With a joyful but hectic holiday season coming to a close for many of us and a New Year Approaching what better way to begin your New Year with your children/students or your whole entire family then with a Yoga Relaxation Exercise.. Let the intention for peace and unity, tolerance and love in our world overshadow any intentions for turbulence, hate and divisiveness that may exist in our world this new year and every day of our lives.. Namaste….
BELOW SEE FREE NEW YEAR RELAXATION EXERCISE
Have the children (and you) lie down on their backs
Tell the children to take a
deep inhale and tighten the muscles in their entire
(Start with the feet, the legs, the hips, belly,
chest, neck, shoulders and arms,
don’t forget the elbows– Exhale and relax.)
At this time you can play one of your favorite
relaxation songs or see the relaxation exercise in my book: “Stories That Come Alive Through Yoga”
When you are ready, have the children sit up and
put their hands at their hearts.
Have them repeat after you:
“May there be peace in your heart
May there be peace in your home
May there be peace in your school and
May there be peace in the world”
You may end by sitting in Butterfly Pose with children asking them: And who does peace begin with?
Children and you sing:
Peace begins with me, peace begins with me
That is where peace begins, peace begins with me
(sing to the tune of Farmer in the Dell)
