Traditionally Ashtanga yoga practitioners rest on new and full moon days. These rest days are in addition to your weekly rest day. You can read more about why here

As I teach Mysore on a Saturday, and living in a commuter town, I am aware that many of my students are unable to come to class during the week and/or practice 6 days a week. For this reason I still teach the Saturday morning class on moon days.
