The theme of this week's gentle flow practice was phototropism - the phenomena in plants as they naturally grow and bend towards the light. We embodied this theme through our sequence, from small contained poses like the initial potential of a seed to more expansive side-bends and opening movements as we continued to grow.
This meditation is designed for the energy near the Spring Equinox when we exist at a very balanced point between Yin and Yang, light and dark. This time of year, we may naturally feel drawn to declutter our external environments. Let this meditation help you to internally declutter your mind & physical tensions, like opening up the windows and letting in the fresh air.
