Jiiva Yoga Opens Doors in Stratford
Located in Stratford, Jiiva Yoga & Wellness is a new center offering a variety of yoga classes, massage, private Reiki sessions and a Reiki school with the traditional Usui method in Reiki I, Reiki II and masters.
Berta Prevosti, Jiiva Yoga’s owner and a Reiki master and teacher, has practiced in the holistic field for more than 20 years. In addition to meditation, yoga classes include restorative, mommy & me, all level vinyasa, tiny tots and more. “Our goal is to create a center in the community where people can join together for an enriching, educational, healing experience,” says Prevosti.
To that end, a host of events are planned for the coming month. Upcoming workshops include Yoga for Anxiety on March 5 from 12:30 to 3p ($35 per person or $45 at the door). A Reiki I class will be held March 12 from 11am to 5pm. Participants can learn the ancient art of hands-on healing through a series of attunements to align the upper four chakras. The workshop is $150 (early bird price $125). No prerequisite is necessary. Yin and Yang Yoga will be offered on March 13 from 1-3pm ($25 per person, $30 at the door). The class will include warming the muscles and fascia using vinyasa yoga followed by holding poses longer and settling into restorative poses.
A Couples Thai Yoga Massage workshop will take place on March 19 from 1-3pm at $50 per couple. Learn how you and a partner can ease each other’s tensions, cleanse and attune your pranamaya kosha (energy body) and practice metta (loving kindness) with each other. This type of massage helps increase flexibility, relieve stress and give greater awareness of body and mind.
