Surf’s Up!

My beautiful ohana (family) of Purl, Hawkeye, 007, Roadrunner, Ranger, Rogue, Duchess, Glammy, Shroom, Mentor, Luna, McQueen, and Summertime joined today to hang ten, sweat da kine, and ride the waves of this gorgeous Spring morning! Much Aloha, my sistahs!

I am NOT a trained professional. Modify where you need based on your abilities. Most of these exercises have fabulous options for modifications to still keep your heartrate going and your booty and core burning!

Warm Up: Do a little run, some side shuffles, skips, arm swings/circles… and GO!

The Thang: One minute of each activity with 10 seconds rest between each exercise. Try not to Wipe-Out! Two-minute walk, run, dance, stretch, etc. after round 1. Get back on your board and hana hou! (do it again!)

Inspiration:

Ho’oponopono (Hawaiian prayer, intention, and action meaning “to set right”): “Divine creator, father, mother, son as one… If I, my family, relatives, and ancestors in thoughts, words, deeds, and actions from the beginning of our creation to the present, we ask your forgiveness… Let this cleanse, purify, release, cut all the negative memories, blocks, energies, and vibrations, and transmute these unwanted energies to pure light… and it is done.”

Ho’oponopono Principles in their simplicity: “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”
