Many thanks to Connie for her great workshop!
Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Workshop:
On Feb. 8th, Jodie Kallas of JS Goodness Gifts led a very intriguing workshop on aromatherapy & essential oils. Jodie gave us background on the precision needed to blend oils. It was very interesting to learn how plants can have different scents depending on where they are grown. All participants sampled beautiful oils, learned their healing properties & received a free sample to take home. Many thanks to Jodie for this very fun workshop! Jodie has created new, beautiful gift boxes, such as “Headache Zapper”, “Get Happy” & “Sweet Dreams”, which contain her lovely blended oils, handmade soap & hand-blended organic teas. These beautiful boxes can be purchased at Moonflower Yoga.
Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing (2014):
Many thanks to Laura Lipari for another fabulous workshop! Laura explained the principles of Ayurveda, an ancient self-healing practice that has been successfully utilized for thousands of years. All the participants took a test to determine their “dosha” type, which is your natural-born constitution. Once you knew your primary dosha, Laura explained which foods and lifestyles best matched each “dosha”. All participants received informative materials for reference after the workshop. It was a great evening!
Goal Setting and Vision Board Workshop:
It was an inspirational January afternoon for the participants in our weekend Goal Setting and Vision Board workshop – a perfect way to start the new year! Nancy provided the group with proven guidelines to map out how to accomplish their goals. From there, we had a fun arts and crafts event as the participants created their personal vision board, a fabulous motivational tool. A special thank you to Chris Senetto for helping to make the workshop a success!
Meditation and Chanting Workshop:
On Friday night, October 11th, Diane Monks led a very relaxing meditation and chanting workshop at Moonflower Yoga. Meditation is a wonderful tool to help release stress and bring you inner peace. Chanting in unison as a group made this meditation session even more powerful. We are pleased that Diane will now be offering meditation on a regular basis at Moonflower Yoga beginning in late October. Meditation will alternate with Candlelight Restorative on Tuesday nights at 7:45 PM. Come and discover how meditation can help you!
Learning to Read Tarot Cards (Parts 1, 2, and 3):
We had three great evenings, one in October, one in November, and one in January as we learned all about Tarot Cards. It was wonderful to have Connie return to Moonflower Yoga with another very fun event. Connie gave us a history on the Tarot and taught us how to read the Tarot cards. The participants then did their own readings, which were very insightful. Many thanks to Connie for another amazing workshop! If you are interested in reading Tarot Cards, please let us know, as we will likely revisit this workshop with Tarot Cards, Part 1. You’ll love it!
Healthier You - Plant-Based Diet workshop:

Laura gave us some wonderful information and we were all treated to some delicious recipes. A big thank you to Laura for her fabulous workshop!
It was an interesting evening at our crystals workshop hosted by Constance Barley on June 14th.

Film screening of “LEAP OF FAITH”:
On Friday, March 22nd, Moonflower Yoga hosted a screening of the film “LEAP OF FAITH’ based on the amazing life of Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar. The film spanned the 90 years and 70 years of teachings of B.K.S. Iyengar’s fascinating life from a sickly child on the verge of death to one of the modern fathers of yoga. The film is a saga of courage and faith, of chance meetings on chosen paths and of perseverance in the face of insurmountable hurdles. B.K.S. Iyengar is 93 years old and still practices yoga every day! Proceeds from the screening were donated to the Iyengar Yoga Association of Greater New York’s Brooklyn Initiative to build an Iyengar Institute in Brooklyn.

Many thanks, Connie, for a great evening at Moonflower Yoga!
