|The ancient traditions of yoga suggest that spring is the perfect time to embark on a more physical yoga practice. Now is the time to increase your movement and embrace the lighter energy that the season brings. Our digestion starts to get a little more support from the warming climes so we can begin to benefit from a holistic gut healing practice full of good seasonal foods, appropriate exercise, and lovely light & sunny vibes. With these ingredients the beneficial flora can grow inside as well as out!
So even if the gardening is still a little out of bounds for fear of frosty – and not yet green – fingers, take the opportunity to plant the seeds of good digestion, and begin to stimulate that digestive fire with some light and warming yoga practice when you can.
Try a warming pranayama (breathing) technique to start you off such as Surya Analoma Viloma. Simply close your left nostril and breathe through the right, and imagine a warm golden glow fill your entire body. See what happens!
