About YIN Yoga & The Training
Yin Yoga is a quiet, healing and meditative practice. In this style of yoga we slowly and gently stretch the connective tissues of the body, over time gaining more flexibility as well as increasing the range of motion and lubrication in the joints. This practice gives us the time and space to go inward and learn to reconnect with the present moment and ourselves.
In this training you will learn the principles and philosophy of Yin Yoga, anatomy of the physical and the energetic systems of the body, the postures of Yin Yoga, alignment of the poses and how to properly and comfortably support the body using props. There will also be a detailed portion of the training on combining hands on adjustments, meditation and sound therapy to create the perfect Yin Yoga class. This is an experiential training for anyone who is already teaching or is looking to learn how to teach Yin Yoga, as well as students who are interested in the body and the healing practice of Yin Yoga.

How to Prepare for a Reiki Attunement:
A Reiki attunement is a process of empowerment that opens your crown, heart and palm chakras and connects you to the unlimited source of Reiki energy. During the attunement, and for some time after, changes will be made by the attunement energy to enable you to channel Reiki. These changes take place metaphysically in the chakras, aura and in the physical body. An emotional as well as a physical toxic release can take place as part of this clearing process.
In order to improve the results you receive during the attunement, a process of purification is recommended one week before your Reiki attunement. This will allow the attunement energies to work more efficiently and create greater benefits for you. The following steps are optional; follow them if you feel guided to do so.
- Eat clean wholesome foods with high vibrations such as: Fresh organic fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and seeds
- Drink plenty of water (at least ½ your body weight in ounces)
- Get an adequate amount of rest the week prior
- Eliminate or minimize the use of sugar, caffeine, drugs, alcohol and tobacco (No alcohol use for at least three days prior to the attunement)
- Get 30min-1hr of daily physical exercise
- Meditate for ½ hour each day
- Go for quiet walks, and spend time in nature
- Begin to journal your thoughts, feelings and emotions

“I met Kristi and Kelli during my 200hr YTT at Trilogy Sanctuary and I was immediately drawn to their energy. They are two powerful healers that just want to take care of your heart .
My first Yin class with Kristi was love at first breath. I was instantly drawn to incorporate this into my Yoga practice and signed up for the Yin Training and Certification. This led me to explore Reiki and I knew I wanted my Masters in this training to be Kelli and Kristi at Spirit Made Us Do It.
I have been blessed with Divine Timing, where everything is happening when and as it should. I have learned to trust, love and embrace new experiences, ideas, and people. I am forever changed after my Reiki Level 1 and 2 Attunements and incorporate my new-found tools in my daily life and practice. All my friends and family have commented on the happiness, love and positiveness with which I approach each situation, as well as the energy I have and feel within me. A new peace and beauty surrounds me.
Yoga, Yin and Reiki. I started this spiritual journey looking for self-healing in my mind, body and spirit and in the process I have discovered my own gifts as a healer. Some of my best spiritual experiences and most profound growth have happened in this past year and I have the loving guidance, wisdom and support of my teachers and healers at Spirit Made Us Do It to thank.” Kim D
“Kristi & Kelli are the dynamic duo! Ever since I took yin class with them I was hooked. I walked out of there feeling like I was on top of the world. I thought this is too good to be true, I mean yin is like the adult nap we all wish we had since kinder. I decided to sign up for Kristi & Kelli's Yin Yoga Teacher Training at Trilogy right away. Till this day, I think about their synergy and co-creation because it inspired me to do the same. During Yin training, we covered all that was necessary, step by step and in depth, to be a part of the yin movement. For example simple and effective principles, history, benefits, anatomy, asanas, sound healing and more! I recommend this transformational experience, even if it is just for personal and spiritual growth, because it has changed my life for the better. Also, if you are looking to connect with like minded souls this is the perfect opportunity for you. I hope you embark on this journey with excitement to live, laugh and learn. Thank you Kristi & Kelli for co-existing in peace and harmony. Much love and light.” Valerie V
