Our Intro to Yoga

Leave a comment

We had a really neat opportunity yesterday.  Our class was invited to join the 2nd grade for a yoga lesson with Mrs. Ruiz.  Although we didn’t stay for entire class, we did learn many poses including The Warrior, The Dog, The Cat, a Sun Salutation, and The Camel.  We also practiced The Lotus position, but Mrs. Forst had a really difficult time with that one!  The children seemed to like The Warrior pose the most.  They thought it looked more like a surfer.  Ask them to show it to you!
