BreaRose Smith, Certified Reiki Practitioner
My journey began growing up in beautiful La Jolla, California. I moved East to attend Rutgers University, where I completed a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. After college I explored many vocations and found my place in holistic health and the healing arts.
I have been teaching yoga for six years and have completed trainings with education in vinyasa, ashtanga, anusara, and iyengar yoga, and have led multiple teacher trainings and workshops. I started an organization called “Service & Savasana,” where I put yoga class events on to raise money for different charities. In addition to yoga, I have studied to become a Reiki Master with The Spiritual Engineering Academy, I am a certified Akashic Records reader through The Linda Howe Center, studied meditation at the Deepak Chopra Center, and trained to be a certified Doula through DONA International.
There are many aspects of my life that contribute to the work I do today. These include my personal struggles with anxiety, depression, addiction, autoimmune disorders, and food sensitivities. I personally understand the anger, fear, and uncertainty of human suffering. I have also always felt the kind of love and joy that makes life worth living.
My own personal healing journey led me to discover the power of training the mind to "let go of" or decondition limiting beliefs that only prolong and increase suffering. Through this practice I have uncovered a deep love, compassion, and acceptance for myself, which is the largest contributor to my wellbeing. My wish is for all human beings to love themselves, flaws and all, and experience the liberating beautiful life that can come from that. If we do not love ourselves, how can we love one another?
I strive to approach the world and my work from a place of love, strength, diligence, truth, humor, and compassion. I approach every class or session with an intention to assist the individual in healing what stands in the way of the love and serenity that already exists within. I believe and see that on a soul level, each and every human being is impeccably beautiful and pure. Living as a human being on earth right now is hard—plain and simple truth, AND we all have the power to give ourselves the love we are constantly seeking. How do I know this? Because I am/have done it for myself.
I look forward to connecting with you!
