Yoga for Rebirth and Hope

“We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves; otherwise, we harden.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Yoga is an incredible way to renew our mind, body, and spirit each time we step onto our mats. We’ve heard over and over from our students that one of the best benefits of regular practice is the feeling of softening or a sense of being more content. And physically, if we aren’t keeping our bodies moving, we literally become stiff and inflexible.

We’ve just celebrated the Vernal Equinox, which is a perfect time to celebrate the changes in the seasons. When we align ourselves with the cycles of the earth, we harness the strength of nature to become our most balanced, strong selves. Depending on where you live, you’re either eagerly awaiting the flowers blooming or watching the leaves fall. It’s a great time to shed what no longer is serving you and create space to invite in the fresh and new.

Yoga Master TKV Desikachar, said, “Yoga is 99% waste removal.” He taught the importance of removing what he called “the rubbish” from your system before you could truly integrate all of yoga’s benefits. Through a dedicated practice of Asana and Pranayama (physical postures and breath control and extension), individuals can reset and rejuvenate not just the physical body but also thoughts and emotions.

Yoga is a path of self-discovery and it’s the perfect way to shed the habits and patterns which aren’t serving us any longer and rejuvenate our systems. Asanas like Parivrtta Trikonanasa (Twisting Triangle), Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog), and Vipariti Karani (Legs Up the Wall) are excellent ways to give yourself a natural reset. With poses like these twists, forward folds, and inversions, you stimulate your digestive system, soothe your nervous system, and encourage healthy lymphatic flow. You’ll feel energized and lighter on your feet.

This week’s classes offer fresh ways to dramatically shift the way you feel––either helping you relax or feel more energetic. Through mindfully created practices, our talented teachers will guide you through this time of transition to emerge feeling reborn! Enjoy.
