Little Monkeys & Sun Salutations

Does your little monkey know how to do a sun salutation?

Mine do :)

For the past couple of months I have been facilitating yoga classes with a hoard of about 200 little monkeys. Each time I come, once a week for each class I teach, we start out with the same warm up every yoga class starts with - Sun Salutations. For weeks it has been circus of trying to ensure that they don't step on each others head while they hop back into downward facing dog. Today, well, today was a little bit different.

Today I stepped back and watched 3 classes of about 25 kids each, flow through sun salutations on their own steam. Led by their breath, and awareness of their surroundings and a jazzy little song by Kira Willey called Dance for the Sun. these kids flowed right through two series. (Props to you Kira! Thanks for the great resource!)

I was so proud.

As a growth out of this I have been invited to facilitate workshops for other little monkeys in a couple of other locations through the city. Please check out the Facebook page that I have created for this new adventure :) Please give it a "like" and maybe a share with your friends. Help us grow!!!

Namaste blog-friends!!

Oh! Just as a quick, very adorable aside, yesterday when I was coming home from one of the other locations that I teach at I put on the same song in the car and then looked at the backseat....... weren't my kids doing their best Sun Salutations while buckled into their carseats!!!! AH-DORABLE!!

A quick drop by to let you know.....

...that I have been featured on another site! Woot!

One of my lovely fellow bloggers does a thing she calls Yoga Tattoos-day. I stumbled across this one day while I was poking around on Elephant Journal. So I of course sent her off a picture of my fab yoga tattoo and the story behind it.

She posted it!

And not only that, gave me a little link lovin' to go along with it :)

Thanks Birdie! You are one yogini in a million :)
