The ability to perform Reiki is passed on during an “attunement” given by Connie, a Reiki master, and allows the student to tap into life force energy to improve one’s health.

When Emily Wayborn goes home to visit her mom while on hiatus from her hit TV show, she receives a voicemail from her former best friend, Amber. Though the two were once notorious party girls, they haven’t spoken in years. Although the message might sound benign to anyone else, Amber uses a safe word that Emily recognizes, a word they always used to get out of sticky situations during their wild days. And what’s more chilling than the voicemail: it turns out that Amber has gone missing.

Determined to track down her friend, Emily follows a chain of clues that lead her to the enigmatic billionaire Reeve Sallis, a hotelier known for his shady dealings and play boy reputation. Now, in order to find Amber, Emily must seduce Reeve to learn his secrets and discover the whereabouts of her friend. But as she finds herself more entangled with him, she finds she’s drawn to Reeve for more than just his connection to Amber, despite her growing fear that he may be the enemy. When she’s forced to choose where her loyalty lies, how will she decide between saving Amber and saving her heart?

Joe embraced his gifts early in life to find that he is what is called a natural born medium. Since then, he has brought unique and specific healing messages to countless men and women all over Long Island and NYC. 

In a gallery reading, you will be witnessing the amazing way that spirit can use a medium to heal those here in the physical world. Everyone can get messages, but that all depends on what spirit decides they need to say and to who!  Expect you will hear exactly what you need to at that moment in time. Joseph asks that you come with an open heart and mind with the expectation that you will witness the beautiful healing power of spirit communication.

Walk-ins are welcome for any remaining class spaces that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our class sizes are small to provide individual attention, and we recommend that you reserve your class in advance. Most classes have a maximum booking of 6-8 students per class.    If a class is listed in solid red font on the calendar tab, the class is fully booked for the day.   We do keep waiting lists for classes which are fully booked.   If the class you would like to attend is sold out, please call us at (516) 557 2206, and we will add you to the waiting list for the class and contact you if a space opens up.

Each month, we offer class packages at a discounted class price.   The class packages vary from month to month.   We list the monthly package offer on this page and we also distribute a monthly email announcing the special for the following month.   The class packages can be purchased at the Moonflower Yoga studio, and are valid for the month of the package, i.e. the October package is valid for all classes on the October schedule.  If you have any questions regarding this, just give us a call at (516) 557 2206 or stop by the Moonflower Yoga studio and we will be happy to help you.

Moonflower Yoga also offers fun and varied workshops and events where you can learn something new.   Some of our past happenings  have included feng shui, meditation, women’s health issues, astrology, a gallery reading with a psychic medium, ways to move towards a healthier diet, crystals, creating your own mala beads, discovering essential oils, and tarot cards.   Workshop and events prices vary depending on the workshop or event. You can also purchase your workshop or event online by clicking on the class schedule tab above and completing the simple registration steps.

And check out our fun Moonflower Yoga Book Club!   It is a great way to meet new people and have lively conversation while enjoying some delicious homemade treats.   The Moonflower Yoga Book Club meets every 4- 6 weeks.   We generally meet on a Sunday afternoon, except for the summer months we will be meeting on a Friday evening.   You are welcome to read the book we have selected and join us.   If you haven’t read the book, you can still join us and help us decide what the next book selection should be.  We have also just added the Moonflower Yoga Needle Arts Group where members come together to work on their own individual pieces.   The members are offering to teach fellow members how to knit, crochet, or quilt.   Lots of fun!  Further details can be found by clicking on the Events tab above.
