Tomorrow is the Fall Equinox. The days will begin to get shorter and leaves change color.
I always think of pumpkin spice, football, apple picking, bonfires, apple cider, and getting ready for Hallmark to play Christmas movies and start decorating for Christmas.
In the yoga world the fall equinox is the perfect time for reflection of the year so far, set positive intentions for the rest of 2020 and let go of what's not working.
What have you achieved this year?
What negative thoughts and or patterns can you let go of?
Slow down, get organized, clean up the house.
Let go of thoughts and patterns that are not working.
What are your dreams and goals for the coming new year?
Meditating is also a great way to start the morning or if you have a household of kids sneak away for 5 minutes if you get the chance.
Some yoga poses to do to honor yourself and the Autumn equinox:
Warrior series - Warrior 1, Warrior 2, Warrior 3.
Tree pose (Balancing poses are great)
Supta Buddha Konasana or reclined butterfly
Autumn is another opportune season for cleansing, this time to prepare body and mind for the colder months to come.
What can you do to change your perspective, shift your habits, and take on a new sense of purpose?
