We get asked this a lot, so we’ve decided to show you rather than just tell you!
Below you’ll find a recording of our YWTM Christmas Party 2020 where you can join us in end of year reflections.
Most simply put, a Moon Circle is a ritual and celebration held by a group of people under the moon – usually a New Moon or a Full Moon.
At the beginning of the below video, Sian briefly explains the different purposes of Moon Circles at different phases of the moon.
Here at YWTM we circle up at a New Moon and at a Full Moon.
There are many ways to hold a moon circle, but here at YWTM our format is generally as follows:
- A 30 minute yoga sequence in keeping with the energy of the moon phase
- An introduction to the theme for that circle
- A guided meditation
- A guided journaling practice
- A space to share, to listen and to be heard
The magic really happens in the sharing – listening and learning from each other, and most importantly, practicing being seen and heard and loved for who we are. For the privacy of the attendees of the below recorded circle, the sharing element has been edited out. What is said in Circle, stays in Circle. Always.
Hi I’m Lish 👋🏻
I’m mostly found barefaced and barefoot.
I married my soulmate & we have a beautiful boy age 4, as well as a Rusty-dog & 3 chickens. We experiment with growing our own fruits & veggies.
I love nature & try to connect with it everyday, either through simply grounding in my garden, on dog walks with my family or on wild adventures camping and climbing mountains. 🏔
I try to live a green, eco lifestyle as much as possible, plastic & littering is a pet peeve. 💚
I’m naturally creative & love experimenting with new crafts, journalling, or generally getting my hands messy. I also enjoy reading. 📖
And of course I love the Moon and her ever changing cycles, energy & magic.
I came to yoga to find some peace and self care – being a stay at home mum I rarely had time for myself, I slipped into a spell of anxiety & depression. I fell in love with the magic of yoga, it changed my life and I REALLY love being able to share it’s magic with others. 🙏🏻✨

Hi I’m Sian!
🐺 I keep it real. I’m always striving for honesty and authenticity. I really hate anything fake. I believe that the key to happiness and connection is through honesty and compassion.
🌹 I’m always seeking growth. I wanna learn all the things – all about me, all about you, all about the cosmos and the caterpillar and the microbes in our gut… I am always seeking a deeper understanding, wider context, a new perspective… Let’s learn from each other.
🌊 I ebb and flow like the tide – like the ocean and the phases of the moon. I am not constant. And nor are you. And that is OK. More than OK… that is beautiful.
🌿 We are Nature. The older I get the more I understand that we are an integral part of Nature – not just witnessing it, but intrinsically connected to the earth and the plants and the animals. The more I explore this connection, the more I understand myself, and the more peace I find within me. I invite you to explore it too. Together.
🧜🏼♀️ I believe in magic and storytelling. I believe in the power of words and mystery. I believe in fairytales and ghost stories and folklore and legend. I believe there is a lot to learn from the stories we tell – how the history of our people, our families, our cultures, and our own pasts are created and recreated with each telling. How stories blur the lines between what’s real and imagined, what’s true and pretend…
✨ I love sparkles and glitter and sequins. I aspire to live a life where I wear glorious light-bouncing costumes every day. While simultaneously being barefoot in nature.
✈️ Oh! And I once travelled 130mph on the outside of a plane… 😉 Check out my story highlights on Instagram @sianpeters.me
So tell me about you? What do you believe? How do you love? What do you want to discover, uncover and learn more about?
