Mother Moon Yoga
AWAKEN THE LIVING PRESENCE OF THE FEMININE DIVINE WITHIN
What is Mother Moon Yoga?
Mother Moon Yoga is a re-remembering, a re-birthing, a re-aligning with the original mystical essence of yoga. Yoga as we know it in the West has become very masculinized with an emphasis on strength and physical performance. But at its origin, yoga was and is a sacred communion with The Goddess, The Mother. Yoga at its heart is prayer. It is breath. It is gentle organic dance. Original yoga is a hymn your body sings in response to the sacred rhythms of life, of Mother Earth, and of our sweet Mother Moon.
There is nothing quite like Mother Moon Yoga. It brings together not only the sacred lineages of multiple forms of yoga, but also the astrological wisdom of the Moon, the sacred experience of full body anointing, the ancient vibrations of the hymns and mantras of our ancestors, and ends integrating it all in the practice of deep soul writing.
Together, these mystical practices awaken the living presence of the Feminine Divine within waiting for expression in and through and as you.
Mother Moon Yoga meets from 7:00-8:48 pm Eastern (6 central, 5 mountain, 4 pacific, 1 Hawaii, wee hours in Europe and the following morning in the Pacific Rim).
NOTE: We meet on the EVE of the dark or full moon because the eve is the moment we meet the full potency of the particular lunar cycle. That’s why the schedule moves
Every time zone experiences a moon phase sequentially, so we are going to use the time of the actual Dark or Full Moon in Hawaii.
Please note: the live Mother Moon Yoga experience is recorded and available by 1pm eastern the following day so you can repeat the experience in the preferred time in your time zone and also so that you can re-experience it multiple times throughout the 3-day phase just as your ancestors did.

Our Yoga Goddesses
Namaste and Welcome to Mother Moon Yoga. I am excited to share with you my part in this beautiful synergistic program. As the world continues to shift and change in unpredictable ways, it is ever more important to turn within and find our inner sense of security, stability, and connection to something greater than ourselves. It is time for us to once again, trust our intuition, and our bodies, and for our voices to be heard and our light to be seen.
Through our movement and yoga practices we will reconnect with and embody our feminine strength, creativity, dreaming, playfulness, and courage. We will find stability in revitalizing our relationship with our bodies, with Mother Earth, and with the many forms of the Feminine Divine energy. We will activate those qualities and abilities within us that help us move through these chaotic times and develop a kinder, more inclusive, world where all are valued and respected.
I find great joy in sharing the synthesis of my experiences, learnings, knowledge, and wisdom so that together we may rise and be more than our individual parts, creating a sustainable, loving future for all. I am a 500-hour yoga instructor in the lineage of Kali Natha Yoga, taught by Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati—a yoga that is accessible to all, encourages listening to and trusting our bodies, and brings opportunities for expanded awareness and profound healing. My love for Mother Earth is deep and life-long and my relationship with her has expanded through my studies with Oh Shinnah Fastwolf and AnnA Kyleah. I am a licensed massage therapist from the Bhakti School of Intuitive Massage & Healing. My own children and the many infants and families that I have worked with over the years in the NICU have provided a fertile ground for recognizing and honoring the many forms of communication we have access to and the importance of holding a space of love and non-judgement so that all may thrive. In Mother Moon Yoga I invite you to open to your own Feminine Divine Nature, allowing her to guide your way.
For more than a decade Rosanna has been a practitioner of Qigong. It has been so powerfully transformative and healing for her, that she loves sharing it with others whenever she can. Rosanna holds certifications in several different forms of Medical Qigong, and is also certified in Chinese Aromatherapy.
Zeny is a Yogini, Musician, Sound Healer and Ayurveda Teacher. With a mixed heritage that includes Indian and Filipino, Zeny was raised in a culturally and spiritually diverse home. Her first yoga experience was listening to her mom chanting “Om” when she was a child.
Zeny has traveled extensively in India, studying Classical Hatha Yoga, Shaivist and Shakti Tantra, Mantra and Ayurveda. She is certified at the highest level recognized by Yoga Alliance as a Yoga Teacher Trainer, conducting 200 and 500-Hour Yoga Teacher Trainings and Tantric Mentorship programs through her school Hawaii School of Yoga. She has been fortunate to learn from many great Gurus notably Mataji Sri Lalithambika, a lineage holder of Sri Vidya in south India, Guru Karunamaya, His Holiness Swami Rhambau, and Russil Paul author of the book The Yoga of Sound. In January 2020, Zeny was formally initiated as an Acharya in Ganeshpuri, India by Swami Khecharanatha into Kundalini Sadhana under the lineage of Bhagavan Nithyananda.
Inspired by one of India’s greatest Yogi’s, Sri Aurobindo, who was the first to say “All Life is Yoga”, Zeny promotes the yogic way of life, not just the practice on the mat. Her personal practice involves meditating and chanting daily, playing music, studying sacred scripture, teaching yoga classes, and most importantly Seva. Zeny and her husband support an orphanage for girls in south India through their singing bowl business Shakti Vibronics.
With a passion for sacred music, Zeny plays the piano, harp, harmonium, tanpura, and Indian singing bowls. And her main instrument is her voice. She has a gift for Sanskrit chanting and conducts kirtan and chanting sessions all over Oahu. She is also studying Music Engineering with Berklee College of Music.
In her free time, Zeny enjoys spending time at the beach with her family and cooking Indian food, cauliflower pakoras are a particular favorite!
Emma Kupu Mitchell
Emma has been a practitioner of holistic therapies for over 30 years, including clinical Aromatherapy, Ayurveda, Depth Numerology, Elemental Astrology with an emphasis on the Moon, Yoga Nidra, and Sound Healing. Emma uses her extensive knowledge of ancient healing practices to create unique sound- infused sacred anointing oils and tinctures aligning with your natal chart and the “sacred geometry” of YOU.
Emma’s passion over the last 5- 6 years has been in elemental and shamanic astrology (particularly the lunar/moon wisdom) studying with amazing teachers which has enabled a deeper level of wisdom and understanding of her own life and her work with clients. Emma brings the vibrations and ancient mysteries of the celestial skies down to earth and interweaves these teachings in a unique approach with depth numerology through the lineage of Pythagoras.
I believe Hawaii called me (all the way from England!) to this ancient energetic land – the heart chakra of Mother Earth, the perfect location to hear the senses of our Souls and to be in harmony with nature and our natural rhythms. It is with deep gratitude that I continue to share the “mana” of these beautiful islands through my work today as a soul medicine artist guiding you back to wholeness - helping you hear and live the music, beauty, and wisdom of your Soul.
Our Prayer Artist
Janet Conner is a prayer artist, deep soul explorer, field guide in The Mystic, and mistress of the mystical theta brain wave state—the threshold between worlds. But first and always, Janet is a devoted daughter of the Feminine Divine and Original Prayer. Put it all together and you can see why many consider Janet a 21st century wise and wonder-filled witch.
Her first book, Writing Down Your Soul, became a bestseller, followed by The Lotus and The Lily, Soul Vows, Find Your Soul’s Purpose and more. When “Prayer Artist” came calling, Janet found herself writing a whole new genre of prayer, redefining prayer altogether, and leading radical prayer intensives with fellow female mystics. She launched the Praying at the Speed of Love podcast to host intimate conversations with authors about their private prayer lives. Although she can hear the trees in the Hudson River Valley whispering her name, for now Janet lives with silence, solitude, and joy in the tiny town of Ozona, Florida on the Gulf of Mexico.
