In honor of the second full moon of the month, we move through a range of postures that represent each of the lunar phases. This sequence can be practiced at any time during the moon's journey: new moon, crescent, quarter, half, gibbous, or full; waxing or waning. Need a little more support, maybe because you're new to practice or are nursing an injury? Listen for the cues I give to Judy, who uses a chair for extra support and takes some gentler posture variations. This class features instruction on chandra bhedana, or moon piercing breath, a quieting single-nostril pranayama practice that's nice to do in the evening before bedtime. We start on our backs in supine bound angle pose (supta baddha konasana), with knees bent and soles of feet together. Join us aromatically by diffusing a full moon essential oil blend, if you'd like ... maybe one with Australian sandalwood, rosewood and sweet orange oils.
