New P.E. unit?
This summer, I’ve been learning a lot about REST and combating the rapid, unforgiving pace of our modern world, which I have allowed to dictate my life for far too long. With that being said, my chief concern is about our kids growing up in this world. Thankfully, I’ve found retreats in such mindful practices as walking, meditation, yoga, and writing, but I long for our kids to know and enjoy the same opportunities to unplug. In early July, one of my dearest friends Jill subscribed me to Yoga Journal, and each day I receive all kinds of interesting info — from poses and practice to insights and whole-food recipes. The other day, an article involving yoga and kids intrigued me, and made me wonder about teaching yoga in schools — a new P.E. unit, perhaps?
As a follow up, a few days later…I’m still thinking about this obviously, and I stumbled onto this resource: http://yogakids.com/
Lord, have mercy. If I feel the need to RELAX and UNPLUG after these exciting, but very busy first few days of school, I can’t imagine what our kids are feeling and will feel!
