Since it was clear that most of her yoga students would not be getting up at 3am to see the eclipse, Angela guided us into becoming our own lunar eclipses. We did half moon pose, in which we stood straight and raised our arms overhead. Then bending to one side, and pushing our hip out a little, we formed a (new) moon shape. We “eclipsed” by putting our lower hand up over our eyes—voila, sixteen lunar eclipses in one yoga studio! And lots of giggles too.
I think play is an important part of wisdom, don’t you?
