Use Yoga to Help Your Body Transition Into Spring

Spring has arrived! Sometimes we may find it hard to notice the early signs of spring when Mother Nature sends a few flurries our way, but if you cultivate awareness you will see nature breaking free from the long winter nap. Buds suddenly appear on tree branches. Dainty little snowdrops begin to dance about. While being present in nature, we can begin to feel the earth warming. At this time, water and nutrients begin to flow through the xylem and phloem of plant life. Just as the plant’s transport system begins to flow so too does our bodily humors. Changes in seasons produce changes in the movement of our bodily humors making Spring a time to heat up the body and detox it from its dormant period of winter. Creating awareness for these changes helps one to keep in touch with the flow of energy inside the body and outside in nature.

Yoga PoseThere are certain yoga poses or asanas, and pranayama (breathing practices) that can be added to one’s practice that can warm up the body and begin to release the toxins that have been gained from the winter months.  The process of heating produces sweat to expel toxins from the body. Mostly all asanas tend to heat and cool the body depending on where we direct our energy, but the regions where asanas increase circulation or contracts tend to be heated. Good examples of heating poses are backward bends and standing postures. There are aspects of heating and cooling in pranayama also. Like the Yin and Yang, there always has to be opposites to create balance in the systems of the body. Sometimes we need more heat in the body, while other seasons will require a cooling. The practice of breathing creates heat by engaging the heart-lungs system and the process of circulation. Inhalation tends to be cooling, while exhalation tends to be heating, but if you retain after inhalation this can cause a heating. While holding the breath, air is digested creating heat, then directed and dispersed into area to energize the body. Learning to produce heating and cooling effects together with channeling them to different areas of the body can enhance your practice and cultivate well-being. One must have the mindset to engage in spring cleansing of “Self” as one would empty their homes of unwanted goods.

To discover more benefits to boost your spring practice, I invite you to join us for our Spring Wellness program where we will enjoy Sun Salutations to promote circulation, also twists and agni sara to enhance metabolic fire in the body. Spring a time for renewal, come explore your awakening….
