Yoga for Moon Salutations


Moon Salutations, also known as Chandra Namaskar, is a sequence of yoga poses that are intended to soothe the mind and calm the body. Here is a step-by-step guide for performing Moon Salutations:

  1. Begin in Tadasana (Mountain Pose) at the top of your mat.

  2. Inhale and raise your arms overhead into Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute).

  3. Exhale and fold forward into Uttanasana (Standing Forward Bend).

  4. Inhale and come into Ardha Uttanasana (Half Standing Forward Bend).

  5. Exhale and step your left foot back into a lunge, coming into Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge).

  6. Inhale and raise your arms overhead into Anjaneyasana.

  7. Exhale and bring your hands down to the mat on either side of your right foot.

  8. Inhale and step your left foot up to meet your right foot, coming into Uttanasana.

  9. Exhale and come back into Tadasana.

  10. Repeat steps 2-9, this time stepping your right foot back in step 5 and then stepping it up in step 8.

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your Moon Salutations:

  1. Breathe deeply and focus on your breath throughout the practice.

  2. Move slowly and with intention, allowing yourself to fully experience each pose.

  3. Honor your body and its limitations. If a pose doesn't feel right for you, modify it or skip it altogether.

  4. Practice in a quiet, dimly lit space to help create a calming environment.

  5. Consider adding some gentle music or aromatherapy to enhance the experience.

Remember, the most important thing is to listen to your body and practice with mindfulness and intention.
