Spring Equinox Yoga
The Alchemy of the Spring Equinox
"This is a celebration of balance and union between the Light and Dark cycles of the year, between the Sun and the Moon, between Yang and Yin, Fire and Water. From this dynamic joining of opposites comes new life, transformation and manifestation.
From here to the Midsummer Solstice, the days will lengthen as the Sun returns, bring increasing strength and warmth, and the nights will shorten. This is the beginning of the growing period, the season of manifestation. It is a time for unions of all kinds, for fertility and birth. Out of Union comes new life. This is the natural alchemy of Union inherent in all Life on Earth at this time.
Here at the Spring Equinox, the alchemy lies in the transference of energy from the inside to the outside, from Spirit into Matter. What is within is flowing towards manifestation. Across the wheel at the Autumn Equinox the alchemy lies in the transference of energy from Matter into Spirit, taking the essence of what we have manifested back inside for assimilation and understanding. This delightful balance of our inner and outer worlds flows through our lives as each Equinox helps us to be aware of the natural movement and direction of the cycle.

A practice that blends the Yin and Yang of our yoga. We will ask ourselves questions as we reckon with the challenging balances of life. This is a time of new beginnings, of growth, of actions that come from the heart.
This is also a time of sunlight and shadows. We'll draw the shadows in to play in our practice.
Following our Equinox practice is Yin Yoga. A beautiful compliment to the Equinox practice...come for both.

Sunlight and Shadow
Focus your senses. Face the challenge.
Balance sunlight and shadow.
Blend with the path.
This is the way of the Tao.
