As we step out of March and into April with a fresh new perspective, enjoy all that life has to offer. Look outside and see all the new growth this happening all around you, from the buds of trees, to the new hatching of baby ducklings and birds. Our Theme of the month for April is Blossoming. Our pose of the month is Extended Puppy Pose. This pose is a great way to become grounded, open up and blossom your heart, and lengthen and refresh the spine. Come into child’s pose, lift your hips towards the sky, and allow your hands to slide forward on your mat, resting your forehead on the mat. At Maitri, our goal is to help you find a way to take your yoga practice from the yoga mat to the real world and be able to become constantly aware, mindful and present. During this month, allow yourself to be open to new things. Keep an open mind and an open hand to always have enough time and room to do the things you need to do for yourself. If your hands are full with lots of things that keep you overly busy, you may pass or miss out on the things you are really needing in your life. Be present, be light, be LOVE. Enjoy!
