Hi dear, I invite you to share the practice of yoga with me, I want to meet you through yoga and meditation, you do not need experience for this practice

The moon is a manifestation of the force of divine femininity in nature. According to yoga, this force also resides in each of us. While solar energy is warm, active and outwardly oriented, the lunar energy is fresh, receptive and inwardly oriented.
In general, society encourages solar impulses, more masculine.
Yoga aims to balance our lunar and solar energy, but the practice of asanas tends to focus more on the sun. This is because we place more emphasis on greetings to the sun and practices to warm up in order to get a good physical condition. If the moon's divine force could speak, it would remind us of the importance of "reassuring ourselves before we run out." As a mother, the moon can teach us to calm down, listen to our needs and be receptive to change.
Being a practice of inward movement and slightly reassuring, chandra namaskara is appropriate for any time of day, even in the afternoon and evening. If you want to give it a ritual character, you can do it during the phases of the new moon and full moon, or at any stage but outside, under the moonlight. In addition, this sequence can be done by anyone who can do the sun salutation. There are even women who find a calming effect during menstruation or pregnancy.
