The new moon is when the night sky is dark and the light of the moon can’t be seen. It’s a time when the energy current is below the surface, and in comparison to the bright and vibrant energy of a full moon, the days around the new moon are quiet and contemplative in nature.
Nature moves in rhythms and cycles. Nothing in the natural world is free from this law, though mountains and stars have longer life cycles than butterflies and summer flowers. And though we know this fact of life, most of us don’t live in a way that honors it. We often act in a way that is out of alignment with natural rhythms and as a result may find ourselves reaching for chocolate and caffeine on a new moon or winters day thinking we are tired when instead our energy is simply not as extroverted as at other times. Assuming that we can maintain the same pace at all times is a sure fire way to experience imbalance, frustration and a sense of disconnect.
Through a variable yoga practice we can cultivate certain asana's that can allow us to synch up with nature’s rhythms so that we can experience more natural energy, inner support, and inspiration, in our lives.
