Lunar Rhythm

Friday, Dec 7th


We gather on this new moon to open the portals of our emotional intelligence and take time for deeper introspection. The energy of Winter allows us to deepen in the realms of death. Winter is a time of change and slowing down, moving within. Darkness allows us to explore our subconscious, revealing the things that are not working nor serving us. We dance to reclaim our creative power, to clear ancestral trauma and to deepen in embodied wisdom. Dance is one of the most ancient forms of ritual magic, so come as you are, all you need is a water bottle, comfortable clothing and a willing heart.

Bring a water bottle and wear comfortable clothing. No mat needed.

Throughout the series focus will be on the foundations of the yoga practice exploring the basic yoga postures, essential breath-work practices and the importance of yin and yang balance in the practice. There will be an in-depth review of the postures traditionally practiced in Sun Salutations as those are the blueprint poses for all other poses. Working from the ground up to create a solid foundation that is safe and evolutionary, there will be space for inquiry and unique exploration. Each week will build on the next, so it is recommended to register for the entire series. However, drop ins are welcome.
