Moon Salutations and Restorative Yoga with Brian Stump
Sunday December 3rd 5:30 - 7:30pm
Find peace in the light of the moon and rest with Brian Stump, RYT200. During this 2-hour workshop, we will explore moon salutations (Chandra Namaskar) followed by restorative yoga. The practice of moon salutations are a reflection of sun salutations (Surya Namaskar); just as the moon has no light of it's own but reflects the light of the sun. Chandra Namaskar provides space to connect with your lunar energy which is cooling, relaxing, creative, and inwardly focused. Our society typically encourages our solar energy, making it easy to pursue worldly achievements rather than internal awareness. Chandra Namaskar allows you to find balance in our crazy, impulse driven society. As we move through the gentle flow of the moon salutations, we will be preparing our body for rest; deliberate rest with restorative yoga. Let go of physical tension, emotional stress, and mental control while allowing your body to be cradled by the earth. Using blocks, blankets, straps, and other props to find comfort in poses, you’ll allow your body, mind, and spirit to relax. This class will take place on the last full moon before the winter solstice and is perfectly placed to help you tackle the busy holiday season with mindfulness and ease. No prior yoga experience is necessary. All levels are welcome. $25. Please bring your yoga mat if you can!
