This week’s yoga and astral insights

Dear yogis and yoginis

If you are reading this I have some good news for you: it looks like you have survived Blue Monday (yesterday)! Well done 😉.
The concept of Blue Monday was ‘created’ by a holiday company by calculating, using an equation, which would be the lowest, most depressing day of the year. It is usually the 3rd Monday in January and, guess what, it sits very close to the black moon (which is a time of de-pression). So the darkest point in the darkest month of the year, right after the sparks of the holidays – no surprise we are feeling blue!

This week’s yoga will focus in an uplifting and nourishing practice – tuning inwards in preparation to the new moon on Friday and setting intentions for the year ahead in the Restorative workshop!

Monday:
7.30pm – Level 1 Beginners Yoga

Tuesday:
7pm – Level 2 Intermediate Yoga

Wednesday:
8.30am – Pranayama and Meditation
10am – Community Yoga

Thursday:
7pm – Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra
+++ Start the year with an intention based Restorative Yoga class ending with Yoga Nidra +++

Restorative yoga is restful, nourishing and healing – emphasising in comfort and deep rest, allowing the body to heal without interference.
Inducing deep relaxation, restorative yoga will help your blood pressure and stress hormone levels to drop, reducing anxiety and helping you sleep better.
It can also have therapeutic effects on the heart, and on the immune, digestive and other physiological systems.

Yoga Nidra translates as ‘the yogic sleep’ – a deep state of consciousness when we are neither asleep nor awake but experience total physical, mental and emotional relaxation. Even a short nidra can completely nourish and refresh the mind and body.

This Thursday falls in a period just before the new moon (on Friday) which is what we call the black moon or a blackmooning period. This is because we are not able to see the moon, or we see a black moon. The energy of this night is perfect for ‘being in the dark’ and turning inwards, setting intentions for the new moon and doing yin, slow, nurturing practices.

Saturday:
11am – Open Level Yoga

You can book your classes here.
All classes will take place at The Glass House in Holloway Road.

Stay warm and take it easy this week 🔥🌚🔥

I look forward to see you on the mat soon!

Xmas timetable, Xmas offers, new classes, FREE restorative yoga taster and MORE!!!

Dear yogis and yoginis,
First I want to send out some full moon blessings for tonight’s full moon in Gemini. There’s a lot of numerical synchronicity with this full moon as it falls on the 12th day of the 12th month at 12:12h. In numerology we look at 1 + 2 = 3 —-> the energy of one individual in union with another gives birth to something new, creation. Creation can only happen where there has been separation (1+1) and duality exists (2) so union is possible in this realm and from that union there is a birth of something new. Repetition is usually a good omen of synchronicity and higher vibration.

I am only hoping that all the separation and extremism we are going through as a collective can take a new turn with the full moon falling on election’s day tomorrow and that indeed the numbers are right and it can be the birth of something new! We will be holding a meditation for positive change at the end of class tonight 8-8.15pm right under the moon at The Glass House. If you are not coming to class don’t worry, you can join us from wherever you are. The more the merrier!
