Did you know September is National Yoga Month?
Well, it is! And it’s totally something you can enjoy with your children! The benefits are amazing … I mean, because who doesn’t want to instill a sense of inner peace and calmness into their child? And I love that I can take a pause and refocus alongside my munchkins. Deep breathes everyone!
In celebration of yoga month I wanted to share a few of my favorite kid-friendly yoga products! Take a peek …
The Lazy Lizards Yoga DVD is one of our favorites – my three year old adores all the animal poses and often adds her own side effects
What a darling sweatshirt (available as a tee too) from Namaste Kids.
Kate Quinn yoga pants are organic and offer the perfect loose fit with an adorable roll over top.
The Kids’ Yoga Deck – perfect for learning basic poses.
A perfect size for your little yogi, The Little Yoga Mat is cute and classy with the a choice of lotus flowers or suns.
The beauty of yoga is that it is so simple. Don’t have a mat? Have your child choose a bright colored towel. Don’t have a video? Look up a few poses online (or imagine your own) and take turns being the yoga teacher with your child. Don’t have a specific yoga music? Anything instrumental will do. See? Yoga can be loved and enjoyed with minimal effort. And that’s totally my kind of activity. And the calm you’ll all experience … priceless.
Just so you mamas and dads don’t feel left out, over 1,600 yoga studios around the country are offering a week of free yoga to new students in honor of National Yoga Month. Search the yoga studios in your area to see if they’re participating!
