April, 26 and it is Moon Day. Like yesterday, I took a Power Yoga Class. This one was immediately after work, at 5.30. I had to rush to be on time and it took me at least ten minutes to let go of the work vibe I had around me.
Before starting, the teacher talked a bit about Moon Day, about the phenomenon of the new moon. I was somewhat surprised as this was an advanced class but there were still some students who looked as they were Earth People and no one had ever told them something else is out there.
New Moon is about low energy, about taking rest and to be more introspective. The asanas we did were not easy, but the teacher said we had to watch ourselves, to take our practice slow and mindful. She had put some music on and this was not yoga music. At some point I heard Eddie Vedder. I noticed myself listening to the music and trying to find out which song it was. I didn't recognize it. To me as a Yogi the best song of Eddie Vedder is of course Just Breathe.
