    Yoga Pose of the Week: Tree

    Breath Play: Leaf Breath

    As you stand tall, reaching out wide in tree pose, imagine the wind is blowing your branches. Take a deep breath in. When you exhale, make a whooshing sound with your breath like the wind is whooshing by the leaves.

    Autumn leaves are falling down
    Falling down, falling down!

    To the ground.

    Autumn leaves are whirling round… whirling all around
    Raking up the autumn leaves… then we toss them high!

    Scarf Rhyme: The Roly Poly Pumpkin

    Tune: The Itsy Bitsy Spider
    Oh, the roly-poly pumpkin went rolling down the hill
    Once it started rolling, it couldn’t keep still
    It rolled and it rolled until it bumped into a rock
    Then the roly-poly pumpkin rolled to a stop. PLOP (throw scarf)
