Yoga, the ancient Hindu discipline of controlled breathing, meditation and specific body motions, is a wonderful way of centering the students (and teachers…would you believe Mrs. van Houten and Mrs. Dougan are yogic masters? They are…they can touch their toes and everything!)
Interestingly, we have covered a vast array of topics on this trip thus far, including history and ecology at the museum of civilization, civics at the court, science at the museum, philosophy and physical education at yoga, and we even saw Venus rise over Parliament Hill last night on our way back from the ghost tour…so astronomy – check.
Soon we will depart back to the hotel to freshen up before heading to dinner at Lone Star…build your own fajitas!
Trivia question 2: Which US state is known as the Lone Star State?
