Robbie has joined with a new salt cave called Salt and Soles in Nashville, TN to offer a Yoga Nidra experience while you lounge and breathe in the 84 trace elements that the Himalayan Salt can offer. This salt can help one to destress, boost immunity, and fight allergies to name a few. You will recline in anti-gravity chairs while Robbie offers a full scan of the body to help you relax. She will then take you through some guided imagery to take you on this inward journey that is sure to be the best mental vacation you could offer yourself in a local setting. Salt and Soles is also next to Kundalini Rising just around the corner  of Wedgewood and 12 Ave south in Nashville. Please contact them directly to register for this special event*

Basic Yoga Philosophy: Using Body, Breath, Yoga’s Ethical Code & Meditation for Self Transformation

Yoga is considered a mind/body practice yet so many Americans tend to look at yoga as being just exercise for physical fitness. After attending some classes, you may pick up on more whether it’s overt or through certain philosophical or spiritual undertones. Robbie wants to guide you in a 2 part series regarding basic yogic philosophy so you have a greater understanding that the practice extends on & off the mat, something to practice inside & out, towards oneself and others.

She will teach the 8-Limbed path called Ashtanga, not to be confused by the actual style. In this workshop, we will go over in detail both the Yamas and the Niyamas. They are written like a moral ethical code of conduct. The yamas considered the first step on this 8-limbed path tells us what to restrain from concerning our behaviors and interactions with others while the niyamas, the 2nd step, tell us what to do or observe for ourselves.

In the 2nd half of this workshop, Robbie will share steps 3-8 on the 8-limbed path but the first half is considered the foundation on which to ‘live your yoga’. This is a fascinating subject and it’s good to be introduced if you are new to yoga or something great to revisit if you are an avid practitioner. There is always something to learn and be contemplative about through these studies as we are ever evolving beings!

In this series, we will discuss at length how one can use the moral ethical code plus the body, breath, and meditation for self transformation. Some believe we must learn to practice and master the first 2 limbs before we move into the 3-8th limbs but others believe one can begin working with the body, breath, and meditation before the first 2 are established. In yoga’s history,the ethics had to be mastered first but in modern time we often see people naturally aligning with the ethics once they are established in a disciplined practice of yoga & meditation. Either way, this basic philosophy is important to know and understand.

Be prepared for both lecture and movement as well as sitting in formal meditation.

Ann Coffey & Robbie Short were at one time the only teachers at Half Moon Yoga and are happy to reunite to bring you a beautiful  blend of healing practices! Ann now works at an acupuncturist office in Green Hills and is now qualified to administer acudetox. In fact, they are the pioneers to this Middle Tennessee area to offer such a dose of goodness! This idea has recently spread to other local studios because of it’s potency:) Ann administers the acupuncture through the ears after Robbie leads some Yin Yoga that opens up the meridians or energetic channels according to chinese medicine. This is also what the needles supply and while you are lounging with the needles, Robbie leads you into Yoga Nidra, the fine art of relaxation. Yoga Nidra alone has been shown scientifically to alter the brain waves as if you were in your deepest realm of sleep. This realm offers the mind/body/spirit an opportunity to heal at multiple levels. AcuDetox is primarily used for helping one to detox whether it’s addictions or just stress. Limited to 12 participants so sign up early!

Our Semi-Annual Restorative + Reiki is every March and July! This blend offers rejuvenation as we enter into the Springtime and offers Solace in the mid of the Summer. Reiki is an amazing energy healing technique that stems originally from Japan. The use of symbols, mantras, and prayer are used before and during the session. The practitioners will work at least 20 minutes on each individual so you get some undivided attention. Hands are lightly placed over specific areas of the body, unless you obstruct us to go towards a troublesome area for you. The practitioners also freely share their experience and any intuitive messages or images they received at the end of the workshop if you want to stick around for feedback. This restorative practice will be less guided with verbiage once you are holding the pose due to silence being respected for the energy light workers.
