This month of June, 2013, we have a super moon upon us, on June 23rd. From what I understand, this means that the moon will be very close to earth, relative to other full moons observed this year. Here in Lake Tahoe, California, we love to paddle board, so, this month we have a, stand up paddleboard yoga sequence, that you can do under the light of this June super moon, for those who don’t mind getting a bit wet once in a while*!
First we start off in butterfly (to read more on how to see gallery of coloring pages), feet together, knees to the side, spine straight, shoulders rolled back, loosen your heart and smile for a few moments, center and listen to the sound of the water rippling against the paddleboard. Once centered, and thankful for yoga time, move onto hands and knees for some balancing fun. Take some time, with torso extended, grounding through the lower legs, hips over knees, shoulders over hands, arms extended, in table (see mini sequences in gallery), find your balance, breath, before doing some cat and cow stretching. Hiss… Moo….
One Legged Dog
Here’s a little sequence I’ve been working on with the kids of the Bijou Yoga Club and also those who attend my class at The Studio Lake Tahoe. I call this sequence Strong Focused Warrior because it starts off building some heat moving from Child and Down Dog into the Warriors and finishes with some balance postures, which tend to really help with focus. Each position should be held for a couple of breathing cycles and the sequence should be done once on one leg and another time on the other leg with some fun frog hops to break it up every once in a while. Because it is designed for kids grades Kindergarten to Grade 2, I like to add a little storyline while I teach this one to cultivate some creativity. Have fun yogaing and coloring with your kids!!
Tips: I find it prints best if you download as a pdf first.
