How to Learn Yoga in the Summer Months
So, you started practicing yoga for the first time a few months ago, and you’re loving it! But to keep your practice interesting and keep your friend feelings grounded, you’ll need to start developing some rituals—like coordinating your daily routine with the moon cycle.
Okay, here’s the deal: The moon is full, or over, as you know it, between May and September. That’s the summer season, when it rises the brightest each morning, then sets around 8 p.m. The moon, like you, tends to have more energy in the mornings. So to align your practice with your moon cycle, keep practicing until the moon is barely visible (in the sky) in the morning, then turn back around until it’s at its peak in the afternoon.
Mishap Your Practice to the Phases of the Moon!
First comes the morning (or the first hours of the day): This is the “off” phase of the moon.
Once you start practicing with full energy, you’ll need to switch gears quickly to enjoy the awesome energy of the rest of the day.
Here’s how to sync your practice up to the moon cycle:
You can start your day at 7 a.m. and experience the wonder of yoga, until 9 a.m., when you return to your buddy levels and make sure everyone is happy to practice.
Since you’re moon full, you’ll begin practicing at 8 a.m. on the following day. Set your watch, then mirror your practice in the open sky.
Drop into the class at 7 p.m. because tonight is the furthest the moon is in the sky, and you’ll need to focus and move quickly.
Sunset, the highest point in the sky, approaches after 7 p.m. Although you might not feel like practicing while the sun is still shining in the East, taking that gentle practice into the open sky at sunset will work wonders to increase your endorphins and keep your energy levels high.
