Dark moon ritual - Yoga Nidra meditation & Relaxation class online

7th April - 8:30-9:15PM GMT 9:30-10:15PM CET 3:30-4:15PM EST

Let go, relax & replenish your energy 

The Dark Moon Ceremony, is truly where the magic happens. By honoring our need for deep rest, at what we here at Universal Movement recognisethat the dark moon is one of the most important times of the lunar cycle.

As the dark moons energy and our personal energy levels are their lowest point, this is an opportunity to let go, surrender and reset, allowing us to unwind, relax and take some much need time out for ourselves. If we push ourselves day after day without giving in to rest during the waning and dark moon phase can lead to a continuous depletion of our physical and emotional reserves, culminating in exhaustion, particularly as the full moon approaches. 

Take a pause and join us in honoring the importance of deep rest with this Yoga Nidra meditation led by Alexe, Universal Movement founder and methodology creator. This ceremony is a unique opportunity for us to rest and replenish while engaging in practices of restorative yoga, Yoga Nidra meditation, and letting-go visualisation techniques, guiding you to release and embrace renewal.
