2:30 Introduction to Astrology w/Gypsy Vibes
Astrology is a tool we can all use to observe patterns and cycles of time to tap into the rhythms of nature.This class will be a beginning to expanding your knowledge of astrology and getting familiar with the map of your soul or the natal birth chart. Together, we will explore the meanings of the elements, modes, signs and planets building the foundation of understanding the basics of this fascinating study.
3:30 Talk on current astrological cycles
Gypsy Vibes will take a look at the current planetary cycles and share insights with the group on the astrology of this New Moon Eclipse and beyond.
This yoga workshop combines two powerful approaches for experiencing deep relaxation. Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra naturally complement each other as practices, as both are meditative forms of embodied practice.
*Suitable for all practitioners, regardless of experience with yoga/meditation. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring your mat! We will have blocks available, but please feel free to bring bolsters, blankets or anything else you might need to feel comfortable.*
4:00 Yin Yoga w/Audrey Dohm
Yin Yoga: Yin is a cooling practice and a great balance to the dynamic Yang styles of quickly moving through postures. Through longer holds and slower motions, this practice stimulates and targets connective tissues and joints, working into the edge of postures. We will encourage our body-mind to open slowly, stay with sensation, and release patterns of limitation.
5:00 Yoga Nidra w/ Audrey Dohm
Yoga Nidra: Using guided visualizations and deep relaxation techniques, Yoga Nidra is designed to guide practitioners past the conditioned mind into a bliss-state of self-awareness and deep calm. This practice is intended to restore body, mind and spirit!
5:20 Afternoon Tea Ceremony and Treats w/Gypsy Vibes
During the tea ceremony you will use all of your senses to savor the gorgeous teas selected and connect deeper with others in the group through the process.
Tea and Food Menu:
Organic Teas and Food will be provided before the dance.
