This full moon, we celebrate the moon energy through the beautiful calming practice of Chandranamaskara. Chandranamaskara is a cooling sequence, more yin in nature than the intrinsical yang Suryanamaskara.
Practicing the Chandranamaskara takes us on a symbolic journey of introspection. It is a prayer that grounds and focuses on the body and the mind. It helps us to access and affect our inner spaces through 'flow, which is an outcome of breath, movement, and intent coming together.
Just as the moon goes through dark phases and returns to its full brilliance, the Moon Salutation drops into the depths of lunging and squatting and returns to expansive standing poses that radiate beauty and magnetic power. The energy of the flow reenacts the cycle of the moon's journey through the night sky.
This sequence of poses strengthens and tones the abdominal and reproductive organs. It calms and soothes the nervous system.
So, come, learn more about Chandranamaskara and reap its many benefits!
The session will also include sound and breathwork, and moonbathing. We end with sharing over a healthy warm snack and drink.
