Ribbon Tree Yoga
Today we started our first session of Ribbon Tree Yoga!
Ali, our instructor, started the session with a welcome song and warm up exercise to get everybody ready! Then she told us the story of "The Three Little Pigs" and added different yoga shapes for the children to join in with to help act the story out! They learned how to breathe/'huff and puff' like a "Big Bad Wolf", and made shapes to represent the pigs, and act out different parts of the story. It was lots of fun learning all the different moves and stretches!
At the end of each session, the children take part in Quiet Time. They lay on the yoga mats "like a sleepy starfish" and learn how to do special, calming breathing to relax themselves after all the exercises!
Each week, we will be learning new moves for different stories!
