A little look at some of the magic
Owls are wise
Squat and bring your wings behind you. Open your eyes wide and look all around from left to right with great wisdom. Tweet an owly woo, woo.
Elephants remember who they really are
Walk around the room swinging your trunk. Stretch it high up into the air and let out a big elephant trumpet sound, letting everyone know who you are.
Cranes are patient
Stand on one leg, placing your foot either below or above your knee. If you are steady you can raise your wings to the side or above your head. Breathe slowly, deeply and patiently.
Giraffes stand up for themselves and their loved ones
Stand up tall on your tiptoes, raise your arms high in the air and walk around. Kick straight long legs out in front of you, one at a time, feeling what it’s like to stand up for yourself.
Hop on board the Magic Mat and cover yourself completely with magic.
Discover your higher self; learn to feel love, compassion and gratitude.
Its time to share in an incredible secret and to find ultimate happiness for the rest of your life.
Learn confidence from a growling leopard,
Dive head first into creativity by flying to freedom with a butterfly and you too can be as happy as a jumping monkey.
