💐 Ostara is upon us! Happy Spring Equinox. Our wintry time of rest and introspection has come to an end —for now anyway.
🌳 I chose Tree Pose, or Vrikshasana, to feature in my digital Spring collage (pictured above). Tree Pose is a centering & empowering asana. It will help ground you in preparation for new beginnings and change.
It is also a balance pose: The Spring Equinox is one of the two times a year that light and dark (day and night) are perfectly balanced.
💨 When in tree pose, try swaying slightly like a tree would in the wind. Trees that sway are more likely to stay upright than stiff, resistant trees.
How can you apply this Tree wisdom to your life circumstances?
🎨 Go start that house project, or finish that song or painting you’ve been putting off. Whatever is is, use Spring’s ever-growing, warm, sunshiny energy to accomplish your dreams.
🐌 And if it’s in your nature to live more slowly (like me), remember that slow progress is still progress!
Slow progress gets shit done… Eventually.
With love & gratitude,
