Awakening Yoga – The Lunar Mobility Practice
I believe in the foundational truth that we are all designed to move. That movement exists in every plane, and thus so must we. Through this complimentary practice, we will utilize an array of principles from movement, somatics, functional mobility, and yoga asana to expand our perceptions of possibility and our capacity for exploration.
The Lunar Mobility Practice includes considerably less weight-bearing shapes and focuses primarily on joint mobility, spatial awareness, and individual range of motion exploration through the lens of a flowing yoga practice.
Be prepared to move, breathe, play, and see what your body is capable of!

Blurring the lines between strength and flexibility as we tap into our strongest mobile center and learn to safely move through a full range of motion with grace and ease.
So often we find ourselves caught up on just one path or swirling the same old circles, with the same old narratives. Use this expansive, expectation shattering practice to break out of old habits and start moving in new directions! Expect to leave class with a new sense of space and a lighthearted mindset.
