Acu-Yoga with Molly Williams & Zoe Culbertson

Saturday, September 28, 2019

2:00-4:30 PM

$35 in advance | $40 day-of

Experience the ancient arts of yoga, shiatsu, Reiki, and acupuncture in one revitalizing practice!

Licensed acupuncturist, shiatsu practitioner and herbalist, Zoe Culbertson, and certified yoga instructor, life coach, and Reiki Master, Molly Williams, combine multiple healing modalities to help harmonize your body and mind as we shift into fall. 

Yin yoga – a slow, meditative practice appropriate for all levels– offers a sense of deep stretching while actually “stressing” and strengthening the deeper connective tissues.  Most poses are held for 1--5 minutes, on the ground, allowing time and gravity to gradually open the body and stimulate the organ systems and meridians activated this time of year. As you are introduced to the Chinese medicine principles that govern our body’s health and energy, you will learn how to activate your own acupressure points to unblock energy and benefit your immune system. Throughout the practice, you will receive lots of hands-on assists and shiatsu.

The workshop culminates in a deeply nourishing, extended 30-minute savasana with guided meditation, Reiki, and an optional mini-acupuncture treatment! Appropriate for all levels.

About Your Teacher: Christina DeLuca

Christina started practicing yoga in 2008 while living in the Boston area. The physical practice was what originally kept her coming back to her mat, but soon after she realized there was much more to her practice than just moving her body.  She found mindfulness in yoga that she could not find anywhere else in her life. 

After attending many classes and workshops she decided to get her 200-hour certification through Prana Power Yoga in 2011.  Before moving to the north shore she had taught at multiple studios in the greater Boston area and successfully managed one of those studios.

She practiced and instructed yoga through the pregnancies of her two daughters and went on to get her certification in prenatal yoga through OM Births. Christina also has her Reiki 1 certification under Jene Rossi, has done on one trainings with Alex Amorosi, and restful yoga training with Sandy Kalik.

She loves teaching a strong, mindful and playful flow in both her traditional and prenatal classes.
