Davie Chupp CMT, joins Ashtanga yoga 302’s massage practice

As many of you know I have been a massage therapist for 5 years. I am proud/excited to announce there will be someone new added to the team here at Ashtanga yoga 302. My goal is to continue growing my massage career, while helping another future massage therapist build there’s.

Davie Chupp is local to Greenwood, Delaware.She enjoys reading, quality time with her loved ones,and (my personal favorite) making tasty drinks at Amity coffee. 

Davie has a compassionate heart and aspires to do something that helps others. She has always enjoyed giving people massages and now she gets to live out her childhood dream,helping people feel better!

To say our mission’s align would be an understatement. The first question I asked Davie about her massage practice was “do you enjoy it?” Her eyes lit up as she replied “I love it, it’s so fascinating to me.” While chatting about this collaboration over coffee, of course. Davie briefly explained what she was working on, what she wanted to achieve in the next year, and that she wanted to do everything! That sky is the limit, dream bigger type of personality.

Ashtanga yoga 302 is excited to have Davie sharing her massage practice! Currently Booking for August. Follow stress less massage therapy on Facebook!

Thanks for reading,

Why moon days?

In the Ashtanga Yoga tradition, moon days are used as “holidays” or rest days. On the new moon and the full moon, the sun and the moon have a greater gravitational pull on the earth. This energy effects us physically and emotionally. (Hence, why emergency room visits tend to be higher on these days.) It is beneficial for our bodies to take rest on these days, in order to maintain a sustainable practice. Practicing Ashtanga Yoga we become in sync with the natural rhythm of nature. Noticing a sense of grounding during the new moon, and a energetic, emotional experience during the full moon.

How do I spend my moon days?

I spend my moon day mornings, reflecting and journaling intentions for the season ahead. I like astrology and researching what energy’s are floating around in the ethers during the given moon cycle. I also very much enjoy the rest. As Ashtangis we have a tendency to push and give a lot of energy to the practice. I think of these built in rest days as a day to honor the body God gave me and it’s ability to do this practice.

That being said I usually eat all the heavy foods on or before moon days ;)

thanks for reading, Kaila
