Blossoming Yoga Summer Newsletter

Harmonizing with the season: SUMMER

Here’s how to get attuned to summer’s energy and feel your physical best

The abundance of summer can be really breathtaking: flowers everywhere, leaves blowing in the breeze, warm sunshine and summer showers. It's like a perfect invitation to get into healthy habits for body and mind. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the summer is a yang season, meaning it has an expansive, outwards energy. Most of us naturally feel more sociable and buzzy in summer.  To make the most of it, it’s important to find a balance between being outgoing and joyful with keeping cool and calm. There are plenty of ways we can do this; from eating certain foods to working with yoga poses and essential oils.

Happy teachers' day!

Today is a special day in the Hindu, Buddhist and Jain calendar  – it's Guru Purnima, a special day where we celebrate our teachers. What a lovely thing to do! I wrote a little more about it last year, right here. I send many blessings and lots of love to all of you, celebrating the people who have shed light on your path.
