Cancer New Moon Meditation

So what's the deal with the New Moon?

When the Moon is new, the Luminaries -- the  Sun and Moon -- are aligned in the same Zodiac sign.  That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of that sign.  

A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention, and a symbolic portal for new beginnings. 

New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you'd like to create, develop, cultivate, & manifest.

So what's the deal with the Full Moon?

When the Moon is new, the Luminaries -- the  Sun and Moon -- are aligned in the opposite Zodiac sign.  That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of those signs.  The time of the full moon is always about striking a climactic balance between yin (masculine energy represented by the sun) and yang (feminine energy represented by the moon). 

The Full Moon marks the peak of a cycle that began at the New Moon. Whether you're aware of it consciously or not. Creating a meditation ritual around these cosmic positions helps us bring these subconscious and sometimes subtle energies to a more conscious level.

At the Full Moon every month, we have the opportunity to start anew, after allowing the intentions set at the New Moon come to full fruition.

" I completed my 200 hour teacher training program through Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute in October of 2015. This training program was like the Yin to my Yang. SomaYoga is gorgeous blend of therapeutic yoga, somatics, and classic postures. I was able to start back at the beginning, slow the heck down, and listen to my body. To learn that it is all about balance in this life, no matter what we are looking at. 

My hope for my students is to find your own self on the mat and to listen to what ever your mind, body, or spirit is telling you. You are smarter than you may even know. I believe that where ever we may find ourselves of this rollercoaster we call life, well that is exactly where we are supposed to be. "

M E E T   G R A C E!

This month's New Moon Meditation will be guided by Grace McCrady! Learn about what kind of magic she will bring to this lunar celebration!

As a former gymnast and black belt in karate, Grace always felt the connection between a strong mind and body. When Grace found yoga in 2003, she immediately fell in love with the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of the practice. Yoga was an organic and intuitive transition from her previous forms of exercise, and also became a form of therapy. She loves to incorporate aspects of her gymnastics and karate background in her classes to create a dynamic and fun environment for her students. She believes there is a ninja yogi in all of us! Leaving her job in corporate mental health, Grace felt there was a way for her to connect with others on a more direct and tangible level. When one of her teachers brought up yoga teacher training to her after class, it was a no-brainer. She enrolled in Teacher Training at Corepower in 2014, and has never looked back. Grace was recently joined as the assistant manager at Corepower Northeast Minneapolis and is thrilled to be a part of the community that introduced her to the person she was always meant to be.

Full Moon Meditation (October/Aries)

MEET KATE!

This month's New Moon Meditation will be guided by Kate Cherne! Learn about what kind of magic she will bring to this lunar celebration!

Kate has been a dedicated yogi for almost ten years. The most fundamental thing she’s learned through this practice is the art of paying attention. By simply noticing everything that is going on within, awareness is able to expand. After observing the internal world for some time, we realize that we are able to influence our life experience by adjusting how we respond to what we encounter moment by moment. Kate is passionate about helping people to see the power they possess in influencing their reality. Through mediation we find peace. By watching the movement of the mind, body and emotions it is inevitable that one day we realize we are not that. We are so much more.

Things have gotten chilly in good ol' MN. So we are headed indoors. We will be gathering at Tula Yoga + Wellness located at 99 Snelling Ave in Saint Paul.

CTG Yoga loves Naked Nina's like we love savasana. If you're unfamiliar, Naked Nina's is the free-spirited kid-sister of Nina's Cafe located in the heart of Cathedral Hill in Saint Paul. Aside from being long-yearned for sanctuary from the hustle of the city, this beautiful Nutirent Bar concots some of the most delicious elixirs you can fathom. Seriously. Whether you're a diehard juice + kombucha fan, or new to the idea of nourishing from the inside out, we are pretty certain after you try what these folks have to offer, you will feel the magic. We are SO excited to have them sharing with us complimentary Kombucha from Prohibition Kombucha. Stick around after the meditation to re-balance and re-charge with some sparkling yumminess!

This month's New Moon Meditation will be sponsored by the lovely souls over at Naked Nina's Nutrient Bar! Complimentary "Prohibition Kombucha" will be served post-meditation!

MEET GRETCHEN + MICHELLE!

This month's Full Moon Meditation will be guided by Gretchen Walch Nord and Michelle Henkel of Wild Hearts Yoga. Learn about what kind of magic they will bring to this lunar celebration!

We are Wild Hearts; wild enough to explore new places while giving you an enriching yogic experience. Wild means practicing Asana, stretching and strengthening our bodies, but wilder still to stretch and strengthen our minds. Wild in nature, wild in song, wild in sound and silence; Wild in our hearts.
— Wild Hearts Yoga

Gretchen Walch Nord, BA in Art Education, MA in Art, co-founder Wild Hearts Yoga

Michelle has been teaching yoga since 2008. Her career began as a dancer in New York and over the last ten years evolved her study of movement and dance to include yoga, personal fitness and Zesa.  Movement isn’t restricted to just on a mat or in a studio – or gym, but a dance and flow from one moment to the next.  In mind, body and spirit. She has led yoga teacher trainings and guided many students to find their path in yoga.  Michelle believes she is as much a teacher as she is a student.  It is unique connections with others she seeks, a voice to the authentic soul and a dance with the wild heart.

Gretchen is a career educator with over 25 years of classroom experience. Gretchen is passionate about education and yoga. She has practiced yoga for over ten years and holds a yoga certification. She currently teaches at St. Therese School in Deephaven, MN. She is married and is the mother of two beautiful, grown daughters. She lives in Minnetrista with her husband Jay and two pugs. Gretchen enjoys all aspects of the practice of yoga; asana, meditation, chant, mindfulness, and breath work, just to name a few. She finds joy, peace, and a deep sense of self-awareness through the yogic path. Connecting to herself and others fills her up, and she cannot wait to share the practice.

WE HEART GAIA

CTG Yoga and The Gaia Collective have paired up to make our Full Moon Celebrations SERIOUSLY STELLAR. 

Who they are: The Gaia Collective is known for creating monthly "moon boxes" that are carefully curated mediations-in-a-box to support your lunar intentions. 

How we are teaming up: The first 10 people to reserve their spot receive a swag bag made especially for this full moon by the sweet souls over at Gaia Collective.

 

ABOUT THE GAIA COLLECTIVE

We are the GAIA Collective, a group of artists who believe in spreading positive intention and universal compassion. 

Each moon cycle, we deliver a MoonBox & host a Moon Event featuring a Full Moon Ritual + Meditation, and embrace the lessons of yoga. Our mission is to optimize the energy of our Moon, her invigorating powers, and align ourselves with her placement in the stars.

We also share & create metaphysical art of all kinds, intended to illuminate the soul and free the spirit. 

We are a coalition of people who want to see Mother Earth, her children, and the Universe blossom and thrive. 

Together we sow widespread seeds of spirituality & creative expression through wearable & raw crystals, art, and holistic alchemy. 

We believe that creativity is a healing force that can be an inspired by connecting yourself with the art of the earth: crystals & nature. 

We choose to: 
ALIGN WITH GAIA
We invite you to join us. 

 

So what's the deal with the Full Moon?

When the Moon is new, the Luminaries -- the  Sun and Moon -- are aligned in the opposite Zodiac sign.  That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of those signs.  The time of the full moon is always about striking a climactic balance between yin (masculine energy represented by the sun) and yang (feminine energy represented by the moon). 

The Full Moon marks the peak of a cycle that began at the New Moon. Whether you're aware of it consciously or not. Creating a meditation ritual around these cosmic positions helps us bring these subconscious and sometimes subtle energies to a more conscious level.

At the Full Moon every month, we have the opportunity to start anew, after allowing the intentions set at the New Moon come to full fruition.

T H E   L I T T L E  D E T A I L S

  • Full Moon Meditations are monthly lunar celebrations hosted by CTG Yoga and guided by some of the Twin Cities' most inspired instructors.
  • Each class is composed of a carefully curated sequence and a custom soundtrack created by the guest instructor specifically for the event. 
  • Instructors are invited to sprinkle the class with magical surprises that are sure to make each meditation a unimagined experience...that can translate to restorative adjustment, intention setting, sacred chants, or aromatherapy...

Meet Abby!

This month's New Moon Meditation will be guided by Abigail Touminen. Learn about her journey and what kind of unique magic she will bring!

I was 13-years-old when I first encountered Yoga, though I didn’t start practicing regularly until I was in college - looking for a way to manage my mental health without the use of prescription medication. The experiences I was having on my yoga mat were deeply healing - they helped me feel grounded, safe, and beautiful - so I decided to participate in a teacher training so I could spread what I’d learn from my own practice and help others feel empowered. I completed a 230-hour training with Radiant Life Yoga, a Yin Yoga training with Michelle Pietrzak-Wegner, and an Energy Medicine Yoga training with Lauren Walker in Montana. I teach a slow, gentle, and relaxing practice that focuses on bringing awareness to the mind-body connection and cultivating self-compassion and curiosity for our felt experience.   I am fascinated by philosophy, and enjoy bringing the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Energy Work, Astrology, and Taoism into my classes. My hope for my students is that they can tune into the energetic nature of this human experience, and start using breath as a tool to cope, heal, and empower themselves. I strongly believe that this practice will help us all step into the fullness of our lives, enabling us to access our creative, intuitive, and healing abilities.

After we meditate, stick around to enjoy some calming Hibiscus Berry tea from the wonderful folks at Rishi Tea!

Rishi started in a windowless 400 square-foot space in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, where loose leaf teas were formulated and hand blended in micro-batches for sale to cafés throughout the Midwest. "Rishi" means “one who is a seer, sage, or seeker of truth” in Sanskrit. For us it means constantly striving to learn more about tea and strengthening our connection to tea and botanicals and the people who grow them. We strive to reveal the natural truth to our modern society, which has become so far removed from gardens and kitchens, and overly dependent on labs for synthetic and processed beverages. As Rishi, we want to share some natural and simple alternatives for people to live healthy and delicious lives. Discover new teas and join us on a wondrous botanical journey to leave No Leaf Unturned.

& R O S E    ICED TEA

a stunning and refreshing floral drink to cool off with in the intense heat of summer days

Author: Noha Serageldin

Serves: 8

INGREDIENTS

  • • 1 litre water
  • • ¼ cup Hibiscus Berry Tea  from Rishi Tea
  • • ⅓ cup honey
  • • 2 tsp. rosewater

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large kettle or heatproof glass bottle, Place the dried hibiscus flowers/teabags and the black tea teabags (if using). Boil the water and pour into the bottle. Let steep for 15 minutes then remove the black tea teabags (if using) and add the honey and taste to adjust sweetness. It should be intense and slightly sweeter than you like because it will be watered down when you serve it over ice or with soda water.
  2. Let it cool down completely, then add the rosewater. Cover and chill in the fridge until cold. Strain out the hibiscus flowers/petals/teabags, serve over lots of ice or diluted with a little soda water for some added fizz. Add some slices of lemon and/or dried rose petals for added prettiness.

So what's the deal with the New Moon?

When the Moon is new, the Luminaries -- the  Sun and Moon -- are aligned in the same Zodiac sign.  That makes it a charged time with concentrated energies of that sign.  

A New Moon is a symbolic point of attention, and a symbolic portal for new beginnings. 

New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you'd like to create, develop, cultivate, & manifest.

December's New Moon is under the influence of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the most independent signs of the zodiac. Free-spirited and wise, Sagittarius energies are provocative and fiery. Sagittarius can ruffle feathers through blunt or tactless comments.

A bit more on what it means when the New Moon is in Sagittarius:

The New Moon in Sagittarius presents an opportune time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Archer:

  • increase understanding and awareness;
  • muster up the courage to expand your horizons and branch out into new ways of thinking;
  • gain more confidence and optimism by focusing on the "big picture";
  • transcend the details of mundane existence;
  • work on positive thinking as a way of life;
  • take an exam, apply for or begin a new higher learning course, travel;
  • nurture faith, hope, and vision without overdoing one's expectations.

We can too easily get lost in the details of mundane existence. With this potent Sagittarius energy, we can find ways to transcend these details of day-to-day life and nurture our faith, hope, and vision. Because Sagittarius thinks in big terms, we may have a tendency to overdo our expectations. It's time to be a little more adventurous, and to set the stage for reaping the rewards from our braveries, as little or big as they may be, in approximately two weeks' time after the Full Moon occurs.

Complimentary Turmeric-Ginger Rishi Tea will be served after we meditate!

This month's Lunar Gathering will be led by Thomas Sugatt, E-RYT200

Tom is a student of yoga first and a teacher of yoga second. Practicing and teaching yoga has given him the opportunity to live a purposeful life, focused on a happy and healthy body, mind, and spirit. The feeling he gets during and after practice provides him the sheer joy of being completely in the moment, connecting his body to the earth and his mind to the spirit. Tom believes that each individual is perfectly imperfect and he is humbled to be able to share in the collective progress of this process called yoga.

Tom teaches vinyasa at the Grand Ave CorePower Yoga location on Tuesday's at 7:30p, Saturday's at 7:30p, and Sunday's at 4p.

 

A LITTLE BIT MORE ON WHAT IT MEANS WHEN THE NEW MOON IS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF SCORPIO:

Scorpio New Moons are generally good for working on our self-mastery skills. We may want to pinpoint the things in our lives that make us feel out of control, such as addictions and debts, and work on freeing ourselves of these emotional burdens. This New Moon cycle is also an opportune one in which to explore what is missing in our lives that leads us to engage in these self-destructive behaviors. This New Moon aligns with good luck Jupiter, but also squares Saturn. This cycle represents an opportunity to rid ourselves of the "junk" in our lives--material and spiritual. With this potent Scorpio energy, we have the chance to make important changes in our lives. 

One of Scorpio's "lessons" involves learning to dig deeper into the mysteries around us instead of always being content with status quo. Taking the time to understand others' motives can enrich our feelings of intimacy, forgiveness, and sense of meaning. Scorpio also teaches us that dedication to one meaningful relationship or undertaking can be significantly more satisfying than spreading ourselves around. Here, "quality over quantity" applies. We might want to use this cycle to work on focusing on and developing one special project or relationship in order to help add purposefulness and depth to our lives.

The New Moon in Scorpio shifts your consciousness from external relationships to more internal issues. Depth and meaning are qualities that give value to our existence. There are many mysteries in life that intrigue us and invite us to delve a little deeper. This is a time when you find yourself looking within, seeking to understand yourself more truly. Look at the areas in your life that need healing. Some of it may be physical, but much of it is probably emotional. Contemplate the way you respond to any situation or crisis.

November's New Moon is in passionate Scorpio. Scorpio is a dynamic water sign. Scorpio is resourcefoul but sometimes unyielding in it's actions. It's energies can lead to jealous, manipulative and suspicious behavior.

This month's Lunar Gathering will be led by Emily Rose Duea, E-RYT500.

After stepping onto the mat in 2004, Emily Rose has been no stranger to the mental, physical, and spiritual healing powers of yoga. Emily Rose has shared her love of teaching yoga internationally in China, France, and Senegal. She is thrilled to be back in the Minnesota Yoga community and is ready to share intuitive and fun classes with her students.
When not trying on mala beads at the studio or with her nose in a book. Emily Rose loves going to coffee shops and doing theatre around the twin cities. She is so thankful to all of her teachers from Power Yoga (1 and 2), Yin Yoga (1 and 2), Yoga Sculpt, Chair Yoga, Kid's Yoga and Hot/Hot Power Fusion  Teacher Trainings and every student she meets who encourages her to keep learning.

Please note! The October New Moon Meditation is filled to capacity. If you are interested in being added to the waitlist, please RSVP and fill out the form (be sure to include your phone number so we can contact you if anything opens up)!

This month's New Moon is in Libra, a diplomatic air sign. Libra's influence brings feelings of grace and peace. It is an extremely hospitable and idealistic sign. Libran energies can have superficial tendencies, especially in regards to appearance. 

A little more on the Libra New Moon...

When the moon transits (or passes through) Libra, a sense of order and most notably, balance is yearned for (Libra's symbol is the Scales...not surprisingly). Unlike Virgo (where the moon has been transiting for it's previous cycle), expressions of balance will occur through striking harmonious interactions with others and a heightened sense of aesthetic to our immediate surroundings (Virgo approaches balance from a more analytical perspective, using the fine print and little details to find a sense of harmony).

Problem solving occurs with diplomacy and we are more able to take a pragmatic stance towards conflict. Emotions are not as likely to erupt under a Libra Moon, since during this time, peace and harmony are what we crave most. Pragmatism can be a great tool that becomes more readily available to us, however, avoidance due to being able to see both sides of a situation is this transit's biggest downfall, leaving us with un-addressed issues that need tending to. Decision making does not come easily, and confrontation is likely to be avoided at all costs--we are far more likely to save face for the sake of others' approval than to speak our mind and risk upsetting or loosing someone's faith in us.  

After we meditate, stick around to enjoy some calming Turmeric-Ginger tea from the wonderful folks at Rishi Tea:

Rishi started in a windowless 400sf space in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, where loose leaf teas were formulated and hand blended in micro-batches for sale to cafés throughout the Midwest. "Rishi" means “one who is a seer, sage, or seeker of truth” in Sanskrit. For us it means constantly striving to learn more about tea and strengthening our connection to tea and botanicals and the people who grow them. We strive to reveal the natural truth to our modern society, which has become so far removed from gardens and kitchens, and overly dependent on labs for synthetic and processed beverages. As Rishis, we want to share some natural and simple alternatives for people to live healthy and delicious lives. Discover new teas and join us on a wondrous botanical journey to leave No Leaf Unturned.

New Moon Meditation (September/Virgo)

September's New Moon falls under Virgo's influence. Virgo is an analytical Earth sign for. With it's energies, you can expect precision to become heightened. Virgo is alert and observant and places an emphasis on details. Reliability and follow-through are valued more now. Virgo energies can be fussy or inflexible and sometimes cold.

New Moon Meditations are held every New Moon of the month. We begin approximately at sunset. Bring a mat, blanket and warm comfortable clothes. We will begin with two rounds of Moon Salutations (so be prepared to move!) and we will end with an extended savasana meditation. Hot luna tea will be served afterwards!

P L E A S E | N O T E: THE SEPTEMBER NEW MOON MEDITATION HAS BEEN RESERVED FOR A PRIVATE PARTY.

New Moon Meditation (August/Leo)

This month's New Moon is in Leo which brings ambitious and tendencies. Leo is a loyal and confident sign with an encouraging and generous nature. Leo can also bring out pretentious and vain qualities in people. It can also cause feelings of stubbornness and if met with resistance, can be melodramatic and domineering.

New Moon Meditations are held every New Moon of the month. We begin approximately at sunset. Bring a mat, blanket, and warm comfortable clothes. We will begin with two rounds of Moon Salutations (so be prepared to move!) and we will end with an extended savasana meditation. Hot luna tea will be served afterwards.
