Friday Five:Child's Play Edition

Thanks Kathrynzj of RevGals for today’s Friday Five which celebrates the spontaneous child in all of us… or at least the one that we admire in someone else:

1) On a scale of 1-5, with 5 being I can’t do this now I am about to jump into a pit of plastic balls at the mini-mall and 1 being I can’t do this now until I can get all of the fonts on my blog to match – where are you?
I am a strong "4." I love to play!

2) What is the silliest/most childlike thing you have done as an adult?
I can name a couple: I went on the slip and slide with the kids in the front yard last summer.

A few summers back I went white water rafting with some teenagers from my church on the Arkansas River in CO. About halfway through the trip the guides have all the rafts pull over to the bank for a break. Our guide pointed to a huge boulder on the bank and said that we could jump off of it into the river if we wanted. I jumped up excitedly, thinking that at least half of my group would come with me, but they all looked at me like I was insane. Well, I could not NOT jump off that rock 'cuz, well, it was there. I did it and it was even higher than it looked. Wimpy teenagers...

3) Any regrets?
The slip and slide? Yes, it hurts to slip and slide. I won't be doing that again.

Jumping off the rock? No way, that was a blast! Bring on another one!

4) What is the silliest thing you have ever seen another adult do on purpose?
I'm usually that adult- volunteering to be the one who gets the pie in her face, jumping on the inflatables, dressing up...

5) What is something you wish you did when you had the chance?
Velcro jumping.

BONUS: For our ‘I told you so’ sides – what thing did you skip doing and you’re really glad you did!
This girl does NOT bungee jump. Nor do I play games which involve eating gross food combinations. Nope. uh.uh.

Iris--

I've always had a secret desire to velcro jump, but I've never gotten the chance. They don't make velcro suits in big man size. Haha.

The boulder sounds interesting. I would been one of those wimpy teenagers.

Thanks for your play!

God is Love,

+Cody

I also do not drink bad food concoctions for "funny" skits. Or bungee jump. And I'm laughing about the slip and slide. We did a homemade one down the side of a mountain at camp. You were supposed to end up in an inflatable house. I had soaped up so I would REALLY slip... and knocked over the house. Thankfully, this was well before YouTube...

Oh. Yah. Velcro jump. So want to try that!

You reminded me of a time when I was a chaplain at summer camp and we played a relay race that involved making ice cream Sunday's in each others mouths - what a mess - but fun and silly! So maybe in the right situations I can become silly.

You, on the other hand, seem to have a natural gift for fun- YAY you!

I love the idea of Velcro jumping. I'd probably do it if I had the chance.
Thanks for the prayers, BTW!

I've noticed slip and slides sound more fun than they actually are...

簡善琳瑜珈補習班創辦人簡善琳老師,在三十幾年前瑜珈風氣尚未盛行的少女時代即對它產生濃厚興趣少時體質贏弱敏感也因瑜伽而獲得顯著改善,所以立志貢獻所學,藉由瑜珈來達成幫助國人身體健康的願望。高雄瑜珈中簡善琳瑜伽養生會館除了硬體設備在會館環境上建立最精緻、最優質的多功能複式場所外,為避免其他瑜珈教室之師資情況(即投入教學工作則無力再學習進修之窘境),對於師資的培訓與要求更是不遺餘力,所有師資不分資深資淺每個月都要接受新的瑜伽課程訓練,期盼與國際接軌,隨時給予學員最新的資訊與知識。針對初學者教授九大關節操、拜日式、基本功法、淨脈呼吸法等,溫和而緩慢的瑜珈,透過簡單的延展動作及呼吸按摩身體各部位的經脈,奠定初學者學習瑜伽的基礎。會館裡有初級瑜伽、整體瑜伽、哈達瑜伽、養生瑜伽、有氧瑜伽、塑身瑜伽、氣功瑜伽、瑜伽提斯、Ashtanga、孕婦瑜伽、進階瑜伽、體位法瑜伽…等數十項豐富瑜伽課程提供選擇。
