am also a Reiki Master/Practitioner.

Tiffany Reinitz

Certified Instructor

Ayurveda
Yoga
Meditation
Reiki

It was around 2005 when Tiffany first heard the word Ayurveda and learned its meaning – and it changed her life forever. It was a moment of “before” Ayurveda in her life and “after” – having learned a whole different paradigm of health and wellness, while still in pharmacy school. With the two types of medicine being as different as possible, Tiffany found deep healing and meaning applying Ayurvedic principles to her own life and has since made it her life’s work to integrate the two types of medicine – seeing value in both. She likes to focus first on the emphasis of preventative medicine valued & practiced most in Ayurveda.

For Tiffany & her family, Ayurveda has become foundational for how to live the best life possible not only physically but mentally, emotionally & spiritually as well. Tiffany practices yoga not only as a physical exercise but primarily to embrace the lifestyle and philosophy behind the vast and ancient teachings. She has been to India 8 times – most often both formally & informally studying yoga, meditation, Tibetan Medicine and Ayurveda in addition to diving deeper into her own practices & personal wellness journey.

Tiffany’s interest in complementary and alternative therapies lie primarily in Ayurveda, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, Tibetan Medicine, energy healing and more. She is a a board certified Ayurvedic Health Counselor (2021), Ayurvedic Practitioner (2023), & level 1 certified (200 hour) Kundalini yoga instructor (2016). Additionally, she is a Reiki Master (2008) & holds a certificate in Complementary and Alternative therapies from the Center for Spirituality and Healing at the University of Minnesota (2008).

She is a highly skilled critical care hospital pharmacist prior to finding her passion and life’s purpose in Ayurveda & yoga. She is the mother to two amazing daughters and is married to her wonderful husband Mark.

In addition, I would like to acknowledge that I am aware of the access to this information my privilege has allowed me to have. I have benefited from the rich traditions of this amazing & ancient culture that historically has been marginalized.

Laura Ritchie

Certified Instructor

Yoga
Reiki
Chakra Healing

Initially hesitant to give it a try, Laura picked up yoga eight years ago and has never looked back. It transformed her physical and mental health, as well as her passion for spirituality and self-discovery.  Overtime, she expanded her spiritual horizons to include meditation, pranayama, Reiki, and plant medicines. For Laura, healing is an essential part of her daily wellness routine, which she believes is necessary for her own physical and mental health, as well as for bringing healing to others.

When Laura started noticing the benefits of her yoga practice, she felt as if she had found an answer she had been searching for for a long time. She learned that most of our suffering is a result of an imbalance in our body or mind, and that holistic health practices can effectively and safely address the core issue, rather than treat at symptom-level. Laura’s profound life changes spurred her desire to share what she’d learned, and continues to learn, with others. She understands the power to improve our health and lives, and is dedicated to helping others unlock that potential.

When you join one of Laura’s classes or book a personal session, you will be greeted with an open, welcoming environment committed to your healing and well being. Laura gratefully shares what she has learned through her own journey, and honors the unique journey of every individual she works with. She embraces a holistic approach to life and is open about the transformative impact it has had on her. Laura believes fully in the famous Yogic phrase “Namaste,” meaning ‘the divinity in me honors the divinity in you.’ 

In addition to teaching, Laura spends time diving deeper into holistic wellness practices, learning about them from all angles to provide the most comprehensive service for others, and routine for herself.  Laura’s other passion is writing, and she writes regular blogs about yoga and plant medicine.  Laura enjoys the outdoors, and travels frequently during the harsh Midwest winters to escape the cold and train with her Teachers.  Laura’s number one priority, however, is her son Arlo, who has been her life’s greatest blessing, inspiration, and challenge.
