Brownies – yoga for little people

As part of our olympic patches, that we have been working toward for Brownies, there was an option to try yoga. Fortunatly we have a yoga teacher downstairs – I go to the adult classes – who very kindly agreed to take the children in a mini yoga lesson.

 

Here they are getting started, warming up.

 

 

 

I have to admit Gregor was a reluctant participate and at times was keen to join in and give it a try, but at others he obviously felt uncomfortable and just wanted to get up and run around. He did give it a fair shot, so I am very pleased with him.

All upside down.

 

 

I didn’t get a picture of distressed beetle (I was too busy chatting) but it was very funny, they were all on their backs with arms and legs in the arm, waving them about like, well, a distressed beetle.

Karen then introduced some yoga cards, where they could look though and pick which ones they wanted to try. I think Gregor liked picking the cards more than the poses.

 

Katrine choose hibernating bear, where you have to concentrate on you breathing.

 

Here are Sophia and Amelia, I didn’t catch what this pose was called.

 

Then came the relaxing part at the end, this was obviously harder for some that others. Katrine and Amelia looked like they could stay there forever.

 

This was the last activity that we needed to do for our patch:

 

Well, it actually 4 patches in a circle and very large so it won’t fit onto the sash, I will have  to put it on to the badge blanket instead. More sewing to add to the pile, I also have name labels to add onto the taekwondo uniforms.

 

A hug thank you to Karen for helping us with this – it was a great brownie meeting.
