Equinox: The Power of Change and Transition

Equinox: The Power of Change and Transition

"It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and the seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But, there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. " - Alan Cohen

Happy Equinox yogis! Whether you are celebrating the budding and blossoming of Spring in the Northern hemisphere or accepting the shedding of layers that personifies Autumn in the Southern hemisphere, we are all in the midst of powerful transition.

When we align our own intentions and goals with nature’s rhythms and patterns, we strengthen our positions. We’re all living this one life on the planet together and the earth impacts everything we do, from how we feel physically to our thoughts and emotions. Why not harness these seasonal shifts to reflect, set intentions, and implement change?

We know it’s easy to settle into patterns and become comfortable. Sometimes feeling comfortable becomes a rut, however.

If you need the extra push to climb out of a rut or a case of the “blahs,” you’ve got the support of Mother Earth beneath you. And we’ve assembled some great new yoga classes to assist you on your journey through transition.

If it’s Spring where you live, it’s an excellent time to plant seeds for growth and intentions in any areas of your life you would love to see come to fruition.

Celebrate the longer warmer days, increased sunshine, and the feeling of possibility that accompanies seeing new flowers bloom to the surface. A regular yoga practice encourages you to be a gardener and nurture your own personal expansion. Now is the time to maximize it.

When the nights grow longer and the wind begins to chill, Autumn is the perfect time to shift your awareness inside, focus on releasing what isn’t serving you any longer, and rest more.

A vital part of our personal evolution is tied to letting go of what no longer serves us and creating space for the new. When the leaves fall from the trees, there’s a waiting period through winter until they bloom again. When we accept that we can slow down and rest, we’re being like the trees and flowers: preparing for new growth.

This week, align yourself with the Equinox and remember change is power. Press play on one or all of these classes today.
