“The soul, like the moon, is new, and always new again.” -Lalla, translated by Coleman Barks
The nourishing, rejuvenating inhale is akin to the moon. You will Inhale the Moon by embodying lunar Prana Vinyasa Flow sequences guided by Carson Efird inspired by Shiva Rea. Through an integrated asana, mantra and mudra practice you will move circularly like the moon herself at a relaxed, receptive pace that invites Ida Nadi to flow freely. The reservoir of Soma, lunar nectar in your body, will be replenished by imbibing pranayama and moon bathing in meditation. As the 14th century mystic yogini, Lalla says, you will renew your soul in the same way that the moon is ‘always new again.’ Let's come together to subtly awaken the microcosm of our creative beings with the macrocosmic rhythm of the new moon rising.
The Gong is a therapeutic instrument that raises an individuals internal vibratory frequency. The layers of sound produced by the gong help reduce stress, stimulate the glandular system, and serves as a powerful energetic source to break up emotional, physiological and spiritual blockages. In this experience guided by Alisha Nissenfeld, practitioners will settle into Savasana as sound waves ripple through the room, bodies, and energy channels to make space for what is new, fresh, and needed to move forward.
