The Beo Training Center was created to promote a solid curriculum to make students successful.

Beo Training Center was born from a desire to raise the bar in healthcare within our community. We started in 2009, fully licensed by the state of Colorado, with clinical site backing and support. Beo is a locally owned and operated company, which allows us to keep our class sizes small and cater to each individual student.

Reiki Classes

There is a non-physical ubiquitous energy that gives life to every living organism. For many thousands of years we have known of this energy and have sought to develop ways to harness its power to heal and influence our lives.

We carry this energy in and around our bodies from the moment we are conceived. Ancient Eastern cultures have harnessed and applied this energy for healing.

Reiki is the gift of vitality and self-preservation encoded into the genetic makeup of all of us. It is the higher self’s connection to the universal energy that breathes life into all living things. We are all born with the omniscient wisdom to heal and preserve life. Humanity in its relentless ambition for progress has given up its most precious and natural gift.

Instead of giving up responsibility for one’s life and health, it is vitally important to regain a healthy balance between ancient and modern technology. Reiki is the catalyst.

Nature’s life giving energy is a great and wise teacher. By pursuing its wisdom through Reiki you will grow to new heights of understanding and life will flow at a more enjoyable and exciting pace.

Reiki is holistic; it works on the body, mind, and spirit by stimulating a person’s own natural healing abilities. The blocked emotional and physical elements that lead to illness and disease are cleared.

Reiki also helps people cross over during time of death; giving them comfort and reassurance when passing.

Reiki is channeled through the hands. When you place your hands over your own body, or the body of another person for the purpose of healing, you connect with the universal life force. The wisdom of Reiki then goes to work to bring about healing, balance and whatever is needed on a holistic level.

The skills and techniques associated with Reiki are simple and easy to learn.
Whether you are a medical professional adding this tool to your toolbox or a person who just wants a healthier, happier life, Reiki is a valuable skill to acquire.

Beo Personal Training Center realizes the health benefits of Reiki and is now offering classes in Reiki I and Reiki II.

Reiki I 8-hour class includes Provider Manual $200.00

Reiki II 8-hour class includes Provider Manual $250.00

Reiki I and II for Healthcare Providers – 2 Day course includes Provider Manual with
Healthcare-Specific Professional Documentation, and tote bag $375.00 package special

2017 Class Graduates



“She is so personable and had examples for basically everything.  Its so much easier to learn from someone who has so much experience and genuinely cares about you. Suzanne did wonderful.

It was a very pleasant experience and I appreciate everything that you all have done.

Shay Ratchford  04/13/2017 


“She was very nice, great teacher; if I didn’t understand something, she took the time and explained everything where I fully understood the subject.  

Very patient, smart, caring, and very welcoming.  Each class we started she was always excited and happy to see you, and ready to teach.  She is very professional in every way possible.  

I loved how she compared her past experiences to help the class understand about certain illnesses and how far nursing assistants have come over the years.  I highly recommend everyone to this class.

You know you have a great teacher when you pass each exam and final exam.  All because of her awesome teaching methods.  A wonderful woman and an amazing Nurse!”

“Thank you so much for this class and I’m very grateful for Mrs. Suzanne, to meet a wonderful Nurse and be a part of a great community – Beo!”
