Practice Info
Chakra Balancing

Chakras are energy centers connecting the energetic (pranic) body with the gross (physical) body. Chakra balancing works on the tangible and subtle energy levels of the body. It aligns the energy pathways and removes blockages caused by emotions, thoughts, and life situations.

Prenatal Swedish Massage

Prenatal Swedish massage utilizes Swedish massage strokes—compression, gliding, kneading, and friction—to target the specific aches and pains that go along with pregnancy, such as low back pain, sciatica, round ligament pain, and feet and leg pain or swelling. As with any massage, the therapist will tailor the session to meet the needs of a given client. Prenatal massage is generally done in a side-lying position. If you have a high-risk pregnancy or a pregnancy-related condition such as pregnancy-induced hypertension, be sure to let the therapist know before your session.

Prenatal Thai Yoga

Prenatal Thai Yoga is a gentle system of stretching and relaxation suitable for the particular condition of mothers-to-be. It is appropriate in the second and third trimesters of pregnancies without complications. Thai Yoga can help to alleviate some of the tension in the back and strain on the legs associated with pregnancy and can increase flexibility in the hips and groin. Most important, Thai Yoga cultivates a mentally and physically peaceful state in the mother, helping her to reduce stress and build confidence in preparation for the experience of birth.


Why not thank your feet and hands for all they do for you? Reflexology stimulates various points that correspond to the organs and structures of the body, thereby promoting relaxation and internal healing, as well as improving circulation and balance. Gentle pressure is used to wonderful effect while you sit back, rest, and relax.


Reiki is a gentle, balancing, transformational spiritual practice. It is generally experienced as deeply relaxing and refreshing. Reiki’s universal nature makes it suitable for all states of being. Reiki is practiced either through light touch or with the hands slightly off the body. Reiki has no known medical contraindications, and recipients are fully clothed and aware at all times.

Shamanic Healing

Shamanic Extraction: Shamanic extraction is an energy-clearing technique that has been successfully used for centuries to clean one’s energy field of an “intrusion”— perhaps from a trauma, surgery, organ implant, or emotional wound that has resisted other kinds of therapies. Following a non-touch method of sensing the location and type of intrusion, the practitioner energetically gathers the offending matter and releases it.

Soul Retrieval: In shamanic terms, a part of the soul may sometimes “choose” to leave following physical or emotional danger or trauma. In this session the client and the shamanic practitioner lie on the floor side by side while helping spirits guide the practitioner on a shamanic journey to locate and retrieve the client’s lost soul parts. Then those parts are blown back into the client’s crown and heart centers.


Shiatsu, whose name is the Japanese word for “finger pressure,” is healing massage that uses acupressure techniques along the body’s meridian lines, or energy channels. The practitioner applies pressure with hands, thumbs, elbows, and knees. This helps to balance energy flow, increases healthy functioning of the body’s vital organs, and relaxes and rejuvenates muscle tissue.

A Network of Integral Yoga
The community of Integral Yoga exists around the world, with Integral Yoga institutes and centers on six of the seven continents. Integral Yoga is also a founding member of the Yoga Alliance (the national organization of Yoga teachers).

Truth is One, Paths are Many
The international headquarters of Integral Yoga, Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville, in Buckingham, Virginia, is a large community dedicated to the teachings of Swami Satchidananda. Yogaville is home to the LOTUS (Light Of Truth Universal Shrine), which opened in July 1986. The shrine—inspired and designed by Sri Gurudev—is dedicated to the light of all faiths and to world peace and stands as a beautiful example of the universal teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda.
