Reiki and yoga

The practice of Reiki and yoga go hand in hand. The practice of yoga increases the flow of Reiki energy in a persons life. Yoga helps a person understand Reiki in a much deeper way. Reiki helps a person understand the deeper energies of yoga. A regular practice of yoga can bring very good results in therapies such as physiotherapy, psychotherapy, and in treatments of arthritis, asthma, and hearth problems. Also it gives excellent result in eliminating alcohol, tobacco, and drug addictions.

Scientists around the world are studying the effects of yoga on human body. They came to a conclusion that certain asanas (postures) and pranayama (breathing) were connected with certain internal organs, endocrine glands, and psychological states. There are many different types of yoga, but here we will explore some basic Hatha yoga techniques that bring depth to the art and science of all forms of Reiki.

Hatha yoga in these modern times works from the outside in to bring the physical forces into alignment with the subtle anatomy of our higher divine nature. It is through the alignment of our energies with the divine that the flow of Reiki energy for healing and personal growth is increased.

Ear candling

Ear candling, also called ear coning, is an alternative medicine practice to improve general health and wellbeing by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal. Ear candles are made of cotton or linen thats wound into a cone shape, soaked in wax, and then allowed to harden.

An ear candling session can last from 15 minutes to 45 minutes, during which time a series of one or two ear candles may be burned for each ear. Usually, the treated person is lying on one side with the treated ear uppermost and the candle vertical. The candle can be stuck through a paper plate or aluminum pie tin to protect against any hot wax or ash falling onto the skin or hair.

The flame is cut back occasionally with scissors and extinguished between two and four inches from the subject. The experience is generally described as being unusual, but pleasant and relaxing. Some people may hear some crackling and popping, or feel some heat during the ear candling session. People who have ear tubes, perforated ear drums, or artificial ear drums should not do ear candling.

    "Marina Yoga & Reiki felt like a home where I was able to recuperate from stresses and rejuvenate my spirit. I stayed for 5 days in order to complete the Reiki level 1 course at a nice comfortable pace, where I was also able to relax and explore the surrounding area of Krabi (Ao Nang and Krabi Town). "

    "The location is set in a rural area which offers a peaceful reclusion from town, yet only a few minutes away (motorbike) from the Ao Nang strip for shopping and many great restaurants with all types of food you can imagine. Krabi town is only about 15 minutes away, which offers a deeper insight into the local culture, including more authentic Thai restaurants, and Walking Street on Fri/Sat/Sun with many stalls selling street food and local crafts. The roads to/fro Krabi town are surrounded by tall, beautiful Limestone Karst formations which have been the backdrop to many movies, and exude a powerful natural energy all around. There are hundreds of islands and beaches to visit nearby, which I will be exploring when I return on my next holiday."

    "Level 1 was an eye-opener for me, as I was not sure what to expect but that I wanted to learn more about myself and my capabilities, including all types of healing. The coursework introduced the mostly hidden aspects of physical discomfort being caused by an imbalance of our spiritual nature, and explores symbols of understanding with more specificity in how to correct the energy flow in our bodies by examining our Chakras and Yin/Yang energy. My experience throughout the course included a realization, through opening the gates of the unconscious, which after having to now attend to these previously submerged thoughts, allowed me to be more alert to the subtle energies within me. It was a spiritual detoxification to allow for more harmony and balance, and served as a reminder to be conscious of myself; and in the case of imbalance, to recognize and correct. It is now part of my daily Work."

    "Yoga was included in the course package, and I attended the yoga classes every morning after the provided breakfast. My prior experience with yoga was not much as a beginner, and I had never enjoyed any yoga class that I ever attended. Surprisingly, I had a much better experience at Marina’s Shala, and it actually felt great. The yoga teacher was amazing, demonstrating each movement so a beginner can understand and providing additional instructions for more advanced students, as the class flowed at a very comfortable pace while we shifted into different postures. The actual feeling of releasing muscle tension and flushing out of toxins was also encouraging for me."

    "Marina was very flexible in accommodating me during the 1 week break from her Yoga Teacher Training courses. She was attentive and very patient to answer my many questions during the Reiki course until I grasped a full understanding before moving on with the lessons. There are a bunch of cool cats that Marina has adopted from the community, and neighborhood dogs that patrol the area like security guards; also very loyal and friendly to the guests."

    "I recommend Marina Yoga & Reiki for anyone looking to grow spiritually and gain new life skills/experiences. Looking forward to return soon!"

    "The setting is beautiful and the shala, kitchen, rooftop terrace and the garden are just lovely arranged. You can see that Marina did everything with passion and love. She is very carying and makes everything possible to let you feel comfortable and welcome. She puts so much effort and energy in her teaching and she has so much experience that I could learn more than I imagined before. I will come back one day. Thank you marina."

    "Overall I am so glad I did this, and I have no regrets. I am very please with this program that I choose. Very welcoming and friendly staff that took care of you and made sure you felt comfortable and at home. The contents were excellent, especially the lectures. I felt like I got a lot more than what I thought I would be getting. One thing that could improve would be the communication among ALL the teachers, so we are all on the same page about what to expect in terms of traditional asanas or more modified asanas. I really enjoyed the different types of mediation that we did. The yoga center was very cute...The shala and the rooms were well decorated and clean. Beware though of the mosquitoes and other insects that can bite you. You are in a jungle, (10 min on Tuk Tuk from the Town of Ao Nang) so do expect to see insects, frogs, snakes, etc. Thank you for the life changing experience. I would recommend other people who are considering to try it out as well. "

    "Going here was one of my best decisions. I stayed at Marinas center for 5 days. Yoga, meditation and Reiki healing sessions. All was new to me and Marina and the yoga teachers were really helpful and kind. I stayed at a bungalow which was super nice. Sessions with Marina were spectacular. I learned a lot from her and found what I needed from the experience. Place with peace and warm heart here. Would highly recommend this place. Namaste Marina. See you again :)"

    "Marina Yoga & Reiki is a little piece of paradise on earth, allowing you to come back to your true self. I would recommend visiting this place when you want to deepen your yoga practice, learn and/or receive reiki, want to escape the hassle of daily life and give some loving, healing time to yourself. In the one month I've spent here, I've learned so much on so many levels and I'm very happy that I decided to come here. I will definitely come back one day! <3"

    "I would recommend Marina Yoga for Marina herself, her warm and generous personality. She does reiki, past life regression and, but i haven't tried this one, chamanism. She has a comforting approach to people and can help in one's life. The yoga was OK but when I was there the focus was on a group of girls doing a teacher training retreat. Ao nang is not my cup of tea but with a scooter or by boat you can reach nice, though a little bit far away beaches. "

    " I stayed at Marina Yoga for a week in Jan 2016. I did my reiki master course here with Marina. The course was mostly one on one for a week and Marina was the most thoughtful and caring teacher. But she has also been very strict in terms of required knowledge and self work - which makes her an excellent teacher. She goes above and beyond to make sure she gives each and every student exactly what she needs. I also did quite a few yoga classes and some trips with the yoga students, and I loved all of it. All the yoga teachers were excellent. The accommodation was simple, but clean. Thank you very much Marina for your care during my stay and I hope I'll be back soon. I really recommend this place to everyone who comes with an open heart and desire to learn "

    "I recommend this program for anyone interested in a YTT course. I learned so much and it was wonderful to spend a month immersed in the science and philosophy of yoga with few outside distractions. I feel I gained the knowledge and qualifications to safely instruct a yoga class. That being said, each course will be different as the instructors are different. We had a variety of 6 different instructors, all highly knowledgeable and good at conveying their knowledge. Four of the six instructors were temporary work-exchange type volunteers so I can't attest to the instructors qualifications for any future courses. The yoga center was very peaceful and basic which was fine. Only cold water showers, fan only (no AC), and lots of communing with nature in the form of sharing your room with geckos and occasionally friendly harmless spiders. Not a luxury resort by any means but lovely and has what you need. Open air kitchen shared with all participants. Please note, if you are not an "animal person" (don't like cats and dogs) then this may not be the place for you as there are more than a dozen (very friendly) resident outdoor dogs and cats. Just a heads up."

    " I had an amazing experience at Marina Yoga, Marina is a great person and is doing all this with her heart. We had several teachers, all of them were great and I learned a lot about yoga, meditation and philosophy. I enjoyed the classes and also the free time spending it with other members of our group. We had a lot of fun, even though it was quite intense and we were tired physically and mentally. I feel very good and enriched after the course and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes yoga. "

    " We attended the October 2015 yoga teacher training (200 hours) at Marina Yoga. We came here hoping to deepen our knowledge of yoga but gained so much more! This course is very well structured, covering a range of yoga styles (hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, yin, kundalini, karma yoga) and meditation styles (healing, kundalini, art, vipassana, yoga nidra). The classes are well planned and taught - teachers use slides and group discussion/demonstration, course materials are provided for extra reading. Learning how to Level 1 Reiki was an excellent complement to the yoga course as it develops your understanding and skills with alternative healing techniques.Marina is a very special woman with amazing energy who deeply cares about each of her students personal progress. The school fosters a nurturing and fun environment, and we bonded closely with out peers to form life long friendships.I highly recommend that you visit Marina Yoga for a life changing and fulfilling yoga and healing experience. Thank you Marina, Dom, Alex and Renata for everything you taught us. Namaste. "

    " My experience at Marina Yoga was just that.. An experience.. So much more amazing than I ever could have imagined! The knowledge, breakthroughs, and adventures I experienced were so fabulous! Marina and her staff are absolutely out of this world amazing. I have such an admiration for these people, and the word respect does not do justice for how I feel about these wonderful people. So full of love, and passion for everything that epitomizes yoga. They live, breathe, and are all things Yoga. I signed up for this course mainly to deepen my own practice. But being here has given me a whole new respect for the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of Yoga. I have been inspired to go out and share.. It has given me the inspiration and confidence to teach!! The classes.. Meditation, anatomy, theory, Sanskrit, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Hatha, Kundalini, Pranayama, Reiki.. And so much more! I now understand the importance of learning to be still and present in the moment and how it translates to our daily lives!! It's about leading a healthy, moral life, and taking what the universe (or God) throws at you, and learning to work with what youve got in the moment, seeing everything for the lesson, or experience that is being presented! When people say that going through yoga teacher training is a transformational experience, theyre not kidding!! I cannot put into words how highly I recommend Marina Yoga! Ten stars!!! "

You are definitely right by Marina Yoga.You enter to a lovely place in the middle of nature and welcoming you a smiling teacher and her lovely animals. My husband and i did there Reiki master course. It was a really amazing experience. She is a really good teacher. We have learned a lot. We are very happy that we were there. We were there with our baby and she helped us to find a very good baby daycare that we can fully concentrate on our course. Everything went alright. Thank you for everything Marina.

    "I have just finished the YTT course along with the master Reiki teacher level. I could not have been happier with the experience. The combination of yoga practice/philosophy/theory, Reiki, daily meditations, allowed me to look deep inside myself, forgetting the material world. Marina embraces everyone with open arms, who have been through all walks of life. She is knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate, and is a ball of energy which is contagious. I spent a total of five weeks and loved every moment. The place is beautiful & clean, but not flashy. It has its own character in the midst of nature, which made me feel a home, grounding me immediately. The people, the animals, the energy that it attracts were all a great addition to my experience. What I got out of it is truly priceless. Thank you Marina and team (Alex, Dominika, Joseba) for teaching from the heart. What you gave to me are the tools, knowledge and confidence to spread to the world the healing benefits of yoga & Reiki."

I was desperate to talk to someone. Marina spent hours and hours with me. Marina held me convert one of the worst experiences of my life into a positive. A bedrock for the next stage of my life. She is a honest and compassionate woman. She helped me meditate and look into myself like I never have before. It was a true turning point in my life. Thank you Marina."

    "What an amazing experience! I can highly recommend Marina Yoga to anyone. I have done the yoga teacher course 200hrs and the Reiki master course. All together I was there for a month. Yoga and Reiki mix together perfectly, giving attention to body, mind and soul even more profoundly. Marina is a very competent teacher and passionate in her teachings. I loved every minute of the experience and tried to absorb as much as I possibly could. The more you put in, the more you take out of it. The other yoga teachers that were there, were great as well. The atmosphere is relaxed and open and the classes are great. The place attracts lovely people who add to the whole experience. The room that I was staying in was very nice; a new building with everything you might need. The shared kitchen is great for cooking together, although you can order in as well. Besides yoga and Reiki, you can also have other treatments. I have had a couple and each were worthwhile Ask Marina for the options. I would love to go back someday!"

    "I signed up for yoga, meditation and Reiki level 1 at Marina Yoga over a 3-week period. I would highly recommend the yoga classes for people of all levels. The teachers are excellent!The natural setting within rubber plantations is also a bonus. Really appreciate the thoughtful details such as the yoga accessories ( with lots of freshly laundered towels), the cut fruits on a hot morning and the little sheltered outdoor seating for relaxing before and after classes.Personally, I found the Reiki Level 1 with Marina to be quite the revelatory and life-changing experience. I like the way the lessons are flexible and tailored to suit or address the students' needs. Marina is very knowledgable and a treasure trove of experiences which she gladly shares.The shared rooms are bright, clean and cosy. Ditto for common bath, although cold shower only. Great WiFi. There is a simple but great communal outdoor kitchen. Overall - Great place with great people!"

The course material and contact hours are well organized and planned out to make sure you can complete the course on time. Marina is full of knowledge and experience and always there to help and teach from her heart. There was also an unexpected reiki course really adding to the value of the course. The accommodations are nice and clean and the yoga Shala is absolutely beautiful and full of great energy. I couldn't have asked for anything more and recommend a visit to marina yoga whether it's for teacher training, reiki healing, or just a yoga class. Thanks again for everything Marina!"

    "My friend and I were checking out yoga studios before arriving in Krabi. There was 2 more popular ones - Marina Yoga and Aonang Yoga. After checking out photos of the 2 places, we decided to choose Marina Yoga as the place looks very unpretentious, rustic and charming.As our hotel is in Ao Nang and Marina Yoga is around 15 minutes drive away (en-route to Krabi town), Marina even provided complimentary shuttle to and from our hotel! That was a lovely gesture that we really appreciated. Each class is 350 THB (~14 SGD) and should be 60 minutes long. However, all the classes stretched to 90 minutes which was just right!We tried both Hatha and Ashtanga yoga. I have been practising yoga for 5 years both in London and Singapore and I have to say Dominique (a French lady instructor) is the best instructor I have ever had. She provides just the right amount of explanation about each pose without it sounding life a lecture. She does each pose to show the right way of doing it, which was very useful for beginners. Even in a class of 10, she moves around between poses to correct each student.And after each class, we would sit and mingle in Marina's little hut pavilion and snacked on cut papayas from her own garden. Everyone we met at Marina Yoga exudes such warmth and positive vibes. The place is in the midst of rubber plantations, so you will not get much noise or disturbances. It's almost like being completely in nature.All in all, this is a must-try place in Krabi if you like yoga or want to try yoga for the first time! I'm very sure I will be back, maybe even for the yoga instructor course!"

    "I stayed in Ao Nang and went to see Marina for a Reiki session after having dealt with a constant pain in my ear. She opened her door and welcomed me with a warm heart. She immediately understood my needs and was able to help me. Not only with the ear pain but also with the heart one. She is a wonderful Reiki master and I decided it was time for me to do my initiation. She made me confidant that there is a true connection happening with the universe and that one should always listen carefully. I will see her soon for some more practice and can't wait to share this with her and who knows, with the world. Thank you for taking the time (on a Sunday morning) to help me, you will always remain the first person I trusted enough to make it happen! I highly recommend you pay her and her beautiful dogs a visit (the yoga place is amazing)."

I did not know quite what to expect, but it soon became clear that this was going to be a very special experience. The venue has an amazing shala and beautiful rooms, located in a lush garden. The vegetarian food is excellent, as is the pool where you can spend your time off."
