Full Moon Shakti Flow, Circle & Sound Bath

Vinyasa aligned with the Full Moon Capricorn… realigning our priorities in life

INSTRUCTOR: Dana Damara

DATE: Friday, July 7th

TIME: 6:30 – 8:30pm

COST: $33 in advance, $44 at the door

COST for participants of RUN She is Beautiful: $27 (must have proof of 2017 registration)

Join Dana Damara for her well known Full Moon Shakti Flows in Santa Cruz! 
A dynamic Moon flow aligned with the cycle and placement of the Moon, intention setting for deep manifesting and releasing power, essential oils, sound bath, and community circle. Come explore the Full Moon via yoga, ritual, and community as we gather together to release what no longer serves and embrace the manifesting power and potential of a new seed planted and intentions witnessed.

Shakti is the dynamic quality that is pumping the blood through our veins, flowing the breath through our lungs, and connecting us energetically to others. It’s the energy that creates everything. She IS the Moon – the Moon IS the Feminine. Understanding her rhythms and cycles and how they relate to you, is imperative in evolving and aligning with your soul’s calling. BEING IN CIRCLE breaks open the heart and when communities gather, relaxing into the power of Shakti, it creates the potential for miracles to manifest. How this circle will unfold is unknown, it is divine and you will be a part of it. Bring a yoga mat, a notebook, writing utensil and anything to place into the fire puja.
