A Quieting Yin Yoga Practice for the Pisces Full Moon
Sierra Vandervort // September 7, 2022
You can draw on the Pisces Full Moon to strengthen your connection to your intuition and that knowing that lies beyond thinking.
On Saturday, September 10, 2022, the full Moon in Pisces will illuminate the night sky. For modern mystics and spiritual seekers, a full Moon is an opportunity to release samskaras, or patterned ways of thinking that, if left unchecked, keep us stuck in the same cycle.
The Moon is influenced by whichever sign it resides in for that day. Pisces, a mutable air sign, carries the energy of the idealistic dreamer, the poet, and the believer. Inherently mystical and perhaps a little slow-moving, Pisces’ energy challenges us to see life from beyond the illusions created by our minds so that we can create the kind of life we want for ourselves.
You can draw on the full Moon in Pisces to strengthen your connection to your intuition and that knowing that lies beyond thinking. Any practices that help you slow down—such as meditation, pranayama, or Yin yoga—can assist.
This 30-minute Yin yoga class will help you become quiet and tune in. A series of forward folds supported by steady breathing will help soothe the nervous system and release physical tension. Perhaps you’ll even find your grasp on the physical world and what you think you should be experiencing. Instead, ease into a space of surrender to the moment.
Yoga for the Pisces Full Moon
Don’t feel the need to force the stretch or expend effort. Try to make each pose soft. Once you’ve found your desired version of the position, close your eyes and commit to stillness.

For my practice, I’m using my favorite sustainable yoga rug from Öko Living. These mats are ethically hand-loomed out of organic cotton and dyed with medicinal herbs. Plus, they come from a small women-owned business! If you’d like to grab your own yoga rug, use my code THELOCALMYSTIC to save $10 on your order.
