Texas Yoga Conference Day 0~ Breakfast Yoga Club Rocks Class + Reiki Experience
The weekend began with an insanely crazy morning Thursday. To prep to leave town for Breakfast Yoga Club Houston Rocks Dinner, I believe I’ve had the busiest morning I can totally remember. It was not even noon and:
I graduated a group from Bootcamp at my studio at 5:00 am, took my daughter to school at 7:00, took my son to school at 8:00, went to the grocery store, then went to the car shop. Found out that I had to get it over $680 worth of work done to my car! …made copies, washed my car, vacuumed the car, got gas, went to the bank. Really? Now onto BYC Rocks to teach tonite, then Texas Yoga Conference or BUST!
Houston we’re Rollin’ out!!
Rich was going to his very first conference with me! Road trip! After all that, we did leave only an hour behind schedule.
Got to the University of Houston to teach the Breakfast Yoga Club community class that night. Folded over 300 flyers on the way through Houston traffic, made it to the campus just in time to get the flyers stuffed by loving hands into all the gift bags for the TYC.
Time to unwind!
I had the opportunity to present vinyasa flow to an amazing supportive group of Yogis and Yoginis. Melissa Smith has created the BYC Houston from founder, Ricky Tran’s brainchild ideate bring together yogis throughout community events, no studio, no competition, just pure yoga.
We had an amazing turnout in the huge tent on the university lawn. Mat to mat probably 200 or more flowing bodies. So beautiful. We did a round robin class with 6 other BYC ambassadors.
The Sound And The Meaning played live while we taught.

The group of ambassadors all blissed out after leading, adjusting and enhancing a few hundred blissed out yogis.
After the class, Ruggles Green and the Juice Girl served food, people chatted and connected.
Then it was time to chill. Went to check in to my friend’s pad and out to eat with Jenny the TYC Founder and the group which consisted of some of the USA’s most incredible musical and yogic talent. Rara, from Yogi Tunes and electronic musician from Desert Dwellers, Chris and Maysa from Jouston, Willie Collins TYA atty and songwriter, Hamalayaa Bahl from Cali, Tami Apland from Oregon, Jenny Eddy me and Rich. Great conversation, lots of ideas, then after the first hour Rich bailed and went back to crash, I stayed up and ate with the group, no vino for me this trip. We both stayed on the Detox- gluten free, dairy free, veggie diet the entire weekend. It was actually easy. I brought a cooler with produce and snacks, my Magic Bullet and make us green smoothies.
I rode home with Jen and Tami and had a very strange experience. After I went to bed I was awakened by a girl in the next apartment screaming and crying at the top of her lungs. I was startled to say the least. She would stop, then I’d fall back to sleep, then she’s start up again, and sometimes cry out ‘I can’t take this anymore’ sobbing like a child. I was agitated but began to feel compassion and empathy. I began to wonder why someone would actually feel that strongly and such deep sadness and despair. The next time she awoke me I decided to knock on the wall lightly; to no avail. I then began to send her Reiki healing and light, I lifted her up and asked that the Reiki energy give her what she needed. It enabled me to fall back to sleep instantly and she stopped crying immediately and did not cry again.
Reiki energy is very real, and it is within us all. We simply use it without thinking when we hurt ourselves or our kids get hurt what do we do? We touch it or hold the hurt. This is Reiki. When you get attuned to the eery it is instantaneously like turning a faucet ON. The energy is always there, just becomes more intense or takes us quicker in to the place where we are balanced, aligned and ultimately free from physical entanglements. It may last only during the session or for hours, days or weeks. With practice it is always available simply with the thought vibration.
The recipient may or may not feel something. They don’t need to be attached to a belief or an experience for Reiki to benefit them. Reiki simply is.
