Julia will be reading The Three Little Yogis and the Wolf who Lost His Breath. Why this book? Julia loves how it emphasizes the importance of feelings and how we can use our breath and movement to help move through all the many feelings that we may have.
Julia plans to read the book and teach some Yoga poses to everyone who joins her.
Once upon a time there lived a wolf who lost his huff and his puff. It was a BIG, BAD problem!
One morning, the wolf came upon a peaceful little yogi doing sun salutations. The wolf wanted to huff and puff and blooow her hut down into a big pile of straw. But instead the yogi suggested, “Let’s meditate on that."
Soon the wolf met a second yogi, and then a third. He may have lost his huff and puff—but with the help of three new yogi friends, can the wolf find his breath?
