We are are cultivating our physical and mental strength through coordinated breath and movement. Basically we are using a very secular approach to yoga in which we concentrate on the movement and position of our whole bodies while systematically breathing slowly and deeply. We have learned the easy pose, mountain pose and volcano pose.
We are also working on moving from pose to pose slowly and purposefully. The children are building focus and concentration skills. It is interesting how through breath and movement our class finds these little pockets of silence that are anything but empty.
Here are the children using volcano pose to join hands and connect to each other physically and mentally. I wish you had been there-joy resonated all around us!
