The spring equinox is celebrated as the first day of spring when day and night are equal in both hemispheres. All of nature is stirring now and showing signs of activity after the winter sleep. Buds are bursting on and seeds are germinating. Weather is beginning to warm and we see nature’s bounty re-emerge. Birds are chirping, bees are droning, and an abundance of blooming flowers signal the end of winter. The power of the sun is increasing, the days are lengthening, and the nights are shortening. We begin to feel empowered to reach out for what we want and to take risks, strike out on our own, go for walks, and connect to the Earth again.
Even though our minds are eager for the warm weather ahead, our bodies are oftentimes weighed down by the sluggishness of winter. Luckily, there are many ways to detoxify the body, mind, and spirit from the sludge of winter. Exercise, especially yoga, cleanses the body by stimulating the lymphatic, circulatory, and digestive systems to rid the body of toxins and waste. Why not join one of our exercise classes or the yoga class?
