❄️ Where is Spring? ☃ March Fourth Snowga

IMG_02882

NJ weather is the biggest fckboi ever. Excuse the explicit language, but seriously? Spring break is less than a week away, and it starts snowing. I guess Spring needed a break too.

This was on March 4th. I woke up 7:30 to an unusually bright light filling the bedroom. Peeked out the window to find the entire campus blanketed in white. It’s snowing. I was in awe but unsurprised, as the same thing happened March 1st of last year.

I was hoping for spring but nonetheless mildly welcoming towards the unsuited weather solely because, well, snowga pics. ☃

Snow + yoga = not a bad equation.

Pretty scenery can be very spiritually motivating. Makes your temporarily forget all your worries and to just stretch on. Case in point, I don’t think I’ve done the below stretch (standing side splits / standing compass pose) in months, and that morning, it just came easy to me like a hot spoon scooping coconut oil (because I don’t eat butter very often haha.)

Like I mentioned, the same thing happened March of last year, so here’s a “before and after” comparison of March 2016 and March 2015. The photo on the left is from two days ago, and the one of the right is a photo that I took from last year’s blog post.

Not much of a visible change, but I can tell you that I am struggling less on the left picture. 😉 This stretch has gotten so much easier for me after consistent and almost-daily stretching. You can also tell that my right leg is closer and more parallel in the left-side picture, if you look closely.

👉 By the way, if you want to give this pose a try, first start with compass pose in the seated position (google it).

After morning yoga, or snowga as I should call it, it was time to eat breakfast and enjoy the scenery while it last.

Something about a fresh snow fall and fresh strawberries just don’t go together…🍓❄️ Spring fruit amongst a winter landscape. This was a first for me. I’m not complaining though.

Thinking about Spring Break while Spring is literally on break.

Feeling hungry for yo…ga

While the snow’s nice, I glad it’s gone. Not because I hate snow but because I hate dressing for it. Wearing layers of just… stuff is so cumbersome for me, and considering that the nicest items in my wardrobe are all ill-suited for cold weather, I look pretty much like a hobo all winter.

This week, however, is supposed to reach 74!!!! degrees. Can’t wait to be back in shorts and tank tops again! That’s when I’m most comfortable.

    1. Thank you so much Cindy! I used to dance, which certainly helped with my flexibility, but I was now where as flexible as I am today. 🙂 I couldn’t do the “dancer’s pose” as a dancer but could when I started doing yoga! haha
