This week’s yoga and astral insights 23.11.20

This week we are starting to feel the build up of energies leading up to the Full Moon Eclipse in Gemini next Monday – Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which is the protagonist this week.

Mercury is in Scorpio right now, a place where Mercury doesn’t feel very comfortable as he is the messenger and is fast moving, and Scorpio slows him down and forces him to go deep.

At the beginning of the week, Mercury trines Neptune (which is stationary in Pisces and will be going direct towards the end of the week). This creates a beautiful energy to smooth things over and open ourselves to be vulnerable within complex and difficult conversations. Neptune takes the edge off the ego which allows to drop defences and open up feeling safe to do so. Neptune is stationary this week, leaving us feeling a bit lazy, daydreaming while also opening up our creativity and inspiration.

Mercury will also sextile Jupiter (conjuncting Pluto until December 8th). This conjunction helps us move into our personal power after going through so many trials this year. We are able to bring this up in deep conversation, either with ourselves of with others, we are able to see our own resilience and feel stronger.

Next Monday we have a full moon eclipse in Gemini – Mercury rules Gemini, and he will sextile Saturn on that same day. Saturn likes order and putting things in their place. Here we have a full moon in Gemini, showing us the two sides of the coin, so we can make a decision. As there is an eclipse, there’ll be a blind spot that will be shown to us so we can then evaluate and decide.

During an eclipse it is not recommended to put crystals out to charge, set intentions or do any rituals… Just to relax and stay within.

At next week’s Moon Flow Yoga we will let go during Yoga Nidra to complete surrender to whichever issues the eclipse is wanting to show to us.
At tonight’s session, we will be preparing for this upcoming eclipse, stirring the flow of our water to open up our creative power, working with Neptune’s beautiful energy. To book for either of this sessions click here.

This week’s yoga and astral insights 16.09.19

Dear yogis and yoginis,

While everyone seems to be getting busier and busier and evenings are turning cooler, I am super grateful for this handsome autumn sunshine we are having this week.
What are you grateful for?

This week’s yoga:

  • Wednesday 7pm – Open Level candle lit yoga
  • Saturday 11am – Open Level energising morning yoga

Both classes will take place at the Upper Hocking Hall, WPCA, Yerbury Road, N19 4RS.
Please get in touch to book your mat.

BREAKING NEWS: We are moving!

Welcome to The Glass House, a new home studio opening in Upper Holloway. This will be Stay Gold yoga’s home from October onwards. A new timetable with additional classes will be revealed in the next few days – our Wednesday evening and Saturday morning classes will remain the same.

The benefits of moving

  • The Glass House is a green quiet haven in the midst of the busy Holloway Road. Situated just behind the main road, it looks out to an interior garden, surrounded by nature and calm
  • The studio houses a max of 6 students, so will be offering smaller classes tailored to specific abilities and levels
  • The Glass House aims to offer a unique and luxurious experience. It’s a very private venue, even though walls and ceiling are glass (the ceiling is reflective so no one can see through it from the outside)
  • Just think of looking at the stars during your evening class just before drifting off to Savasana… bliss!

Transition period, pricing and new booking system

The transition period will be the month of October. During this time a few new classes will take shape as we see the demand of our regular students and welcome new students to the space.

As capacity is limited, a booking system will be implemented from the beginning of October. Prices will vary slightly from October 1st:

  • Drop in – £15, increasing just £1 from current price
  • Block of 6 classes – £76
  • Block of 10 classes – £110
  • Concessions – £10 – there’ll be specific community classes available for those with concessions (students, unemployed, low waged and retired)

SPECIAL OFFER: Blocks of 10 and 6 classes can be bought at current prices until the end of September and will be valid until their end by date (3 months for 10 classes and 2 months for 6 classes). Get yours in class or contact me here.

Astral insights

This week, like all weeks in September is very busy with aspects.

We are still feeling the influence of the full moon in Pisces last week. Materialising illusions, dealing with delusion and embodying our dreams. This week starts with Mercury (planet of communication) opposing Chiron (planet of vulnerability) in Libra (relationships). This could mean we could start the week with some communication / conversation to do with a relationship (business, partnership, romantic, family …) which may leave us in a place of vulnerability. As Chiron is in Aries (first sign of the zodiac, dealing with our primal, individual needs) we may react to feeling vulnerable by being defensive. But, with Chiron retrograding we have an opportunity to grow by realising that this is an old defence mechanism and trying a different approach.

On Wednesday, Saturn starts going direct, after retrograding since the end of April. It’s also in its sign, Capricorn, until March 2020 and it wants us to be adults and take responsibility. Saturn is the gatekeeper of our 3D reality. It rules time and space, the material world and the responsibilities it carries. It also rules karma – which doesn’t need to be negative, karma is the consequence to an action. The next few weeks Saturn will be putting things in their place, putting order and making sure debts are paid: not just material but also emotional.
So, our big lessons in adulting are about to start!

I look forward to seeing some of you on the mat this week!

Much 💛
