12:15-1:15pm Join us each Wednesday in the FEELING room for a weekly Vinyasa flow class with Moira Duggan. (Please note that the 2nd Wednesday of each month Ashima Kahrs will facilitate Soma Yoga at this time) Begin with an intention to connect your mind, body and spirit through breath, warm up postures and movements. Moira will then lovingly guide you through a series of asanas, using elemental sequencing for a flowing, gentle yet invigorating practice. Ending with a cool down and blissful savasana and guided meditation, you will leave this class energized, connected and refreshed! All levels welcome.
Facilitator: Moria Duggan
Moira began practicing yoga over 15 years ago, as a way get in shape and ease stress. As a single mother of 2 energetic boys, she needed to find balance and peace in her life, for them. On the mat, she learned about letting go, challenging herself, both physically and mentally, but most of all about self-love and how interconnected we all are. Slowly, the layers of self-doubt, insecurity, past traumas and hurts began to peel away, and she heard the first whispers of her true calling – to help others heal, as she was being healed.
In 2006, she started her first company, Bella Terra Organics – a handcrafted organic skin care company she created initially to provide non-toxic skin care to patients undergoing cancer treatment. She designed the aromatherapy based skin care line using pure essential oils, to be safe, affordable and effective. As a licensed cosmetologist, she understood how beautiful skin and hair were tied to how women felt about themselves, and how important a positive mindset was in the healing process. The more she delved into crafting her products, and learning about natural healing, the more important the role of nutrition came into view. “Good skin and hair comes from good health – not from a bottle”.
In 2013, Moira enrolled in Institute for Integrative Nutrition, where it all came together for her: her love of yoga and aromatherapy, healthy cooking, emotional healing, environmental and personal detoxification, global consciousness and spiritual growth. Today, Moira is a certified holistic health practitioner and 200hr registered yoga instructor. Aromatherapy and essential oils remain a pillar of healing in Moira’s approach to holistic health. She is passionate about helping people detox their lives, reclaim their health, and most of all find balance and happiness in their lives.
Moira lives in South Carolina with her amazing dachshund, Milo. She loves to spend time at the beach, teach vegetarian cooking classes and introduce beginners to the beauty and grace that can be found on the yoga mat, and within themselves.
