This is Half Moon’s 7th year hosting an annual Restorative Yoga practice with Healing Touch, a combination of nurturing adjustments & massage techniques. Human touch has been shown to be scientifically vital to human development and health. Robbie always has another assistant helping during this time to allow everyone to be touched in every single pose. The added touch is not only a bonus but it allows for deep relaxation as tension melts away from the mind/body. This is a very popular workshop that always sells out so please sign up early to reserve your spot! Please be aware that we add on an extra $5 for this workshop since it is so physical for the teachers.

Part 2 of Basic Yoga Philosophy: Using Body, Breath, & Meditation for Self Transformation

Part 2 of Basic Yoga Philosophy: Using Body, Breath, & Meditation for Self Transformation

Sunday 2/18/18
3:00-5:00pm
WITH Robbie Short $30
Book Now

 

This will be the second part of our Basic Yoga Philosophy series regarding the 8-limbed path of yoga. In the first series, we focused on the Ethics or Moral Code for Conduct. In this series, we will discuss at length how one can use 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.

The Magic of Mantra & Movement

The Magic of Mantra & Movement

Sunday 2/25/18
3:00-5:00pm
WITH Robbie Short $30
Book Now

Robbie introduced you to the magical influence of mantra & movement and you asked for another but this time we will work with a different mantra. This time it will be Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya.

Yoga should be mindful motion or what we like to call contemplative, compassionate action. A mantra is a tool of particular words or phrases that can help one conquer a restless mind. Mantras can be used for focused meditation and have been used for therapeutic benefits and healing. Thoughts and words are based in energy so repeating mantras can transmute energy and help us transcend emotions as well as the senses that want to keep us entangled in our affairs within the world. In this workshop we will work with up to 2 mantras and use them both within our guided movement of postures as well as utilize within formal meditation. This combination will give you the experience of the magic of mantra & movement! Robbie has begun this new series that will be offered every 2-3 months with the next one happening 2/4/18 and each one will focus on new mantras.

Our Annual Restorative + Reiki is every March and this blend offers rejuvenation as we enter into the Springtime. 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.
