Brett Donlevy (she/her) - Reiki
Born and raised in Saskatoon, Brett graduated from Aden Bowman in 2004 and the University of Saskatchewan in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in psychology.
During her academic time, a deep interest and relationship with yoga was formed. Brett certified as a yoga teacher in 2009 (Sivananda-200HR), 2012 (Maya Yoga-500HR) and most recently in spring 2020 (Yoga On The Inside-200HR). She currently teaches restorative yoga classes online, works with community associations and supports and teaches Chair Yoga classes at Vangool Wellness to help make yoga accessible to everybody.
A persistent curiosity in 'the unseen energy that animates us all' was emerging for Brett and in 2014 she was offered her first real reiki session. It sparked something inside that was familiar and comforting, and she followed that thread. Brett met her reiki teacher in 2015 and began to study and learn this healing technique the very next day. Her studies began with Illuminara Wellness in 2015 and 2016. She then went on to study and train with Berni Heimbecker in 2017-present. Brett has successfully completed Levels 1, 2, 3 in the Usui System of Natural Healing. She enjoys receiving reiki on a regular basis for stress and anxiety reduction. Reiki allows her to connect on a deeper level to herself and her energy all while finding greater ease and alignment with the universal energy or higher power. Giving reiki is a joy and a privilege for Brett because it's an opportunity to hold space for people so they can heal on all levels (body, mind, and spirit).
Brett lives in Caswell Hill with her partner Derek and their two kitties (brothers) Brave Heart and Pretty Boy. She enjoys the simple pleasures and finds delight in flowers and beautiful produce. Brett is the youngest in her family and has 2 sisters and 1 brother. She is also a very proud auntie to 5 littles.
