We’ve all stopped in our tracks at one time in our lives to gaze in awe at the beauty of our moon. Maybe, you were struck by the enormity of a perfectly round, red harvest moon, or by a delicate crescent moon hanging above you on a clear, starry night. I have been fascinated with the moon since I was a little girl, finding comfort in it’s presence whether I could see it or not. Knowing the moon is there, watching over me, still brings me peace. Knowing that we all look to the same moon reminds me how connected we really are. So, it was fitting to call my yoga, Luna Presence Yoga.
Yoga is defined as the union of mind, body and spirit, the union of the individual self with the universal self. Yoga is the journey of recognizing where you are, and then, exploring the beautiful road to self-discovery and awareness that leads you to your true self. It’s about the feeling you have when you walk into your first yoga class, unsure and a bit intimidated, wondering what it’s all about, and then suddenly, and unexpectedly, mastering a pose, finding balance and feeling trapped energy finally move through your body. It’s about, the feeling of surrendering to the here and now, being present and simply BEING! It’s invigorating! We are all one. There is no one you need to impress, it’s simply about being alive and being connected!
My classes meet you where you’re at, whether you are a beginner, advanced or nursing an injury, you can enjoy my class. I encourage students to listen to their bodies in order to become aware of their own strength and flexibility. It’s from this awareness that the student can begin to deepen the postures and explore new ways to challenge themselves. I feel it’s important to begin each class with centering and meditation and to end each class in relaxation and visualization. It’s vital to provide students the time to transition from their day to their yoga practice in order to give them the opportunity to be fully present. Ending the class in relaxation gives the body a chance to enjoy the benefits of the practice so they can take the feeling off the mat and into their lives.
I look forward to meeting you!Namaste,
