Yoga Education for Children, Portugal
|Recently we organised a full day program with Yoga class, lunch and treasure hunt in the forest.Here is a summary of the story we used.
There was a group of young children who loved to play near the forest. They used to often listen to the story of a treasure which was hidden in the forest. Nobody could ever find it! Nobody could even enter the forest for it was guarded by a big monster! “What does he look like?” children used to ask. But the answer was always a deep silence.
So the children went to ask all their neighbors (the Turtle, the Rabbit, the Snake, etc) advice about how to approach him. Then the night came. They lit a candle and slept….. and a fairy came to them. “If you want to pass the monster and enter the forest you have to make a present for him”. And so it was. They made him a present and entered the forest.
In the forest, after overcoming some obstacles, they came upon a Saint doing meditation near the cave. The Saint taught them meditation and gave them the clues to find the treasure. They were all so excited and happy when they found a “real Saint” there!!! The treasure was, of course, LOVE!
To see the children having fun and learning Yoga and Meditation is indeed a great blessing!
