As you probably already know, spring is a season associated with change, cleansing, and new beginnings. The equinox happens when the day and the night are at equal length, and the sun's journey to get there signifies the universe's journey as well.
The spiritual meaning behind this time of year has been around for a very long time. The equinox was once considered the beginning of the new year. In ancient times, people performed rituals during the equinox to cleanse out old energy in themselves and in their homes.
The significance for spring is that daylight starts to increase, so the earth is about to tip over to more light, like an illuminating, sublime reminder that light is returning and always does, to earth. Therefore, the spring equinox represents new light and life, new beginnings, seeds, and path.
So join us at this beautiful and auspicious time of year to welcome in the light as you open your body & mind gently with an awakening yin practice and plant your sankalpa (intention) for the rest of the year into every cell of your being.
