Ashtanga Moon Days: Backbends and Stretches

In Ashtanga Yoga it is traditional to rest from vigorous practice on new moon and full moon days.  The ocean’s tides are higher and lower on these days as is our own energy. They are also considered auspicious days for other forms of devotional or mindful practices. Mysore classes will be cancelled, and a less strenuous option will be offered. Take rest! (If a full moon or new moon falls on a Saturday, we observe it on the previous Friday. If it falls on a Sunday, we observe it the following Monday.)
