Day 3: Spring Blossom

60 min - Practice


Celebrating the energy of Spring. In Day 3, Melina offers a standing practice to invoke a sense of vitality and possibility in the season of rebirth. We start rooting into our intention in soft standing meditation, and move into dynamic warm ups to explore range of motion in the joints. We play into fun standing sequences to elongate the spine, challenge the balance, and find stability in the hips and legs, and enjoy creative Sun Salutes to warm the body, before closing in core work and stretches to help the heart area blossom. You will feel expansive, strong, and invigorated.

Your Self Care Homework Challenge for Day 3:

Today the focus is on bringing more mindfulness to your afternoon:

  • Mindful Tea Break: Pause for a cup of herbal tea in the afternoon giving you time to gather prana.
  • Creative Moments: Take time to brainstorm or for other creative work.
  • Nature Walk: Step out in nature to reclaim part of your day and clear your mind.
What You'll Need: Mat, Blanket, Strap, Block

Thank you Melinda, I am really enjoying this series. It feels like such a kind and compassionate way to treat our bodies, which is kind of obvious when you think about it, but we sometimes ignore our inner wisdom!

Perfect primavera practise Melina , thank you so much! Almost everything seemed fresh and new so i felt focussed throughout even as i wobbled!
Wanted to share that last night I went to bed at 11, probably the earliest Ive been in bed for at least 40 years !!!  I just decided to give it a try....and slept peacefully till EXACTLY sunrise - what a glorious sight it was too as I stood at the window sipping my lemony water!
Have a wonderful day!
I"m taking in all your beautiful comments and am delighted by the ways you are caring for yourself and waking up to your inner wisdom. I do hope these classes become some of your favorites! I think of "spring" as the morning time of each day, so these types of practices can be great to get your day started and put you and in touch with what matters.  Thanks for being part of the community!

Thank you for this lovely transitional practice. I really appreciate the reminder to graciously pace our way into the the new energy of this Spring season. There’s definitely a tendency to feel the need to “get on it” so to speak! And it’s so easy to overdo ourselves out of the gate. I love your voice, your pace and your creative movements. With so much gratitude 🙏🏻

These practices really nourish me and help ease the (sometimes uncomfortable) move or unwillingness to let go of season to season shifting.
