La Luna Social @ Jasper Wellness
May 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

A New Moon marks the begin­ning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of wax­ing and wan­ing. Dur­ing this time the Moon is emp­ty and recep­tive and full of poten­tial. This is an opti­mum time to plant seeds of inten­tions for what you wish to man­i­fest in your life.

Most of us, live our lives so dis­con­nect­ed from the Earth, and devoid of any kind of rit­u­al that cre­ates the space for us to con­nect. So the New Moon pro­vides us with an oppor­tu­ni­ty to take the time to cre­ate SACRED SPACE for our­selves. It’s essen­tial.

There is some­thing so pow­er­ful when wom­en come togeth­er to sup­port each oth­er on their jour­ney, in the hopes and dreams. We are healed, we are nur­tured, we feel com­fort­ed and under­stood. More­over, when you share sacred space togeth­er you mag­ni­fy the pow­er of your inten­tions and you ener­get­i­cal­ly cre­ate a web of sup­port for not only your cir­cle of wom­en friends but with wom­en every­where.” ~ Mys­tic Mam­ma

La Luna Social, a New Moon offer­ing for wom­en to come togeth­er in sacred cer­e­mony. Each cer­e­mony will explore a dif­fer­ent themes using var­i­ous modal­i­ties like tea medi­a­tion, move­ment, chant­i­ng, jour­nal­ing, crafts and more

MAY 27TH offer­ing will be TEA MEDITATION… inspired by the prac­tice of Cha Doa (way of tea) is a supre­me con­cept in Chi­ne­se phi­los­o­phy, and rough­ly refers to the under­ly­ing essence, prin­ci­ple, or order behind the nat­u­ral world.
This soft prac­tice of silent intro­spec­tive is made sweet­er and more nour­ish­ing when wild-hand craft­ed teas are the door­way in.

Prenatal Yoga, Yoga for Two
May 28 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

Pre­na­tal Yoga, Yoga for Two is a pre­na­tal class focused on birth
prepa­ra­tion.

Pre­na­tal Yoga is the nur­tur­ing activ­i­ty under­tak­en when time is spent (a
lit­tle or a lot) to gen­tly relax, release and attune to your body and your
rapid­ly grow­ing baby with­in. The nat­u­ral, vital and restora­tive energies of
the body and mind are enhanced through gen­tle yoga pos­tures.

When preg­nant, one feels the strains of the ever-changing body. Yoga
coun­ter­bal­ances the grow­ing abdomen and main­tains good pos­ture. Stretch­ing
while strength­en­ing helps to release the pelvic open­ing in prepa­ra­tion for
birth. Ton­ing the pelvic floor allows for a more con­trolled birthing,
lessens com­pli­ca­tions and enhances post­na­tal heal­ing.

Breath work is prac­ticed in prepa­ra­tion for respond­ing to labour by
coor­di­nat­ing with the rhythms of con­trac­tions. Breath­ing aware­ness is
essen­tial for relax­ation, com­fort and con­fi­dence. Just being in your body
that is home for two is yoga. Your preg­nant body is nat­u­ral­ly and
mirac­u­lous­ly in a state of enhanced ener­gy and cre­ativ­i­ty. Tak­ing time to
pause from the stream of day-to-day activ­i­ty to con­nect with your body
enables you to expe­ri­ence and enjoy the­se aug­ment­ed sens­es.

All wom­en expe­ri­ence some fear of labour. A sim­ple foun­da­tion in yoga
pre­pares you to face child­birth with courage. To be relaxed and con­fi­dent
dur­ing labour reduces fear, ten­sion and fatigue. Flex­i­bil­i­ty and calm ease
the birthing process, thus reduc­ing pain and increas­ing the joy of giv­ing
birth.

While prac­tic­ing yoga, your rela­tion­ship with your baby
deepens–physically, men­tal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly. It is a time to be mind­ful
that you are engaged in the cre­ation of new life, and to be atten­tive to
the impact of this major life pas­sage. Tak­ing time in this way allows the
quick­ly pass­ing nine months to be cher­ished.

Each class ends with a dis­cus­sion with top­ics such as, decreas­ing stress­es
in preg­nan­cy, induc­tion (nat­u­ral meth­ods, risks of med­ical induc­tion,
acupunc­ture), birth sup­port peo­ple & more.
