Attitude and Altitude of Joy at Avondale Elementary~

Written by Cheryl Crawford on . Posted in Elementary School Yoga, Inspiration

We need only to clear the hidden patterns that cloud our innate joy…

or rise above them.

So we can be a source of joy for our children.

We use tools to rid the subconscious of the patterns of performance and the hidden self-concepts that block us from perceiving and choosing our birthright of joy.

So we can model for our children how to focus on sound as well…

We practice consciously relating to our bodies, so our minds can relate to us…

We twist

We laugh…

We practice patience and compassion…

We open and connect..

We listen…

We take our practice back into our classrooms and share our tools with our students…
