Spring of Transformation

Suzanne Nagel

As we head into Spring, we notice all around us nature's transformation. Fuzzy buds on the trees, the grass begins to come back to life, the longer days. It's a season of renewal.

"To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly." ~Henri L. Bergson

As we head into Spring, we notice all around us nature's transformation.Fuzzy buds on the trees, the grass begins to come back to life, the longer days. It's a season of renewal. And just like nature, humans evolve and transform ourselves again and again through our lives.  Wayne Dwyer says, "Transformation literally means going beyond your form." Through our yoga practice, we transform our Mind, Body, & Spirit; we go beyond our form.  When we show up to our practice, we honor our own transformation. We notice the way our body feels when we begin to breathe into our postures. Through our practice, we release things, negative energies, that no longer serve us, creating space for renewal. Just as the light of Spring rises out of the darkness again and again, so we can embrace the moments of our darkness/sadness/uneasiness that make way for our personal transformation. We can acknowledge that something is happening within us, we might not even recognize ourselves. Just like the caterpillar can not recognize herself in the butterfly, we become changed and therefore, transformed.
