Their mom set a chime alarm to sound twice a day, once mid morning, once mid afternoon
They call this the "Yoga Barb Chime", understanding it is to remind them that I am thinking of them (I AM!)
As they remember that I am connecting with them through the chime, they are also reminded to connect with each other.
1. They CONNECT
2. They choose a BREATH PLAY
3.. They repeat AN AFFIRMATION and/or
4. They do a YOGA POSE (of their choice)
5. They RELAX and/or
6. They RESET their MINDS and HEARTS
7. They TALK about FEELINGS - perhaps how they relate to the pose they chose, thinking of characteristics of the pose they could apply to themselves or perhaps how they felt before their connecting time and/or after this calming time together. This is an opportunity to talk about how this new lifestyle is playing on their mind and in their hearts or anything else that might be sitting with them.
This is a perfect yoga class in a nut shell. Done twice (even once) a day it is as good as any 30, 45 or 60 minute class done once a day or once a week. It is enough. It is perfect.
The children are my greatest teachers.
