It may not seem like it today, but yesterday showed spring at its best: Mother Nature is busy unthawing from winter and growing new shoots. Guess what? Our bodies are doing the same thing! To help you release the winter (damp/cold) in your muscles considering adding these following asanas into your daily practice until the sun can warm your skin.

Prasarita Padottanasana (standing wide leg forward bend)
Virabhadrasana II (warrior 2)
Garudasana (eagle)
Parsva Utkatasana (revolved chair)
Upavista Konasana (seated wide leg forward bend)
Gomukasana (cow face)
The inner and outer leg muscles are addressed specifically as they relate to the organs most likely to be stressed; the liver and gallbladder. Hold each pose until you feel the muscles release heat.
