I hope this finds you all well and enjoying this incredible time of year wherever you are!
Yaaaay…..we are just days away from celebrating and embracing the Spring Equinox, this year it falls on March 20th, it brings a welcome balance of day and night. Its a wonderful time of fertility, regeneration and rebirth of life and energy. It is alway a time of hope and optimism and of renewed confidence. During this time we should experience an awakened sense of identity, making it easier to release old patterns and awaken new ones.
Celebrate, renew and cleanse for Spring by setting an intention for change. Plant a seed to symbolise new beginnings and your new intentions, pull a weed to symbolise the end of winter and anything you want to put behind you! Cleanse with your practice, see my suggestions from last months news and add to this by cleansing your Chakras with your breathing. Focus on your intentions with deep inhales while exhaling old thoughts, negativity and anything you feel ready to let go of to make way for new beginnings.
Spring Cleaning! Cleaning your space = Cleaning your energy. Clearing your clutter = Clearing your mind. remove any negative energy accumulated over the winter months and prepare for the positive growing energy of Spring and Summer!!
As many of you will know, I have the personal pleasure and honor to lead this years Yoga Mala, which is 108 Sun Salutations. It is being dedicated to a children’s orphanage in Nepal. From 6pm onwards at Watton Youth centre. Come and join us and celebrate, it is accessible to all levels. If you would like further information and guidance please get in touch with me.
Stand firm on the axis
of your two arches,
breathe deep of the damp earth
where roots have spread under old leaves.
Raise your arms slowly,
face turning like a daffodil
still wet from night’s dew
until sun’s beams
warm your coat of many colours,
and eyes open, astonished
at the golden glow
pulsing to arms
which lift weightless,
drawn by heart’s gravity
to salute the sun.
Before I close this months page, what better way to start the arrival of Spring by enjoying this Detox Water: 2 Lemons, sliced, 1/2 cucumber, sliced, 10-12 mint leaves, 3 litres of water. Put everything in a large jug or bottle and infuse overnight to create a natural detox.
Blessings to you all for the most wonderfully happy and positive Spring Equinox!
