30.09: AUTUMN EQUINOX celebration & yoga
Join Tonje for 2h of yoga + ceremony in celebration of the Mabon and Autumn Equinox Friday, September 30th, at 6.00 PM. With the Sun's transit into Libra and the passing of the Autumnal Equinox here in the Northern Hemisphere, we officially step into the darker, more introspective half of the year. Marking the midpoint between Litha, the summer solstice, and Yule, the winter solstice, the Equinox is considered a time of harvest and gratitude, as well as a time to prepare for the dark winter ahead. As plants and trees wither and die, their attention goes to their roots, and the healing, nourishing energy of the earth, and as such, this is a time for us to do the same: to slow down and tend to our own roots. Through the hour we will be channeling the balancing qualities of the Equinox Season, we will give our gratitude and thanks to Mother Earth, and we will tune into our own needs, making a commitment to nourish our own roots through the winter. Our movement will be introspective, slow and deep. We will dive inwards through yin poses, meditation, mantra, mudra and breathwork. Through journaling and divination we will reflect on the past, give our thanks, and uproot anything that doesn't serve us, finding back to our inner equilibrium and help us mentally prepare for the dark season ahead.
