This is one of my favorite classes that I drafted and spent a good amount contemplating. I put this out there so that you might feel inspired and love Hanuman as much as I do. This lesson is parred down quite a bit in details, but it still gives a good overview.
Theme: Steadiness - the mythical story of Hanuman meeting Lord Ram and helps save Sita
When we are feeling small, less than or inadequate, we can pause, breath and get steady to connect to something bigger than ourself. When we are steady in mind, body and heart, we are able to connect to something bigger, and we begin to feel full again. When we feel full and capable again, we can meet any challenges head-on!

Weaving the Heart Quality:
-Inhale making your inner body bright and exhale rooting your monkey tail earth bound feeling steady.
- We want steadiness in our life to breakthrough challenges.
- Being steady in one's life allows us to remember the bigger picture and gets us through the rough spots.
- When you feel challenged [in life, or in asana] steady yourself through the breath.
- Steadiness doesn't only mean being steady physically, but also begin steady and constant in your actions and thoughts to breakthrough any self-imposed "limitations".
-Root your monkey tail down and steady yourself. From the rooting down, extend out through your legs and take a leap of faith.
- Lengthen your tail bone down and lift the low belly in & up, feel steady, then radiate out.
- Hold the steadiness like Hanuman, making the impossible, possible.
