    Outdoors and In-Person

    In our busy world, with our hectic schedules .... parents and kids need time to just be together and connect as a family. Take this time to breathe, stretch and connect!

    2. Finding Joy—Family yoga involves taking yoga less seriously. The focus is in finding the fun and joy in moving one’s body and sharing with your loved ones.

    3. Finding Peace—You will move, laugh and share and finally come into savasana for deep relaxation.

    4. Learning Tools For Life—Family yoga teaches breathing techniques that both kids and parents can bring into their daily lives.
     
    It doesn’t matter what reason you choose to try family yoga. Just do it!

    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance

    Wednesday, July 13th, 6:30am - 7:30am
    Full Moon Meditation for Clearing & Balance
     
    Online or In-Person

    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.
