Through practising Ashtanga Yoga we become aware of our own tendencies and the natural cycles that occur within and around us. Hopefully, over time we are able to function more harmoniously with ourselves and with the environment we live in.


Observing moon days connects us with the functioning of the universe and makes us aware of the effect the universal energy can have on us individually.


The phases of the moon are felt throughout the natural world and humans, being 70% water are subject to the moons gravitational pull at different times of the month, giving rise to different energetic experiences.


The full moon is a time of heightened energy, of strength and abundance. It is likened to the end of the inhale when the upward force of prana is at its fullest. Whilst the new moon is a time of calmness, of introspection, the small pause before growth and expansion. It is likened to the end of the exhale, when the downward force of apana is greatest.


Practicing Ashtanga Yoga over time makes us more attuned to natural cycles. Observing moon days is one way to recognize and honour the rhythms of nature so we can live in greater harmony with it.


Because of these differences in energies it is advised to take rest from your yoga practice. It is also said that practitioners are more likely to injure themselves on moon days..therefore best to rest!


We observe Moon Days for Mysore Practice, however Led classes will still be held.
