“Spring cleaning” isn´t limited to your closet! Celebrate the spring equinox (the first official day of spring) by clearing out what isn´t serving you in your life anymore and make room for what does!

Sun salutations are a great way to de-clutter this spring, since they allow you to take in “prana” (life force) and exhale “apana” (that which is no longer needed).

Practice: flow through the sequence twice, holding the postures longer the first round and for 1 breath the second round.

  1. Stand at the top of your mat, feet hip distance, palms together in front of the heart. Inhale taking the arms up high above the head, palms touching.
  2. Exhale fold forward.
  3. Inhale placing the hands on the knees and lengthening the spine parallel to the floor.
  4. Exhale and step the legs far back on your mat, put the knees down and lower your body all the way down to the floor (elbows close to the body).
  5. Inhale lift up the chest in small cobra.
  6. Exhale come back on the knees and push into downward facing dog.
  7. Inhale step the legs forward
  8. Exhale relaxing the head and neck.
  9. Inhale rise all the way up to standing, arms high above the head, palms touch.
  10. Exhale bringing the palms to the heart.
