Spring is a time of transition. A time of fertile hope for the future. But first you must plant your seeds and then care for them.
What seeds do you want to grow in your life? Is it better work/life balance? More restful sleep? Resilience to cope with life's ups and downs? A sense of community? Or better fitness? Yoga is a tool that will help you grow these seeds.
