Field Trip Day

Today we enjoyed a Yoga Field Trip to the Zoo!

We warmed up our bodies . . . 

and pretended to be these animals at the zoo!

With yoga, you can pretend to be . . . 
a snake or

turtle or 

a bird standing still or 

soaring high!

Yoga is one way to create peace in our bodies and the world!

See you for Pisgah CDM Yoga in SEPTEMBER!

We will continue the mission to create lives that make a POSITIVE difference!

More Parachute Yoga Fun

We tuned in to experiment which tone lasted the longest:
wood chime, singing bowl, or listening bells?

Connection to last week's yoga time:  What was something George ate in the story Bark, George by Jules Feiffer?
He ate a pig!

We warmed up . . . 
to play "Parachute Yoga!"

"One, Two, Three, Four, flap the parachute some more!
Five, Six, Seven, Eight, pick a toy, and we'll feel great . . . "

pretending to be a frog . . . 

 pretending to be lizards . . . 

 pretending to be a turtle . . .

pretending to be a tiger . . .

 We rested, breathing a toy up and down, like it was bobbing with an ocean wave!

You are right. It is about "timing."🕛🕐🕑🕒🕓🕔🕕🕖🕗🕘🕙🕚🕛

"Hats OFF" to Camp T.A.L.K.

It was HAT DAY at Camp T.A.L.K. on Tuesday so we enjoyed BIG fun yoga-ing with HATS!

We organized our time together by moving through a good story!

Here's our bird in a tree . . .
 We rang the cow's bell:
 and listening bells!

We sang about bananas and
 s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d our side bodies!

We moved like the sunshine

 to build heat in our bodies and keep our muscles warm and safe from injury.

Yoga helps us create peace in our hearts! When we create peace in our hearts, we make the impossible possible!

"Bark, George!"

We tuned in with listening bells . . .

and glitter balls.

We read a fun story and pretended to be the animals in the story.

After working hard,

we rested well . . .

and tracked our progress with stickers.

We wrapped class with this song:
