Hatha yoga, the physical practice of yoga, literally translates as HA Sun and THA moon, and yoga is the practice of the union of these two. On Monday 8/21 the sun and the moon will line up perfectly outside, and inside, on the mat we will be practicing sun and moon salutations as well as some fun balance poses to honor this huge cosmic moment and inspire great balance within!
