Rest in Power Yoga and Reiki LLC was born of a growing collective desire to leverage yoga as a tool for Black liberation, goddess-consciousness, and general decolonization, and therefore the tool for everyone’s liberation from an anti-Black + still-colonial world.

The ethos of Rest in Power calls for the reclamation of healing in the U.S. consciousness as a series of holistic, ancient systems cultivated and nurtured for the express purpose of spiritual liberation.
The name Rest in Power plays with the illusion of dualities, using the tools of physical, psychological, and emotional stillness to access and manifest the innate power within each of us.
The name also calls forth the ancestors of the marginalized, those who died without the privilege of living with consistent inner peace and/or extrinsic power. May our healing honor their power(s).
Tapping into a variety of sacred healing modalities, Rest in Power Yoga and Reiki touches that part of each of us that holds no fear, that sees with clarity, that knows itself – and knows that it knows – and that loves the divine in each of us without restriction.
Rest in Power Yoga and Reiki supports you in finding the rest that you need to wake up to your own divinity, shed your limiting falsehoods and live as your most powerful self.
Chris Johnson (Pronouns: they/them) is the founder and owner of Rest In Power Yoga and Reiki, LLC.
They move through this lifetime as a witchy blackqueer human with an alchemical lense and a dedication to the sacred connection between Self + Source. Their soul’s divine purpose is to nourish the trees that bear the fruits of freedom. They build sacred + radical communities that harness ancestral power, accelerate collective healing, and ignite fearless creative expression. They primarily connect to source and self-remembrance through nature, art, yoga, meditation, sound healing + Reiki.
Chris started Rest In Power Yoga and Reiki LLC to help you cultivate peace, activate power, and experience emancipation.

"Chris- a staple person in LA healing. A fresh, young voice with an old soul. I was coaxed to calmness from Chris’ voice and bowls. Like an instant chill pill as soon as I’m around them!"
