31 Days of Giving: Day 21 – Gift of the Winter Solstice


The winter solstice marks the beginning of the sun’s journey northward as well as the shortest day of the year for those in the northern latitudes. In the age-old battle between light and dark, the light has triumphed, and the days begin to get longer. To the ancients, the gradual return of the light was a time of celebration and affirmation, bringing the promise of spring and new life.

The winter solstice is interpreted by many to be a time for positive physical and spiritual transformation.

I marked this special day by attending a special 108 Sun Salutations class hosted by Grace Yoga Studio.

I must admit, I only made it through 54 Sun Salutations (one hour of the class versus the full two hours.) For me, that is what I needed to feel energized, grounded and relaxed.

Looking forward to bits of daylight added to each of my days!
