Sunday, July 11th, New Moon ~ Studio Closed

Tomorrow, Sunday July 11th is the New Moon. The studio will be closed.People often ask, why moon day? What is the significance? This tradition is maintained in the Ashtanga yoga method as taught Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India. The moon has a strong effect on the movement and flow of water on the planet. Since our bodies are in large part made of water it is safe to say that the moon has an effect on us. There is a transition of movement flow from one direction to another at the point of the New and Full moon. It is believed that the best way to accommodate this shift is to “take rest.” Happy Moon Day!!
