On Wednesday, PCDM and Kids Yoga explored a wonderful story about the life cycle of an acorn, Little Acorn by IglooBooks. Nutty Mrs. Broam was able to share a copy with PCDM classrooms and young yogis at Pisgah, thanks to the generosity of retired Lexington One Administrator, Loretta Arnette!!💗 Everything has a beginning, middle, and end -- every thing, thought, experience, feeling -- and we explored the life cycle of the acorn to practice this idea.🌳

Nutty Mrs. Broam
An acorn is a seed. Be as small as you can be in SEED POSE.
Be a "baby tree" or seedling by balancing on your knees and reaching to the sky!
Now grow into a mature oak by balancing your TREE POSE. Try the pose on both sides of the body. Be curious -- Is one leg stronger than the other?
Feathered guests may build their nests in the branches of the tree. Work WARRIOR III with both legs. Use your wings to help you balance.🐦
Spiders🕷 may build webs🕸 . . .
Beetles🐞 may scurry by . . .
Owls🦉 may "hoot" from the tree's branches at night!
We sang a song about the squirrel that hid the acorn in the ground!
And that's the end of this week's yoga blog post!
