Style: Ashtanga
Length: 90 minutes
Focus: Blue Moon: A grounded practise
Props: Block and belt
Date Recorded: 31/10/2020
This class was recorded on Halloween (ooooh) and on a blue moon (the second full moon in the month). The moon cycle influences our body, mind and energy; traditionally a full moon represents the peak energy, a culmination of all the effort and projects we started at the new moon. It's a time to reflect and observe, a time to release and let go of anything that is not nourishing our lives. But the high energy of full moon means we may not be in the best mindset to make decisions and start new things as we can be more reactive and flighty. So in this session we balance out the high energy of the full moon with some lunge salutations in place of traditional sun salutations and with modified standing series that allows us to stay close to the mat and cultivate the connection with the Earth. Moving through a selection of primary series seated postures before a final meditation where we affirm our openness to new opportunities and our courage to let go of anything no longer serving us.
