OBSERVING MOON DAYS

Both full and new moon days are observed as yoga holidays in the Ashtanga Yoga tradition. It is important and necessary to take rest from asana practice on new and full moon days. The sun and the moon both exert a gravitational pull. These pulls affect both mind and body. It can make us feel light and airy (energetic but ungrounded) or heavy and stiff (grounded but lethargic). This impacts the physical practice of yoga (for more information, visit ashtangayogacenter.com).
