Today is Easter Sunday, so I wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter.  It’s currently 35F but sunny where I’m staying, so it sure doesn’t feel like spring yet. Easter fills us with hope, joy and warmth. It is a time to get together with friends, family and loved ones to celebrate this joyful time.

Oestre/Easter, is a time of rebirth and fertility, symbolized by the “bunny”.  The popular colored eggs representing the sunlight of spring.

Yogaverse:

We’ve had our spring vernal equinox meaning the day and night were of equal length since the sun was sitting above the equator. The days are getting longer, they will slowly warm up at a snail’s pace [at least where I’m at]. It’s easier to feel more motivated, joyful inside and with a happier heart. The winters are hard to get through and really exacerbate depression, so I am grateful for this new equinox granting us more sunlight and generally warmer weather.
