Feb. 24, 2012 - The Kid's Way Yoga Class (APARIGRAHA)

When I heard my 7 year old daughter Leila exclaim, "Aparigraha!" in the shower as she was encouraging her younger sister Luci to share a toy with her, I knew that last week's class was a winner. - Eli Gregg Instructor

We are going to repeat the theme of Aparigraha/sharing because that is one of the easiest ways for children to learn how to create harmony in their world. Aparigraha is the sanscrit term asks for the control of greed and the encouragement of sharing. We will learn our word and what it means, chanting, headstands, back bends, chance for your child to briefly lead the class, Apargraha Frisbee Art project, and a closing chant that promotes peace and harmony. Love is far more important than money. If you have spiritual knowledge, share with others who are in need and with those who wish to have it—those who are receptive. Give, share, love.

 The Kid's Way Themes that we have covered so far:

Ahimsa: non-violence
Santosha: happiness/contentment
Samadi: the light within/pure bliss
Prana: our life force
Apana: letting go of what is not needed.
Shauca: purity, cleanliness
Satya: Truth, honesty
Aparigraha: Control of greed, sharing
