Traditionally, Ashtanga yoga is not practiced on the day of the full moon or new moon....but why??
The best explanation I have read comes from Tim Miller's website. Tim is one of the most senior Ashtanga teachers in the west.
Here's a link to what Tim has to say on moon days:
In my own practice, sometimes I do practice on moon days and sometimes I don't. I try to be mindful of my energy level and let that dictate how much asana practice I do on those days.
I am curious how other practicioners feel about practice on moon days. Anyone want to chime in on this?
