New Moon Intentions and Breathwork

Dates: Sunday, December 05, 2021
Location: NiMaSte Yoga
Online  In-Person

Join us for a 90 minute session to get clear on your intentions for this new moon. We will cleanse our body and minds with an invigorating guided breath work session. We’ll shake loose stagnant energy in the body and prepare ourselves to get clear on what we want to invite into our lives (maybe abundance, peace, or love, to name a few). This will be a time to explore how we can actively co-create our lives with the universe. What are you choosing? How can you embody your intentions that you’re seeking to bring into your life? These are some of the pieces we’ll explore together as a group. 

During the second half of the workshop students will journal and create intention candles. All materials will be provided (candles, images, mod podge). Students are encouraged to bring images that stand out to them that they think they may want to incorporate into their candles. If you are joining the workshop via livestream link and are local to the Kensington area, we will deliver or you can pick up materials at the studio the week prior to the workshop.
