About the event
Thursday, August 31st, Blue "Super" Full Moon in Pisces
Join Newtown Wellness Collective’s founder, Jen Rizza, and Spiritual Therapist Victoria Pekhnik for a blend of meditation, gentle vinyasa yoga flow, restorative poses and space for inquisition, journaling and honoring the expansive time of this second full moon in August. As the last full moon of the summer, this is a time to feel all that has been rising through the spring and summer coming into fruition. It is a time of harvest, of maturation and bounty, and with this, comes invitation for new space to open, and new possibilities to be realized!
We’ll start with breathwork, meditation and setting intentions, then move into a gentle yoga flow to express the culmination of summer, followed by restorative poses to hold space for all that is yet to unfold, supporting you in this beautiful time of flow and dynamicsim with the full moon in watery Pisces. We'll close the circle with intuitive cards and time for reflection.
The flow practice will follow traditional Hatha yoga sequences, all adaptable for varying levels of yoga. Some prior experience with yoga is recommended, though not required. Throughout the flow practice, the invitation will be to move energy through the body, exploring celebration and gratitude, a recognition of all you've achieved and cultivated and now hold in appreciation.
During the restorative section, this will be a time for dreaming, for listening into what will next call your attention. These poses will be nourishing, supportive with the use of props, and will offer a time to restore balance and find alignment within. Restorative poses are gentle, relaxing, and held for longer periods of time to give the body and mind a place to slow down and reconnect within.
For anyone familiar with yoga, this will be a rich and deeply soulful yoga practice. And for anyone new to yoga or curious to expand their practice, you are invited to bring an open heart and open mind to explore yoga poses in a safe and welcoming setting.
Things to bring:
Yoga mat - if you don't have one, there are mats available to borrow at the studio : )
Journal or notebook and a pen
Any crystals, totems or other meaningful items to support your practice
