Reiki
Reiki is a very simple, non-intrusive process. Reiki energy flows into the client’s energy field, affecting the ki, and it also flows around the organs and tissues.  It enhances genki (healthy energy) flow that may be present, making it stronger.  It disempowers byoki (unhealthy energy) and prevents it from causing further harm. Reiki restores the natural flow of genki along with the person’s health.
 
The Reiki session sets in motion the body’s own self-healing process, which continues after the treatment is over. Reiki improves all body systems: circulation, neurological, digestive, respiratory and endocrine.  Reiki also moves in the deeper levels of the mind and spirit, easing out stress and uplifting the depressed, bringing rational thought and joy to life.

What people are saying:
 
I have always heard of Reiki and its benefits, and wanted to experience a Reiki treatment. However, I had never met a Reiki practitioner who I felt their energies were clear enough to work on me. Then I meet Kathleen McDonald. From the onset, I felt Kathleen to be grounded and clear in her energies and the way she moves in the world. Last week after being invited to a lovely breakfast with Kathleen, she later offered me the gift of a Reiki session. I am in gratitude for Kathleen’s generous offer, as my Reiki session was nothing short of amazing. Throughout my session, I saw a kaleidoscope of colours! I felt Peace-filled! I felt Open to all the Universe was offering! I felt cared for, and slept with my eyes ‘wide shut!’  After, my treatment I felt completely relaxed, and had clarity as how to proceed with challenges I had previously grappled. I would recommend Kathleen McDonald to anyone and everyone who is interested in having the experience of a Reiki treatment, as I myself plan to include Reiki treatments with my other healing modalities. - Naike, Toronto

I am a professional dancer who travels a lot for my career and am also a highly sensitive person (HSP) that is affected by my surroundings. A lot of times when I travel I can't control the environment that I end up staying in but as a performer, I always need to be at the top of my game, fully present in my body. I met with Kathleen for the energetic recharge that my body craved and she delivered. I got off her table feeling, refreshed, rejuvenated and totally grounded. I highly recommend Kathleen if you are looking to get recharged yourself. - Shara, Portland, Oregon

Group Yoga/Meditation & Yoga Nidra Classes
In a group setting you will learn and practice how to breathe correctly.  You will be guided in correct alignment and movement to stretch and move your body to remove energy blockages, discomfort and bring greater flexibility to your body and mind.  

The ultimate goal of your yoga practice is to prepare you to sit in meditation and allow your mind to be directed either to the breath or to a particular focus: breathing, sensations, thoughts, sounds, death, compassion, equanimity for example.  With concentration and enquiry you have an opportunity to examine barriers to your freedom and happiness. Kat will guide you to cultivate a sustained daily meditation practice.  An opportunity to practice yoga nidra (yogic sleep) will balance your energy, bring deep rest and resource your entire system.

Allow breath, movement and meditation to transform your experience of BodyMindSpirit and leave you feeling more like your true Self.
 

Yoga Therapy
Yoga Therapy is yoga for the individual with a different goal than group class yoga.  Yoga Therapy meets you where you are with a goal of improving your health at every level: physical, mental and emotional.  Yoga Therapy enquires and assesses your health history, current treatments and medications, current physical, mental and emotional condition, and your health and wellness goals.

Private sessions offer opportunity for you to relieve disease, discomfort and chronic conditions and return to an experience of wholeness. Together we can work therapeutically to improve your experience of limitations or conditions including:
   
  • Sport related injuries
  • Repetitive strain injuries 
  • Pain and conditions created from motor vehicle accidents 
  • Back pain and spinal compression
  • Heart disease 
  • Hormone balancing
  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Lack of mental clarity
  • Cancer and chronic disease
 
After a thorough consultation, a yoga practice will be tailored to suit your specific needs, capabilities, goals, and life circumstances. I will then teach you this personal practice.

Aligning breath and movement with awareness, you are invited to explore the essence of your own creation in the space of conscious awareness.  Pranayama, yang and yin elements of yoga asana, the principles of yoga philosophy, meditation and chanting are shared and explored on and off the mat.  Enjoy a private session and experience a journey to the return to yourself.

Kat is trained in the Ashtanga tradition, Yoga Therapy and Yin Yoga. She is a member of the Canadian Yoga Alliance - RYT-950+.
