SEPTEMBER FULL MOON YOGA HIKE

  • Craggy Gardens Picnic Area, Blueridge Parkway NC (map)

Friday September 21st // Sunset 7.28pm // Moonrise 5.55pm

Our Full Moon Yoga Hikes take place the Friday closest to the full moon each month. We start with a .5 mile hike up to Craggy Gardens to enjoy the sunset. As the full moon rises in the night sky, we join together for a gentle lunar practice, learning to flow and tap into the subtle energy of this moon phase. We'll sip hot tea after our class and hike with new friends down under the light of the full moon. Times are dependent on the sunset and moonrise, with events lasting around 2.5 hours. 

**Suggested donation $20, please pay what you can afford - all are welcome!

(Includes yoga and hiking, hot tea, mats + blankets, and professional photos)

 

September: Harvest Moon

The Harvest Moon is the name given to the first full moon that takes place closest to the Autumn equinox, which this year will come on September 23. The Harvest Moon arrived late last year, on October 5 - it normally rises in September.

It was during September that most of the crops were harvested ahead of the autumn and this moon would give light to farmers so they could carry on working longer in the evening. Some tribes also called it the Barley Moon, the Full Corn Moon or Fruit Moon.
