Full Moon Yoga Gratitude

After already feeling gratitude for my Full Moon Yoga class last night, I was extra pleased to come outside and see the moon between the clouds. We had tapped into our divine feminine energy and filled the indoor space with such beauty. Now the sky was gorgeous as well.

Rarely do I capture a decent shot of the moon, but these aren’t too shabby. At every stop light on my way home, I took a few shots. The street lights often got in the way, but some views were spectacular. Of course, the camera never does it justice.

It really never seems to matter how my day has unfolded. I can be frustrated, uptight, sad, angry, discouraged when I arrive at the studio to teach. But, a mere five minutes in, it all melts away. It is the sacred space, the people, the breathing, and the energy that soothes and restores me. Gratitude.

Here is a wonderful article by Jen Reviews about the Benefits of Yoga.

Full Moon Madness?

It was obvious by my daughter’s behavior yesterday that a full moon was coming. She always gets a bit wacko around that time. Of course, ed-pillsss.com of Halloween doesn’t help.

But, thankfully,¬†tonight’s full moon also provided for a really cool yoga class. I taught a nice meditative flow that I found on Yoga international. It was a slow, imagery enhanced moon salutation that my students and I really enjoyed. It left us feeling calm, nurtured, and quiet.

So, what’s the deal? Do we all need to do more moon salutations to avoid The Lunar Effect? I would be all for it! How about you?
