Next week the Gleason Family YMCA is having a Halloween night for kids. I will be teaching Pirate Yoga! It will be a 20 minute yoga practice using Hatha Yoga but giving the poses pirate related names. For example, Downward Dog with be "shark," as it looks like a shark fin. The series of poses will be a story of sorts.
Last week I taught a Pirate Zencycle class! The 1/2 hour spin was to pirate music, I spoke in pirate and we dressed like pirates. During the 1/2 hour yoga practice I used pirate names for the poses and set it to a story of sorts.
