Delighted to announce that my first Storytime Yoga class in Japan is happening Saturday, January 13 at 11 am at the Lingua World Cafe in Osaka. This cafe doubles as an English language school via interactive programs and is super kid friendly!
The Queen of Bohemia, moi, will be there, teaching peace, health and literacy via body and word - storytelling and yoga! I will be using some hand-made oshie kamishibai and matryoshka nesting dolls for visual aids for English language learners to tell a folktale I have reworked. Listening to the entire story first produces concentration and imagination as well as the experience of the story. Re-enacting the story with yoga provides total physical response!
If you're in Osaka, join me! I will be posting the lesson plan online this week and will be available to premium content subscribers! Amazing how the universe works! I was an ESL tutor years ago in elementary and high schools, and in college I even was an English Conversation partner for Japanese students! Follow your bliss! Excited!
