Moon Praying Yoga (Full Explanation of Moon Praying Yoga)
The moon has a special place in many cultural traditions . People regard the moon as the incarnation of goddesses, respect and worship them devoutly. According to hatha yoga theory, man also has the embodiment of Goddess power. People’s sun power is enthusiastic, active, and extroverted, while moon power is calm, accepting, and introverted. In social life, one should show the power of the sun and the power of man, because social life pursues external success rather than inner enlightenment. Although the purpose of hatha yoga is to balance the power of the sun and moon against Tairen, the asana practice of hatha yoga still leans towards the power of the sun, such as sun worship and physical exercises.
If the moon energy in us could speak, she would kindly remind us, “Calm before impulsiveness”. Like a mother, the Moon teaches us how to be at peace, how to listen to our inner being, and how to accept impermanence. By practicing moon worship, we can feel the power of the moon in nature and harness the power of the moon in our bodies.
