Reiki Master Teacher
Barb Schaeffer is a wife, mother of three adult children, and spent many years in sales and the auto-service business. Barb found yoga over 20 years ago when a friend gave her a video of Yoga, Pilates and Dance. She instantly fell in love with the results of her “workout” video. After battling autoimmune disease and two spine surgeries, she found her way back to her yoga mat because her body needed relief from chronic pain. Being at a different place in her life, she realized almost immediately that this practice was more about meditation, self-love, self-awareness and energy balancing than it was about the physical exercise. She was immediately drawn to the spiritual aspect of yoga.
Barb believes that finding balance on your mat enables you to find balance in everyday life. Learning to use your breath as a tool when dealing with anxiety and fear improves emotional health. Yoga taps into every aspect of healing which complements her profession as an energy healer. Knowing that the result of unbalanced energy can cause physical health issues she was led to energy medicine. In 2014, she started a journey towards learning about chakra balancing, and healing touch through the use of essential oils and became a Reiki Practitioner. In 2017, she became a Reiki Master and Teacher, and two years later she completed her RYT-200 yoga teacher training with Revival Wellness Yoga Studio. She brings healing energy into all her teachings through essential oils, Reiki and healing touch.
