Happy International Yoga Day!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL YOGA DAY!

The word ‘Yoga’ in the most simplest terms can be defined as union. The unity of our bodies, our minds, our hearts, and everything around us. I’ve really enjoyed teaching yoga to kids and families in the last two years. I love the feeling of connection and community it gives to each and every one of us in that room.

Family yoga is for everyone, big and small!

My little two love yoga and we try to use some of the practices in our everyday lives. For example, when the kids become frustrated or get angry over whatever’s happened, I try to encourage them to breathe out all their angry (long, cooling breaths like blowing a balloon). We usually do three of those and by the end the kids are feeling a little more calm. Or when we want to practice our balance, we will see who can hold our tree pose the longest!

Kids & Family Yoga Video

Here’s a video of my recent upload for #InternationalYogaDay . It’s a short 6 minute video with a gentle flow – starting with some breathing and stretching then moving on to two rounds of a sun salutation for kids. Round up the kids and give them a 5mins time out for relaxation and mindfulness.
