Full class; full, completely filled – this hive – the vibe is that of golden shimmering ripples of energy. Ripened moon dripping with golden nectar hangs heavy to the horizon, reminding all of us our connection to that lunar energy. That energy is … powerful like a queen bee’s, nourishing and motherly. Sunday being 2 nights within the full moon phase, we honored with our whole body, mind, spirit to our connection to the cosmos… Singular effort is put out to observe each body for the body language, its aura and calibrate the energy. So much is hidden; so much is stifled from full expression otherwise. I must cultivate the skill to better ZOOM in and create the zone without resorting to dumbing down the class and rather trust that each hears out the wise teacher within.
Ramblings of the evening infused in luminescent veil of … communal magic …refueling … together …
May this first full moon of the New Year that Native Americans named Wolf Moon
be that – as we gaze up to that round light of wonder this start of the year, we invite our animal spirit to lead us to start afresh
Connecting with that instinctual wolf spirit within, we are receptive to the call of the wild
Hushed … as the night deepens and thickens
Listen to that call of our hearts desires, howling
We seek out silence, calmness, clarity where our howls echos and resonates
Finding refuge from the noise
to hear own howling echo and amplified as the vibrations
fade into the velvety night sky
Full Moon evening is that sacred time
to return home to our true nature within
The true nature within
our true spirit call it instinct intuition
We rediscover your luminous brilliance within
that may lay dormant shrouded in layers of dust, debris … grayness, months and years of built up that clutter, we do away with, once again freed
Under the shimmering lunar magic, faint light rekindles and grows … baby flame smolders in the darkness
That light does not battle and destroy darkness but in duality of night and day
radiates energy and shines a rekindled light to flash and expose
We embrace life rooted into the great mother earth, we absorb both darkness and light to grow and glow
high into the cosmos to meetup with that source of all … and blessed to experience the Shift
to be that shooting star connecting and channeling that lunar energy … combustion and expansion
We are all stardust integral part of this boundless web of Oneness we call the Universe The Unknown
May we keep our faith
Our light will again shine however faint or powerful
as we cycle though the seasons with gentleness and grace
The Full Moon is that reminder … there’s beauty
as we salute the rekindled glow within
we affix our translucent gaze Embarking on the New Year with Intention
& so what’s wrong with that?
Unfortunately, plenty …
Straight neck means that the cervical spine has lost the natural swan like graceful supple C-shaped curve that better supported and balanced the weight of our head (10 lbs and up) and that reduced flexibility leads to:
– always a compensation takes place from one part of the body to another – burdened shoulders suffering tension, tightness, stiffness, straight in the case of cervical spine means … stiffness!
– caving in and forward affect of slumping posture
– sagging affect in the front of the neck
– creating more deep lines and fine wrinkles on throat area and over time … let the drum roll …
– droopy or even onset of premature double chin especially vulnerable after a common weight gain which happens for most of us after the holiday season !
Yes … it’s scary lol

Take a Before photo … and let’s compare with an After photo after a month … then 2 months … I am confident that if you follow my instructions, a transformation, however subtle will take place. Most true transformation is not an instant miracle but gradual and subtle … over time.
