Rubbing my eyes in amazement as I sit at my desk, gazing out the window, I see that spring has actually arrived! Watching the pale green buds form on the trees, and the robins hopping around the grass, I feel this primal urge to rush outside into the fresh air and start clearing away yard debris and digging in the dirt to bring some semblance of order to the chaos that remains of my garden. Do you feel the same way? Well hang on a minute…let’s not forget how we did this last year and then hobbled around for a week with intense back pain. If you’ve been reading my newsletters recently, and/or coming to my classes, you know the drill: before you go out and do yard work, do some yoga! Try this back-saving practice before you tackle those gardening chores.
