Thriving in Spring:
Renewal and Growth

“The months of the spring season bring about the revitalization of all things in nature. It is the time of birth.”


-The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Medicine

Spring is that wondrous time of year when the earth reawakens. All that has been buried beneath resting and regenerating bursts forth bringing life out into the open. It is the uprising of the yang energy that propels birth, growth and renewal.


In our Spring class, we will meet just one day after the Vernal Equinox when the energies of Yin and Yang, light and dark are equal. We now officially enter the more  yang and active time of the year. A time to come out of our hibernation and partake in the gentle and vigorous energy of spring.


But…….as one of the great jazz standards says, “spring can really hang you up……” the weather is very changeable, the winds and rains come and go amidst new spring growth. How do we still stay covered up, protecting our inner yin, while promoting the free flow of qi and yang energy? Allergies, colds, restlessness are all signs that something is not quite in synch in ourselves.


Join me to explore the power and beauty of the spring season and what we can do to thrive.
