Luna llena

Moon days

On new moon and full moon days you should rest and focus on meditative practices.

On new moon days, bodily fluids decrease and joints are therefore less lubricated. In addition, since the body is drier, there is a greater risk of injury during  practice.

On full moon days, bodily fluids are overstimulated. This results in more mobility when doing a pose, which makes the body more prone to injury due to the excessive oscillation of the joints. Note that a full moon injury is more serious and takes longer to heal. Consequently, practice during days of full moon or new moon is not recommended.
