Celestial celebration total lunar eclipse workshop with Anita Smith
Total lunar eclipse workshop
Come and celebrate the celestial event of the total lunar eclipse. Learn about the moon’s supercharged energy and how to honour and harness this increased energy by using yoga asana (poses), meditation, mudras (hand gestures), pranayama (breath focus), crystals and essential oils.
A total lunar eclipse is when there is a cosmic alignment of the sun, the earth and the moon creating a temporary blocking out of the moon’s light. The obscuring of the moon’s light offers us an opportunity to reset our private life and to address and break patterns which don’t serve us anymore. It takes the energy of a full moon and increases it significantly, encouraging us to focus on the things close to our heart – our emotions, relationships and family. It is the perfect time to set new intentions, connect to our creativity and practice some self love. An eclipse is a time of positive transformation, a time to realise the potential and possibilities within ourselves, therefore bringing forward a chance for growth.
During this workshop we will practise a soft and soothing moon salutation to embrace the moon’s creative energy and yin poses to surrender to the nurturing energy of the moon. We will focus on grounding poses which are important during any transformative phase as well as poses which open the heart and hips allowing us to let go of the old and create space for the new. We will use mudras, crystals and essential oils to support our practice as well as pranayama, meditation and intention setting. We will emerge feeling lighter and shining even brighter than before.
