Had fun mixing it up today!  Teaching the same ol’ Sun As and Bs gets boring for teacher and students (especially this teacher!) so I finally brought in a slightly modified version of Sun Salutations.  These seem to be called “classic sun salutations” so I’m calling them “Sun Cs” (get it! har har)  They went over well in class, as did some new breathing cues from Michelle B.  I borrowed Michelle’s cues about breathing like you’re fogging a mirror, then keeping that same breath but with mouth closed.  Works great and the breath sounded so much better!

Let’s see how these changes go over tomorrow! 😉
