Summary:

Whether we realise it or not, everyone and everything, from the rolling of the tides to the balance of emotions in our bodies, is influenced by the moon. Moon Yoga is your guide to harnessing the moon’s energy to lift and balance your life through mindful movement.

Yoga is both a physical practice and a spiritual one. Expert yoga instructor Lisa Hood provides insightful guidance on how to shape a spiritual practice that channels the moon’s energy to stimulate vitality, creativity, productivity and relaxation. Whether you work through a whole flow, focus on one pose, or just work through a breathing exercise, aligning your body and your mind in a moment of spiritual connection with the moon can help you centre yourself, even if just for a few moments in the middle of a busy day.

– Learn about how each phase of the moon brings a different energy into your life.
– Move with the moon with yoga positions and flows that draw on the energy of each of the nine lunar phases.
– Adjust your practice seasonally with practices for each of the full moons of the year, such as the Wolf Moon, Flower Moon and Corn Moon.
– Find rituals to carry you through the cycles of the moon.

With uplifting mantras and rituals to provide grounding, strengthened intuition and mindfulness beyond your physical practice, Moon Yoga gives you all the tools you need to move in sync with the moon.

Review:

Moon Yoga is an absolutely lovely little book, inside and out, which will give any reader a sense of calm and an idea of how to incorporate the phases of the moon into their yoga practice. I’m a big fan of yoga and its benefits but let it fall by the wayside a bit in the last couple of years, mostly due to not being able to attend classes because of the pandemic. However this beautiful little book has given me a boost to start practicing a bit of yoga again. It is filled with gorgeous and clear little illustrations to demonstrate the poses alongside instructions on what to do and why. It also includes journal prompts and other really helpful little tidbits that make it a useful and easy to digest read. I absolutely recommend to anyone who has ever thought about taking up the practice of yoga or indeed anyone who already enjoys yoga but wants to learn a bit more about the moon’s influence.
