Feeling Spring in Our Bones


The birds singing at sunrise and the slant of the sun both tell us that the season of new beginnings is upon us.

We are shifting from hibernation to rebirth.

But the dampness associated with spring has the potential to leave us congested in both our respiratory and skeletal muscular systems. 

In the emotional body, we can feel some crankiness as we try to release deep-seated emotions so the new beginnings can take hold.

The Kapha dosha (scroll back to my September post if you don't know what your dosha is) is made up of water and earth, which can accumulate in the body over winter.

You may be way into juice cleanses, closet cleaning and full scale expulsion of the darkness of winter.  But if your bones are talking back to you amidst the dampness of April consider this one sequence (in or out of the chair) to build a little heat and oil the joints and emotions.
