today’s theme: noticing emotions & sensations
Hello and welcome to “BE KIND. BE MINDFUL. BE OK.” This yoga resource is made especially for Girl Scouts.
If you missed last week’s post about using our breath as a resource to calm our bodies, you can read it here.
This week, I’ve put together a yoga class for you to do from the comfort of your own home. You don’t need any special equipment or clothes. Just find a space where you can comfortably move around. The theme for the class is noticing our own emotions and the sensations in our own bodies. The class is 20 minutes long. I’ll begin by talking a little bit about the theme and then lead us through some yoga movement. I encourage you to stick it out for the entire class and see how it goes!
Let’s dive right in…
Great! How was that? Did you notice a change in your emotions and sensations as class went along? Did any self-observation surprise you?
Emotions arise from situations and how we interrupt those experiences. See throughout your next week what emotions arise for you, and what sensations you notice in your own body. See if maybe you can simply observe, notice, and then let go of any unwanted emotion.
Let me know how it goes! You can always send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (this email comes to me, Miss Melissa, and Hannah from Girl Scouts Lakes and Pines). Let us know how this program is working for you! If you have questions or suggestions, we’d always love to hear them!
Take good care of yourselves, Girl Scouts. I’ll talk to you next week!
