Hi Yogis and Yoginis!
I just love this time of year. Snowdrops and daffodils are starting to break through, the sun is making an appearance and the days are getting longer. Mumma Earth is coming out of her slumber and everything is alive and renewed once more. I always take this time to reflect on what I want to do in the year ahead.
This year I’m focusing on bringing my yoga and reiki together, to share healing and rest with you all. This week I am doing some Yin Yoga training, along with some Thai Massage, and I can’t wait to share this with you! Think super slow flows, and held poses, for deep release and relaxation. Bliss!I
‘m also going back to my roots this month, starting a new project with New Milton Council to offer Yoga and Meditation for Teens as a way to improve mental health in our young people. With the stresses of school life ever increasing, this is a real area of concern at the moment, and I can’t wait to give back
Ostara celebrates the arrival of Spring and the Spring Equinox. Ostara is named after the Goddess of spring, Eostre. She is the bringer of fertility, dawn and new beginnings. She represents the Earth’s renewal and the life force of spring.
Take time to walk in nature and notice the wonders around you. Cook some traditional Ostara foods (who needs an excuse for hot cross buns and honey cake?!). Or maybe decorate a space in your home with coloured eggs, seeds, feathers and spring flowers. Gemstones such as rose quartz and moonstone are also perfect for this sacred space.
