Astrology for Yogis

  • Daya Yoga Studio 360 Jefferson Street Brooklyn, NY, 11237 United States (map)

Astrology is an ancient and vast science that acts as a modern day GPS for navigating our lives and relationships. Oftentimes when we sit down to study our charts the information remains at the intellectual level of our beings. As yogis and seekers its imperative to move these intellectual practices into our bodies and daily lives as a living meditation. Astrology for Yogis explores how to create a practical daily practice that is simple enough to do everyday of the week!

In this three hour workshop we will explore how to identify the major planets in our personal chart and how to develop a daily practice of tuning in to their meaning, frequency and teachings. We will also explore the ways in which a yoga asana practice can help to balance, heal and harmonize the energies of the planets within the various cycles of our lives.

Our first class will cover the Sun and Moon.

What to Expect:
-Discussion of the planets, signs and houses of astrology.
-Practices to invoke the energy of the planet including meditation, mantras and mudras.
-Discussion and practice of yoga postures and sequences to further align with the energies of the day.

Please bring a journal and colored pencils or pens.
All levels of yoga practitioner and astrology enthusiasts are welcome!
