Moon days 

There are no Mysore classes held on the days of full moon and new moon.

Because human beings are 70% water, we are affected by the moon’s gravitational pull at  different times of the month. On full and new moon days it is advised to take rest from practice.  Practicing asana and meditation over time makes us more attuned to these natural cycles. Full and New moon days are observed as yoga holidays in the Ashtanga Yoga tradition.
