Tonight's blog is dedicated to "peace". The idea of being kind, calm, mindful and thoughtful to one another. We weave this concept into each and every class class by using a few simple (but effective) ways to talk about -- and practice -- peace. Tonight I'd like to share with you just two of the ways that we practice peace in our classes.
4 bead yoga bracelets
If you've been to Butterfly Kids Yoga classes, chances are your child has made a yoga bracelet. The concept comes from the mantra "Peace Begins With Me" and each bead stands for one of those 4 words. Simply moving or touching each bead to the words "Peace Begins With Me" has a very effective calming effect on children and refocuses their energy to the idea of simply....peace. So simple and so effective.
Our Talking Stick sharing circle
From preschoolers to tweens, the Talking Stick is one of everyone's favorite parts of class. "What makes you feel peaceful?" has been our topic this week. Sweet, innocent, and honest. And so simply refreshing in a world full of all kinds of other stuff.
The good that comes from "peace" in our kids is amazing. Thank you for sharing them with me and for giving them the opportunity to practice peace both in and out of Butterfly Kids Yoga classes.
Have a great night, my friends. And let's all hope for a more peaceful world!
