Clara Roberts-Oss, international yoga teacher extraordinaire, is coming to Yoga Flame for an entire weekend of masterclasses!
Clara has been studying under and assisting Shiva Rea. For Clara Roberts-Oss, movement is the ultimate form of communication with the Divine. She believes the body yearns to move like water and when it does, it hums with excitement.
/// Yoga Alchemy ///
Saturday 22nd of September | 14:00-16:30
It is said the first yogis were alchemists, those interested in changing metals into gold. They began to experiment with different kriyas (purification exercises) to shift their own alchemy. Using different pranayama (breathing exercises), mantra and asana, they began to feel their own bodies and minds transforming. Join Clara Roberts Oss for a vinyasa sadhana (practice) geared towards to changing our own alchemy through some of these ancient as well as more recent practices.
/// Lunar Nectar ///
Sunday 23rd of September | 14:00-16:30
You have heard of surya namaskars, sun salutations, a sequence of poses generally done at the beginning of an ashtanga or vinyasa practice to heat the body. Did you know there is a sister practice to the sun salutations known as the Chandra/moon namaskars?
The chandra namaskars are meant to calm the nervous system and help create more soma, nectar, in the body. We will begin this slow vinyasa practice with a pranayama practice to help ground, moving into the moon salutes created by Shiva Rea.
The rest of the this juicy practice will focus on creating an introspective bhav/mood. We will end with a meditation for integration. This class is the perfect cultivation of the moon’s soothing lunar energy. All levels welcome.
