moon days

Tomorrow is a Full Moon Day. In the Ashtanga tradition we take rest on New and Full moons. Tim Miller has an excellent explanation for this on his website .
For me, these days of rest are especially important. Even prior to studying Ashtanga, I had noticed imbalances in my emotional state around the New and Full Moons. My cycle is also synced to the full moon.
I have wanted for some time to incorporate a seated practice on moon days so that I am still engaging with my practice. I have also wanted to fast on moon days. Tomorrow I will attempt both. I'll let you know how it turns out.
