From today 1st December 2021 we are required by law to restrict group classes to students with a covid vaccination certificate or recent negative test (PCR-72hrs or rapid antigen). We know this change will affect a number of our regular students. Please get in touch with Zoe if you need to pause your class pass or require a refund of any unused portion.
On a lighter note, we are coming up to the end of the year and have some fun small gatherings for our community to connect in a different format.
Our MoY Community end of year dinner on 14th December, we will go to a wonderful local restaurant for a variety of Vegan and Veggie options, leaving the studio at 7:45pm for an 8pm sitting. Booking is essential so we can give the restaurant an indication of how many of us will be there. This will be seated indoors so Covid Restrictions as above apply. To reserve your spot find MoY Gathering on the app or click here
The Women´s Circle will be held on 18th December 4pm-6:30pm. You will find this under “Lisbon Sister Circle” on our booking app, or register here.
Looking forward to continuing to connect in person adhering to the guidelines outlined by the medical and government advisors.
The studio will be closed for the Christmas and New Year period for 14days, 22nd Dec to 4th January 2022, (classes recommence 5th January).
We hope you have a safe and bliss-filled December!
Spring is in the air with Sauca (Cleanliness) and Santosa (Contentment) guiding our dharma talks and satsang at the studio for the beginning of the season. There are many ways to shift impurities of the mind, cleansing jealousy, greed, anger and ego however for me the most powerful way is to practice Pranayama, Asana and Dharana (single focus meditation). Soon the jealousy shifts to inspriation, the greed into contribution to others, anger into a path to change my actions and ego into humbleness to honour all those who have come before me. Purposefully guiding the mind into a space of expanding inner contentment during seated meditation helps me locate this place when I need it most. Cleansing the emotional and mental bodies daily is an important practice just as we wash our physical body in the shower. Everyday we experience new things, some moments leave lasting impressions and imprints, although we cannot change the past we can learn to cleanse the past from things that cause harm to us. Just like showering, you dont do it just once and stay clean forever, a clean kitchen soon turns to mess after a beautiful home cooked meal, the emotional body is designed to get messy and requires to be cleansed. Share with us your methods of cleansing (not the house…. but the emotions!). We hope your spring clean is as deep as ours has been!
