Yoga is one of my favourite things to do, as I find it helps to reduce stress. I get such a wonderful sense of calm after a session, plus I enjoy staying flexible and keeping strong.
Yesterday I booked my girls into a kids yoga class for the first time. They've seen me and their dad practice and they like to join in doing some of the poses. Their little bodies are already so flexible, but it can help them to unwind as well.
I didn't stay for their session, as I didn't want them to be distracted by my presence. I was hoping that they would enjoy it, so just before there class ended, I snuck up and had a look through the window and they were relaxing under a blanket. When they came out Ava said "I don't want to go", I was disappointed as I thought she didn't want to go again, but no, she didn't want to leave the class. Yippee!!! They LOVED it.
On the way home they were so cute chanting "Ooommms", then at home they were showing us what poses they did. I am so happy and hopefully they will continue to enjoy it, as it will help them in years to come when school gets more stressful.
