A full moon is that phase of the moon when it is completely illuminated as seen from the earth. During this time, the earth is right between the sun and the moon, with all three in a line. The full moon has been said to symbolize different things in different cultures. It has religious and spiritual significance in some cultures, and in others, it is believed to symbolize the rhythm of time. In India, it is traditionally believed that the full moon affects the movement and flow of water in creation. Buddhists believe it is a time for spiritual reflection. The full moon is also thought to bring on swings in the mind and the emotions, hence the term “lunatic.” In this universe, every object has an impact on the other. The full moon as well as the new moon are thought to have an effect on the body and mind to some extent. But practicing pranayama, yoga and meditation can help counter these effects. This nourishing class takes relaxation to a new level as we move with the full moon that will light the sky on the 8th December. Join me for an hour to switch off and escape from the daily grind and move our bodies to the moon whilst bathed in candlelight. We'll begin with a deep breathing meditation giving thanks to the moon. “Full moon meditation is very well known. The moon is also very connected to spiritual practices. You can say that these meditations are more compelling.” - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar We'll move on to a 35 to 40 minute calming deep stretch where we'll flow peacefully whilst bathed in moonlight and candlelight. We'll end on a deeply relaxing yoga nidra meditation, after which you'll float home to a blissful nights sleep. This is perfect for any level, from beginner upwards - the main goal is relaxation.
