New Moon Kundalini Workshop

~New Moon Kundalini Workshop~

During the first New Moon of this new year we will come together to harness the potent energy surrounding this lunar cycle. The New Moon is day one of the moon cycle. During the New Moon, our glands are at a lower ebb, as is our energy. This is a good day to do an active Kundalini Yoga set. The New Moon is a day to charge your plans with power! This day is all about a running start into turning our intentions into reality.

What is Kundalini Yoga?

Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan is considered to be the Yoga of Awareness. The purpose of Kundalini Yoga is to provide a modality by which people can achieve their maximum creative potential, free themselves from Karma (the lasting effects of past actions) and realize their purpose. Kundalini Yoga is a blend of Bhakti Yoga (the yogic practice of devotion and chanting), Raja Yoga (the practice of meditation/mental and physical control) and Shakti Yoga, (the expression of power and energy).

In Kundalini Yoga a ‘Kriya’ is a series of postures, breath, and sound that work toward a specific outcome. Kriyas are performed in every class and differ from practice to practice. Practicing a kriya initiates a sequence of physical and mental changes that affect the body, mind, and spirit simultaneously. There are kriyas that support the liver, balance the glandular system, make you radiant, stimulate the pituitary, increase the flexibility of the spine, and many more. Each kriya has a different effect, but all work on all levels of your being.

The Practice
AcroYoga is a beautiful practice where two or more humans engage in PLAY. AcroYoga harmoniously combines the fitness + play of acrobatics, with the healing + movement of therapeutics, and the balance + connection of yoga. More than just a pretty picture, AcroYoga is a community of people who all come together to smile, laugh, and support each other. AcroYoga is simply the medium by which we open our hearts to others and foster a community of connection through play.

Join us for an AcroYoga workshop that will offer you all of these tools & more.

The Details
Lunar AcroYoga Fundamentals
Date: December 1, 2019
Time: 1:30-4:30p
Investment: $45 

In this workshop, we explore the soothing Lunar practice, where we connect with others by giving & receiving therapeutic bodywork. The magic of Thai Massage & Flying Therapeutics lies in the ability to create space in the body using loving-kindness, both in the quality of touch and presence. You will walk out of this workshop floating!

Thai Massage is practiced on the floor, fully-clothed without the use of oils or lotions. You will be guided through a series of postures using your whole body, with the intention to stretch, sink, shake, traction, and ultimately to create space in the body of your receiver using gravity and the breath–both mindfully and efficiently.

Then we’ll flip things upside down as receivers are suspended in the air on the giver’s feet and hands! During a Flying Therapeutic treatment, gravity is our best friend. We traction, twist, shake & fly the receiver into a blissful state of relaxation.

Our focus for this workshop is for you to become a better listener– not just with your ears, but with your hands, feet, breath, and eyes. You’ll bring home a few tools so you can help your friends relieve tension and head into the busy holiday season with ease and grace.

AcroYoga is accessible to anyone & everyone, all you need is the willingness to try something new! We build skills progressively and safely, all while creating community as we support and laugh together.
