As the weather warms up, our bodies are getting ready to shed their Winter layers. Spring, in yoga, is a time of transition where we help the body to feel LIGHTER and more ENERGISED in preparation for Summer. We do this by:

  1. Practising more twists to stimulate our digestive system and support the flushing out of toxins
  2. Practising postures that stimulate the solar plexus chakra, governed by the fire element, which helps to generate heat in the body

 

Here are five poses that you can practice at home to get you on track to your sunny Summer self:

Half Lord of the Fishes Pose (Ardha Matsyendrasana)

 

High Lunge Twist (Parivrtta Anjaneyasana)

 

Boat Pose (Navasana)

 

Revolved Half Moon Pose (Parivrtta Ardha Chandrasana)

 

Bow Pose (Dhanurasana)

 

Happy practising yogis!
