One of the things I love most about my "job" is making exercise fun.
To celebrate last week's Winter Solstice, our group HIIIT workout celebrated all things SUN. We focused our motions on rising, strengthening, and glowing!
The playlist included the following songs:
Soak Up the Sun - Sheryl Crow
Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield
Walking on Sunshine - Katrina & The Waves
Brighter Than the Sun - Colbie Caillat
We enjoyed a simple sun salutation practice to Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" and then held a quiet mediation to the Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun."
After our workout, I read this mediation. It focused on letting your deepest dreams and wishes be enveloped by the rising sun.
At the end of the class, we all felt rejuvenated and ready to welcome the longer days ahead.
