Many of you in the YogaGlo community have been gracious enough to share your at-home practice challenges with us. One of the common themes is finding a way to get in a solid yoga class while your younger ones run around, sit on your mat, pull at your clothes or find other ways to entertain themselves, all while you’re trying to focus on your practice. We heard you and we thought it would be a great idea to work with YogaGlo teacher Elena Brower to film a short class with her son Jonah.
Well. As every mom out there knows…these things don’t always go according to plan. This video is our first attempt at a Mommy & Me style class and although it isn’t a class we’d add to our site, we thought it was important to share this funny and endearing outtake with you. We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief now. If Elena Brower, world-renown yoga teacher, has her son running in and out of “class” too, you know you’re doing just fine. Enjoy this lovely little outtake. It includes some fantastic ways to practice yoga at home or on the go with your little ones.
What types of at-home classes with your children would you like to see on YogaGlo in the future? Classes where you can practice together side-by-side? Classes for your older children to practice on their own? Let us know in the comments.
Update: Elena Brower has a fantastic piece up at Mindful Mama about the power of doing yoga with your kids & some important questions to consider before you begin. A must-read for yogi parents!
