In the spirit of one of my favorite holidays, I present to you, a super spooky, creepy crawly, BOOOOO-tastic Halloween Dance. If you missed the first post in this series, you'll want to have a look at it as it will give you the background you need to best use our newest addition to the Sun Dance Series.
Stretch up high, wave to the moon
(Standing in mountain pose, reach arms up & wave)
Hang down low, tickle the tombs
(Forward fold, reaching down for your toes & pretend to tickle a tomb)
Feet jump back, into your coffin
(Bend your knees, place your hands down and jump or step your feet back to plank)
Belly on the ground, just like a zombie
(Bending at the elbows, lower your body down to the ground)
Look up and HOWL at the moon! OWooOOoooOW
(Press the hands into the ground, to straighten the arms into cobra pose & HOWL!)
Now downward werewolf
(Knees under hips, curl the toes under & shift into downward dog)
& breathe & breathe & breathe
(Take 3 big breaths in through the nose and out through the nose, filling the belly BIG like a balloon when you breathe in, letting all the air out when you breathe out - you can also add in a panting breath like a tired werewolf)
Feet jump up, just like a spider
(Hop the feet up, into a frog squat)
Hang down low, just like a bat
(Straighten the legs, forward fold & let your arms hang loose)
Rise up slow, just like Frankenstine
(Coming to stand, reach both arms up over head & making yourself super big)
Now trick-or-treat pose!
(Create your own pose! Maybe of the costume you will wear on Halloween? Then you can go around the circle and try to guess what each person has transformed into.)
I hope that you and yours enjoy this Halloween Dance! And for this Halloween, I am wishing you a night filled with frights and a bag full of delights. Happy Halloween everyone! Stay safe, be bright, be bold & most of all be YOU (in a super awesome costume of course).
