Our kids just want to spend time with us. They want to come to work with us, join our date nights, and help with errands. In my household, I am always doing yoga, so therefore my kids want to do yoga with me all the time!
Teaching our kids yoga can provide them with so many benefits including: having healthy exercise habits, learning body awareness, and building strength and flexibility. In addition, kids learn emotional skills such as: determination, patience, and focus. Perhaps the most important lesson is learning how to breathe, and teaching our children to take slow deep breaths when they are faced with challenges to stay calm.
Next time you step on your mat at home, instead of practicing alone, try out some of these fun mommy and me poses! I guarantee you will both love your time together!
