Spring is here with all of its blossoming beauty. Yoga teaches us to be fully present as we shift seasons. This is especially important in Spring, as all the excitement of longer days and being able to spend more time outside can feel overwhelming at times. That’s why we gathered these energy-balancing yoga practices to help you maintain equilibrium.
Do you need to stretch and move before (or after) at long day or work? Or are you looking for stress relief as you wrap up a school semester? Maybe you simply need to feel more alert and calm. Whatever the season brings, these Spring-inspired yoga asana, meditation, and breathing practices will support you.

The balancing actions boost equilibrium and concentration. The twists in this sequence will refresh the body and stimulate the immune system—which can be very helpful with the arrival of Spring and rising temperatures.
