About the event
Friday, May 5th, Full Moon in Scorpio
Join Newtown Wellness Collective’s founder, Jen Rizza, for a combination of yoga flow, restorative poses and space for inquisition, journaling and honoring the sacred time of the full moon. With the full moon in Scorpio, and especially in lunar eclipse, this will be a time to go into deeper emotional curiosity, opening things which are hard to face and lovingly honoring the transmutation of Scorpio while the Sun is in stable and earth-bound Taurus.
We’ll start with breathwork, meditation and setting intentions, then move into a gentle yoga flow to release yang/masculine energies and emotions, followed by restorative poses to call in renewing feminine energies for acceptance and grace, all supporting your intentions into fulfillment, and then close the circle with reflection and activations.
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 out of the body, opening and creating space for more supportive energies to aid you in achieving your intentions through the end of the moon phase.
During the restorative section, this will be a time for introspection, for calling in energies to aid you in achieving your goals. 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.

Yoga mat - if you don't have one, there are mats available to borrow at the studio : )
