Description – When it comes to moon phases, the full moon tends to get most of the attention, whereas the NEW MOON gets overlooked. Yet, the new moon holds powerful energy of renewal, new beginnings, and planting seeds for the future. It is an ancient practice for women to gather during this time. This circle is held as a safe space for women to celebrate feminine energy, to share whatever needs to be shared, and to nourish body and mind through a feminine Yoga practice, music, and connection with ourself and other women in the circle.
This is what you can expect at every circle: Yoga practice: Circular, flowy movements that nourish the body, release and recharge energy; mudras (hand postures and movements) to feel and move energy. Community circle: This is a Yogic practice where we get together and share whatever wants/needs to be shared that day. The act of sharing and listening creates a feeling of connectedness with yourself and your community. Sharing is always optional. Yoga Nidra: Literally “Nidra” means sleep. This practice is a deep relaxation practice and will take up a significant portion of the circle. Music: Lara will play and sing live music to create a special atmosphere. She creates sound-scapes with her synthesizer and sings beautiful mantras that you can join singing or enjoy by just listening.
Theme of February’s Circle: INNER SEASONS
We all experience the ebb and flow of the natural seasons: the gradual budding of life in spring, the abundance of summer, filled with activity and energy, the twilight of fall when it’s time to harvest, and the quiet of winter with a desire to be cozy in our nest at home. Not only do the natural seasons influence how we feel depending on the time of year, but they also correspond with other cycles- menstrual cycles, the cycles of the day, the moon, the breath, and the cycles of our lives. In this event, you will be introduced to the concept of the inner seasons, get an idea of how you can apply this knowledge to your day to live a more balanced life, and practice a nourishing Yoga class that respects the inner season you are currently in. What to Bring: journal and pen, yoga mat, blanket or whatever you need to be cozy and comfortable.
