Consider Stillness on the Full Moon Solstice


Here’s a short, sweet post from my yoga teaching blog. Consider chilling out today.

Wholehearted Yoga

This morning we marked a full moon, and tonight, we’ll observe the Summer Solstice. The last time this happened was in 1967, during the “Summer of Love.”

So I do like the advice above from @mysore_sf to rest. The full moon in summer lends enough energy on its own, and the solstice does even more so. Our inclination, observing and sensing these energies, is to expend a lot ourselves. We can really go off the charts with that energy, and should balance it with more resting, cooling practices. Minimize those things that aggravate pitta doshacaffeine, alcohol, activity, and strenuous practices.

Remember that the sol–stice refers to the stillness or stillpoint of the sun.
