Traditionally there’s no practice on full and new moon days

In Astanga yoga tradition both full and new moon days are observed holidays from the practice. The moon’s relative position to the sun is seen to create strong energetic experiences and patterns. Both the ancient and modern yogis have experimented that full and new moon is an unstable time for the body and mind, and attuning to certain natural cycles helps us to gain greater harmony in our lives.

As of now, we teach also on moon days, but we strongly encourage regular practitioners to build up sensitivity to pay attention to what works and what doesn’t – on moon days and every day! The moon day is generally considered to be the 23-hour period before the exact moment of either a full or new moon.
