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

winter-solstice-2

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!
