Full Moon/Mood + Yoga

With the full moon lunar eclipse upon us it is said that if you practice Ashtanga yoga that the day of a full moon is a holiday where you will find most Ashtanga classes cancelled. The honour behind this understanding comes from the moon affecting tidal rhythms, and with humans been made up of 70% water, the moon is said to have a similar effect on our internal tides, thus affecting our energy levels, joints and the likelihood of injury. 

Do you practice yoga on a full moon day, or perhaps you notice a shift in your thoughts or mood around a full moon? The spiritual research foundation makes a very interesting article with relation to the full moon and its frequencies. 

"The moon frequencies have the capacity to make the thought frequencies from the impressions in our sub-conscious mind to surface to the conscious mind. Once in the conscious mind we become aware of them. Thus one will be influenced as per the predominant impressions in one’s mind.
On a full moon day as the moon frequencies are more active, a heightened activity of the mind is observed as explained above. Depending on the types of impressions from the sub-conscious mind that are activated, the heightened activity can range from heightened random thoughts to heightened mind activity of specific thoughts."

One might say that these are moon myths.... So the saying goes "it must be the full moon"!

Whatever you wish for, I wish for you too, and pray that your hopes, dreams and wishes come true.

NEW post! Yes!!
The first photo was taken over a year ago now when I lived in Bondi Beach, Australia. I've since moved to Bristol, UK (see second photo) and do very much miss the beach but I'm loving the fresh air and divine countryside literally at my doorstep. Its about making the most of each moment, and giving it what you've got. 
And then remember to breathe....
