Lunation Kundalini Shakti Transmission :: VISION :: Leo New Moon Total Solar Eclipse

Eclipses are a potent time to step up our Spiritual practices. Eclipses always occur when the New Moon or Full Moon is in close proximity to one of the two Lunar Nodes.

The North Node of the Moon is in Leo which means there is new beginnings and a push towards this sign even more powerful with the New Moon being in Leo. The South Node is in Aquarius which represents where endings are trying to be facilitated associated with that sign, as well that are getting in the way of fulfilling the North Node in Leo.

Blessed with two Leo New Moons back to back we get to combine these energies during the Great American Eclipse. We have not had such a potent energy sweep across America in 100 years, while most people are looking outward at the Eclipse we know it's the time to go inward and upward during this Cosmic time.

Mercury also stationed Retrograde in Virgo until September 5th gives us another cue to SLOW it down and step inside, confirming it's a good time to be Heavily Meditated.

What change needs to be made with courage and less fear?

What is our VISION for the next 6 months?

What fuels the flame of our heart?

During this potent alignment and blessing of another Leo New Moon we will take our courage to new heights.

Join Abhaijot Kaur, KRI during this Lunation where we will combine Kundalini Shakti, breath work to cleanse our space, learn a mediation to hold our frequency and the option to carry it for 40 days (40 days breaks any negativity) followed by creating our VISIONS of the next 6 months through vision boards intention.

Nadishana, a Siberian master musician who plays over 200 instruments, will be performing a number of eclectic and exotic instruments.

This is an opportunity to experience one of the most transcendental musicians on Earth-don't miss it!

Ayurveda Lunar Sequencing Immersion

Ayurveda Lunar Sequencing Immersion

Oct 8, 10:00am - Oct 29, 6:00pm

Sacred Arts Research Foundation
107 Green St
Brooklyn, NY  11222 Map

Ayurveda Lunar Sequencing
An Investigation into Seasonal Yoga Sequencing and the Art of Teaching Yoga.

Out of the belief that our bodies require a variety of nourishing practices for the different phases in our lives, this immersion into Ayurveda Lunar Sequencing will illustrate how to build a practice that honors and integrates;

The Seasonal Shifts
(Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter)

The Monthly Lunar Cycle
(New Moon and Full Moon)

and
The Daily Rhythms
(Morning, Daytime, Evening).

Drawing upon the ancient systems of Yoga, Astrology, Shamanism and Ayurveda, this study will inspire you to rethink how you plan your public and private yoga classes as well as how to create a more sustainable and consistent home practice that syncs to your body’s natural rhythm.


While many yoga practices require the exact same poses for years on end, this immersion challenges the yogi to accept that our bodies are continually changing, as is our environment, as is our needs.

This lunar sequencing style casts light on our natural internal rhythms in relationship to the ever-changing world around us.




WHO THIS COURSE IS FOR

Ayurveda Lunar Sequencing is best for those who have completed a 200-hour teacher training course. However, for the devoted practitioner this course can be made available without previous experience of training.

If you have completed a 200-hour teacher-training course and feel that you aren’t quite ready to take the reins of teaching, this immersion will help you to joyfully find your confidence! This study is also a great way to inspire your teaching if you have fallen into a rut and are seeking to get out.







WHAT TO EXPECT
Sequences taught in the traditions of Hatha - Vinyasa Yoga.
Group Practice
Ayurveda Philosophy
Reading and Discussion
Sequencing Theory
Astrology and Yoga
Practice Teaching

MEET YOUR GUIDE

Namaste, I'm Amanda!
I have been teaching yoga for almost 15 years, training teachers to teach from the heart of their truth and helping everyday people design habits and practices to enhance the well being of their lives.

I have developed this unique Ayurveda Lunar Sequencing style from witnessing first hand that our bodies, hearts and minds need much more than the same type of yoga practice every single day. Having allowed my day to day practices to shift I have felt more empowered in my self expression and direction in life. I wish this for everyone!

My asana styles include Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra. I am a lover of yoga philosophy, pranayama, kriyas, mantra, and meditation. I am a devoted student of the sacred path, ever exploring and forever evolving.

I have traveled with my work to India, Indonesia, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico and throughout the United States. I have studied under Laughing Lotus Founders Dana Flynn and Jasmine Tarkeshi, Thomas Ashley-Farrand, Swami Brahmananda Saraswati of the Shankaracharya lineage and am a dedicated disciple of recognized Taino Elder and Ceremonial Leader Maestro Manuel Rufino.

I currently live within my spiritual community of BK,NY where I study sacred practices, traditions and healing techniques from a myriad of lineages by way of my spiritual teacher, Maestro Manuel Rufino. From his teachings I have learned to carry an intertribal altar, celebrating the teachings of all sacred traditions who’s aim is to heal and awaken humanity.


My lifestyle is incredibly unique and I am fortunate to be where I am. My hope is that in sharing my experience and offering the tools I have discovered for sacred living, my efforts will ultimately help people to rise to a higher vibration of love and compassion.
