"Change is the only constant in life."   - Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher

As we can attest to today, as in the past, change is the only constant in life. As our life goes through cycles and transformations, our yoga practice should adapt and be responsive to our changing needs.

In my experience, a restorative yoga practice is an essential part of these shifting cycles for men and women. Early on in my yoga practice, I was introduced to a restorative sequence designed for the monthly cycle in a woman's life. This sequence (and its variations from different sources) has been an important part of my monthly flow and has offered me balance, clarity, and rest that I am so grateful for.

In this workshop, scheduled around the New Moon in June, we will focus on postures that are deeply supported and restorative. While designed specifically for a woman's needs during menstruation, the postures in this cycle have immense benefit for men and women any time rest is needed.

These shapes are designed to bring softness and space to the abdomen and low back, can be helpful in energizing body/mind, encourage apana (downward & outward energy flow), and may help shift emotional blocks or moods common during menstruation.

You will be provided with a copy of an illustrated Moon Cycle Sequence to practice at home.

All levels welcome, including beginners.
