Full Moon Flow

 In April, we experience a revelatory full moon in Scorpio that illuminates the parts of our psyche that harbor immense amounts of creativity, renewal, and endings. While April’s full moon shines a spotlight on the depth of our creativity, it also unveils our shadow side. It is often through working with our shadow that we can discover the full strength and integrity of our character. This moon ignites dramatic endings and spectacular beginnings. Join us for our Full Moon Flow on Sunday, April 29th. In this workshop, we will discuss the nature of this moon, how it can catapult us into transformation, and learn techniques on how to build/maintain stable emotional ground when presented with our shadow. To further integrate the strength of overcoming all odds, we will move through a dynamic vinyasa flow with the energy of Goddess Kali. The workshop will end with a guided meditation.

Clear direction and clear seeing are themes of this month’s full moon. Residing in Sagittarius and opposing the sun in Gemini, this luna offers us a natural, easy, and collaborative energy to dive deep into our personal truths and freedoms.

As Sagittarius is ruled by the benevolent planet of luck, this energy ignites our abilities to positively flourish within ourselves. Join us for our Full Moon Flow in May, where we will discover ways in which we can harness this lunar energy to further support our individual journeys. We will then move through an energizing vinyasa flow, where you will be provided the opportunity to refine your skills of clarity, direction, and sense perception.

June Full Moon Flow

With the Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Capricorn, we witness the tension that arises with these two opposing signs. Slow and steady are the major themes associated with this Full Moon in Capricorn. This lunar energy encompasses practical detachment and the act of taking responsibility of our habits, tendencies, and emotions. As the goat steadily ascends the mountain, this luna lays bare our need for boundaries and taking the right steps towards skillful achievement. During this month’s Full Moon Flow, we will harness the energy of Capricorn to guide you in achieving your longterm goals. The workshop will begin with a discussion on the themes of this moon and how it can assist you to tackle any obstacles that may be standing in the way of your abundance. As a complement to this Capricorn energy, we will move through an intentional vinyasa flow with the energy of Goddess Durga. Class will end with a grounded restorative meditation.
