We absolutely love our yearly trip to the visit family in the Southeast of England each summer!
We stay in a little cottage in the countryside and take day trips to visit special places like the Hever Castle, Groombridge Place (the setting for our upcoming Elizabeth and the Magnolia Fairy yoga book), and the Winnie-the-Pooh bridge.
One of our favorite trips is to visit the British Wildlife Center. We watch talks on red squirrels, foxes, wildcats, otters, red deer, otters, hedgehogs, and owls. One of the big surprises was how tiny hedgehogs are—they fit in the palm of your hand!
Each night, we look for squirrels and bunnies on the rolling hills outside our cottage, and we’ve been told there is a fox den nearby. After dinner, we follow the country path to visit the two Shetland ponies in a nearby farm. It’s a heavenly experience for all of us.
Back home in New England, we have similar animals, but nothing is quite the same as seeing the British animals up close. In the meantime, we can remember our trip to England by acting out various British wildlife animals through movement!
Below, you’ll find five yoga poses inspired by wildlife in England. If you’re looking for more ways to celebrate England, maybe for Saint George’s Day on April 23rd, check out our downloadable England Yoga Cards for Kids.
