Full Moon Day Yoga practices led by Christine Donovan, ERYT-500, accompanied by Mihika Paranjpe, ( From 7 Vibrations) , Vibrational Sound Therapy practitioner and  musician from India playing Zen Sound Bath for deep relaxation and singing mantras.

 

The full moon day is the perfect time to send peaceful, loving thoughts to the entire world.

 

Honoring the pure reflective light of the Full Moon.  What exists in nature has a corresponding interconnection with its counterpart in the body. The moon is closely associated with our internal moon, the mind and the ida nadi, the lunar channel. It is because of this intensification the yogis recommend that full moon days be spent with an elevated mind in spiritual pursuits. As the moon cycles between its waxing and waning phases, so does our mental condition. When the moon is full (called Purnima or Poornima), whatever the mind experiences is intensified, feeling an increase in creativity, a heightened sense of intuition, and all the mental processes and the feminine characteristics of our personality.

 

Join us for the  Full Moon Yoga Practice,

Pranayama, meditation , Vedic mantras with original classical music from India.

and enjoy deep relaxation and remove the stress with vibrational healing benefits with Zen Sound bowls.

Afterwards, hang out for relaxing conversation by a fire pit, enjoying mint tea or chai or bring your own favorite beverage.
