Last week my three year old daughter, Madeline, and I attended a Parents As Teachers kids yoga playgroup. The description sounded fun and we are all about fit and healthy kids so we decided to give it a try. Little did I know my Madeline would fall in love with kids yoga and incorporate into our every day routine. Our kids yoga class was taught by Reese Emery Ryzewski, author of The Yoga ABC's. She is a fitness expert and brought a copy of the book for each family to take home. The best part of The Yoga ABC's is that the book lies open flat so kids can pick a page, look at the illustration and do the pose. As Madeline says, "I can do yoga ALL BY MYSELF." And she really can!
Look at that smile! It started at A and didn't let up until way past Z. As it turns out, kids yoga is great for little bodies and it's really easy to get your family started. Here's a little inspiration...
