Chandra Krama ili Moon Sequence je terapeutski slijed koji prati mjesečeve mijene i godišnja doba, a osmislio ga je dugogodišnji Ashtangi Matthew Sweeney. Povećava fleksibilnost, otvara kukove i područje srca, a može se i modificirati za većinu fizičkih ozljeda te se prilagođava raznim konstitucijama i mogućnostima.
Sat je namijenjen svima, od početnika do naprednih vježbača.
Matthew Sweeney kaže:
"The Moon Sequence is intended to help awareness of the cycles of the Moon and encourage your intuitive faculty. It is not intended to entirely replace your Ashtanga practice or any other practice for that matter, rather to enhance and balance your weekly routine. The Moon Sequence takes pressure off the shoulders and upper body (evidence of the Rajasic elements of the Ashtanga practice) particularly for students who work too much, or too soon on the jump throughs and jump backs. It places more emphasis on the lower body, the hips, and a soft and stable abdomen.
The heating basis of Ashtanga Yoga, in conjunction with the attempt to practice six days per week is inappropriate for most women. It may also be inappropriate for many men, at least long term. This may be a hard thing for some practitioners to accept, nevertheless it is true. Two hours of Ashtanga Yoga, six days per week can cause too much weight loss and can also aggravate joint stability due to repetitious strain. For women, the excessive practice can disrupt your menstrual cycle and can add to difficulty having children. Even if the latter is not what you want, an intensive Asana practice without a sequence like Chandra Krama will usually lead to some kind of imbalance, physically or otherwise.”
