Full Moon Ceremony

Mindful May
Getting Grounded for Summer

Join Heidi and Kira in-person or online for May's Full Moon Ceremony.

This month we will focus on cultivating Mindfulness as we get ready to embark on Summer Adventures.

This gentle class is designed to nurture your inner awareness with a focus of Mindfully moving through Summer without a sense of burnout.

Mindfulness is awareness of the present moment without judgement. Learn how to be aware moment to moment as we learn to appreciate where we are now rather than living in the future or past.

Via Zoom and in-person, we will create a sacred space and lead you through Yoga, Chanting, Pranayama and Guided Journaling exercises. We will sit for some of class, take a longer time to move our body through Yoga and take time for deep laying down guided relaxation at the end of class.

Kira and Heidi will be your guides as we open up to the Full Moon energy to help your awareness of the present moment in body, mind and spirit.

This will be a fun, safe way to share virtual space with a beautiful community.

No experience needed. Recording available.

I'm a holistic life coach and I help women get unstuck so they can feel confident and excited about their life again.

I use a mind-body-spirit approach that gets to the root of stuckness. My clients learn how to overcome self-doubt, overwhelm and anxiety and how to create empowerment for themselves.

I'm a certified life coach from The Life Coach School, an Ayurvedic Health Counselor and a yoga teacher. I love backcountry skiing in the mountains of Alaska (my home) and dabbling in creative activities of all kinds.

I've been studying, practicing and teaching Yoga since certifying as a teacher at the Kutir Ashram in the Himalayas in 2004. I now teach online virtual group Yoga classes and Sanskrit chanting classes weekly, as well as specialty workshops on Pranayama and Sanskrit.  I also design yoga classes for companies and individuals, which I tailor to your needs.

I have studied and practiced Sanskrit for many years and bring it in as a special focus to my classes. I believe in community, service, connection, and embodiment as a way of working though the many aspects of a Yoga practice.  I love applying the principles of Ayurveda and Sanskrit chanting to my teachings, as well.

Honoring Yoga's Roots

We practice and teach Yoga from a traditional background that honors Yoga’s Roots in India.  The teachings we share come from lineage that goes back for generations and originates in India in the Indus Valley.  For thousands of years Yoga was a reflection of practices that included Meditation, Prāṇāyāma (breath work), Chanting (Mantra), a system of Ethics and more.  Only with in the last 1000 years do we see mention of Āsana (physical Yoga) as a path of Yoga mentioned.  

In our practice we teach from a perspective of offering the full spectrum of what Yoga traditionally is.  We also interweave modern innovations in Yoga like trauma informed Yoga, Poly Vagal Theory, and Accessible Yoga. 

We feel it is important to honor Yoga’s roots in India and do our best to teach Yoga in a way that respects this ancient knowledge.  Quieting the mind to find a sense of inner peace is at the core of what Yoga provides for us. 

We look forward to sharing this journey with you and exploring the depths of what Yoga is and how it can help us thrive in our now.  We offer gratitude to the traditional and indigenous practitioners of the Yogic lineage that have come before us.
