New Moon Yin Yoga, a 90 min practice
Friday, June 11th 5:30-7pm — $20
This class is for all levels and experience with yin yoga. *This workshop is in person at Portland Yoga Collective.*
Yin is the practice of creating balance, harmony & ease. It is slow & gentle. It is supportive while creating space in the joints, connective tissues & muscles.
In the Lunar Cycle, the New Moon is a time of rest & reset. It is both the end & the beginning of a cycle. As the most yin time of the lunar month, it is an invitation to stop where you are & lie down. To invite in space without expectation.
Expect a practice centered on curiosity & ease. Expect intention setting. Expect mudra, pranayama & shapes held between 3-5 minutes (maybe longer.)
This class is BYO supports. Suggested supports include (but are not limited to!) pillows and/or a bolster, blankets, yoga blocks, an eye pillow & a strap or belt.
I began my Yin practice at Prema Yoga in Brooklyn, NY with Bobbie Marchand. I trained in Yin & Daoism with Megan Moss Freeman & Thomas Droge in NYC. I continue to study Traditional Chinese Medicine theory & pranayama through The Studio, practice QiGong with Master Faxiang Hou & attend Daoism class with Kyle Henry (all in NYC.)

Join myself and Kelley Voegelin for this one hour virtual Lunar workshop.
Lunar Rhythm is the instinctual cycle we all follow; each lunar phase pulls us differently, cycling through shifting energetics and opportunities to connect to ritual. In this workshop, you will learn how the darkness of the New Moon offers a pause through which your own wisdom and power shine. In addition, we you will create your own New Moon Intention to follow you throughout this lunar cycle.
*Stay tuned for our next installment of Lunar Rhythm*
This powerful exploration of the energetic centers in the body will resume when we are able to gather & sweat together!
