New Moon in Virgo: How are you serving your “self”?

Virgo Mantra: I Serve.

Self-Inquiry: How can I serve my own health & well-being with my practice, so that I may be of service in other areas of my life?

Invitation: Create or re-commit to simple daily routines that serve your physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual health. (The classic Sun Salutation – sample video below – serves our body/mind through a familiar, grounding sequence, which can be repeated as needed to soothe and/or energize the nervous system.)

Virgo Highlights: Routines support freedom; Self-care in terms of healthy practices (specifically for digestion and nervous system); Devotion to a personal cause; Organization in order to bring clarity and grounding; Plant medicine; Sovereignty – you are complete unto yourself.

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.
