Before you begin this session please read and listen to our Introduction to Yoga with We Be Kids.
In this session we will be inspired by Eric Carle’s The Very Busy Spider and learn how to move ourselves into Spider Pose by the end of the story. Spider has the wonderful ability to focus on what she needs to get done and not get distracted. A skill I am sure many of us would find useful. The other animals want to play with Spider but she is very determined to finish spinning her web, so much so that she misses owl praising her beautiful work at the end of the day because she has fallen asleep - it was after all a very busy day! Enjoy this session and have fun being all the different animals during Spider’s web building day.
Whilst using this yoga resource to inspire learning, know you are helping you and your family's wellbeing:
1) Get Active - yoga may not be running a marathon but regular practice will reap many benefits to the physical and mental bodies. Enjoy moving the body through lots of postures as you build Spider Pose.
2) Keep Learning -use this session to learn new yoga postures for the body and the mind- like Spider Pose. 3) Be Mindful - Listen carefully to your own body each time you practice and consider what you might like to learn from Spider and her dedication to completing her beautiful web.
4) Practice Kindness- In yoga only ever practice with kindness to yourself - EVERY practice is different and our bodies will feel the postures differently every time. Yoga should never hurt. Look after yourself - there is only one of you.
5) Think Community - Practice this session with your community at home and spread the word online.
