Yoga Nidra Intro & Personal Immersion this Friday

This Friday there is still space in the Yoga Nidra Intro, Refresher and Personal Immersion for yoga teachers, health professionals, and anyone interested in jump starting their yoga nidra practice. This guided meditation requires just your presence. You'll understand how the brain and body respond to this restorative form of meditation. We'll practice yoga nidra, learn a bit about how it works, debrief and discuss in the welcoming atmosphere of Scarborough Yoga in the Oasis wellness center in Scarborough, Maine. The workshop runs 11 am-5 pm. Bathrooms are on site and there is a refrigerator for your snacks or lunch. We'll take a short break or two, but bring food and drink you need. On a nice day you can sit outdoors at the picnic table, in the sunshine.
This spacious building has several rest rooms and spaces outside the studio, and it's quite a comfortable place to spend the day.

Wear comfy clothing. There's no need for yoga clothes. Come as you are, prepared to …

Robin's Zodiac Zone July 29th-August 4th 2018

The next eclipse is waiting in the wings for August 11th. Solar eclipse in Leo completes the hat trick of 3.  Rare pattern which is sparking rare events and unforeseen shifts.

Sunday: At 5:25 am EDT the Aquarius Moon opposes Mercury retrograde. This looks like quite the retro type day with unexpected visitors and communication from people that have been gone or away for a while. Keep options open and flex as the Moon is void from then until 7:28 pm EDT. Pisces Moon follows and lulls us to day and night dreams. Today's color is Green.

Monday: Pisces Moon in harmony with planets in Capricorn, Taurus and Scorpio. Today is meant to be gentle on the emotions and good for grounding, planting and manifesting. Light Blue is today's color.

Tuesday: Moon meets Neptune and later opposes Venus in Virgo. Romance and relationships are on our minds. Creative inspirations arise. Romantic ideals may be short lived. Void Moon 642 pm EDT. Today's color is Pink.

Wednesday: At 6:54 am EDT the …

Make the Most of Mercury Retrograde (August 2018)

Hi friends! Mercury retrograde is in Leo this season, from July 26th to August 19th, 2018. It's not all bad! Honestly, I'm more concerned about Mars retrograde in Aquarius right by the Lunar Eclipse on the 27th, Friday. Mars agitates, and on the positive side, can activate when things are not moving along. However, the Sun, Mars and Uranus squaring and opposing in the fixed signs indicates willful tendencies and strong will pushing in a negative direction or with lack of judgment or care feels like a much more undesirable aspect than Mercury retrograde. 

You can enjoy Mercury retrograde by not pushing against the natural flow and by maintaining a low profile, enjoying the moment and refraining from long term commitments and plans as your mind is likely to change and different facts, solutions or potentials arise during or shortly after this cycle. 

Some of this is a repost from 2015. Many things with the RE prefix are Mercury retrograde concepts or words. Re-discover, re-join, r…

Robin's Spring/ Summer Schedule and Events

May 18th-20th Restorative Yoga Teacher Training
This is where the inner work, the cleansing, the self acceptance, the surrender happens. This practice is so needed as we move forward and reconcile all we are inundated with every day, personally and as a culture. I would love to introduce you to the philosophy, the anatomy, the layers, and the reasons for the stillness of Restorative Yoga. We'll contrast the practice with Yin yoga also so you'll get a feel for Yin and for the similarities and differences. Integrate Restorative postures into any practice with knowledge and skill.  At Scarborough Yoga, a great location for training with access to kitchen, purified water, and room to spread out during the weekend.  Sign up for the training or the Class open to the Public on Friday the 18th at 5:30 pm.  Drop in for $15.  at www.scarboroughmaineyoga.com through MindBody app.
Training Hours are Friday/Saturday 12-7 pm & Sunday 12-4 pm
