Good Morning Yogis! Today is the start of the Astrological New Year, and Saucha Day!
We completed our round of practices of the Yamas and now we are moving on to the Niyamas! Last time we practiced the first of the Niyamas, Saucha / purity with our bodies, with a deep clean or pampering self-care practice.
Astrological New Year – Aries Season
I am sorry to be a day late to tie in with our daily practices, but yesterday was the start of Aries Season – Happy Birthday Aries Yogis! This is the start of the year for the Zodiac Calendar, and we are also at the start of Spring! So, with Saucha Day and the start of spring, it is a perfect day for some spring cleaning! For an Aries themed Yoga Practice today, I recommend Nadi Shodhana or Channel-Clearing Breath, which reminds me of the symbol for Aries below!
bONUS dAILY mEDITATION cHALLENGE
We are in the middle of a bonus Daily Meditation Challenge for March! For Saucha Day today, since we will be cleaning our homes my meditation for the day is a Guided Meditation on Organizing our Thoughts.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to practice Saucha / Purity with our surroundings. The Spring Equinox was this past weekend depending on your time zone, so we will focus on spring cleaning for our own homes! Perhaps pick one or two rooms that can use some TLC, and go through the spring cleaning deep-cleaning suggestions for that room!
I personally do not do well when my home is cluttered or disorganized. I need everything to have its own place to go back to, or else I cannot find anything! Pick an area of your home or office to declutter and clean. Get storage bins, drawer organizers, or whatever you need to help yourself keep this area clean and organized going forward. Whether it is your closet, garage, junk drawer, basement, car, or your e-mail inbox, work on bringing Saucha to one of your spaces that you feel needs some TLC.

Please comment and share how you decided to practice Saucha today. I always feel my mind is less cluttered when my space is less cluttered. How did it make you feel? Always remember, be kind!
