Moon Time Yoga (TM)
One of our delightful practioners, Chrissy, has developed a special yoga practice for women in all stages and phases of reproduction from the Maiden and the Mother to the Wild Woman and the Crone.
It is an invitation to practice yoga in a soft feminine way that honors your body as a temple for the cycle of life, death and rebirth. This practice is designed as a journey inside connecting to the wisdom and love of the feminine heart and womb. Instruction for several major acupressure points to help relieve imbalances associated with menstruation is also included along with essential oil therapy.
Moontime Yoga tm includes a potent discussion, bringing to Light all the taboo topics around menstruation and menopause and everything in between connecting us to our local and global sisterhood. The Moontime Yoga practice is thoughtfully designed as a practical way to use yoga as a tool to nourish and rejuvenate you at different times in your cycle. You can do this practice when you are bleeding, feeling the need for more quiet and reflection, on or around a new moon, during menopause,and to address imbalances related to menstruation including amenorrhea and heavy bleeding.
The practice begins with Chandra Namaskar (Salutations to the Moon) a modern Hatha yoga compliment to traditional Surya Namaskar (Salutations to the Sun), and continues with gentle movement and restorative postures with bolsters and props. Instruction for several major acupressure points to help relieve imbalances associated with menstruation is also included along with essential oil therapy.
