Moon Days


 

Why We Don’t Practice on Moon Days:

It is the tradition in Ashtanga Yoga to rest from asana practice on new and full moon days. The reason is that the sun and the moon are in a line relative to the position of the earth. Consequently, their gravitational forces are all combined, and thus the effect of the planets more pronounced. One definitive effect of this is that the ocean’s tides are higher and lower on these days. When asana practice is done daily, rest days are important for regeneration; and the extra biweekly ‘moon day’ comes as a welcomed respite.
