Sam loves Yoga. So do I, in fact, so we hang out sometimes and do it together. For about 5 minutes. But 5 minutes is about as much as you can ask for from a toddler, right? The new Parents Magazine had a great article that Sam and I loved (we tried it for the first time today). I have been looking for some free vids on the Internet to have Sam watch with me to show kids how to do yoga but have never found anything. Maybe I’ll post one of our “sessions”… Anyway, the article was very easy to follow.
Go to parentsmagazine.com to search a wide variety of steps to follow (no videos, though), different ages, styles, etc. if you don’t get that magazine. Here’s one I really liked and will practice with Sam.
Don’t like structured exercise? Me neither. Instead what Sam and I will usually do is “Child’s Pose” and he pretends to be a baby, “Cat Stretch” and he roars like a lion, we stretch as high as possible and pretend to be giraffes eating leaves, stuff like that. He loves it and without even noticing has stretched and grown a few centimeters. 🙂 Sneaky mommy.
