Mali

Mali is a cheeky girl, a good friend, and she likes to have fun. She likes to play games of hide and seek. You can see Mali on the Epona Yoga mat and in the Epona Yoga DVD in a series of poses that will help you balances blood sugar levels and the right and left hemisphere of the brain.


Mali the Magnificent

Friday, March 16, 2012

Mali loved to show off today she was going to see Tula as they had planned to do yoga together today.  Mali couldn’t wait to show Tula how she had learnt a new pose.

Mali had visited Rafferty at the farm and had learnt the warrior pose. Mali thought she looked Magnificent in the pose and knew Tula would wobble around trying to do what Mali could without a single wobble. Mali was even wearing a cape like a super hero to make her look even more magnificent as a warrior as she posed.

Mali had brought a yoga mat with her that showed Tula the pose to make it easier – Mali wanted to teach Tula and she knew that seeing the pose would help.

Down to the beach went Mali carrying her yoga mats and there was Tula waiting to have fun with Mali who was one of her special friends.

“Hello Mali” cried Tula as she waved to her friend.

“Hey Tula wait til you see what I can do now!” called back Mali.

Tula was excited and together with Mali they setup for their yoga in the shade out of the hot sun.

“You’re all dressed up Mali, I like your cape, wait here and I’ll go and get my dress ups too” said Tula.

Tula scuttled off to her tidy nest and came back with a dress up costume that made her look like the queen of the sea. She had a lovely circlet on her head with pearls and shells, a shiny cape that was flecked with blue, green and sliver and moved like the sea in the soft breeze and she even had a trident which was covered in glossy shells and mother of pearl.

“Oh Tula you look beautiful, I love your dress ups – maybe we’ll have to play dress ups again another day!” Exclaimed Mali.

Tula bowed low to Mali like someone bows to a king or queens and giggled as she replied  “you are correct, I am beautiful as well as being smart!”

Mali and Tula giggled together they knew  that it is what’s on the inside that is important!

Mali rolled out her yoga mat for Tula and started to stretch and Tula joined in and then Mali went through the steps to get into the Warrior pose as Rafferty the Roster has shown her. She was elegant and still and her cape fell gracefully around her nimble limbs.

 Tula tried to copy Mali and she did wibble and wobble a bit as she went through the steps and in the end cheated using her trident to hold herself up.

The two friends stayed and did yoga together for a while before they went off to play another game.

Mali's Balancing Act

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Mali was going to perform at the school concert for all the children. She was very excited and was practicing every day.

Mali was going to walk on a balancing beam and then do some yoga standing very high on the beam.

Mali is good at Balancing. Are you?

Mali got good at balancing by practicing all the time! She walks on thin lines on the paving and tries to keep her feet straight, she walks on logs in the forest and in the park and she plays on the equipment in the park too. This all helps her balance. Mali uses yoga to balance too. She has some set poses which she uses everyday and each times she does them her balance is better.

On the day of the performance Mali practiced her act, and when it was her turn Mali walked on the beam and then stood very still and gracefully moved through a series of yoga poses standing on one foot with her other foot on her knee and hands together above her head Mali know she looked lovely and the children clapped her performance.

Making Mischief With Mali

Thursday, November 03, 2011

Mali wanted to get into mischief!

She thought long and hard about how she could be mischevious and not hurt anyone but have loads of fun. Mali didn't want anyone to get hurt or be sad but she did like to be a bit naughty!

Mali decided to pop over to the beach and make some mischief there.

There had been lots of people at Tula's Beach and they had been writing down what animals had left tracks in the sand. Mali decided to swing down low over the beach from the palm trees and drag a stick through the sand making it look like a big snake had been on the beach.

The people came and saw the track that Mali had made and shook their heads - what animal track was this -  it didn't match anything!

Mali sat in the palm and giggled as the people scratched their heads.

Tula had been watching and as the people walked away she called out to Mali "You're the biggest mischief maker Mali!".

"I know said mali but it is fun to play tricks and get into a bit of harmless fun isn't it!" she replied.

The two friends went for a walk along the beach and left real animal tracks in the sand for the people to study - what would they make of that a monkey and a turtle together!





Mali and the Balancing Act

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Mali was sitting in the fork of the tree in the forest where she could see everything that was happening. She could see the vines looping from tree to tree that she loved to swing on, she could see the ants crawling up the trunk of the tree like a line of soldiers, she could see the sun shining through the leaves of the tree and she could see the baby monkeys with the mothers, cuddling and grooming each other.

Mali likes to watch everything around her quietly, and then sprint into action and make some mischief.

Mali waited til all the monkeys weren't looking and leapt from her quiet spot onto the longest vine and swung as hard as she could down from the top of the tree, down further towards the forest floor where the baby moneys were all but asleep as she whooshed pasted the baby monkeys Mali called out in her loudest voice "wake up little ones and come and play with me!"

The baby monkeys stirred in their mothers arms and scampered off to play with Mali.

mali was teaching them how to balance, standing on one leg, first she slowly lifted her leg up so that her foot was on her opposite knee and then she raised her arms above her head.

Some of the baby monkeys copied Mali and the very littlest monkey that had a tiny white patch on top of her head,  stood next to Mali and as she wibbled and wobbled trying to copy Mali balancing on one leg fell onto Mali and all the monkeys who had been trying so hard to balance fell down.

Mali and all the monkeys giggled and laughed and decided that they'd try the Balancing Act again every day til they could do it.
