Springtime yoga!

When Spring comes around, I become more and more like the lark! I can barely contain my excitement over a future filled with ripe strawberries, the possibility of enjoying a café noisette outdoors, the smell of lilac and sunscreen, but especially getting super sweaty on a yoga mat and trying all those poses that seem so inconceivable in the Winter months (I’m looking at you, Surya Yantrasana.)

“Birds do it, bees do it. Even educated fleas do it.
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love.” —Cole Porter

I rise early and chirp my way through my responsibilities so that I can spend time outside in the crisp air. Seduced by the sunlight, I fall in love all over again with my life, my work, my friends and my practice. Energizing poses like backbends feel more accessible, arm balances more weightless. Let that spirit of buoyancy pervade what you do on and off the mat, leading you to new adventures and growth!
