Full Moon Essential Oil Yoga & Bodywork

Join others to harness the potential of the full moon!
We will gather together and hear briefly about the messages pertaining to each moon, including why Crystal chooses a particular essential oil. The oil is chosen to support you through each full moon's energies!

Krystal will lead you through a Yin Yoga flow to harness the moon for that month, and support your body. The chosen essential oil will be diffused in the room during the yoga flow.

Throughout the yoga session, Crystal will come around to each person and utilize body/energy work pertaining to the astrological sign which the moon is currently in.

We will close with open connecting or conversation to bring a sister/brotherhood to the entire experience.

This is for those who
- want to stay connected to lunar rhythms.
- want to connect with others during full moon 'chaos'
- enjoy yin yoga
- want to experience yoga with the powers of aromatherapy and body or energy work

In~CHANTment: An Equinox Gathering

Rest into nourishing restorative yoga poses while being led into in~CHANTment with the vocals of Mantha Myhre. Thoughtfully prepared chants of Sanskrit and Hawaiian origin come together to deepen the experience of mind, body & spirit connection (the meaning of each chant will be shared as we go). Poses will be deeply relaxing and fully supportive while meditation throughout the practice will focus on our journey from darkness to light. Yoga is led by Krystal Sarki of Red Water Roots.

The Spring Equinox is the day that daylight starts to increase and the earth is about to tip over to more LIGHT - like an illuminating, sublime reminder that light is returning to earth and always does.

Because the length of day and night is equal, this time represents our own need for balance of the yin/yang and male/female energies. Balanced equilibrium as the ideal state for our lives.

It is a time of renewal, new beginnings and growth blooming -gloriously and unabashedly, in a renewed sense of energy brought to help you focus and move forward in new, fresh, and positive ways.

(Paraphrased from www.nataliakuna.com)

Island of Refuge Yoga

July is eclipse season & a total of seven celestial bodies are in retrograde most of the month....

Even if you're not into astrology ~~

Perhaps your body, mind or spirit is calling you to slow down, reflect and unfurl in a safe place.

Yoga is a mix of gentle, yin and restorative. Each class will contain different messages but above all will cherish a space for reflections and expression of your authentic self. Suitable for beginners - still valuable for advanced students.

Mothers' Blessing

Honor your journey into motherhood through an empowering ceremony that aims to release fear, connect with your baby, feel into the sacredness of motherhood and celebrate your rite of passage. Surrounded by women who are on that same journey (most mothers choose to join in their 2nd or 3rd trimesters but all are welcome) mother blessings strive to create a safe space to unwind, be nourished, and remind ourselves of the brilliance of our connection to each other, the earth and the community. Together we bring intention and awareness into this transition in our lives.

Each ceremony is a little different as I take into account the dynamics of the group. It can be a mixture of gentle yoga, meditation, breath work, art, journaling, circle ceremony, self-care, dance and music. At times, participants may choose to give voice to some of their feelings or thoughts though there is never any pressure or requirement to do so.

Please dress comfortably & arrive with an open mind. This event is donation-based with 80% of the proceeds going to Changing Woman Initiative & 20% goes to fund the supplies and rental space for the event. Changing Woman Initiative's mission is to renew cultural birth knowledge to empower and reclaim indigenous sovereignty of women's medicine and life way teachings to promote reproductive wellness and healing through holistic approaches.

Women must register before the event as there is limited space. I ask that you message me through FB or email me at krystalsarki@gmail.com to let me know you are coming along with your expected due date and anything you'd like me to know or any questions you have.

Special note: A mother blessing is NOT a Blessingway. A Blessingway is a Diné Navajo traditional ceremony that is deeply spiritual. To call what a modern mother blessing looks like now a ‘Blessingway’ is cultural appropriation and is something I strive hard to not be a part of. A women’s online group stated, “In 2004, Native feminists wrote us to request that the term ‘Blessingway’ no longer be used to describe non-Navajo prenatal ceremonies such as the one described in this article. They explained that the term ‘Blessingway’ refers to a sacred spiritual ceremony performed by the Navajo people to celebrate rites of passage that occur throughout the entire life cycle, and not only the passage into motherhood. They suggested the term ‘Mother Blessing’ was a more appropriate term for a ceremony that was influenced, and respectful, of this tradition, but not practiced in accordance with the Navajo faith and culture.”

New Moon Restorative Yoga Experience

An extended restorative yoga experience that pairs with new moon energy. New moons are a powerful time for intention-setting, a dark period in the cycle of the moon that we will use to enhance clarity in our lives. In restorative yoga, your body is completely supported in poses that allows relief and release of tension and stress. This release enables us to become more connected with ourselves and our truth, our desires and dreams.

During the new moon phase, the moon, the sun, and Earth are all on the same longitude line, resulting in the moon’s orbit being invisible from the Earth. However, just because the moon cannot be physically seen at this time does not diminish its power.

Take the time to access the wisdom available in this particular point in lunar cycle. Great for people who want:

A longer, parasympathetic yoga experience
To tune into New Moon energy
Personal instruction in poses

Option for an essential oil blend and light face massage in the extended savasana.

Yoga as Rejuvenating Nectar

"A Rejuvenating Nectar" is a phrase that captivated me while studying the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra. The last word in the mantra, "Maamritat" means please give me rejuvenating nectar, so as to have this liberation, like the process of severing the cucumber from the creeping vine.

I happen to think it describes my particular teaching style well. My Saturday morning classes are typically a mix of gentle, yin & restorative yoga that really aims at accessing the sweetness of life and the enactment of it on our mats. This is beginner friendly but accesses deeper layers that entice more experienced students.

Please join me in this Spring yoga series.
