Chandra Namaskar / Moon Salutation


This is a beautiful sequence to practice in the evening, especially if your like me, and your body and mind need a little coaxing into bed at night. The nature of Chandra Namaskar is slow, fluid, calming, and replenishing.  In contrast to Surya Namaskar, Sun Salutation, which creates heat and wakes the body up, Chandra Namaskar cools and relaxes the body.  The following sequence I illustrated was inspired by Shiva Rea’s Moon Salutation, featured in this Yoga Journal article, which I recommend reading! Have a peaceful and rejuvenating evening.
