Moon Salutations, called Chandra Namaskar, are a
variation of the classic Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar) and are
designed to be relaxing and restorative for the body and mind. The Moon
is of particular importance in Hatha Yoga as "ha" means sun and "tha"
means moon. Hatha Yoga then is meant to bring unity and balance between
these two opposites. While the sun it warming and invigorating, the
moon is cooling and calming and these salutations are meant to
celebrate and promote all that the moon has to offer.
