During the May full moon, we will be embracing the power of softness and how much security we can gain from softening ourselves and understanding that softness does not equal weakness. We will soften with our minds, bodies and spirits and uncover the sweetness of being gentle with all parts of ourselves. We will focus on harnessing our inner-flame and work with the element of fire within the Third Chakra/Solar Plexus/Manipura, which aligns with the Sagittarius fire energy this moon brings. We will support our softening and releasing with the Fourth Chakra/Heart/Anahata.
Olivia will use her E & F 432HZ Quartz singing bowls that resonate with both these energy centers. She will also guide you through a creative-writing sequence that will allow you to go within and find not only peace, but gentle expansion. Your yoga flow with Aiko will open with softness and relaxation, moving into heart opening poses that will encourage emotional release.
Key Resonances: Softening / Blossoming Energy / Peace / Non-Violence / Passionate Expansion / Fire / Air
Key Chakras: Solar Plexus Manipura & Heart Anahata

FROM THE FOUNDERS
From Olivia ☆Aquarius ☾Aries ↑Scorpio
“Healing ourselves is our first responsibility and then healing the world is our second; the crystal clear knowing that we are all connected and that ‘doing the work together’ is the only way to bring forth more light, more love, more peace to all corners of our physical, mental and spiritual sides, as well as all corners of the world and universe. I believe this is everyone’s divine right and Maison Aiko&Olivia is our space dedicated to the cultivation and fruition of this.”
From Aiko☆Taurus ☾Scorpio ↑Gemini
“Life is an ongoing journey of struggle and triumph. How we view and let these experiences imprint us shape who we are and the outcomes, whether desired or not. Maison A&O is about tapping into oneself – soul, identity, that voice inside, intuition, whatever your reference may be – giving that inner guiding force, which we all possess, voice; a confident and undeniable voice. Maison Aiko&Olivia for the betterment of our community’s well-being by sewing the physical and metaphysical together to heal and grow.”
Aiko has been a yoga practitioner for over 18 years, following a lifetime of classical ballet – a discipline that developed her a near sixth sense for alignment, posture and best strengthening practices.
This innate awareness translates into her yoga teaching and hands-on approach. She has a passion for human movement and is bright in her energy and direction, often incorporating her dance background throughout her classes.
Aiko formally trained at Atmananda and completed a yoga mentorship at YogaVida, as well as various workshops in New York City and Australia. Her training is in ashtanga yoga with vinyasa flow, and this is reflected in the structure of her classes.
Olivia is a compassionate conduit; a holistic health practitioner; carrying over 15 years in the healing arts in addition to her innate gifts from birth. She focuses on energy healing but is grounded in the real-world. She is a certified Reiki Master/Teacher, Meditation Leader, Quartz Crystal Sound Healer, Therapeutic Grade Crystal Healer and has training in additional alternative/ancient healing modalities.
The pillars of her work are grounded in compassion, unconditional-love, gratitude and humility – Olivia curates’ multiple vibrational therapies to clear-out, harmonize and purify the Chakra system (inner and outer electromagnetic fields).
Her practice is centered around offering her students the tools and guidance to becoming their own healer through the power of integration and life practices – Everything is already inside of us. Olivia focuses on guiding and coaching those to let go of the denser energies and experiences; bringing forth the light within and creating the loving, joyful life that we all are worthy of.
