As we approach the shift from the yin season of winter, where we were more focused on gathering and storing our energy, feeling more cocooned and quiet/introspective, it is being called upon us to map to our external environment which is preparing for Spring. We may have noticed the flowering of plants, spring buds, more birdsong in the AM,and longer sunnier days. Spring is this season of possibilities, of potential a great time to begin new projects and clear the cobwebs of Winter. We also need to think about “lightening our load”, meaning allowing the body to spring clean, so eating more greens and foods rich in colour, reducing our alcohol intake and allowing ourselves a fresh start. this will assist in feeling more energetic and flexible so we can engage more socially, in our practice and in in our bodies capabilities to feel strong and supple.
