Winter is naturally a time of hibernation. This Perth winter has been especially cold and long it feels, and I know for one my favourite places in the mornings is often my warm bed, and in the evenings a nice herbal tea, wrapped in a blanket on the lounge. Winter naturally encourages us to hibernate, the cold weather, rain, it’s not often pleasant to be outdoors. Maintaining a dedicated yoga practice, or any form of exercise regime can easily be waylaid by the desire to simply be at home being quiet.
If you think about it – in terms of our evolution, it makes sense that we want to have the warmth and safety during winter. In our cave people days winter was a time when we would stock up on food, warmth and spend extended periods of time in our cave hibernating. We see the same in the animal world during winter.
Spring, however has arrived, and we have glorious days ahead. Spring is a time of rejuvenation, growth and revival. So too it is a time when we change our patterns, spend more time outdoors and often recommit to the outside activities we love, like yoga. If you have lost your yoga (or pilates, crossfit, running) mojo this winter, here are some great tips to get the most out of embracing Spring
Enjoy your Spring everyone!
