SATTVIC MOON EVENTS

In Aquanimous Yoga, we observe moon days through meditation and ritual to connect ourselves with the functioning of the universe and to make us aware of the effect the universal energy can have on us individually.

Being 70% water, we are subject to the moon’s gravitational pull at different times of the month, giving rise to different energetic experiences. Because of these differences in energies it is advised to take rest from our yoga practice. It is also said that practitioners are more likely to injure themselves on moon days therefore it is best to rest.

Join us for an Aquanimous evening of Meditation, Relaxation and Ayurveda.

SATTVIC MOON PRACTICES

During the Full Moon, energies are high and it is time to pause and take things slow and easy once again. A Full Moon meditation and ritual is a powerful way to accomplish this. We burn smudge sticks to burn away the old, or take a dip in the salt water to clean and wash away what no longer serves us. This ritual marks our inner transformation in a formal, ceremonial way. Emphasizing to ourselves and the Universe that we are ready to let go so that the new version of ourselves can emerge, making way for new magical opportunities to come to us.

Bodywork is a broad term for therapies and manual techniques that involve touching and manipulating the body, and Thai Yoga Therapy is one of them. While it’s true that we work with the body (bodywork), it is only an entry point for us to connect with something deeper. As a natural medicine, Thai Yoga Therapy, like Ayurveda, uses the Five Element Theory to understand individuality and identify imbalances. As a spiritual practice, it incorporates the Buddhist principles of breath awareness, compassion and loving-kindness. As a physical practice, it is a form of an assisted PNF stretch with applications of deep acupressure along the body, creating a relaxed supported bodywork that allows a profound sense of space and relaxation, bringing opposites (yin/yang, solar/lunar, masculine/feminine) into balance and union or Sattva.

To further integrate Ayurvedic practices into our lifestyle, we will also introduce a gentle and natural self-care practice called Oil Bath, which you can do at the comfort of your own home. Using Almond Oil and Castile Soap that is 100% eco-friendly, home-made, organic and free from harmful chemicals, Oil Bath is a self-care practice that has long been part of Ayurveda’s deep-cleansing philosophy. On a physical level, it offers pain and stiffness relief especially in the back, shoulders and knees. It also improves circulation, digestion, and metabolism. Psychologically, it helps clear the mind as it can have a meditative and soothing effect, giving us benefits that are more than skin deep.

We couldn’t think of a better way of honoring our body during the Full Moon. We’re looking forward to seeing you! Bhavatu Sabba Manggalam: May you always be well.

The New Moon phase is a time of calmness, of introspection. It is the small pause before growth and expansion. This is an optimal time for planning and seeding our intentions. The dark side of the moon, with its mysterious unseen forces, offers a nurturing environment where our intentions can establish roots before their miraculous manifestations begin to sprout and reach out to the stars.

We will explore and relax further with a Lotus Awakening practice where we will induce complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. In this practice, the subconscious and unconscious dimensions occur spontaneously so we can work on releasing long-held emotions that we no longer need.

Afterwards, we will replenish our energies with an Ayurvedic dish to further balance the body, remove toxins, and enhance digestion.

With the use of candlelight, incense and essential oils, let us create balance, positivity and well-being in our lives.
