Full Moon Mandala Practice May 15 with Denise

In the Tantric tradition, the full moon is personified as feminine and bestows nectar. It is a time when moon gazing or moon honoring can bring forth powerful stillness and healing. We'll follow the cycle of the full moon, practicing a well-rounded mandala of yogic arts to both release accumulated tensions and energetic congestion from the past month and create a more clarified inner space for the month to come.

Note that the hours of the classes vary due to studio availability and hours of light (we want to practice after dark). Each month's focus will draw upon the pagan cycles of nature at that time. During the summer months, when weather allows, we may practice outside in the night air at various tucked away locations! Each full moon flower mandala includes two petals. Take either one or both of the petals/hours. Arrive and leave on the hour.
