It is my purpose in life to help people discover and nourish their Inner Light, and to teach them how to heal themselves.
I have a life-long passion for helping people of all ages develop mind, body and spirit wellness, and do this through workshops, intuitive energy healing, private yoga sessions, and yoga classes designed to nourish all aspects of the individual.
In 2005, I began training as a Reiki practitioner and became a Reiki Master in 2007, and Master Teacher in 2019. I have worked with individual clients and as a volunteer for Reiki in Hospitals programs.
I began my yoga and meditation journey at age 11, after which time I practiced many different styles, on and off until 2004, when I began a regular practice. In 2017, I completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training in vinyasa and children's yoga.
Called to be a healer before then, I earned a PhD in Developmental Psychology, focusing on how bio-psycho-social factors influence healthy human development throughout the lifespan. I served on the board of trustees of The Montessori School in Wilton, CT for 6 years, and during that time studied the work of Maria Montessori.
I am the author of Growing Toward Balance: Achievable Ideas for Bringing Balance to Your Body, Mind, and Spirit, available on Amazon and other places.
In addition, I am a Certified Life Coach, and have also studied herbalism, past life regression therapy, Pranashakti Healing, mandalas for healing, Peruvian shamanism, and medical intuition. I also hold a BA in Fine Arts.
I offer my energy healing Refresh Yoga Center, 110 King St. 2nd Fl. Alexandria, VA 22314.
With Love, Light, and Gratitude,
Mary Hoyt Kearns, PhD
