Shamanic Reiki is a form of energy healing. It is the merging of two of ancient healing modalities (Shamanism + Reiki) to create balance in our subtle body and deep trust in ourselves. It builds upon the principle of self reliance as we navigate our healing journey.

Shamanism is one of the oldest forms of spiritual practice that exists today. It is not a religion, it is a technique that relies on our connection to Great Nature. In Shamanism, we connect to the wisdom of the Great Spirit and Mother Nature to guide us through our awakening process. Shamanism is one of the most powerful tools we can use to awaken self love. 

Reiki works directly with our personal nature in the form of energy. It's simple, safe and easy. The word Reiki comes from Japan and is generally translated as “universal life force." Practicing Reiki means becoming a conduit or universal energy (breath, qi, or Ki), allowing it to flow through us promoting health, harmony, balance and wellbeing.


Francesca is a mentor and senior teacher at Sky Ting yoga with 10 years of teaching experience. She specializes in a holistic approach, incorporating her life experience and her in depth yoga, embodiment and energy healing training to create the perfect environment for self care and wellbeing. 

Growing up in Ecuador (a small country in South America) Francesca was exposed to her Amazonian and Andean indigenous ancestors and their wisdom. Spending time with indigenous and modern healers around the world, Francesca discovered the profound value of shamanism, plant spirit medicine, energy work, holistic healing and other time tested teachings and techniques used by indigenous healers. 

Her mission is to support your healing journey and a more conscious way of life for herself and her community. In this course, she shares personal and fascinating realizations she’s made and her own journey through depression, childhood trauma, and her calling to guide others to awaken and heal.


No experience is required. 

This is not a training program but an open level self discovery and self healing course. No previous experience is required. The course contains a mix of in person and weekly zoom meditation circles, as well as self-guided embodiment practices. 

Expect to dedicate about 2-3 hours per week for the information.


By taking this course,
I will shed light on the places in me that have been hurt, asleep or numb.
I will build awareness of what is limiting me,
so that I can release the energy that’s holding me back
and step into a new way of being.
I will tend to myself with kindness, gentleness, and ease.
I will create opportunities to practice self love, self care, and self respect,
so that I feel worthy of receiving
all of the love that life has to give me.

SKY TING was created for anyone looking for tools and techniques to handle life more gracefully and see the magic in a long life lived. We offer a practice that refines our ability to stay connected, be well-adjusted, develop greater consciousness, discover radiance, use life to our own advantage, and ultimately experience more JOY! SKY TING YOGA is medley of lineages. All styles of yoga have something different to offer, and cross-pollinating yogic material allows us to create a method wholly new and unique, yet refined with rich substance and history. Our teachers are encouraged to blend the yoga material they practice, identify most with, and believe in, rather than sticking to the prescribed, generic curriculum. This ideology creates a passionate, responsive and nurturing learning experience for our students. Our goal is to make the practice safe and approachable for anyone, while keeping the magic of yoga alive. (212) 203-5786 INFO@SKYTINGYOGA.COM @SKYTINGYOGA


Skyting is a beautiful and well-kept studio. It was such a pleasure to meet Josie who is equal parts other-worldly and approachable, it was a joy to learn from her! The one thing I will say is that I could have done with less posture labs and more lecture/discussion around the theory.

An extremely thoughtful, useful guide to how to dwell in these deep winter weeks, welcoming them as they provide an opportunity to turn inward for light and possibility. Also a great practical guide for staying physically as well as mentally limber.
