New and Full Moon Circle Zoom links live here.



Class: 7:00pm ET Wednesday September 16, Full Moon in Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra


Exact Full Moon: Wednesday, Sept 17, 7:00 am ET


Plug into lunar cycles, slow down, show up, see each other in real time, and share your energy. There will be a portion of each class where your voice will have time to speak to vision and you'll have the space to be heard.

After we check in I’ll talk about the astrological configuration of the day with emphasis on the nakshatra or star where the moon is located, the deity and mythology of the star, and the song or raga attached to the star and will tell the long version of the myth, doing my best to spark inspiration, intuition, and insight. Knowledge of the songs relative to the star is being relayed from the teacher of my teacher, K. Sridhar. A Spotify playlist with the raga/song, will be sent for your practice of enjoyment.

Indian music, the math of emotion, aligns the subtle body by way of listening well. The connection between the star where the moon is and the associated song can bring us back to center. Back to authentic being-ness. Back towards dharma or purpose.


*************************************


*Satsang Logistics - Each Satsang will be held LIVE on Zoom as close to the exact time of the New or Full Moon as practicable. Specific times will be announced closer to each Satsang. The link to the Zoom meeting will be accessible on Allison's homepage, www.allisondennis.com.

Spotify playlists will be sent during the satsang in the Zoom chat window. 


*Discussion about the current moon cycle with suggestions around how to optimize the potential of the Moon’s position and guard against potential potholes and blindspots.


*Mythology associated with the star. Each star is associated with a Vedic story that refers to our own evolutionary process. The stories are a unique medicine, with practical remedial inspiration for us to discover.


*Home practice to the song associated with the star: I will suggest practices to do on your own using the playlist provided which will generally be between 60-90 minutes.

Allison Dennis holds a BFA in Musical Theatre with a Minor in Music from ECU where she studied Sanford Meisner's acting technique. She sang in jazz, funk, and folk bands, recorded and performed as a singer-songwriter, and performed supporting and leading roles in a variety of plays and musicals. 

In NYC at the turn of the millenium, she acted and sang in Off Broadway shows, and ultimately flew in the wildly popular Argentine circus De La Guarda. A back injury during a show brought her to yoga in 2001. 

A herniated disc with nerve impingement made movement quite painful for the first three years of the injury, so her entry point to yoga was the philosophy of India, not the poses. She concentrated on Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras for a decade while becoming a yoga asana teacher as therapy for her own physical pain. Once mobility returned, Allison was finally permitted by her physical therapist to take on an asana practice. Within months she had signed up for her first Yoga Teacher Training in 2005.

From 2010-2018 Allison owned and operated Heart of Yoga School out of Carrboro, NC where she designed and taught three distinct yoga teacher trainings, culminating in a full 800 hour YTT program. She led nineteen long-term trainings while managing the School, guiding curious seekers to become teachers and home practitioners. 

She also spends 2-3 months a year in India, deepening her understanding of the culture and wisdom systems.
