Back to School Yoga

 PLAY, CONNECT, AND GROW!

Hey Lovelies!

Back to school time is upon us!!!  This is always a fun and eventful and sometimes stressful time; trying to get our little ones back on track with a whole new school year.  Juggling new after-school activities, also making our own deadlines for work, while managing the household – it can be easy to feel a little overwhelmed as we try to juggle a whole bunch of different balls. But we want to remind you as you juggle… that juggling can be fun! Imagine being at a circus, watching a clown bringing the crowd to life with laughter and tears as he does his extraordinary juggling act! Let’s try this! Be silly! Be playful! And know that you can create this playful atmosphere in your home!

And hey, let us help you! We have put together a super exciting Back to School Event for you and your little ones on Sunday, September 25th at the YogaWorks in Novato!  This will be a perfect way to set that playful and lighthearted intention and to celebrate your new Back to School schedules! This will be an hour long workshop with fun yoga poses, lots of games, yoga stories, and LIVE MUSIC!!! We will be singing lots of songs from all our albums, Wee Yogis Play, Wee Yogis Connect and our newest album , Wee Yogis Grow. (Here’s the link to the newest album, in case you missed it!  https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/wee-yogis-grow/id1134655202 )

The workshop is only $25 per family so register now because space is limited. And we Hope to see you there! https://goo.gl/1BNhBX

Purpose:

Instructions:
We thought this would be the perfect exercise for you and your little ones in celebration of Back to School!  Not only do we have to get back into juggling schedules, but we’re constantly having to juggle our thoughts as well!  While playing the Little Monkey Song https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/wee-yogis-connect/id965926616 from Wee Yogis Connect, dance around with your little one and be silly monkeys!  And when you freeze, pause and focus, remembering the Second Yoga Sutra about ‘stilling the mind.’  Try to stop the mind chatter and focus on your breathing and be in the moment!

“My mind has little thoughts
That jump around and jump around and jump around
Like little monkeys non-stop
But if I practice yoga, I can make them calm
If I practice yoga, I can make them stop”
