Aurena Green

Reiki Master & Yoga Instructor

I am a Reiki Master and yoga instructor here at Joyful. I was introduced to yoga in 2009, and completed my 200-hour training eight years later. It was through this practice that I gained a clearer understanding of the relationship between my body and mind, and a greater appreciation for all that they do for me. As a teacher I hope to inspire my studentsto foster a sense of compassion towards themselves, while also encouraging them to challenge themselves throughout their practice.

Not only has yoga enriched my life with its endless lessons and possibilities, but it has also served as a conduit for me to explore different realms of holistic healing. It was the first place where I could clearly feel the Reiki—the universal energy—flowing through me. In 2017 I got my Reiki Master Teacher certification and opened up a practice in Virginia, where I am from. Sharing this art of energy healing has been one of the most invaluable, precious experiences of my entire life. Reiki allows me to create a safe and nurturing environment for my clients; a space where negative energy can be released, andharmony restored.

I have always wanted to be a mental health counselor, and the practices of yoga and Reikihave inspired me to take on an integrative approach to healing. I cannot wait to see what the future holds as this path continues to unfold for me.

I look forward to connecting and sharing this sacred space with you.
