New Moon and Yoga?
The Moon symbolizes the divine feminine energy of the Universe, which has been recognized by a multitude of ancient cultures. These cultures recognized the potent influence of the Moon on planet Earth, incorporating it into their lunar calendars, which are believed to have preceded the solar ones.
Aligning our routines to the seasons and lunar rhythms has been practiced for many moons and is bound to cultivate a deeper connection to the natural laws and lunar energy.
To live in harmony with our Mother Nature is to appreciate and connect with her rhythms especially New Moon and Full Moon.
The New Moon represents the beginning phase of the monthly lunar cycle. This energy now is powerful, strong and you may feel tired and worn out as energies of change and transformation boil up. Be gentle with yourself in the way you move, expend your energy, communicate or think, allowing time for ritual, meditation and relaxation during this New Moon phase.
