Day 5: Spring Essentials

60 min - Practice


Shake off the heaviness of Winter and flow gracefully into the Spring. In Day 5, Melina leads a dynamic spring cleaning practice to help clear away tension and stiffness in the body. We explore moving in and out of balance poses, energizing modified Sun Salutes, and strengthening back bends, before closing in core warming sequences to keep the energy bright. You will feel strong, focused, and balanced. (Please see Melina’s Spring seasonal wellness blog for more Ayurveda self-care practices, as well as her very own Fennel Bulb Pesto recipe.)

Your Self Care Homework Challenge for Day 5:

  • Dry Brushing: Add dry brushing to your shower routine to cleanse the skin and promote better circulation.
  • Lighten the Load: Reduce clutter in your home and get rid of foods that make you feel heavy.
What You'll Need: Mat, Blanket, Strap, Block

A truly nourishing, inspiring and awakening series of practices.  Grateful to you Melina for sharing. As I was lucky enough to purchase a copy of your  book Seasonal Health and Wellness, I found being able to reference the book a great accompaniment to the practice.  BTW it’s a beautifully crafted book with glorious art  and wisdom throughout. Thank you! 
Congratulations everyone for getting through the 5 days! It was a joy to create this series, I hope you return often when you're in need of a reset or spring energy.
