A SPACE WHERE ALL CAN FEEL SAFE TO CULTIVATE THEIR DEEPEST TRUTH
Maitri, in Sanskrit, means loving kindness, friendliness, or loving awareness. The intent of the Maitri Center is to offer a space where all walks of life can feel safe to cultivate their deepest truth and find spiritual fulfillment. We offer Bodywork, Yoga, Meditation, Aikido, and open spiritual fellowship as avenues to explore our full potential. Through these practices, we can experience our true nature as pure loving awareness.
REGGIE D. GILLMAN-TOWNLEY
Yoga Teacher, 200ERYT, 500RYT, Aikido teacher, Shiatsu practitioner.
Vinyasa Krama Yoga
All classes are taught in the Vinyasa Krama tradition of Krishnamacharya, T.K.V. Desikachar, and Mark Whitwell. Reggie’s teachings offer the practice of yoga as an opportunity to feel your integrity and completeness in the present moment. By using approachable, simple practices appropriate to the individual practitioner, yoga offers a technology of body-breath-relationship as a means to experience yourself as a whole, complete being. There is no search for becoming better some day. We are able to feel our best now. Reggie's main focus as a teacher is in offering private sessions, so students can create a complete yet approachable home practice that fits seamlessly into daily life. He also offers a limited amount of weekly group classes, workshops, and retreats.
Aikido: Reggie is a student of Rev. Koichi Barrish, of Kannagara Aikido at Tsubaki Grand Shrine of America. Aikido is a martial art that strives to cultivate world peace, and explore our harmonious relationship to Great Nature.
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of Acupressure Bodywork. It is helpful in treating a variety of ailments, from musculo-skeletal to digestion. Reggie completed an apprenticeship in Shiatsu, under Bobbi Priest, in 2005. His style is intuitive, and works to provide calm and openness to one's own innate healing capacity
SARAH E. GILLMAN-TOWNLEY
Sarah is a dedicated massage therapist for the last ten years. After graduating from Apollo college she has been excited to deepen her education in different modalities like Thai massage, Craniosacral, Prenatal, Guided Meditation, and Myofacial Release. Her approach of mixed modalities provides an individualized session for each client that includes this combination of modalities as well as aromatherapy and live cello music by Sarah to close each session.
In December 2016 she completed her 200 hour training in Anusara-Tantra yoga at Boise School of Yoga.
Sarah is a painter, backpacker and cellist. Starting Maitri Center for Healing Arts with her husband Reggie Gillman-Townley is a dream come true. Sharing her passions and being part of a community of growth and love.
Sarah is in recovery from alcoholism and has conquered an eating disorder. Trudging through major life changes and events, yoga has been in her life for the past 13 years. "No matter how close or far I am from my practice, the yoga is at work." -Sarah
MAITRI CENTER FOR HEALING ARTS
When Reggie and Sarah first met they bonded over their individual dream of a center for bodywork, yoga and Aikido. A collaborative space to share their hearts, that includes an openness for the community to bring in workshops, classes and all forms of art.
After getting married in 2015 Reggie and Sarah moved to Hawaii with plans of adventure and starting Maitri Center in the future. They moved back to Boise to be with family when Sarah’s father got diagnosed with cancer. After being full time caregivers for Sarah’s grandmother with dementia and knocking out a dream of building a tiny house on her parents property, the universe provided the opportunity to start Maitri Center for Healing Arts on October 1, 2016.
They are overjoyed to create and share a space of Maitri, loving-kindness.
