What the Vernal Equinox means for your yoga practice
"The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing." – S. Brown, poet
(This week's newsletter was composed by our wonderful on-demand teacher and full time writer Elinor Cohen. Check out her Instagram HERE and her amazingly empowering advanced & intermediate sessions on our on-demand archives.)
Equal parts day and night mark the Spring Equinox. Also referred to as the Vernal Equinox, this day marks the official start of spring! This season is seen by many as a time of renewal and transformation. The flowers that have been growing underground can finally begin to bloom, and with that comes the opportunity for planning and progress.
In Latin, the word “vernal” translates to new and fresh. How do we incorporate this into our yoga practice? Perhaps it means refinding your yoga practice. If time on your mat hasn’t been as frequent (read: nonexistent for some) throughout the winter months, the Spring Equinox could be the perfect opportunity to start anew with a refreshed appreciation for all that your body and mind can do.
Those who have been regularly practicing may consider incorporating Kapha qualities into your asana. Kapha is the Ayurvedic dosha most closely linked to spring. Consider leaning into the qualities of moistness and abundance by practicing hot yoga, spending time in a sauna or steam room, and incorporating elements of grounding into your postures.
Other ways to welcome in spring:
Consider this your permission slip to stop and smell the roses…as well as the tulips, daisies, and lilies. Now is the time to enjoy all the abundance that spring is sure to bring.
