Yoga full moon

The days of full moon hold various beliefs and significance for most cultures and across spiritual and scientific realms. In Buddhist ideology, full moon days are important as a time for religious reflection. Some cultures see the moon as a feminine (yin) symbol, representing the rhythm of time.
