Take Your Body to a Whole New Level of Connection
Being outside when the sun first starts shining again is such good medicine.
Taking it to the next level with yoga in the fresh air, even better.
As I was walking through Ballard on Thursday (admittedly taking no heed to the Ides of March) I saw a young woman practicing yoga in right there on the street.
Technically, on the sidewalk.
With her hands in the dirt of a flower bed, she was calm and strong.
I thought to myself- this girl has got it right.
Chaturanga with the tulips.
What a call to dive into spring, lean back into down dog, hit a strong mountain pose while gazing at actual mountains.
There’s a big, grassy field out at Golden Gardens to stretch out on too if the pace of the cars and passersby seems like too much.
We are so blessed in the Pacific Northwest. Here are some local resources to get you in touch with your body this spring.

Does chronic pain keep you sedentary?

We support you in feeling the vibrant spring energy rise from the earth up through your feet.
Whether you are starting from the ground up like the crocuses with learning how to walk, diving into a new practice on the grass or serving a deep need with street yoga, we encourage you to move more, to breathe deep, and tap into the sunlight.
All the best to you and yours on your healing journey this Spring!
