beginner basicsStart your week in a positive way!  For the summer, Lucia is teaching this fabulous new class.  Beginner Basics is perfect for those looking to work on fundamental yoga postures.  The class will encompass standing and seated postures, and will help you gain strength, flexibility and balance.  Props are used to help you as you learn the poses.

Yin  Yoga with Dona (Wednesday mornings at 10:30 AM, plus Tuesday, August 18th, at 10:45 AM):

Yin Yoga is a more meditative yoga style.  The term “yin yoga” comes from the Taoist tradition. Yin is about finding stillness and cooling the body, where as Yang relates to movement, often repetitive movement, creating heat in the body.  There is not a great need for a lot of postures in the Yin Yoga practice.  Emphasis is placed on a few basic postures which are held for longer periods of time. In Yin Practice, there is a more conscientious attention to breath and the sensations in the body.  Slow, simple yin yoga is the class to choose if you want to calm the mind, stretch the body, and promote flexibility.  The yin practice is a great compliment to a yang practice or active lifestyle.  We need both to come into balance and maintain optimum health and wellness.

REIKI LEVEL ONE TRAINING

with the Rev. Constance Barley

Saturday, October 10th, 1 PM – 5 PM

 

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the concept that life force energy flows through us. If this energy is low, then we are more likely to feel ill and have higher stress levels. If it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

In this special 4-hour training session, you will learn the basics of Reiki and receive a Level One certification from Connie. The ability to perform Reiki is passed on during an “attunement” given by Connie, a Reiki master, and allows the student to tap into life force energy to improve one’s health. At the end of this training, you will be able to do basic Reiki on yourself and others.

There will be a break around midway through the training with delicious homemade snacks.

Price: $100 per person for this 4-hour training

 Book now!!   Seating is limited!!   You can reserve your spot at the Moonflower Yoga studio or by selecting this workshop from the class schedule tab above and following the simple registration steps to reserve your spot.

Each month, we offer class packages at a discounted class price.   The class packages vary from month to month.   We list the monthly package offer on this page and we also distribute a monthly email announcing the special for the following month.   The class packages can be purchased at the Moonflower Yoga studio, and are valid for the month of the package, i.e. the October package is valid for all classes on the October schedule.  If you have any questions regarding this, just give us a call at (516) 557 2206 or stop by the Moonflower Yoga studio and we will be happy to help you.

Moonflower Yoga also offers fun and varied workshops and events where you can learn something new.   Some of our past happenings  have included feng shui, meditation, women’s health issues, astrology, how to deal with neck/shoulder pain, ways to move towards a healthier diet, and tarot cards.   Workshop and events prices vary depending on the workshop or event. You can also purchase your workshop or event online by clicking on the class schedule tab above and completing the simple registration steps.

And check out our fun Moonflower Yoga Book Club!   It is a great way to meet new people and have lively conversation while enjoying some delicious homemade treats.   The Moonflower Yoga Book Club meets every 4- 6 weeks.   We generally meet on a Sunday afternoon, except for the summer months we will be meeting on a Friday evening.   You are welcome to read the book we have selected and join us.   If you haven’t read the book, you can still join us and help us decide what the next book selection should be.  Further details can be found by clicking on the Events tab above.
