Practice Notes2007. 3.22

Moon Days
We don't practice on new moon and full moon days in the Ashtanga tradition.
On these days, we rest and observe how nature has both obvious and subtle
effects on all living things.
We become more attuned to life's nature cycles.

Women should not practice during the menstruation period.

As with any physical movements, the practice of yoga should be approached on
an empty stomach (at least 3,4hours after the meal, it depends on the size
of the meal).
Consuming water only prior to and post class, not during the class.
