A sequence to energize and align your body and mind with the lunar cycle.

The moon has been worshipped and honored for centuries for its profound effect on our lives. It is no wonder that yoga has adopted many asanas and sequences that are in alignment with the lunar cycle.

The New Moon is a time to set your intentions and plant the seeds for what you want to grow in the coming month. It is a time of new beginnings, fresh starts, and growth. The New Moon is a time to focus on what you want to create in your life.

The Full Moon is a time of fruition, of seeing the results of your hard work. It is a time of celebration and release. The Full Moon is a time to reflect on your progress and what you have accomplished.

The Crescent Moon is a time of transition, of moving from one phase to the next. It is a time of balance, of finding equilibrium between the light and the dark. The Crescent Moon is a time to reflect on the past month and to plan for the next.

The following sequence is designed to align your body and mind with the lunar cycle. It can be practiced on any day of the lunar cycle, but is especially powerful on the New Moon and Full Moon.
