Please join Rose for a very special yoga meditation class called Yoga Nidra. This is not your typical mediation~ YN opens up doorways, releases blockages, it heals every organ, bone, muscle etc, it goes DEEP in to ALL levels of consciousness, releasing scars from traumas & abuses we have suffered from in this lifetime and more. Your YN takes you through the veils of life, afterlife, and previous lifetimes. We experience time travel, astro projection and it's also trippy!
It is said that Yoga Nidra is the most healing and best of all meditations. It has an emphasis on health and healing where habitual thinking and thought patterns are reduced or eliminated and it also helps with insomnia and stress reduction. It also brings an incredible calmness, quietness, clarity and is one of the deepest of all meditations. Yoga Nidra means Yogic Sleep and is a state of conscious Deep Sleep. In this Meditation, you remain in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focus the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on.. While Yoga Nidra is a state that is very relaxing, it is also used by Yogis to purify the Samskaras (negative energy & thought patterns). It’s also great for insomniacs and those who suffer with PTSD, as well as a powerful tool for manifesting. It also raises “Bodhi” our awareness or spiritual growth.
Rose was trained to teach Yoga Nidra Meditation in Brazil during her Yoga Therapist Training. She has brought this powerful healing meditation to WNY in 2006.

MOXIBUSTION- The Alternative to the Flu Shot
This year will be the 13th year we will be offering an "Alternative Flu Shot Remedy" which works with all strains of influenza. It is a Chinese Homeopathic Application which was 99% effective last season with our customers. The fee is $20 it takes 5 minutes at our studio and we discount families and groups greatly!
Influenza Morphs or changes every 13 days it’s called “drift”- so the medicinal flu shot derived from lasts years influenza- is totally ineffective! The Thimerosal in our medicinal flu shot is 49% Mercury, formaldehyde and other toxins. If you have had 5 consecutive flu shots in any decade your chance of getting Alzheimer’s disease is TEN TIMES HIGHER. This is partially due to the mercury and aluminum that is in every flu shot.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years; in fact, the actual Chinese character for acupuncture, translated literally, means "acupuncture-moxibustion." The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.
How does moxibustion work? Does it hurt?
There are two types of moxibustion: direct and indirect. In direct moxibustion, a small, cone-shaped amount of moxa is placed on top of an acupuncture point and burned. This type of moxibustion is further categorized into two types: scarring and non-scarring. With scarring moxibustion, the moxa is placed on a point, ignited, and allowed to remain onto the point until it burns out completely. This may lead to localized scarring, blisters and scarring after healing. With non-scarring moxibustion, the moxa is placed on the point and lit, but is extinguished or removed before it burns the skin. The patient will experience a pleasant heating sensation that penetrates deep into the skin, but should not experience any pain, blistering or scarring unless the moxa is left in place for too long.
Indirect moxibustion is currently the more popular form of care because there is a much lower risk of pain or burning. In indirect moxibustion, a practitioner lights one end of a moxa stick, roughly the shape and size of a cigar, and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area turns red. Another form of indirect moxibustion uses both acupuncture needles and moxa. A needle is inserted into an acupoint and retained. The tip of the needle is then wrapped in moxa and ignited, generating heat to the point and the surrounding area. After the desired effect is achieved, the moxa is extinguished and the needle(s) removed.
What is moxibustion used for?
In traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion is used on people who have a cold or stagnant condition. The burning of moxa is believed to expel cold and warm the meridians, which leads to smoother flow of blood and qi. In Western medicine, moxibustion has successfully been used to turn breech babies into a normal head-down position prior to childbirth. A landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 found that up to 75% of women suffering from breech presentations before childbirth had fetuses that rotated to the normal position after receiving moxibustion at an acupuncture point on the Bladder meridian. Other studies have shown that moxibustion increases the movement of the fetus in pregnant women, and may reduce the symptoms of menstrual cramps when used in conjunction with traditional acupuncture. Moxibustion is also used for many other purposes in conjunction with acupressure and acupuncture.
At our Studio we use indirect moxibustion (without needles) to simply warm the skin and the meridians directly responding to the immune. The technique is quick and virtually painless. We also recommend taking Vitamin D3 supplements, Silver Sol (we carry this priced way below suggested retail price), washing hands frequently and avoid touching your face.
