Stretching the body doesn’t need to be a routine (routines can seem b o r i n g sometimes)
Make it part of your play time!
YES it is up to US to get down on the ground and PLAY with the kids
We will evolve immeasurably if we make an intention to do this regularly!
Playing on the ground with our children can make us
- better partners
- more conscious parents
- more focused workers
- happier people!
There are some awesome animal postures in yoga that bring great wellbeing!
Make a jungle game and include animals like LIONS and Monkeys, tall Flamingos, curled up Echidna’s or turtles…stretchy cats, and snakes… for holding the pose have music playing (or sing loudly) … be animals and when the music stops hold the animal pose.
For mindfulness in your playful yoga… say things like ‘ lets take a deep jungle breath now, gather our POWER and R O A RRRRR!’
Be creative… 🙂
It is the idea and the vocabulary we need to bring into our children’s live’s
Let the serious poses can come later!
