Rabbit liked doing rabbity things, like hopping and jumping. He liked burrowing and sleeping.
Rabbit ALSO liked doing UNrabbity things. He liked painting, and playing music. It made him VERY happy, and his happiness spread to all the other rabbits. He filled the woods with colour and music.
One day, Rabbit disappeared. The other rabbits couldn't find him anywhere. The woods were grey and dark.
The other rabbits burrowed down into Rabbit's hole, hoping to find him.
And there they found what Rabbit had left for them - all the things to fill the woods with colour and music once more. So that is just what they did. That made them think of Rabbit, which made them very happy.
Hero Pose - Virasana
(with arms extended)
Take your time to breathe in and out through your nose here, filling your belly with air and releasing it.
Tree Pose - Vrksasana
With younger children, we practice being trees on two legs first. Feel for your belly button and rub your hands down your legs and back up again to get a sense of your trunk. This is grounded and still. This is a great precursor to a one-legged stance.
As Rabbit, place your hands well in front of you, and then hop up, feeling the transfer of your weight from your feet to your hands and back, landing on your toes. Repeat four or five times.
Child's Pose - Balasana
Adho Mukha Svanasana
