Make the theme/quality MATTER to the students

Contextualize

This quality will enable us to _____________in our lives.

Build experiences around the theme/heart quality, linking it to the students’ lives

Using gratitude as an example…

-what are you grateful for in your life? hug into that with strong legs

-charge your legs, grateful for the stability that your legs bring you

-draw the shoulder blades firmly onto the back, creating a strong container to hold all your gratitude

-widen the thighs back, opening to receive gratitude

-be grateful that that pose is over! 🙂

-reach your arm forward toward someone you are grateful for

-turn back in your twist, looking into your past, then carry gratitude to your past forward into your present as you untwist

-what is your relationship to gratitude? notice what attitude you carry towards it.
