Like the Moon, the mind is always changing. Moon Hatha uses the physical body to access the breath and the breath to access the mind. Establishing a calm and tranquil mind and increasing our capacity for continuity off the mat.
The moon is actually a light-less piece of rock. What gives her light is her alignment with the sun. When the moon is in perfect alignment with the sun we call it a full moon. The moon is able to give us the full reflection. This is what we cultivate in our Moon classes. Better alignment with our true nature (Purusha) so that we can constantly reflect calm and stability on to the world and those around us.
Expect: Forward folding, spinal twisting, lengthened exhalations, savasana and seated meditation.
A beautiful healing practice consisting of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body - hips, pelvis, inner thighs and spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissue which responds best to slow and steady movement utilizing gravity's pull to allow the facial body to release, lubricating joints and strengthening tendons and ligaments.
Often with the help of yoga props (blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps), Yin also helps to stimulate and remove blockages in the meridians (energy pathways).
If you need to relax as well as cultivate balance and peace in your life then Yin is your therapy.
Bookings are essential as this class is extremely popular.
