March Rolls in Like a Lion…

Oh the month of March! As a child growing up on the east coast, I remember this being the longest month, right in between the excitement of the winter holidays and the promise of a bright spring season ahead. As a teenager, I would dye my hair during this month to offset the teen boredom I was facing (remember Manic Panic!!). Now, as an adult & Mama, the month feels like it’s already flying by. I feel so blessed to be surrounded by children who remind me to be present, to enjoy this moment, and that yes, March has 31 long, beautiful days! This month also reminds me of the phrase, “March rolls in like a lion, and out like a lamb.”

In like a lion and out like a lamb…sounds like our yoga practice! For children, we jump, sing, sometimes cartwheel to our mat. I’m overjoyed to hear tales of the day, exciting family & school news, and songs that get stuck in our brains (what does the fox say?!). As adults, we often come to our mats with our To-Do lists, our anxieties, our hunger (I can’t wait for a giant sandwich after savasana!), or whatever is on our minds. And Out like a lamb…children transition from “silly” to “calm.” Adults connect within. Sweet, sweet savasana…ready and centered for the rest of our day.

:: Spring Themes! Oh how I love spring, such a time of renewal & cleansing. As Yogi Playground flows with the seasons we tap into how the earth is changing around us. How are our senses telling us that the season is changing? We’re also approaching Earth Day! Stay tuned for fun Earth Day events with Yogi Playground.

:: Girl Scouts! Did you know one of my favorite things to do is bring yoga to Girl Scout & Daisy troops? Seriously. I LOVE the opportunity to connect with so many strong, intuitive young ladies. Themes from past events include The True Meaning of Friendship, Self-Respect, Self-Care, Healthy Lifestyle Choices. Let me know what you are thinking for your troop!

It’s Dr. Seuss week! All week long we’ll be practicing yoga inspired by our beloved author. I sure hope Sam-I-Am doesn’t ask me to try green eggs & ham! But then again, you never know until you try, right?

Love, Beth
