Moon Yoga 101: Syncing with the Moon You may have seen “Moon Yoga” pop up on the The Nest’s weekly schedule and may have a few questions about this new class.
Moon yoga is based on the idea of tapping into the earth’s natural cycles of the Moon and applying the different ebb and flow of these cycles to our yoga practice. Just as the moon goes through phases so does our human body. We'll explore how each phase affects our physical and mental states.
The intentions, centering and yoga poses will align with the type of energy the moon is bringing with in to help us to hone into its energetic pulse. Hip opening, heart opening and shoulder stretches are just one of the many focuses Moon Yoga covers. Join us on Tuesdays from 6:45- 7:55pm. Register at www.yourmoonyoga.com Moon Yoga FAQ
