Colleen is a yoga teacher, Thai body worker, and  reiki practitioner. She began her journey with reiki in 2012 receiving treatments to help lower stress. After a year of receiving treatments, Colleen found a reiki healer that she truly connected with and began working with her on a regular basis, helping to emotionally and physically heal herself. Through experiencing the multitude of benefits she gained from her regular treatments, Colleen fell in love with the practice of reiki and wanted to gain the certifications required to pass along healing opportunities to others. She began studying and became certified in 2017 and continues to study reiki through her teachers today. Colleen is honored and excited to be a part of the Half Moon Ayurveda team. She firmly lives, practices and believes in the healing power of yoga, ayurveda and reiki. She looks forward to providing a space for healing both on and off the mat.
