Happy Spring! Why, with all the ruckus and hell raising this week, the little seeds and bulbs are probably afraid to blossom. You know that means a helluva lot more sun salutations this weekend, right? Disappear dark clouds!
As yoga folks we practice how to live with both the light and the dark, the good and the bad, as nature intended, and actually IS at its essence, a balance of both. We agree, it’s a total bummer when bad news hits, especially when it’s about your bum being unintentionally exposed (see: lululemon see-through pantscapade) But with the dark we can find the light, shining on yet another lesson so that we may learn, reflect and move on (especially when it’s a bright light and you’re wearing sheer yoga pants over polka dot undies.) This is not a “bend over” test.
