Witchy Yoga is about ritualistically reclaiming one’s own vital power or Qi. It is essential for Witches (i.e., healers, readers, teachers, coaches) to maintain a self-care regimen. Hence, Witchy Yoga is therapeutic and slow-paced for fluid movement and optimal healing. Music encourages one to channel emotions creatively while asanas (poses) and breath move the energy through the body’s energy centers, transmuting the energy into healing light. Guided visualization and meditation throughout the entire 45 minute class assist the transmutation process. Crystal Therapy, Touch Therapy, and Reiki Healing are integrated alongside aroma therapy and candle magick. Yoga spells combine certain asanas with intent (e.g., tree pose for confidence or cobra for banishing). The Power of the Sun and Moon is harnessed in the form of Sun and Moon Salutations. Herbal tea enhances meditation and matches intent. As with any Witch’s Circle, the Witchy Yoga Circle is sacred space wherein Witches raise and release energy for a specific purpose. Each class is different, pending the solar and lunar cycles, seasons, and planetary alignments; however, 5 minutes is allotted for each chakra/energy center so that each chakra is optimally activated, opened, and aligned with intent. The last 15 minutes of the hour is reserved for Savasana Meditation, Releasing, and Grounding. Witchy Yoga is great for witches who suffer with chronic pain, inflammation, and other ailments that interfere with their ability to heal and help others.

Instructor LaNessa Faye Witherspoon, a 5-year practicing Witch, is a 200-Hour Certified Vinyasa Yoga Instructor through Yoga Alliance. LáNessa began her yoga journey 3 years ago as a means to manage chronic pain resulting from 2 lumbar fusions, 2 neck fusions, and spinal stenosis. Improvement was immediate; yoga proved more beneficial than medication and physical therapy. Yoga soon became a journey into learning how the body can heal itself with the aid of breathwork, meditation, intent, and in working with the body’s energy centers (chakras). As LáNessa delved into learning, she developed a deeper attraction to energy healing with Reiki and crystal therapy, and she soon became certified as a Reiki II Practitioner. LáNessa has completed Wicca I-IV with the High Priestess, Christine, and is currently in her 2nd year of study with the Temple of Witchcraft. LáNessa’s style of healing synthesizes yoga, crystal therapy, meditation, sound, Reiki, and all-around intuitive witchiness into an eclectic healing session. As the lunar cycles and planetary alignments enhance the witch’s spellwork so also can yoga. [Organizer's description]
