Spring!!! In Like A Lion!


Spring can be one of the hardest seasonal transitions we face in a year. We move from dry, light & cold qualities in nature to wet, heavy and warm.  

We move from an emotional state of hibernation and quiet to seeing people and being seen. 

We move from needing a diet of fat, grounding foods (root veggies & dried fruit) and foods with warming qualities (ginger, blk pepper & spices) to a diet that naturally detoxes us (dandelion greens & other dark leafy greens), fresh vegetables & fruits & 'lighter' spices (turmeric, paprika)

Yoga Lovers in Philadelphia Come Together to Find
Inner Peace at Blue Banyan Yoga

By Paul Rowe, Pennsylvania Homes

Ten years ago there weren't any consistent yoga centers in the Mt. Airy area. Although there were a handful of wonderful teachers living in the area, they all traveled away from home to teach. Recognizing this, founder and director Sophie Simpson rose to the occasion for her community and started Blue Banyan Yoga studio.
