Join us for an uplifting monthly discussion group to explore how the principles of yoga can be applied in our everyday life. This is a FREE, drop-in group that meets for one hour on the first Saturday of the month from 5:30-6:30pm. We welcome new students as it is a starting point for more study, building good community with people committed to seeing each other's intrinsic greatness, and dissolving the sense of separateness.
Civilization’s way of tracking time was born out of the lunar rhythms of a woman’s monthly cycle, or moon cycle. The origins of the word “moon” come from the word “month” and “menses” both in Old English and Greek. Women would experience their period together on the New Moon and would ovulate at the Full Moon. The Lunar Calendar is what is innately inside each of us and, as women, many of us are beginning to remember this cycle, and to align our lives with it.
On the New Moon we set our intentions, consciously and deliberately focusing on the process over two weeks to the Full Moon, when the manifestations are clearly illuminated. One of the most valuable tools in this journey is journaling where we can explore our deepest selves. You will be guided through a writing process in daily emails so you can participate in your own time during the lunar cycle from New Moon to Full Moon. Each day will bring forward various themes based on current astrological influences and the phase of the moon.
Registration for this event closes at 11:59pm Saturday, May 4th.

Chandra +Light is a special fundraising event on the full moon. We will dissolve physical tension and ease mental stress through a nourishing practice of fully-supported postures, subtle assists with essential oils, and thoughtful meditations while raising monies for environmental protection and animal welfare. Afterward, we will celebrate the lunar astrological energetics with vegan goodies and kombucha specially crafted for this event. This practice is suitable for everyone with no yoga experience required and all props are provided. Proceeds will go to Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center and it is hosted by La Luna Alchemy, Gandhi Global Center for Peace, Yoga on Union, and Toes Yoga.
The full moon has been revered since ancient times for symbolizing the peak of our creativity as it is dominated by pranic energy. The upward moving energy during this period often increases our physical energy, causing less or interrupted sleep, and the potential for overstimulation of the mind. Engaging in a restorative yoga practice at this time allows us to replenish our energy and harness our creative power towards our fullest potential.
+Light (plus light) is a campaign to spread positive awareness globally. When we dissect the basic building blocks of molecules into tiny subatomic particles ultimately we are left with the essence of energetics. And this essence can be influenced by our thoughts and intentions, changing our perceptions and reality. When adding “plus light” to any action or thought in our lives, we are sending love and healing around the world, awakening our connection to everyone and everything in the universe.
This month’s event will convene under the May Scorpio Flower Moon and registration is $25. You can also participate by contributing to the fundraiser through the DONATE button below.
