My name is Rajni. I derived my business name, "Gaia Services" from the hypothesis that Gaia, the earth is a vast self-regulating organism. Just as our earth “Gaia” is a self-regulating complex system with a propensity to evolve, thus are we as individuals and collectively.
I have studied and experienced many spiritual tools throughout my life and have found that mindfulness and embodiment practices have assisted me the most to evolve toward wholeness.
As we heal our inner landscape, our outer environment begins to reflect that. When we truly connect with who we are, then we can more easily share our own unique gifts to others in our community, thus inspiring all beings to evolve.
I invite you to browse all the pages to explore all the ways i choose to serve others and the planet. Feel free to reach out with any questions or inquiries.
Awakens the life force energy that sits dormant at the base of the spine.
We use “Kriya”, a set of exercises for a particular purpose which may contain the tools of asana (physical movements), pranayama (breathing exercises), mudra (hand positions), mantra (sound vibration), bandas (body locks) & meditation to explore our inner landscape.
Classes are designed for all levels. You do what you can, creating room for increased awareness, flexibility and lung capacity. As time allows, the class may include a gong relaxation which helps restore the nervous system.
BENEFITS OF KUNDALINI YOGA
The practice of Kundalini Yoga balances the glandular system, strengthens the nervous system, and enables us to harness the energy of the mind and the emotions, so we can be in control of ourselves, rather than being controlled by our thoughts and feelings. A regular practice of Kundalini Yoga helps us cope with the daily challenges and stresses of life.
Yin/Yang Yoga is a practice that balances the feminine and masculaine energies within all of us. Yin/Yang yoga has its roots in the Taoist concepts of yin — a feminine, passive, cooling energy — and yang — a masculine, dynamic, warming energy.
In the Yin shapes we release, let go and allow gravity to move us into an appropriate edge then become still. In this way we stimulate the meridian system which can release stagnant energy. During the more active Yang part of our practice we create heat and move the energy through the body creating strength and vitality.
A typical class will start in a yin shape, followed by some warm ups before moving into the yang flow, then we will cool back down with a few more yin shapes, always ending in a resting pose to integrate the practice. This class is appropriate for all levels. We encourage participants to meet and accept themselves exactly where they are.
5 Element Dance The 5 Element dance practice combines the freedom of movement within the structure of Taoist 5 element theory.
The 5 elements are jin (metal), mu (wood), shui (water), huo (fire), tu (earth). Chinese five elements in daily life were regarded as the foundation of everything in the universe and natural phenomena.
Through gentle guidance, participants are encouraged to explore each element within their body as they move through the space.
A Gong Bath is an ancient, multi-dimensional form of sound healing meditation that washes vibrations through the body and around the energic field of the participant. Described by Gong Master Don Conreaux, “the gong is known as an instrument of transformational power” and translates to “an engine of power releasing tone resonance and complex harmonics that are transferred to the recipient.”
A gong bath calms the nervous system allowing you to completely relax and will usually leave you feeling refreshed. * Participants in these sacred sound healing meditations may experience one or all of these; intensely introspective or expanded cosmic awareness, often fusing into some combination of the two while helping you shed that which does not serve you. To this end, some people to a lesser degree have described an uncomfortable feeling which is usually a result of moving stagnant energies. Participants are encouraged to lay in complete stillness to allow the vibrations the opportunity to create an effect of healing on your body, mind, and spirit.
I am passionate about bringing people together to connect,
especially in the areas of healthy mind/body/spirit, food, our environment.
