Our Reiki Staff
Barbara Ellen Held, Reiki Shihan
Barbara was introduced to “energy” in 2005 during a massage, but it wasn’t until she began a Yoga practice in 2007 that she found Reiki. For the first time in her life she felt grounded, centered, and peaceful. She became a devoted Reiki Master in 2009, Reiki Master Teacher in 2010, and Shihan in 2018. Barbara incorporates Reiki into every aspect of her life, using Reiki with her hands, eyes, thoughts, breath, and heart. She begins her morning by sending it to all in need of healing and pauses throughout the day to send to people and creatures around her or in her thoughts. Her Reiki practice is enriched through her regular practice of meditation and contemplation. She provides Reiki to clients through private sessions and Yoga.
Daniel Sernicola, Reiki Shihan
Daniel is a Reiki Master Teacher and Shihan. He has been practicing Reiki since 2015. Daniel's teachers include Jodi Patton and Barbara Held. Daniel is co-founder of Danja Yoga and author of our program's Reiki training manuals and curriculum. Daniel is grateful for Reiki’s presence in his life. He is an active Yoga teacher and uses Reiki in many classes. Daniel has been seeing clients for over 5 years. He regularly works with clients in Danja's Reiki Studio.
Connie Rittmaier, Reiki Shinpiden
Connie was first introduced to Reiki and the benefits of Reiki energy by Daniel Sernicola as a complementary practice to her prescription medicine regimen for an autoimmune disorder. Along with finding the benefits of Reiki for bodily discomfort she also felt the positive benefits mentally and spiritually. Connie became a level one Reiki practitioner, Shoden in 2018. She completed her level four Reiki Master/teacher training in the fall of 2021. She practices Reiki daily and believes a good day starts by reciting the Reiki precepts. Today only, do not anger, do not worry, with thankfulness, work diligently, be kind to others. Reiki is a beautiful compliment to all aspects of our daily lives.
Each and every being has an innate ability to heal as a gift from the gods.
