DANCE OF OSTARA
In perfect balance, light and dark hang above the budding of Persephone’s return from the underworld, and as the Vernal Equinox ushers in the official start of spring. On its way to its highest position in our sky, the Sun journeys across the celestial equator – the spere of stars and heavenly bodies whose midline intersects with the terrestrial equator. It is during this time of the year that day and night are of equal length. For approximately twelve hours, your region of the Earth will face the Sun squarely, receiving all its splendor and warmth, until it turns away for the night and immerses itself in its own shadow.
Ostara is a wiccan holiday and one of their eight Sabbats. Ostara celebrates the spring equinox. The word Ostara comes from the Anglo-Saxon goddess name, Eostre. Eostre represented spring and new beginnings.
To modern pagans, the goddess Ostara is a goddess of the dawn, spring, and fertility. Her legends involve typical Easter symbols like rabbits, eggs, fairies, and flowers.
The dance I have written is a veneration and celebratory Dance for Ostara. It places a literal spring in our steps, in addition to honoring Persephone’s return through dance portrayal. It is elegant, simple, and most of all ~ fun!

MOON YOGA | BANISH & CLEANSE
Last Quarter Moon – Equinox Prep
This session holds a focus on detoxifying the organs while finding balance and realignment.
With the Equinox New Moon and Astrological New Year coming up next week, this is the ideal time to say our last goodbyes to all that the era of Saturn in its domicile (the past 6 years) and Pluto in Capricorn (the past 15 years) had to teach us. As we prep for the next of many timeline shifts, thresholds and gateways, what better way to ground into our bodies and center our awareness to embrace the miracle that is the here and now.
Please come prepared with your blocks, pillows, blanket, smudge and a nice hot cup of tea.

DANCE OF IMBOLC | FUSION BASICS CHOREOGRAPHY
This beautiful dance was written with the intention of planting seeds of potential for the imminent unfurling of Spring. I’ve included some fun classic steps and paired them with elements of my subtle fusion flair, and as always ~ the movements tell a little story. A touch of folk with some Elemental Fusion magic sprinkled on top.
It is simple, elegant and uplifting.
Everything I have assembled in the Conjurer Practice Companion intertwines beautifully with practicing this dance as as well.
The music track I chose is called The Gore by TVINNA

MOON YOGA: INTUITIVE FLOW
Imbolc Full Moon in Leo
As the Imbolc Full Moon in Leo just barely begins to wane, we are technically still subject to the energy blast of this highly Uranian induced lunation. Let’s regulate that nervous system shall we?
This class is a therapeutic intuitive flow session with a deep restorative finish.
Yoga mat, blocks, blanket, smudge, candle, and a hot cup of tea.
SHEDDING SKINS | FUSION BASICS CHOREOGRAPHY
This class was written with the intention of stepping into 2023 with reverence and joy in both a medicinal and initiatory fashion.
With the Full Moon in Cancer approaching on Friday, hearts are tender as emotions run high.
2 of our closest planets are retrograde which places us in this pocket of “hurry up and slow down” kind of vibes.
What better way to utilize this time by symbolically stripping away outdated versions of ourselves through dance?
The dance I have written for us is simple, elegant, intentional and cathartic.
Everything I have assembled in the Practice Companion intertwines beautifully with practicing this dance as as well.
