Yoga in third-grade
I ADORE yoga and try to get into class about four times a week. I am a member at a gym and you get unlimited classes for pilates, yoga, zumba, and body flow. There are other classes too... but I am not much of a Body Pump kind of gal! My yoga instructors always have the best, voices. They mention "falling into the Earth" and allowing "gravity to pull you down" many, many times in an hour. Who wouldn't want to peacefully fall into the Earth while doing exercise?!?! However, when I attempt to mimic their voices I sound like a creepy robot, according to my boyfriend, as opposed to a beautiful yoga goddess. Oh well... you win some, you lose some.
I stuck to simple poses, like mountain pose, tree pose, forward fold, and ragdoll. The kids were really into it, although they were rather silly at first. However after a few poses while I acted very serious, they became quite calm and seemed content with the movements.
PS... have you heard of the book Dancing With Cats?? It is from the international bestseller book, Why Cats Paint. Thanks to Amazon, this book can be all yours. Click here... I promise it will make your day.
