Corals are colorful animals that live on the bottom of the ocean floor. Some corals are shaped like sea fans that look like plants or trees. Other corals are hard and resemble rocks or barrels. Not one coral is like another. Corals often change color to adapt to different light conditions and water temperature. Each type of coral is special in it’s own way and amazes scuba divers or swimmers who are fortunate enough to get a glimpse of this miraculous animal.

You are a Miracle, too. You sparkle and adjust to what is happening around you each day. In a recent talk at TED TALK, Mel Robbins, mentioned that scientists estimate the probability of your being born at about one in 400 trillion - (400,000,000,000,000). Wake yourself up thirty minutes early and activate your body.

Kids light themselves up each time they practice coral pose from the book Breathe & Stretch on the Beach. They feel their miraculous body as they stretch their fingers toward the sun. It is here where they feel strength, balance, and focus by integrating their whole body during movement. They breathe, stretch, and change negative self-talk.

See one of my sparkly students below as she practices coral pose. She will show you two modifications you can practice. Amaze yourself in coral pose and remember that you are a miracle!
