Yin & Yoni — A Lunar Ritual for Women
Yin & Yoni — A Lunar Ritual for Women
Wednesday February 7th / 7 - 8:30pm / Shambhala Publications / 720 Walnut St, Boulder, CO
We are delighted to host Yin & Yoni, when the moon is Waning towards New, to honor women’s bodies and inspire you to delight in self-care as an act of self-love.
This 90-minute offering begins with a gentle yin practice with Caitlin Rose Kenney to open and deepen our connection to the feminine aspects of ourselves. Yin is the relative energy to Yang and represents the subtle, still, hidden, intuitive, cool and feminine qualities of our being. The yin practice is followed by a collective yoni steam, curated by Sierra Brashear, founder of Vibrant Souls.
Yoni steaming provides support for women's physical and emotional wellbeing. It is a holistic health practice in which a woman allows the warmth of herbal steam to gently permeate her vagina (yoni). Yoni steaming is a powerful ancient remedy that has been used for centuries by women worldwide. This gentle treatment provides effective support for the female reproductive system, and invites reconnection with the powerful, creative energy of a woman's center.
Please note, while we will be sharing an intimate experience, your privacy will be honored as you will be wrapped in a cozy blanket during the yoni steam ritual. This is a women only event.
Carving out time in your life to create space for self-care rituals is an act of self love. Our bodies are the container for our being and we must gently cultivate and nourish them. Each participant will be sent home with a New Moon Botanical Bath Tea, provided by Moon Bath, to integrate the experience we’ve shared. The New Moon is a time of rebirth and renewal, calling upon us to tune inward and take rest. Fragrant like a field of lavender and chamomile, our New Moon Bath Tea is deeply calming to the mind, soothing to the physical body, and uplifting to the spirit.
Experience includes Yin Yoga practice, Vibrant Souls Yoni Steam and a New Moon Bath Tea.
Please bring: a cozy blanket, warm socks and a towel.
This practice is not for anyone during their flow cycle (menstruation) or pregnancy.
BENEFITS OF YONI STEAMING
Improve Your Cycle — Cleanse and revitalize with herbal steam. With regular yoni steaming, you'll support your natural feminine cycle to do its best. Many women experience reduced cramps, healthier flow, more regular menstruation and improved fertility.
Relax and Detoxify — Indulge in the blissful self-care that you deserve. You'll enjoy the delightful sensation of the steam as it gently encourages you to release both physical and emotional toxins.
Heal Your Womb — Rejuvenate with deeply nourishing herbs. Yoni steaming is traditionally used to heal, tone and cleanse the uterus after birth, and is thought to reduce uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and endometriosis. It can also help reduce symptoms of menopause.
