Spring Equinox

  • Essencia Yoga Wellness Center 1026 College Ave Wheaton, IL 60187 (map)

Spring Equinox is celebrated as the first day of Spring, when day and night are equal in both hemispheres. All of nature is stirring now and showing signs of activity after the Winter sleep. Buds are bursting on the trees, Spring flowers are coming out and seeds are germinating.

     The power of the Sun is increasing, the days are lengthening and the nights are shortening. We begin to feel empowered to reach out for what we want and to take risks, strike out on our own, go for walks and connect to the Earth again.

    We can use the potential and fertility of this time to create opportunities for positive change in our lives and in the world. At this point we are poised between opposite forces, light and dark, receptive and active, unconscious and conscious, inner and outer. These can be united within us so that we are whole and balanced individuals. This gives birth to actions that come from the heart.

To celebrate this transition into Spring we will move mindfully through 108 sun salutations and then find a few moments of stillness in meditation. After we will join with friends, family and fellow yogis for food, live music, laughs and storytelling. 

*This event is open to yogis of all levels! Modifications can be made so that everyone is able to comfortablly move through all 108 sun salutations.
