Join Wonder Yoga co-owner and certified Yogastrologer® Allison Jones for the last workshop of 2018. This special evening will include a 75 minute Buti Yoga practice designed to free any blockages in the 3rd and 4th chakras (solar plexus and heart center) in order to clear out 2018 and make space for what you want to manifest in the New Year. Buti Yoga is a mix of yoga, cardio, tribal dancing and high intensity interval training. In Buti we move in all planes with linear and circular motion designed to awaken all of the chakras and connect both to earth and sky.
This workshop coincides with the last full moon of 2018 – in the zodiac sign of Cancer which rules the breasts and stomach– exact at 12:48pm EST on December 22nd. This is one day after the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s entrance into Capricorn. The Winter Solstice represents a returning of the light as the days will start to grow longer. Celebrate the increasing light and coming New Year with a cacao ceremony and meditation.
Cacao is a powerful heart opener. It was first used as a health elixir as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America and then later used as ritualistic medicine by Aztec and Mayan cultures. The science behind cacao from Guinevere Short – creator of Heartbeatscacao.com:
“One of the main active ingredients that we experience in our physiology during ceremony is Theobromine. Theo-broma literally translates as God-Food, and potentiates the release of dopamine, the ‘pleasure’ hormone. This, alongside phenethylamine, which is known to help relieve stress and depression and which is released in the body during emotional euphoria, create heightened sensation and empathy. Alongside these, the high amount of nutrients in the cacao support and nourish the body, whilst also inducing a detoxifying effect on the liver and kidneys.”
We’ll sip raw cacao in circle, partake in a heart-opening meditation and have an opportunity to choose a theme for 2019.
