Full Moon

Full Moon … a time to take in the fullness of what you’ve been dreaming, planning, cultivating. A few poses here to inspire an openness to what is becoming.

Take a few Moon Salutations to warm the body in a reflective way. Then go with how your body wants to move! Maybe add a few reflective poses like the ones below. Note: The “lived-in” quality of my home doesn’t stop the practice 😉 … Create an oasis on your mat, whatever your chaos!

Let me know your fave moon-inspired poses in the comments ;).

Anahatasana — Heart-melting Pose … Whoa to the long arms in this pic 😂 …
I don’t know the name and yet I love the dignity, the reflecting back, and the outer hip stretch!
Forward Fold — rest your head on 1 or 2 blocks. Reflective, turning inward.

Wide-Legged Forward Fold with block to support head.
Enjoy the full moon and all you are becoming!

I practice & share Hatha Yoga for a simple reason -- it works. Hatha Yoga in the Himalayan Tradition is a holistic system of philosophy & practices passed down through an unbroken 5,000 year lineage of Himalayan sages. What Hatha Yoga is not: trendy, bendy or one-&-done. What Hatha Yoga is: a systematic approach to uncovering the real, authentic YOU in body, mind & spirit. Hatha Yoga cultivates well-being, stability, clarity & ease in modern life through traditional, time-tested practices. I also recognize both our shared humanity & our differing privileges & barriers -- I am a cis-gendered white female with a graduate degree, who has dealt with family trauma & an eating disorder. My goals in my own practice include to cultivate awareness of my own privileges & social conditioning, unlearn & re-learn in order to be mindful & take compassionate action toward a more beautiful, just & peaceful world for ALL humans, creatures & our Earth. I'm making mistakes daily, & hopeful that I'm falling forward toward these goals & vision. I hope we can walk our paths & support each other along the way.
