Deep Rest Lunar - Restorative Yoga & Reiki

Somatic Movement, Restorative Yoga & Reiki
Bonus Treat: A Personal Eclipse Exploration & Yoga Nidra

Rest and release. Following our Deep Rest Solar Eclipse Workshop, we now continue to explore the energy of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse through movement, healing and astrology. This workshop will include some gentle Restorative Yoga, Reiki healing and Yoga Nidra. This nourishing combo is guaranteed to send you into another dimension of relaxation! It's the perfect antidote to stress and a great way to reset and restore. We'll explore the energy of the eclipse, which takes place on 16th May, in your natal chart and journal as we look for the ultimate release of all that is no longer part of our journey towards our true purpose.

The slow and gentle stretching we begin with eases us to start dropping out of the mind and into the body. We then move into the restorative practice, which includes longer held postures. The mixture of movement and stillness is a treat for your nervous system and will help to ease stress and anxiety held in the body and mind. To relax is to rest deeply and when we set aside time to truly rest and relax we let our system renew and recover from daily stresses and strains, we let the body & mind do what it needs to do to re-balance. Here we can find some inner stillness and connection.

As we let the body remain still, you’ll individually receive Reiki healing intended to complement your relaxation experience while aligning any energetic imbalances. Resurging from this deep and restful place, we’ll have a short break to warm our soul and re-ground ourselves with some herbal tea, lovingly provided by Tao Do Cha and TEAllerman. We’ll then whiz through the energy of the eclipse for the 12 zodiac signs and you’ll receive a brief exploration of how that pertains to you and your life. The practice of Yoga Nidra is our check-in with ourselves following the revelations of the eclipse energy. We’ll then have the chance to journal around the themes of the day and especially the Scorpio area of our life, seeking some much needed release.

Eclipses are life-changing. Yes, that sounds dramatic...and it's true. They usher in changes, which at the time could seem disruptive and uncomfortable. Only to reveal themselves as hidden gifts once we’ve accepted and surrendered to their force. Once we’ve learnt to receive them as tools for transformation. The Nodes of the Moon are what causes eclipses and in the practice of Astrology they are associated with karmic pushes and dharmic pulls. The first set of eclipses in 2022 sits on the axis of abundance - Taurus and Scorpio. The axis of power and persistence, the place in our charts where we dig deep to transform before we can blossom. An axis of water and earth, where we learn to release and receive, purging habits, thoughts and desires that no longer sustain our wellbeing to create the space to receive offerings with open hearts and opportunities that nourish. From within.

The moon on the day visits her place of fall, Scorpio, where she is least comfortable as she feels weakened by the intensity of the scorpion. Opposing her is the Sun, currently in Taurus, ruled by Venus. The planet of sweetness and love is currently in her detriment, in the sign of Aries. She's got her warrior on! We'll be feeling the feels and using these influences to move between flow and form in all the practices that we’ll be sharing with you. All you have to do is decide that you want to rest and release.

Lucy and I are both water signs, of the North Node in Taurus generation and we both have its ruler, Venus in the 8th house, although in different signs. We are both going through our Nodal Return and are truly experiencing these integrations as we guide you and share in your own transformative journey. Thank you for trusting in us.

Deep Rest Solar - Restorative Yoga & Reiki

Somatic Movement, Restorative Yoga & Reiki
Bonus Treat: A Personal Eclipse Exploration & Yoga Nidra

Rest and receive. Two words that seem so foreign to so many of us. On the 30th April, on the Taurus New Moon, on this first Solar Eclipse of 2022, you are invited to rest. You are invited to receive. Just as you are.

This workshop starts off with some gentle movement, followed by Restorative Yoga, Reiki healing and Yoga Nidra. This nourishing combo is guaranteed to send you into another dimension of relaxation! It's the perfect antidote to stress and a great way to reset and restore. We'll follow up by exploring the energy of the eclipse in your natal chart and journal to set the right intentions forward.

The slow and gentle stretching we begin with eases us to start dropping out of the mind and into the body. We then move into the restorative practice, which includes longer held postures. The mixture of movement and stillness is a treat for your nervous system and will help to ease stress and anxiety held in the body and mind.

Eclipses are life-changing. Yes, that sounds dramatic...and it's true. They usher in changes, which at the time could seem disruptive and uncomfortable. Only to reveal themselves as hidden gifts once we’ve accepted and surrendered to their force. Once we’ve learnt to receive them as tools for transformation. The Nodes of the Moon are what causes eclipses and in the practice of Astrology they are associated with karmic pushes and dharmic pulls. This very first one of 2022 is on the axis of abundance - Taurus and Scorpio. The axis of power and persistence, the place in our charts where we dig deep to transform before we can blossom. An axis of water and earth, where we learn to release and receive, purging habits, thoughts and desires that no longer sustain our wellbeing to create the space to receive offerings with open hearts and opportunities that nourish. From within.

The moon on the day visits her place of exaltation, Taurus, where she can express herself in her most exquisite abundance. Her ruler, Venus, is also in exaltation in the sign of Pisces, where she is her most loving and sweet self. There is a planetary pool party in watery Pisces already, that gracefully complements the earth energy. We’ll be using these influences to move between flow and form in all the practices that we’ll be sharing with you. All you have to do is decide that you want to rest and receive.

YOUR GUIDES

Yoga teacher in Lisbon.
Having originally trained in Hatha/Ashtanga, Lucy now practices and teaches in a much more embodied way, allowing space to drop out of the mind and into the body.
She uses a combination of Yoga Asana, somatic movement and breathwork to rebalance and calm the nervous system. These have been the practices that have been most profound in her own personal practice.
Lucy's style is soft, fluid and often breath led. There's no strict alignment, just you and your body, however, it needs to be in that moment.
