DISCOVER YOUR LUNAR 'BHAVANA'
In the Tantric Hatha Yoga system, we consciously cultivate two aspects: the solar side - dynamic, activating, heating, and invigorating; and the lunar side - restorative, regenerative, cooling, and healing.
Much of modern yoga reflects the solar aspect of being which in a way, is evident in the life of moderns humans, with so much focus on 'doing' and so little focus on 'being'. Cultivating lunar 'bhavana', or 'feeling state' allows a subtle shift towards being more inwardly attentive, and the practices move towards being more nourishing and healing for the body and mind.
If you enjoy a 'Yin-style' practice, you'll appreciate the subtlety of the Lunar Arts of yoga. However, where a typical Yin yoga class may be very still and static, a Lunar Flow will explore rhythmic, pulsation-type movements that regenerate the tissues of your body, revive the flow of prana through the energy pathways, and elicit states of deep peace and inner harmony.
These Lunar practices are adaptable, and can be suitable for anyone needing to follow or more nourishing rhythm in their yoga practice and life, anyone healing from chronic stress-related illness, pregnant goddesses looking to nurture themselves through the trimesters of their pregnancy.
