November 24th – Womens Full Moon Workshop
1:00pm – 3:00pm
As females we are connected to the Moon and the Earth. Just like the moon changes and goes through different cycles, so does a woman’s physical, emotional and hormonal well-being.
With each full moon comes a unique energy. The moon is closely related to water, so it’s not surprising that it can exert gravitational forces strong enough to create tides in the oceans, and so too do the tides and flows of the body when responding to the rhythmic cycles of the ‘moon within’.
The full moon is a time for reflection, cleansing, releasing and forgiveness. As we start to wind down towards the end of the year, join Natasha in this special full moon class, which will provide you with the perfect opportunity to reflect and set an intention to release anything that no longer serves you.
The class will help bring awareness to what’s happening in the mind and body, by incorporating a sequence focusing on balancing the sacral chakra which is closely related to the moon. Its element is water and as such, its energy is characterised by flow and flexibility and is associated with our emotions, creativity, femininity and reproduction.
We will share a meditation, flow through a moon salutation, opening and releasing, then slowing it down with a deeply restorative Yin practice focusing on areas which may have energetic blockages. Ending with Pranayama and a Yoga Nidra to heal and restore, releasing inner tension and unpicking deep unconscious and suppressed emotions. The use of essential oils will also be incorporated to awaken the senses.
Suitable for all ages, the emphasis of this workshop is to create a space which encourages us to to go inward and reconnect with our female nature.
