Summer represents the outward expression of energy, expansiveness, movement and activity. It is the most yang of the seasons and is ruled by fire. Life and energies are at their peak.  It’s a great time to immerse yourself in the joys of Yoga & connect with sunshine, beauty & others. Life is for living and the time is now.
