Please join us at the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes this upcoming Saturday, September 7th for a relaxing 2 hour introductory activity session of Ashtanga Yoga with Cesi Lainez.

Ashtanga yoga is the branch of yoga that analyzes the mind  and aims to gain control over it. This type of yoga was systematized by Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore India. Ashtanga yoga  literally means the path of 8 limbs and it is also known as Raja Yoga(which means king or highest,of yoga) because it’s based on 8 principles that lead to the purification of the mind and body in order to achieve the self or Atman.
Cesi, a Raja Yogi herself, will be teaching and sharing with us her love for this practice, by introducing us to the primary(or first) series, as it consists of 62 other postures. Cesi has expressed her desires and passion to be able to share this gift with Chicktime’s volunteers and the children we serve!
Raja Yoga’s first series deal with the following:
Yamas  
Non-violence
Truthfulness
Honesty, non-stealing
Non-covetousness
Moderation in all sensual pleasures
 
Nyamas
Physical and mental cleanliness
Contentment
Austerity, self discipline
Study of the scriptures
Surrendering to God
If you’d like to join us, please bring a yoga mat, or two (to share), and wear comfortable pants along with your Chicktime shirt. If you do not have one of our inspiring shirts yet, they are always available on site for a $20 donation.

 August Highlights:

The activity session for August was cancelled due to a request made by FBCH. I hope all of our volunteers have made the best out of the summer! August Blessings for ALL for wanting to make a difference in a child’s life and their own!.

This upcoming Saturday, August 3rd, our monthly activity has been re-scheduled for the following month of September. Florida Baptist Children’s Homes have asked us to cancel the activity we had planned for the children, due to an event that they are all involved with, which they cannot do at another time.

I have asked the staff at FBCH to let the children know that it was our best intention to be there this month as always, and that we will resume our activities sooner than soon!

Please stay posted for September details which will involve an amazing yoga session with our volunteer, Cesi, who is truly excited to share her passion with all of us!

 July Highlights:

     This past month of July’s Chicktime activity  felt like a hot fun summer day!
Yuleidi, our July monthly leader, graced us all with cupcakes she baked herself, a white canvas and lots and lots of colors. We learned about color mixing, cupcake decoration, and a bit more about each other.

After decorating our own cupcake, we all got together under a nice big tree, and filled the white canvas with words of inspiration and love, along with beautiful symbols and drawings.

The last 30 minutes were spent playing volleyball all together under the hot hot sun!

  Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to support and partake in this fun activity who shared and expressed their creativity, assistance and motivation!

    A special thanks to Yuleidi Gonzales, for leading and guiding us through this fun free afternoon and for inspiring all of us to embrace our own choices and colors!

 June Highlights:

    When speaking to my co-leader Natalie Romero about the activity she would be leading for the kids, I understood that we were all in for a treat, not only creatively, but also fun, challenging and informative! For this activity, all the volunteers teamed up to bring recycled material from their homes, to embark on a journey of self discovery and relationship building through the creation and construction of a “dream car”.

We got into teams of 3 and 4 participants, combining volunteers and FBCH children, and spent 1 hour and a half working on a recycled material car that would race at the end propelled by balloons and straws.

Many of the teams were not able to “figure out the mechanics of a working vehicle”, but sure learned in the process the different aspects of engineering and building.

The winning team received a Chicktime shirt they had been asking for, and a faith inspired book to keep.

  Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to support and partake in this fun activity who shared and expressed their creativity, assistance and motivation!

    A special thanks to Natalie Romero, for leading and guiding us through this process and believing in us  until the end!

 May Highlights:

Our second Chicktime Activity with Co-Leader Heather Perez was fun and creative in every way!We had a blast out in the sun warming up while singing and dancing and later on got to create a story to tell onstage!. We had dancers, singers, artists and script writers! It was great to see it come all together. We finished by sitting down in a circle reminding each other to always repeat the following:

“I am the best and I deserve the best!”

We invite you to do the same!

Thank you to all the volunteers that came out to support, dance, sing, create and move with the children who shared and expressed their creativity and imagination!

I look forward to collaborating with all of you to serve and invite more women to lock arms as well and welcome new volunteers to partake in this amazing journey!

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
