The March Equinox has come and gone. I have really been looking forward to the transition from Winter to Spring. Transition...now there is a word that covers a lot of ground in these days that mark the end of a full year of dealing with the "C" word. At this time last year we heard "two weeks to stop the spread." Two weeks turned into two months turned into a year. Happily, we are beginning to see a transition out of the messy boundaries and extreme polarity that seemed to define(ironically) 2020. But even as we move forward, I sense a watery quality to my perspective, and that is what I want to address this week.
According to the yogic science of Ayurveda Spring is linked to the kapha dosha. Kapha Is a Sanskrit word which translates to "that which flourishes In water" and dosha Is a way of saying "constitution." The qualities associated with this dosha are damp, sluggish, and cold. Sound familiar? I know that I have felt unclear, weighed down, and filled with the urge to clean house, declutter, lighten the load!!! Maybe you have too. So if you are ready to gain energy, dry out the dampness, and move into the season of renewal, make a fresh start, and venture safely back out into community, I hope you will join me for asana practice this week. See you on your mat!!
