This day marks the shortest day & longest night of the year.
The sun arose at 08.04am this morning. The Winter Solstice marks the turn of the wheel into a new season & with this comes the re-emergence of light. Which we welcome with open arms. No more leaving & returning home in the pitch black dark, light is coming & nature will begin to flourish again. It is out of the darkness that flowers eventually emerge, babies are born, inspiration is sparked, ideas are nurtured.
On Sunday, I held a Winter Solstice themed event with Yoga In The Barn, Cheshire. It was all about drawing forth what you want in your life right now, setting clear intentions & having a clear path for the new year. Mixed in with post yoga treats such as christmas crumble, mince pies, teas, juices, gingerbread & mulled wine. There was such a powerful energy in the room & a beautiful union of like-minded people flowing beautifully in yogic dance. I felt honoured to guide the practice.
