WITH HOLLY GARCIA $30
Several times a year we offer a beginner’s yoga workshop. We understand from a beginner’s mind that yoga can be intimidating. After all, you only have an idea or perception about what yoga is and it can be a bit confusing looking at the schedule and seeing all these different names and you are unsure how to navigate considering some are written literally in the Sanskrit language. You are also trying something brand new which can be exciting to some degree but also a little frightful if you are stepping beyond your comfort zone and not sure how your body is going to respond. This is exactly why we offer these workshops! Holly will teach you some fundamental postures as well as what to expect in various styles. She will also cover the importance of the breath and how one should breathe as well as operate their body mechanics according to the breath! Let Holly put you at ease if you are new or if you just feel like you need to relearn the basics. She can also answer any questions you have and after seeing your practice, gear you towards the right class for you and your level of ability! Holly will offer another one of these March 26th called Spring into Action.
WITH ROBBIE SHORT & Friends $35
Every March and July, our restorative yoga workshop adds in healing energy work called Reiki. Several practitioners are called in to help assist so that everyone receives at least 20 minutes of this healing art. Usually the regular Reiki sessions cost $75 but here you receive an abbreviated session along with a gentle stress relieving yoga practice for half the cost. The practitioners will share anything they experienced whether it was a feeling, an intuitive message, colors, or visions with you at the end. It’s an Omazing workshop for a heavily discounted price and sets you up for a beautiful arrival into Spring!
WITH ROBBIE SHORT $30
Robbie is bringing back a once popular workshop this Spring. We will meet at Serenity Salt Cave in Nolensville that is not far from Franklin. Robbie rents out the space specifically for Half Moon and she will guide you through Yoga Nidra, the fine art of relaxation or guided savasana! The man made cave has Himalayan salt that holds 84 trace elements. You will lounge in anti-gravity chairs and allow the salt to soak in your skin and breathe it into your lungs for purification. Spring is the perfect time to go if you suffer from allergies. Yoga Nidra drops our brainwaves down giving the body an opportunity to rest easy which allows for deep healing at many layers. Feel free to arrive early or stay afterwards to treat yourself to a ion footbath to help detox but that is an extra cost and requires a reservation with them.
WITH ANN COFFEY & ROBBIE SHORT $30 prepaid or $35 day of event
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!
WITH ROBBIE SHORT & MASSOOD TAJ $30
Robbie will lead a YIn/Yang yoga practice that is a blend of both active and passive poses while Massood provides Live Sound Therapy with various indigenous instruments. Having live music creates a certain ambiance that we love but rarely receive in the studio so it is truly a special treat and worth attending!
