50 children, 1 room and a yoga teacher. The best way to spend 2 hours I know.
I was honored to be asked to teach at the New Mexico Conference for Adoptive Families this year, during which families come to learn about conditions and techniques that can help them live in union with one another, with attention and care and joy. What better place for yoga?
Yoga helps people of every age learn to regulate their own minds, emotions and bodies and creates bonding like crazy - when you breathe together, everything begins to synch. So for our kids' classes we played with simple and powerful ways to release tension, cultivate focus, free the spine, lift spirits, soothe the mind and connect to ones who love us and whom we love.
Here are the poses we used - if you were part of this amazing event, you can use this to remind yourself and practice on your own. Come to class at OMA sometime! First class is always free, and you're guaranteed to leave feeling better than when you came.
