Spring is on the horizon. The season of new life, new beginnings and birth. With the Easter weekend falling at the end of the month, it only felt natural to incorporate these themes into this months practice.
“Mad as a March Hare” is an allusion that can be used to refer to any other animal or human who behaves in the excitable and unpredictable manner of a “March hare”.
A long-held view is that the hare will behave strangely and excitedly throughout its breeding season, which in Europe is the month of March and extends over several months beyond March.
This odd behaviour includes boxing at other hares, jumping vertically for seemingly no reason and generally displaying abnormal behaviour.
Taking this into consideration, the main idea behind this months practice is really to just be playful. We want to encourage you to jump through your flow (think jumping backing during Sun Salutations).
Using the idea of Spring, we have got various Asanas (poses) to reflect this, think Rabbit pose, Bird, Butterfly (the epitome of new-beginnings)
We want you to be brave. Jump out of your comfort zone. Try something new.
