A Full Moon Vinyasa flow is a time to celebrate the fullness of life, and to release what no longer serves, letting go of lower energies, negativity and old habits. This Full Moon Yoga Flow will invite purification and expansion of our minds and bodies; and is a powerful time for inner work, looking within and breathing through blocks. The class will begin with a short meditation, followed by a grounding and soulful moon flow (variations offered for all levels ) and close with a restorative posture and a few minutes of reflection in the form of meditation or journaling.
A New Moon Vinyasa Flow is a time to align with what you want to focus on and create during the next cycle. It’s a perfect time to set new intentions, goals and wishes and prepare for new beginnings. The New Moon yoga class will begin with a brief meditation to set intentions and plant metaphoric seeds, followed by a mindful movement of yoga asanas. This class will close with a guided meditation to integrate and embody intentions set.
