“Since earliest times our ancestors have recognized that just as the moon has the power to move the great waters of the world’s oceans, so she also exerts a profound influence on the lives of all things that live on this planet.” ~ Lori Reid

Traditionally, ashtanga yoga practitioners take rest on the days of the new and full moon. As you begin to practice more regularly (5-6 days a week), an additional rest day can be a very welcome respite. Take rest and enjoy the “day off” from practice.
