The Story of Yoga

Greetings from the library!

Last Tuesday, we had Meg Trelease join us for The Story of Yoga. Meg is a very gifted story teller and yoga instructor. She had the children mesmerized with the story of Hanuman the monkey god and his superhuman strength. During the story, the children learned yoga poses like downward dog, upward facing dog, chair, tree, warrior and corpse pose.

At the end of the storytelling, Meg had the children learn parts of the Hanuman Chaleesa. We had the pleasure of a young boy reciting a part of the Hanuman Chaleesa in sanskrit from memory. We ended by listening to the Hanuman Chaleesa sung by Krishna Das while lying in corpse pose. Check out our yoga storytime pictures!

See you at the library,

Miss Glynnis

I wish they would have had yoga story time when I was little!
