FULL MOON EVENT: WEEDING (NOT ANOTHER CBD WORKSHOP)
with MARIAH K LYONS & JULIE HOVSEPIAN
FRIDAY 3/22 7:30pm-9pm at LOVE YOGA VENICE
Join Crystal Healer + ASTARA Founder Mariah Lyons and Energetic Healer Julie Hovsepian for their monthly moon event to celebrate an evening together honoring the Full Worm Moon in Libra and Spring Equinox.
The current energies supported by the full moon and spring equinox bring us into release and rebirth. This month’s focus is about “weeding" what is not needed on our path moving forward, i.e people, projects or thought patterns that send our energies in directions that aren’t necessarily on our highest path for a flourished life.
We will be journeying together to gain higher insight and clarity on those areas of our life that are need of some spring"weeding," so we can best give space and ample energy to new ideas or existing creations to truly take flight.
This event will include a crystal reading, light journaling (so please bring something to write on), a tea ceremony and meditative healings.
All are welcome.
$45 to join - includes a charged crystal.

By gathering in a circle with other women, we can provide support, share & connect with one another, helping to manifest & magnify our intentions out into the Universe. When we come together for this sacred event, so many women all over the world will be doing the same. Expect a meditation, a brief discussion on the astrologic energy of this particular New Moon, journaling, sharing & take home a special gift from Moon Body Soul.

10 HOUR TRAINING
with CHRISTOPHER GOLDEN
SATURDAY & SUNDAY 4/13 + 4/14 12:15-5:15pm at LOVE YOGA EAST
In this 10 hour training we will explore the art of sequencing. We will establish a few key principles based on anatomical and energetic patterns that will function as building blocks as we move through a number of sequencing exercises. We will consider how to sequence for all kinds of public classes and privates, from beginners to advanced, from rhythmic flow classes to more static alignment based. (These are examples of ways you will be able to apply the sequencing principles that we learn. You will be encouraged to make sequences for the way you want to teach).
Each day will start with a led class. There will be individual exercises,* as well as group exercises to help apply the material in real time. Expect to come away with a couple of well formed sequences that you will feel confidant about bending to the needs of the class/individual that you teach. You will have new sequencing tools to work with and refine.
There will be a sprinkle of meditation.
*there will be an optional short assignment for students to do at home following the first day as preparation for the second day.
