The horse chestnut tree is looking fabulous as it casts its dappled shade into the studios and reminds us of the passing of the seasons. The newly formed buds have literally doubled in size every day over the past few weeks, and now the leaves are at their most luscious!!
This reminds us of the upward moving and expansive energy of Spring, and just as nature expresses determination and creativity we too want to engage in activities that require this determination and creativity.
We feel the excitement of the summer approaching and begin to plan our summer activities. It is a perfect time to spring clean the body as we do our homes, and it’s a good time to let go of stimulants such as coffee and alcohol and use the lighter, longer and warmer days to fuel ourselves instead.
Our lives change in many ways with the seasons; our food, hobbies and of course our yoga practice. The outside grass begs handstands and cartwheels, more dynamic postures and energetic classes (of course only if it suits you).
We hope you find lots to feed your creative Spring energy.
As ever, the details are below and in the calendar – please check it!
With best wishes from Sharon and all the teachers and therapists at Dorchester Yoga and Therapy Centre
