Jyotish Workshop

Intro to Traditional Indian Astrology: Aligning with the Planetary Rulers of the Day

Sometimes called “Vedic” astrology, Jyotish is the oldest system of astrology. It's name is dervied from the sanskrit word “jyoti” which means “light.”

In this workshop we will discuss the difference between Jyotish (or Vedic) and Western (or Tropical) astrology, cover the basics of how to look at a birth chart in the North Indian Jyotish tradtion, and discuss the planetary rulers of each weekday. Each planet has attributes that can make some activities more powerfully aligned with a certain planetary day. We will learn Jyotish techniques for intentionally aligning with the planets and the day of the week each planet rules.

As a group, we will look at the Jyotish chart for the present moment and discuss how we can align with the energies that are alive for the day, some of the powerful transits that are active during that moment, and remedies that can support us during the transits.

Print outs of the basic material we cover will be provided so that you can

add notes to this outline.

Arrive dressed comfortably with an open mind.

Bring a notebook and pen/pencil, a pillow or blanket to sit on, and a question

like you might ask in a tarot reading.

Yoga Nidra

Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of deep conscious rest.... a state of relaxed awareness that can allow for deep physical, mental and emotional healing. Practitioners lay in a comfortable position on the floor and follow a guided meditation that’s designed to cycle through the stages of awake, dreaming and deep sleep. There’s only one pose in this class so it is suitable for all level yogis! It’s been said that one hour of yoga nidra is equal to a few hours of regular sleep so you will leave class feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Join us Friday 3/4 at 7:00pm-8:15pm at Lavender Koi Yoga. This will be held in studio as well as live-stream. Make sure to sign up for the one
