Saluting a Full Flower Moon

I honestly never heard of a Flower Moon which brightened our night skies over the past few days. Native tribes of North America coined the phrase of which the Farmer's Almanac adopted, as this moon phase signified a time of bloom and for planting. Others believe it is a time of fertility, growth and creation. Same thing I think.

A yoga practice that opens up our Sacral (creativity) and Root (grounding) Chakras in our hip region would compliment this concept. A Moon Salutation, Chandra Namaskar is not as common in a yoga class as the popular Sun Salutation, Surya Namaskar, but more of a Lunar Vinyasa/flow sequence. Inhales are always back to center and lifting back upwards with transitions, exhales descending in this sequence.

My Preferred Sequence of Postures (including Sanskrit):

Mountain (Tadasana)

Standing Side Stretches

5 Pointed Star 

Victory Squat (Devyasana)

Triangle (Trikonasana)

Pyramid (Parsvottanasana)

Low Lunge (Anjaneyasansa)

Side Squat Lunge (Skandasana)

Wide Prayer Squat (Malasana)

*Reverse sequence to other side back to Mountain.

Reflect on how you feel as you awakened your body and mind, focusing on the growth as you open up spaces and power up to new opportunities! Moon Salutations may be practiced whenever you feel the need for manifesting your Lunar self.

Tomorrow's holiday allows us to also honor those that sacrificed so we have the freedom to choose yoga as a healthy and personal practice, regardless of other beliefs. Eternally grateful.
