A gentle but deep session when we can release emotions that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice, so de-stressing and allowing us the strength to move forward. We start with the Sun (Ha) in fiery Leo which rules the heart where it's important to learn to receive as well as give love for our health. The Sun then moves into Virgo, focusing on the way stress affects us in our body, the fight or flight response and how our breathing can help this. The Moon (Tha) starts off in earthy Capricorn. We can feel our emotions here, and either bend too easily or can't bend to others. The Moon then moves into airy Aquarius, to prepare for the full moon as it's opposite Leo, ruling the circulatory system, pumping the blood (or love) from the heart around the body (or the world). The Moon finishes in watery Pisces. We can feel quite ungrounded at this time, so it's important to focus on the feet, keeping them firmly on the ground.
A gentle, relaxing class to heal and soothe, so releasing stress and boosting the immune system. The Sun (Ha) is in fiery Leo, whose ruling 'planet' is the Sun. Leo also rules the upper back, the area behind the heart where we can hide heart stuff. The Moon (Tha) starts off in airy Libra which is about balancing our energy. The Moon then moves into Scorpio, shining a light on hidden areas to bring out emotions and so transform. The Moon finishes in Sagittarius, giving us structure and power to move forward.

Recorded on the Aquarius full moon but going out for the Sun (Ha) in Leo and the Moon (Tha) in Pisces/Aries. In unsettled times, a whole practice that includes Yoga Nidra can really help to re-calibrate, to tune into ourselves to find out which direction is the right one for us. Yoga is the union of mind, body and spirit and so Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, helps us to connect with our spirit and reprogram the subconscious mind.
