Full Moon Rituals & Restorative Workshop
In these Full Moon workshops we get intimate with the meaning of each individual full moon.
With the full moon being the end of the lunar cycle it’s a time when the universe is asking us to slow down and become witness to that which is being illuminated for us, a time of reflection. Are the seeds we planted around the time of new moon starting to bloom and are in service of us or are there things I just need to let go of.
- Cleansing techniques
- Crystal support
- Essential Oils to match our intention for each full moon
- Option for journaling our observances
- Restorative Yoga Poses for deep rest
- Pranayama (breathing techniques to support practice
- Meditation (touch stones to essential nature)
- Crystal singing bowls enhancing subtle body alignment
Our Full Moons for this year:
- July 22nd – Guru Moon – understood as a time to clear off the mind and learn from the dispeller of darkness
- August 19th – Fruit Moon – witnessing the outer & our inner bloomings from the summer sun
- September 23rd – Harvest Moon – time to contemplate & harvest our successes & the things we have learnt from
- October 21st – Hunters Moon – using the light of the moon to seek out that which needed for the winter ahead.
- November 18th – Beaver Moon – a time of giving & sharing the efforts we have made throughout the rest of the year.
- December 16th – The Long Night Moon – close to winter solstice acknowledging darkness is not a mistake.
The term lunatic derives from the latin word lunaticus, an expression used to describe the belief that changes in the lunar cycle can give rise to temporary insanity, particularly in women. Whether celestially in tune or not millions of women and men are unknowingly electrified with emotion around a full moon phase.
This practice sets to bring us into a more emotionally intuitive headspace at a time when we are being called to pay attention, listen and look at what is present for us.
What to expect
- Space to be a witness of that which is arising within and around us
- Pranayama – breathing techniques to shift & clear any blockages to our vital energy source
- Intention setting around the monthly moon theme (options to journal)
- Deep Rest – Long held supported restorative poses to soothe the body and calm the mind
- Meditation & reflections

What our students say
Anonymous 9I love the space that you have created. It's brilliant to have access to the bolsters, blankets and blocks. The space always feels clean and inviting. Please keep the space minimalist. It's a nice haven away from the frantic outside world! All of the teachers create a really supportive environment where you feel confident to try new things or rest if your practise isn't quite at that level yet. I like to feel challenged physically and see progression week-to-week. I always enjoy the relaxation at the end of the class.
Anonymous 8I love that it is a safe, supportive environment with excellent teaching. The space is always set out beautifully and it feels very relaxing. I like the fact there are plenty of props available to use to help with poses. The classes are extremely well planned and it is clear that much thought goes into each session. I love that individual growth is encouraged and different abilities are supported.
Anonymous 7The space has a calm, lovely vibe and it's fantastic that it is dedicated to yoga. I really appreciate the invitations offered by Samantha to stretch my boundaries and my practice is developing.
Anonymous 6Lovely dedicated well equipped calm ... bliss. I had never experienced restorative yoga before: incredible!
Anonymous 5Its a very welcoming space, it's easily accessible and has a lovely feel. I feel held and safe to be myself in the space. I love the variety of classes and particularly value learning yoga as a 'whole'...the philosophy, pranayama, meditation, chanting etc, as well as the asana practice. I also value the commitment and kindness of the teachers. Just to say thank you for all being you. I love Same Star Yoga and will continue to support in any way I can.
Anonymous 4Samantha is a kind patient teacher who welcomes you.
Anonymous 3It is a sacred space for healing and learning, reflecting and to focus. Classes in good setting and atmosphere is achieved. Yogis have appreciation for all things that make us unique or how to correct postures, with what seems to be a naturally in-tune way of instructing us on a safe and individual level. Having trust that they know what they're really doing is a basis to build my confidence.
Anonymous 2I love the location and the feel. The teachers are so knowledgeable and they all have very different styles. I love the classes at Same Star and have recommended you to everyone I know.
Anonymous 1Thank you for all your hard work creating a wonderful local yoga community
ArmaniI loved my experience last week and was going to start going every week, but due to covid obviously I can’t. I loved the yoga poses, the meditation, the bowls, even the room itself was beautiful. I will definitely come back soon!
