@yogi_peanut The light of my inner self shines through my heart. The light of Divine wisdom shines through my heart. Day 10 of #21daysofmudras Mudra of Inner Self Place the tips of your fingers & the balls of your hands together. Then put your thumbs together. Hold your hands in this position in front of your forehead and look thru the opening as long as you can without blinking. Next, hold your hands about an inch below your chin. It is said that this is the place where the soul lies, your hands forming a temple around it. With each exhalation, whisper “Hoooo.” Sitting in half lotus, lotus, cross legged, etc…our body forms triangles everywhere. The triangle symbolizes the Divine, which is now being expressed throughout the body🔼✨ Love to you all! I can’t believe we’re basically half way thru! 💛🙏💜 #yoga #yogawithpeanut #yogaoffthemat #beuniquelyyou #liveyourtruth #livelikeawarrior #chooselove #meditation #mantra #mudra #justbreathe #floatnabove #beyou #betrue #bepresent #mudras #intention #blessed #grateful #intuition #affirmation #inspire #inspiration #balance #healing #onelove #universallove

Genius hour Learning from failure

Some classrooms are adopting “genius hour” time — inspired by Google’s 20% time idea — to allow students to pursue passion projects. But how do students spend their time? 140305114338-05-genius-hour-horizontal-gallery
Here, fourth grader Mushkale Uppal collaborated with friends to build a robot for genius hour in Robyn Thiessen’s class at Green Timbers Elementary in Surrey, British Columbia. “It opened up my creative side,” he said.

Mushkale’s classmate Kiran Rai says she learned an important lesson while attempting to make cookies in the shape of sunglasses for genius hour: It’s OK to mess up.Screen shot 2014-03-17 at 6.37.32 AM She also discovered she could learn from mistakes to improve her technique and that she could pivot — that led to these tasty cookie flowers with licorice for stems.

“I asked my students what they liked about this project and the most common response was that they loved the freedom to explore what they are passionate about instead of just doing the work they have been assigned by teachers. That freedom is what motivates them to explore big ideas and take ownership of their learning.Screen shot 2014-03-17 at 6.39.53 AM
