Mali Monkeys Around

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

It was early in the morning when Mali woke up from her sleep. She had been curled up in her nest, high in the trees when she heard Rafferty crow Cock-a-doodle-doo, Cock-a-doodle-doo he crowed every day. Everyday Mali woke to the sound of Rafferty's crow. It was kind of comforting to know that he was always there, ready to wake Mali so she could enjoy her day.

Mali stretched, rolled her shoulders and yawned loudly. She took her tail and hooked it round the branch above her little nest and started swinging through the trees. Mali giggled and swung from branch to branch, she was heading to her favourite tree, the big old Mango tree on the edge of the forest. Mali loved the lush fruit and the way eating Mangos made her feel. Bursting with life and full of energy.

Arriving at the Mango tree Mali could see that there were other monkeys clambering through its branches, they were all there for a wonderfully healthy breakfast, fresh mangos. Yummy!

"Hello!!!" called Mali.

"Hello" they all cheered back.

Mali grabbed a big juicy mango and delicately ate it, licking the juice off her finger tips. She reached for another just as a mango flew past her. Her little friend Max had thrown an over ripe mango at Mali hoping to make a big mess! mali stopped reaching for the lovely ripe mango and grabbed an over ripe one and threw it back at Max as she called out "heads Max!" All of a sudden all the monkeys in the tree started to throw the over ripe fruit at each other. The squealed and cheered and soon everyone was all sticky with mango.

"Lets go get cleaned up Max" said Mali and they all flawed Mali down to the creak where they washed off the mango and made themselves clean.

"That was fun Max" said Mali "but next time you'd better watch out cause I'm ready for your Monkeying Round!" she exclaimed.





Mali's Monkey Business

Tuesday, October 20, 2009

Mali was monkeying around and showing off she would do the hardest yoga poses in front of the other forest animals and then she would show them how to do them.

They would all line up to learn Epona Yoga Poses from mali. The Elephant liked the Cobra pose but Mali thought that he looked very strange doing it!





Mali and the Circus

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

One day there was a travelling circus passing by the edge of the forest. Mali could see al the animals and thought it would be fun to swing by. She swung on the vines and landed on top of the circus truck that was carrying the monkeys and other small animals.

They chatted for quite a while and Mali decided to visit the big town that was nearby with the circus and catch a ride back the next day.

When they arrrived at the town it was all activity as the circus tent went up and the towns people came out to see what was about to happen. Up and down the main street went the parade. Mali rode on the back of an elephant with another monkey and they performed the tightrope which was a rope held between two elephants trunks!

"Wow you have great balance Mali" said the circus monkey. Thanks said Mali it comes from doing yoga and swininging in the trees.

That night there was a big performance in the Big Top Tent. Mali went in the ring with the clowns because she was too scared to go with the lions.

After the show they all ate left over popcorn.

The next day as the circus went back past the forest Mali left the truck and said goodbye to her new friends.





Mali and Sunni go to the farm....

Monday, September 14, 2009

Mali was hanging around in the trees on the edge of the forest looking at the beautiful day and she decided that it was too nice a day to stay home, so she clambered down out of the trees and raced across the fields that lead to the farmyard.

On the way Mali talked to Mr Sun, “Hello Mr Sun, isn't it a beautiful day?”she asked.

“Yes it is a lovely day, I plan to shine all day and blow away any pesky clouds” replied Mr Sun.

“That's great Mr Sun, cause I want to run and play all day in the sunshine with everyone at the farmyard” said Mali.

Mali could see the farmyard and the park, “perhaps I should see if Sunni wants to come too, what do you think Mr Sun?” Mali asked.

“What a wonderful idea Mali, I'm sure Sunni would like that” replied Mr Sun.

So Mali raced off into the park looking for Sunni, he soon found him and they both decided to go to the farmyard together.

When they arrived at the farmyard they could see that the farmer had been very busy ploughing the fields.

Rafferty was very pleased to see them and showed them all around the farmyard and he even gave them some farm fresh free range eggs to take home when they left.





Mali, Jumbo and the Banana

Friday, August 28, 2009

Mali has lots of friends in the jungle. There are lions who are Mali's friends even though they are sometimes a bit scary. Lots of colourful birds and elephants.

ali was swinging through the trees and she spoted her friend Jumbo the elephant. Jumbo was walking calmly through the trees holding a bunch of bananas in his trunk. Mali scurried over to Jumbo and said "Hi Jumbo, nice looking bananas you've got there! Do you think I could have one..."  "pleeeeeaaassseeeee" she begged.

Mali loves bananas and just seeing them was making her hungry. Mali knows that bananas are a very healthy snack that not only tastes good but makes her feel full of energy too.

"I suppose so" said Jumbo, "but can I have the skin back" he asked.

"Of course you can have the skni silly" said Mali as she clambered over Jumbo to get to the bananas.

Mali carefully pealed the banana and ate it and then handed the skin back to Jumbo who prompty ate it too!

"Waste not want not" said Jumbo.






Mali Goes Running

Friday, August 21, 2009

One day Mali was hanging in the trees on the edge of the jungle so that he could see out of the trees and into the fields. It was a beautiful day in the fields but up high in the trees it was quite cool. and the sunlight was filtered through the beautiful leaves.

Mali decided that it would be fun to run in the fields so she jumped out of the tree and started to race over the fields towards the park.

Mali got very excited when she could see Sunni liying near his seadlings. "Sunni, Sunni" she called. Mali was quite breathless!

Sunni got up and raced to meet his friend Mali.

"Hello Mali" said Sunni, "You're puffing hard... Have you run far?" Sunni asked.

"Yes all the way from the forest!" replied Mali.

"Why don't you sit and rest a for while and I can show you my seedlings" said Sunni.

"Great" said Mali as she collapsed into a heap on the ground.

Sunni lowered himself down onto the ground and stretched his legs out behind him and pushed his arms out below him making him stretch his back as he faced the sun.

"That looks beautiful Sunni" said Mali, "I think I can do it too!" Mali copied Sunni and they were both in the Yoga Cobra Pose. This is one of the poses that you can learn with Epona Yoga.





Magic at the Seaside

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Mali looked up and saw a rainbow in the sky over the forest, but there were no clouds. It was very strange. She walked to the edge of the forest towards the park and could see two rainbows in the sky. Now that was very curious.

Mali decided to ask someone about the rainbows. "Mr Sun" she called.

"Hello Mali" said Mr Sun "what can I do for you?"

"Can you tell me why there are so many rainbows in the sky" asked Mali.

"There's a fairy in the garden at the seaside who made the rainbows, she's magical" replied Mr Sun.

"I must go and find the fairy" exclaimed Mali. "I love rainbows and magic" she giggled.

Mali raced off to the seaside only to find Tula with a cloud for wings, feathers in a headband and a lovely shell necklace. "So you're the magic fairy!" exclaimed Mali. "I love my rainbow, thank you for sending it to the forest" said Mali.

"You're welcome" sang Tula. As she spun around so that her wings flew out behind her. Then  she sank to the ground and pushed herself up onto her shoulders and thrust her feet in the air. "I love being a fairy! I am magic and I can do lots of things!"

Tula was in a shoulder stand with her wings floating just above the ground and the her necklace shining around her neck. "Mali copied Tula and said "I am magic too!"

The Epona Yoga poses are detailed in the Epona Yoga Adventures of Sunni, Tula, Mali and Rafferty book with complete instructions and the benefits of each pose.  Each pose is illustrated on teh Epona Yoga mat for easy reference. You can buy the mat, book and DVD online.





Mali makes for the forest...

Thursday, May 28, 2009

After spending a night at the beach with Tula Mali decided to go back to the forest where she could swing through the trees....

"Goodbye Tula" she said. "Bye Mali, I'll come and see you soon" said Tula.

Mali left the beach and went up the path to the park. She saw Sunni who was doing his Yoga and waved. "Hi Sunni That looks like fun" said Mali as she copied Sunni so that they were both kneeling in the Cat Flex pose. They were on their hands and knees with their backs arched up to the sky.

"Oh that does feel good" said Mali "what else can you do?"

Sunni showed mali how he could slide his knees back and lie flat on the ground with his elbows up in the air and his hands on the ground. and lifted his head up slowly rolling up one vertibre at a time. And then rolling back and as he breathed out Sunni made a sound like a snake "SSSSS".

Mali Copied Sunni and they lay there on the ground pretending to be snakes for quite a while. Mali was getting restless and said "I should go Sunni, I will be missed in the forest if I don't get back soon"

"Bye then Mali" said Sunni as Mali skipped away towards her home.
