Yogis can perform the Chandra Namaskara (Moon Salutation) in the evening as a soothing vinyasa designed to harness Chandra's lunar energy and calming, soft qualities. This flowing sequence calms the mind and restores the body.
Chandra is usually depicted as fair and young. He is seen traveling across the sky every night in a chariot pulled by an antelope or white horses. In Hindu mythology, when Chandra was born he nearly blinded the gods with his radiance. He was given the status of a planet and set in the sky.
