On a beautiful autumn morning, Mrs. Melissa Johnon's Little Dragon three-year-olds enjoyed a special yoga class with Mrs. Hilary McCarthy. Mrs. McCarthy has over 10 years and 200 hours training in dharma yoga. Dharma yoga is a style of yoga that blends techniques from Hatha yoga and numerous other styles with traditional yogic philosophy and meditation.
Starting the class, Ms. McCarthy read "Yoga Game by the Sea" by Kathy Beliveau. The picture book is the first in The Yoga Game Series, and invites children of all ages to feel the waves of their breath, to connect with the joy of a diving dolphin, and to discover the magic of nature. Later, students learned advanced stretches, deep breathing, and relaxation techniques.
