Tres Ositos Yoga and Reiki

I began Tres Ositos Yoga and Reiki to help increase equity in wellness and healing spaces.

These spaces have a history of decentering or erasing the experiences and knowledge of practitioners and students who do not fit a particular ideal and inhibit the diversity of individuals seeking to learn and resource services and offerings. ​

Tres Ositos Yoga and Reiki is committed to being a dynamic and collaborative space to create loving communities everywhere and anywhere we find ourselves.


Thank you for visiting!

Tres Ositos Yoga and Reiki

My Journey 

I could not afford to practice yoga or receive other healing modalities for most of my life. Once I could afford to do so, I didn't always see myself represented in well-intentioned spaces. 

​​​

In 2020, life began to shift for me and so many others in the world due to the pandemic. I recognized it was time to reevaluate and renew my purpose, so I completed the 300-hour Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training and began my Reiki journey. In 2022, I became a Karuna Reiki Master and Animal Reiki Master. I have completed training in Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra. I also work in higher education as an administrator and English professor.


For those who are interested, I hope this space and offerings connect with you and support your journey. So, let's get started and work together to serve one another, follow our individual and collective guidance, and engage in this beautiful work as a community! 

I am forever thankful to my beautiful human and Osito family. I am grateful for all my beloved teachers (past, present, and future).

Holy Fire® Reiki III Classes

Holy Fire® Reiki is a type of Reiki energy and system of Reiki healing. Holy Fire® is powerful and gentle and provides purification, healing, empowerment, and guidance. William Rand first experienced Holy Fire® Reiki energy in 2014 and followed the guidance received to share this energy with his Reiki Master class a few days later. William recently experienced a new expression of Reiki energy in 2022, known as World Peace Reiki, in response to worldwide conflicts, such as in Ukraine. Students who register for training with me will receive the Placement for Holy Fire® III Reiki and Ignition for World Peace Reiki. 


Animal Reiki energy is its own energy. The placement will unify the Animal Reiki energy with your existing Reiki energy and symbols. It is a beautiful way to connect with animals and nature and provides a deeper relationship and connection to the Earth.

Classes will utilize a sliding scale to ensure access for those interested.
