Theme: Satya ~ truth, honesty
Story: The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss
Pose of the day: Vrksasana ~ Tree Pose
“With strength from the Earth, and light from the stars, I share my goodness with friends near and far“
Then we warm up our bodies with a series of poses called Surya Namaskarasana, or “Sun Salutation.”
In honor of our main character who performs an impressive balancing act in today’s story, we practice several balance poses including Vrksasana (Tree Pose), Virabhadrasana III (Warrior 3), and Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose). To recreate an intense moment in the story, we attempt a creative new partner pose called “Boat in a Cake” pose. It turns out there were good reasons why no one had ever tried such a pose.
After a restful savasana, we begin our story.
“Breathing in, I feel joy. Breathing out, I share my goodness.”
Today’s story is a classic! A boring day is turned upside-down (along with most everything in the house) by a fun-loving visitor.
Ok! Now go find a special item that makes you smile and get ready for YogaYama!
~ Would you tell your mom what happened?
~What might happen if you did?
~What might happen if you did not?
~Can you think of a time when you told the truth even though it was hard to? How did you feel afterwards?
