Spring Yoga Health and Healing – By Kyczy Hawk

This has been a tough winter. Fall was rough but winter took the cake. The weather in all realms of my being was turbulent and stormy. There were changes in my psyche, in my profession, within my family, in society and in the meteorological atmosphere. Rebalancing was a constant practice and I have really exercised both my “let it go” muscle as well as my “acceptance” brain.

What guides me through? My recovery and my yoga practice. They both take time, they take effort and they take “refreshing”. To restart and re-establish my ardor for recovery I go to new meetings, I meet with new people and, if I am fortunate enough, work with a newcomer.

To rekindle my love for yoga I do the same thing: take new classes, meet with other teachers, do more research and take on new students.

This time of year, Spring, my physical yoga practice calls to me in more fervent ways. I am stagnant and have a pelt of lethargy left over from the winter months. It is time to “wring” out the old with a series of twists, to rekindle the internal flame of action and inspiration in standing poses. It is time to get the chakra of action and mobility into more conscious balance and to move.

As spring is about rejuvenation and blooming, stepping out and carrying on a new yoga sequence can get your juices flowing.

Here is a short downloadable practice to stir up the action of growth and rejuvenation while remaining grounded. Please click here

  1. I really like this. I tried to get the download but it failed because of safety issues for some reason. Is it possible for you to send it to me?
    Keep writing and sharing wonderful messages of recovery. Thank you Kyczy.
