"The time between Yule and the Spring Equinox was called the Cleansing Tide. It was a time of thinking and planning, of assessing what had been achieved and what unfinished work could readily be cast away. It was a time when all things were washed clear, or swept away. In ancient Rome, February was cleansing time, "the month of ritual purification." During the season, a new tide of life started to flow through the whole world of nature, and people had to get rid of the past and look to the future. Spring cleaning was originally a nature ritual"

Energize Your Yoga Practice
I'd like to encourage you to have the confidence to create your own home yoga practices.My own yoga practice helps me to draw on a deep source of healing nourishment and self-nurturing. It is from this rich pool that I draw the strength and succour that I need to support myself, and in turn to give back to others.
Imbolc is a good time to look creatively at your own home yoga practice. What do you need to do to revitalize your practice? Spend some time creating yoga practices that you are going to love to do each day.

The Dance of Life
In the beginning was the Tao
Which gave rise to yin and yang,
Sunlight and shadow,
And the energy
Of all existence.
Yet beneath the dance of life,
The Tao is always One,
Mother of ten thousand things,
Source of all creation.
The Wisdom of Tao
Combine the assertive strength of
With the heart of compassionate
In this valley of possibilities,
Live your life like a river,
Strong and true,
Renewing your spirit
With the power of nature,
The wisdom of Tao.
