LET ME TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT MY NICKNAME
KEEP UP TO DATE WITH LUNA
I was in deep conversation with a wonderful soul from our retreat back in May 2019. We were on our hike deep in the foothills of the Atlas mountains and we were talking about the many nicknames I have coveted over the years - Claire bear, Tiny, Tiny dancer, TD, to name a few. I was telling her where 'Luna' came from. It was a name that someone close to me at one point in my life had given me to due to my nature of going a little crazy when the full moon ascended.
As I went through my teacher training it became a buffer, a protector of sorts; the Sascha Fierce to my Beyonce, as I navigated sharing something I was so passionate about, yet shit scared of delivering to you. That need for a protective blanket has worn off, but the moniker, the nickname is still there as I navigate through the years of teaching.
Delphine told me how much she believed that the name I had connected with suited me and my message, that she believed it was a name I should continue to carry as long as I felt comfortable with it, that I should own it just as much as I do Claire, Tiny, Tiny Dancer etc.
In that moment of complete acceptance, we both looked down at the little girl who had been walking in front of us the whole time we'd been talking. I focused in on the writing on her backpack as she skipped along in front of us. "Soy Luna" (I'm Luna) .... The Universe gives us magical signs if we open up to it!
My classes tend to vary weekly, but expect a strong, dynamic flow, that is light and playful at heart. I am a firm believer that we can all enjoy the benefits of this old tradition in a modern way, I will always offer plenty of variations to poses that allow you to take control of your practice.
The practice that speak most to me are what I teach to you. Rocket, Mandala Vinyasa, Yin and Vinyasa flow.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM MY CLASSSES
I'm so grateful you have happened upon my website and are keen to learn more about a practice that has helped me so much through these latter years of my life. Movement to me is such a big part of my life and over time I have noticed how much it has effected my overall wellbeing and mindset. Where the practice of Yoga started off as a physical practice it very quickly started to seep elsewhere into my life.
Time on my mat has allowed me the opportunity to understand my natural reactions and patterns in day to day life. Giving myself this time brings me back to the present, it connects me to the cycle of the breath, which is the cycle of life and connects me also to a feeling of higher purpose and spirit.
Yoga continues to teach me the importance of kindness and acceptance in both myself and to others.
