It's officially summer! School just ended for us, and the freedom from a daily schedule feels so sweet...
We wrapped up the school year's last Rockin' Yoga assembly just yesterday (and already have a bunch booked for the fall). As it was this school's second-to-last day until summer break, and it was incredibly hot in their gym, I thought the kids might be totally bananas, but they were fabulous. Several hundred kids, kindergarten through 4th grade, their teachers, the principal, two custodians, and a sprinkling of visiting parents danced, sang, clapped, and yoga'd around that gym with us for a solid 45 minutes. We had some lovely Mindful Moments, including a sweet, intention-setting exercise toward the end--in short, we had a ball.
We have a busy summer ahead, and one of the events I'm most looking forward to is the Magic of Music training I'm leading at Childlight Yoga in Dover, NH. We'll have a blast in this workshop, learning how to incorporate rhythm and song into kids' yoga classes, making them super engaging and fun--so kids will run back in the door week after week. I've been working on this training for quite a while, and I can't wait to share it. And it's not just for kids' yoga teachers--parents, classroom teachers, occupational therapists, and anyone who works with young children will get tons of ideas and inspiration to start using right away. All the details are here. Don't wait to sign up--there are limited spaces available. See you out there!
