Why Awakened Moon Yoga?
I have been asked this question many times. I often joke and say that when you search Madison Best on the Internet, you get the best restaurants, hotels, yoga studios, etc, in Madison, WI. While this is true, Awakened Moon Yoga is more complex than that.
When I first started practicing yoga, I had just graduated college and wasn’t quite sure where I wanted my life to go. I had moved back home to have some sense of roots after living out of a suitcase for two months. I had taken a job, that while I thought was fun, was not using my full capabilities. And then one day I tagged along with my mom to a yoga class. I was instantly hooked. Something sparked within me that day that I like to think of as the start of my awakening to my truest self. I thought I had known who I was, but this practice of movement, breathing, and meditation, had brought up stuff deep inside of myself that I had no idea was there. I am still in a constant state of learning about who I am and what I stand for, but yoga has made me a far more well rounded human, comfortable in my own skin and in the world around me.
As for the moon, I have always seen it as this beautiful entity. I remember once as a teenager, I was out of town and on the phone with a close friend. To feel more connected, I suggested we both look at the moon and feel the comfort in knowing that while we could not be in the same place, we could still have the same view. The moon is also a symbol of femininity and the ever-changing nature of life, both of which I am continuously trying to understand and be more comfortable with.
