From Dawn to Dusk and Everything in Between

Today we had a very busy, but fun, day! We woke up at 5:50am to admire the sunrise, our first yoga class was at 6:30 am. 

After that, we had our silent breakfast and we definitely noticed a lot of things with out other senses that we normally wouldn't. Shhhh....

Later, we has an introduction to meditation where our instructor at Kripalu taught us how to meditate and that every meditation has its own intention. 

Then we did a Qigong flow class which was very interesting, and in which we felt energy going through our bodies in different points. Quigong is sort of the Chinese version of yoga. 

We learned about our three dan tians and the energy meridians of our bodies.

Did we mention that the food at Kripalu is amazing?!

After lunch we did colorful sand mandalas which were so much fun, and we had a little competition between our two groups, which pursued very different styles of design. When we were done, we threw them into the air and the sand dispersed all over the place.

 Later we had a vinyasa yoga class and we ended up our day with a relax and unwind yoga class. What a full and nourishing day!
