About the event
Saturday, May 20th, New Moon in Taurus
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 invitational time of the new moon. With both the new moon and sun in Taurus, this is a time for manifesting abundance, for taking action to achieve your goals and to feel grounded as you move forward.
We’ll start with breathwork, meditation and setting intentions, then move into a gentle yoga flow to explore your desires and dreams, followed by restorative poses to seal in your intentions and set actions in motion, supporting bringing your vision for abundance into fulfillment, and then we'll close the circle with intuitive cards, 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 through the body, evoking curiosity and possibilty, so that you may then draw forward supportive energies to aid you in taking action towards your intentions through the new lunar cycle.
During the restorative section, this will be a time for introspection, for calling in energies to clarify 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.
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
