    "If you just allow your body and mind to rest, the healing will come by itself”. Thich Nhat Hanh

    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance

    Sunday, February 5th, 9:30am - 10:45am
    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance
     
    Online or In-Person Class

    The full moon is a special time, especially for those who are following a yogic path, because it is an optimum time for clearing and balancing our mind and our energy.

    The moon is deeply and intimately connected with our mind and our thoughts. Meditation can help to cleanse feelings of agitation, and can even provide us with a great opportunity to let go of the mental or emotional baggage that has been weighing us down.

    Meditating at the full moon also help us to unleash our creativity, whether we are focused on specific creative projects or we need new ways of thinking about the problems and issues we are facing. This practice can help us to release old, stuck, energy that no longer serves us.

    During the class, we will clear our mind and balance our body’s chakras (energy centers) through a variety of Kundalini Yoga practices including breath work (pranayam), meditation, and a yoga nidra savasana (relaxation).

    Cost: PranaShanti Drop-In Fee, Class Package or Membership.
