About this class

This is balanced and steady 60-minute Vinyasa flow class integrates breath work with steady, (sometimes) strong, and mindful movement to help you reconnect to your body and the rhythms of nature (the moon cycles!). 

Throughout the practice, I sprinkle insight about the Moon Phase we are in, for example the Waning Moon period can support us in releasing stuck or held energy, thoughts, and experiences in order to make more space in mind/body and, ultimately, life, while the Waxing Moon can be an optimal time for "planting seeds" of intention and creating.

Each part of the Moon Cycle has its own special meaning, for example the Waning Gibbous phase, which is a few days after the Full Moon, is a period when we can integrate what we have learned and share what we have gained. The Sign the Moon is in also gives us insight into the emotional tenor of that time, for example when the Moon is In Scorpio it may feel natural to be more introspective and quiet, and to focus on healing practices (like yoga).

You will focus on

  • Meditative movement (linked to your breath) to clear mental clutter.
  • Creating a true balance of strength & softness or effort and ease.
  • Strengthening your body and using your core center to flow (as appropriate for your body)
  • Breath-work to create a peaceful and expansive feeling in your mind/body

How to come prepared

  • You + your yoga mat :)
  • If you like to use blocks or a strap, please have them handy.
  • A yoga blanket is nice to sit on during meditation or use under your head during Savasana, but it's not necessary.
