Moon Days

 
In the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga System it is traditional not to practice on Moon Days – either Full or New Moons. Out of respect for this tradition Infinite Yoga does not offer Mysore classes on Moon Days.
Please Note: All other classes at IY are taught irrespective of the moon cycle.

Rationale

The Moon exhibits a strong gravitational pull on the earth which is most easily observed in the high tides that accompany the full and new moons. As our bodies consist of more than 80% water it is no surprise that we to are equally affected by such forces – although few of us are consciously aware. Generally more energy is available on Full Moon days, less on New Moon days and it is easy for students to harm themselves. It is said that an injury on a moon day takes twice as long to heal.

Special Mysore Classes.

A special and extended Mysore class is offered on all major National Holidays (unless, of course, it is a moon day). Find details here
