For many of us around the world, it is awfully cold right now. Yoga pants and sports bras are covered by multiple layers of fleece and chunky sweaters. We can either refrain from our practice and hibernate like a yogi bear, or choose to embody the essence of impending spring time.
I chose the classic posture Malasana (Garland Pose) and gave it a springtime makeover — it is now a tulip bulb! This sequence of Malasana variations recreates the blooming process of a tulip, so that we can see the light at the end of the long winter tunnel and remember that when we water ourselves with yoga, nutrition and optimism — we bloom!
