Working Together, Working with Fear


We yoga-ed the story Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson today!
The animals work together as they share space on the broom, kind of like the animals on the ark learned to work with Noah when we read We're All in the SAME Boat by Zachary Shapiro last Wednesday.

Here's some yogis having fun with this story in past Octobers:

Here's a version of Mrs. Broam ("Mrs. D") teaching this story:
We did "eagle mudra" instead of "stork pose" today.  We also swapped "dragon's breath" for a growling "high lunge!"

When something is SCARY . . . take DEEP BREATHS to calm and be strong! We breathed with Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster.👾

We're ALL in the Same Boat!


We read a great book by Zachary Shapiro today: We're All in the Same Boat!  All the animals thought it would be great fun to take a trip on an ark until it rained and rained and rained some more.  They blamed Noah for not having the good time they anticipated . . . Noah reminded them, "We're All in the Same Boat!"  The animals listened and turned their attitudes around.  We practiced listening with a singing bowl today! When you listen well, your ears are ON, your eyes are ON, your brain is ON, your heart is ON, and your body is calm and your mouth rests.  Yay for Yoga at PCDM! #cooperation #positivethinking #beagoodlistener #youcandohardthings
