Dear Kristen, You came in our life and you changed the way we look at life completely. How great-full we are to your presence and to your beautiful words that calm our minds. The words are limited to describe our experiences .There is one thing to say Thank You We love you our dear Goddess. See you on the mat!
Thanks so much for a great class and for sharing your magnificent energy with myself and all of your students. Cheers!
I hoped for support with my insecurities, instead of figuring everything out myself forever, to take a "shortcut" with your points of view from your massive experience in teaching. It made me look at these "points" I would not have seen, and helped a lot to go through the blocks with joy, a friend, security, feeling empowered and connected with a lot of confidence, which is essential for my work and teaching. It was perfect!!! Thanks soooooo much
Kristen Eykel is an awesome Reiki teacher, I know firsthand. This month I took her first class in Reiki Master training, having started my study of Reiki on the East Coast. Her instruction, attunement and guided practice were enlightening, powerful and nurturing. She deepened my awareness of what's possible in this healing practice. I look forward to continuing my journey in Reiki Master training with a gentle, enlightening and empowering Master Teacher
Thank you again for a great course. Your course has allowed me to see the changes I needed to do to remove blockages and move forward and be positive with myself and others. What I appreciated is that the course does not judge what I want to be successful at – it leaves that to me – whether lofty goals or more worldly wants! I like that – really it is about succeeding at what I want and that really helps me to appreciate myself Thank you so very much!
Kristen!!! I just have to tell you that I think tonight was one of the most pivotal turning points of my life. I don’t even have words. I feel like all the darkness that’s been covering me and frustrating me...all the things I’ve been ’screaming’ at...they all simply went into the magma of the Earth. I went tonight to focus on something positive for the next 6 weeks. I wanted to focus on healthy living and good food choices. It was fairly logical and I am trying to ‘retrain my brain’. .........I feel like I’m so light. I wonder if there was something in the kool aid? lol I almost feel drugged. So much peace... I feel like I want to giggle. Now I want to cry...happy tears. I feel “free” for the first time in decades. I have no idea what universes and dimensions (and peace and joy on earth) I will continue to find. Thank you... my human vocabulary can’t express the depth of my peace, joy and gratitude.
Kristen has helped me open myself up in order to actually FEEL and see what's going on inside. To feel is to heal. Her presence alone allows for a safe space to be who you are and let down the facade. Nothing but grateful for her existence and wonderful knowledge. Thank you Goddess!!
Reiki has let me accept and understand the conflicts in my life. I feel more attuned to myself, my body and my surroundings. Thank you so much for allowing me to progress in my spiritual journey with this certification process.
I am very careful about who I work with and allow to be a spiritual teacher to me. Kristen created a space that was safe & gentle for me to open up so that I could embrace Reiki in my life. I look forward to the next level of Reiki & what it will bring to my life.
A truly loveable experience being able to open up to love & awareness of who you are, which creates a happy you. Then, you want to share that love & healing energy to others. Reiki- a way to protect and heal others. I can't wait to become a Master! Thank you, Divine Energy!
Kristen- what a gift Reiki is and an immense confirmation in that I am exactly where I am meant to be! I've had a great connection to Source for sometime, however, I never imagined a connection such as this- it is truly tangible! Thank you for these life changing attunements-not only from myself, but also from my daughters. I'm adventuring down a path that will vibrate love, healing and a relationship with Source and Mother Nature for generations to come! Much love
I met Kristen when I randomly took her yoga class. From that first interaction my life has changed, I left crying that day with the realization that there is so much healing to be done and that Kristen is gonna help me. Fast forward two years, I am religiously taking her classes twice a week and just completed her "Planning for Success" book and meetings, and I can honestly say I am feeling great. Through her program, classes and guidance, I now have tools to get through anything that comes my way. I have learned how to breathe and focus. I have learned how to get through stressful issues and how to prevent anxiety from taking over, allowing myself to move forward and be a better me so that I can be a better mother to my children and a better person to those around me. By reading the daily affirmations and meditating like she has taught me, I am able to now do this on my own, even though I know she will always be there to help. I am grateful to have these tools and this book to refer to for extra support in my life.
Kristen was recommended to me by a friend, to be doula for the birth of my second son, after a fairly traumatic experience with my first son's birth. Not only did Kristen help to transform my birth experience, she has transformed my life, with her magical blend of hypnosis, Reiki, inspiration and guidance. She helped me reveal to myself my own powerful healing abilities, and has opened up new and exciting possibilities for my life and work. Even though the circumstances of my day-to-day life have not changed dramatically (still have work, kids, husband, etc.), the way I go through it all is radically different-- with more confidence, grace, gratitude, hope, and love. Kristen has a beautiful, sacred circle that she has created all around her, and I am so honored to be a part of it, and to bring that amazing energy to the next steps in my own journey. Lots of love to you!
To put words to my experience working with Kristen, is like trying to find words to describe your most profound spiritual experience. Because that's what working with her has been and continues to be: one of the most profound spiritual experiences of my life. These days "healer" and "shaman" are words we hear often. But to find a true healer- one who can lead you across the most treacherous threshold with grace and strength- is as rare and precious as encountering soulmate love. That is who Kristen is, a true healer of the greatest magnitude. I've been able to share things with Kristen I was too ashamed to reveal to anyone. Her compassion, wisdom, and support demolishes shame and reveals the gem of growth and transformation available in the most harrowing times. Being in her presence is nourishing and inspirational, and with the depth and breadth of tools she brings to the table, there is no limit to what is possible. I've also had the unique privilege of serving alongside Kristen as a birth doula. Over my 7 year practice, I've found that birth reveals the truth of who we are. There is nowhere to hide in the labor room. When Kristen stepped in, the whole room shifted. The mother, who had been having a hard time, was instantly calmed by Kristen's soothing and reassuring energy. Not only did Kristen nurture the laboring woman, she supported everyone in the room- the father, the grandmother, the nursing staff. I was supposed to be there for Kristen, but when she noticed I was tired, she gave me an exquisite neck massage. That one example (and I have many like it) says everything about the kind of person Kristen is.
I met Kristen through her yoga classes and immediately knew she was an exceptional human being. So when I saw she was offering Reiki training I jumped at the opportunity to train with her. 3 Reiki trainings, 2 yoga teacher trainings (200RYT and RPYT), reiki/hypnosis sessions, and 1 year later, and I can confidently say that Kristen's trainings have transformed me. Her trainings invited me to find deeper meaning in my life, allowing me to become a better and more fulfilled human being in every possible way. I could not recommend Kristen enough. Her teachings are incredibly informative, empowering, and authentic. She has a way about her that no other teacher/mentor can match - she is a true inspiration. We are blessed to have Kristen in our world!
I have had the pleasure to work with Kristen in various ways - yoga, private session work, and Planning for Success. Kristen is grounded, sensible, sympathetic, and spiritual, embodying a non-judgmental ability to assist one in reaching down deep, to locate the strong inner power we all possess in order to attain our goals. Working with Kristen is a sheer pleasure. She's an all around lovely human being!
I spent 5 years in California and it definitely helped that Kristen landed on my path. It is one of the most powerful things that has happened to me. I was practicing yoga before but, with her, it transformed into a way of living. I was practicing mindful living, but, with her, it transformed into sparkling joy of gratitude for every day. I was anxious and scared about the future and by attending and carrying out "Planning for success", magic happened ! My goal was accomplished in many ways. I cannot recommend a better training to see your intentions through. Her meditation is pure love, divine journey and practical at the same time. Be prepared to go where you never expected, even in your dreams. You will connect with your deepest inner power as well as the entire universe. Kristen, I am so glad to continue to be part of your community as It always be beneficial. I look forward to be able to stay connected as you share your truly bountifulness to the entire world . I will definitely stay tuned through your website ! France is only 10.000km away, but who cares? You will always be in my thoughts and my heart. My life is more exponential since you became part of my journey. Now I can see the beauty in everyone and everything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I was planning on coming to class last Monday, but woke up feeling extra tired and was getting Braxton-Hicks so I didn't make it. Later that evening, contractions were getting closer together and I was admitted at 11pm. 12 hours later and with 3 pushes, Baby J.R. was anxious & entered this world 3 1/2 weeks earlier than expected via VBAC! He was 7.4 lbs @ 21". I did it and it was the best decision I've made for myself, baby, and delivery experience. I want to thank you (and all the moms) for giving me the strength and courage to stay committed to my decision despite the little support I received outside of your class. It was an experience I'll never forget. We're recovering and transitioning well. Sat Nam
My water broke last Saturday night at 2:30 but didn't get contractions until Sunday. Stayed at home but labor kept stalling. Went to Kaiser midnight on Monday - they left me alone for a bit but starting pushing C-Section on Tuesday morning. Had to fight for VBAC for another 24 hours. Pushed him out 7:36 am Wednesday morning - 79 hours after my water broke. 8lbs 6 oz 22 inches, Mason is here. Thank you for all of your support, I count you as one of the people that gave me the strength to fight for the VBAC.
I'm thrilled and privileged that I got to experience labor. It was strangely beautiful and I was so in the zone throughout the whole experience. The practice that I shared with you in your class was so amazingly helpful in keeping me centered and calm, the postures really helped me get through those contractions, And let me tell you, I was the squatting queen! Thank you Kristen, for being such an amazing support on this journey. You truly are a special teacher and spirit & are the kind of yoga teacher that literally transforms the air and energy in the room. You create a truly honest, sacred, and inspired experience, what yoga is supposed to be. You have such extensive knowledge and infectious passion for your work and for life, what a lovely gift to women you are!
Kristen was a part of all three of my pregnancies. When I first walked in to Kristen's studio, I knew this was the place for me and my first son to grow together and we did! Kristen's voice, guidance, the poses and meditations she led us through, her gentleness and knowledge of our journey always brought me comfort. Her yoga classes really do strengthen and stretch your body, mind and soul. No matter what was happening in my world I could be alone with my baby and myself (with these other wonderful women) and be present. Because my second delivery was a C section, I assumed that my 3rd would be as well. I hoped to have a V-BAC, but was very nervous for a variety of emotional and medical reasons. Almost like a miracle, I found out that Kristen had just become a doula and so lucky for me, she would be our doula! Quite frankly, I would have loved to have Kristen at all of my deliveries, because as wonderful as a husband is, there is something so special about having a loving centered woman by your side. It was a dream come true and so was my labor. The day before I delivered, Kristen came to my house and we had the most beautiful little yoga session with my children and husband. It was a little welcoming session for the new baby. The next morning we all met at the hospital. Kristen led us in a meditation as I lay in my husband's arms and the baby responded with contractions. Another miracle. Kristen was there for every wonderful contraction and it really was wonderful. My baby and I moved together and he descended as I rolled my hips with him inside. He was born in 3 pushes. Kristen is like a sister, mother and Angel all rolled up in one beautiful package. She is strong and gentle. She offers guidance, mantras, songs and meditations that are wise and simple. She is fully and whole heartedly and lovingly present in everything she does. She is a gift and I'm so happy that you might have the opportunity to have her on your journey as well!

I have taken several of Kristen's prenatal yoga classes and they are nothing less than a treat for both body and mind. The most memorable class I took, however, was at the end of my second pregnancy. I was very close to my due date and told her I was ready to deliver. Kristen guided me though a wonderful class that left me with the strength and energy I needed to have my baby. The next night I went into labor. I used the poses she taught me while I labored naturally at home and in the hospital. I had a wonderful birth experience (something I never thought was possible after my frst birth experience.) I will always be grateful I went to her class the day before I had my little boy.
Less expensive than a chiropractic session and more addictive than a Vicoden (in a good way), the healing vibes of Kristen Eykel's Yoga Emergency class at Inner Power Yoga releases hunched shoulders, lessens back strain, and soothes the aches and pains of pregnancy. And if you are just a neurotic mess, the soothing incantations of this model- beautiful instructor with 20 years experience in Shamanism, Reiki and Kundalini could calm even the suicidal. Her candelit class is taught with subtle strains of Indian music playing in the background, accompanying her easy-to-follow instruction; Eykel guides you through relaxing postures that even the tightest of truck drivers can follow. She emphasizes that this is not a "sweat class" (although you will probably sweat) but a class to make you feel better. "It's purpose is to bring into your day an energy that you would like to accentuate, or to release something that no longer serves you emotionally or physically," Eykel explains. Occasionally, a particular movement can release so much emotion that it's not uncommon to witness a student burst into tears during the practice.
I just want to thank you for your understanding and constant support. I know in my heart that taking the pregnancy yoga, immersing myself in female empowerment, and being held in an environment that allowed me to SAFELY work on my teaching space (being able to speak and be heard) were all the stepping stones to this moment.. The fear of persecution has followed me around in many lifetimes and I was finally strong enough to face it and release it. I couldn't have done it without your guidance. Even though we were working on pregnancy yoga, it shifted my whole being and you modeled to me that I can be a woman who is empowered and will be listened to when I speak my truth. When I would get scared, I would think back to you and it would give me reassurance that I could face this. I can't thank you enough and I am so grateful that I have a teacher who is such a strong woman. With eternal gratitude.
The teaching style has deepened my understanding of pregnancy yoga. I had done the poses many times while pregnant and totally got them physically ,but during this training, I got way more of an energetic understanding. For me it has been my own internal work. I'm so happy to have cleared out some of my baggage so I can be of service to others. This course was very, very valuable to me. I'm so happy that I was completely unreasonable and said yes to signing up. I feel like I've gotten so aligned with my purpose. My relationships are transformed and I'm contributing to others. So happy!
I came in to this program knowing next to nothing about pregnancy/labor and even less about prenatal yoga but after the first day Kristen’s knowledge and passion absolutely blossomed within myself. The reading materials, lectures, guest speakers and practice teaching/observing has instilled a lot of information, comprehension, confidence, and (in my opinion, most importantly-) passion for this service to provide for our tribe.
I met Kristen through her yoga classes and immediately knew she was an exceptional human being. So when I saw she was offering Reiki training I jumped at the opportunity to train with her. 3 Reiki trainings, 2 yoga teacher trainings (200RYT and RPYT), reiki/hypnosis sessions, and 1 year later, and I can confidently say that Kristen's trainings have transformed me - her trainings invited me to find deeper meaning in my life, allowing me to become a better and more fulfilled human being in every possible way.

We are blessed to have Kristen in our world!
The BEST PRENATAL YOGA class ever. Kristen is AMAZING. This class is not only a prenatal yoga class, but also a preparation for birth class. I started going to class at 13 weeks pregnant just to 'get more flexible' but got so much more out of the class. I went at least once a week up until 39 weeks pregnant. I had my baby two weeks ago and my labor and delivery was only 3 hours and I am a first time mom. I truly believe that going to this class, as well as doing my 'homework' and yoga poses at home influenced my pregnancy and recovery in the most positive way. I learned my body, was attuned at the mental practice that goes into pregnancy and delivery, and was able to adjust and practice all my yoga poses throughout pregnancy (and during labor) to make me feel more comfortable. Please do yourself a huge favor and attend this class consistently. Give it a chance, every class is somewhat different as Kristen adjusts the class based on the needs of the students. Each class session is slightly different, therefore, you are always learning something new. My mom and sisters were amazed at my 3 hours, no epidural, hospital delivery and as well as my recovery (I'm almost at my pre pregnancy weight) and they also think it's from all of my 'marathon training' aka my yoga classes, additional Pilates, and walking that helped my body truly prepare for my little cute yoga baby who just came right out. He did yoga with my for 6 months so I truly think my little one was prepared to come out as well. Please go to this class!!! (P.S. I had never done yoga prior to this class, so it is for all levels. I still can't touch my toes completely, but I am much better!). Thank you KRISTEN!
Shortly after I met Kristen, I learned her philosophy as a teacher was to Prod, Poke, Inspire and Elevate her students! And I can say she has accomplished that with me. My introduction to Kristen was through a Kundalini Yoga course. Her knowledge of yoga, chakras, breath energy, etc. was impressive. But what really got to me was her love, dedication, and belief in her students. She inspired, in me, a craving to study more, to realize my true nature! And yes, through her array of skills as a Shaman, Reiki Master, spiritual and physical Yoga teacher, hypnotherapist and more, she has prodded and poked me to move on from my self-imposed limitations to see that I really can achieve my goals. I have had other teachers but never have I been so kindly and effectively pushed along on the Path. Changes that I have seen by following her guidance have helped me to accept my humanity, to be less upset over my mistakes or those of others, not to fear new challenges, willingness to assert my truths with others, confidence that my directions are unfolding properly (even if I cannot see the final outcome) and more joy in all life experiences. With Kristen, I feel I have not only found a great teacher but also a very supportive confidant. She is that close with all her students! Awesome teacher, incredible guide and mentor, wonderful friend! Namaste Kristen!
Planning for Success – A Six Week Planner Harnessing the Science of Yoga to Help You Recreate Your Life, Set Your Goals & Manifest Your Intentions is a self-help journey unlike any other. Kristen Eykel combines the 5,000-year-old science of Yoga, with a daily mindfulness & journaling practice, to guide you to understand where your stumbling blocks are, and more importantly, how to remove them. Humans are creatures of habit. These habits serve to keep you safe and help you to survive. However, these same habits can also undermine the goals you wish to achieve by preventing you from moving out of your comfort zone and creating the life you desire.
Utilizing the Yogic discipline of Sadhana, a 40 Day Meditation, this 6-week program draws upon Mudra, Mantra & Meditation, combined with Mindfulness and Hypnotherapy techniques to generate new patterns in your brain and thinking, which ultimately lead you to understand yourself and your deepest motivations with greater clarity. You begin by setting a goal that is important for you to achieve. Throughout the next 6 weeks, you discover yourself within this practice as you move towards that goal. Weekly self-review allows you to ultimately realize what may be even more important to you than your starting point revealed.
Simple, yet powerful, Kristen’s techniques will challenge you to think and feel deeper, with more clarity and perspective. Each time you go through this process, you will arrive at a new destination, with greater insight and a richer understanding than you ever had before.
