"Spring cleaning" isn't limited to what you're doing with your closets. Celebrate the spring equinox by clearing out what isn't serving you in your life anymore and making room for what does.

“It's the perfect time to declutter, become empowered, and create intentions for what you want," says Kim Purdy, a vinyasa flow teacher at Purple Yoga in Fullerton, California.

Purdy created this 7-pose moving meditation to help ease the transition from winter into spring. “These poses are a variation of a Sun Salutation sequence,” she says. “Sun Salutations are a great way to declutter this spring, since they allow you to take in 'prana' or life force and exhale out that which is no longer needed. Every salutation gives you the opportunity to give and receive.”

PRACTICE Flow through this entire sequence twice, holding each pose longer on the first round and for just 1 breath each on the second cycle.
