My mom gave me the gift of yoga when I was a child growing up. And now I get to give my daughter the gift of yoga, too—this time, in the form of Mother’s Day yoga.
Parenting is hard. But it’s worth it in those magical moments when we’re in tune with our children, all our stresses and worries melt away, the to-do list can wait, and we get to just be together with our children.
The past few years have been a wildly intense emotional journey for me. I’ve learned a lot about myself, both good and bad. And I’m still learning how to better manage the challenges of parenting our incredibly spirited, sensitive child. My heart tells me that it’s my job to create a calm home environment to help her thrive in a busy world.
For this Mother’s Day, I’m giving my daughter the gift of love and connection by practicing these calming partner yoga poses together.
5 Mother’s Day Yoga Poses
You could practice these poses together with your child or mother, or practice with a friend and think about the connection you have with the special women in your life. Take your time to come in and out of these poses. Be intentional about slowing down and focus on being together. Don’t worry about getting the partner poses perfect; just give it go.
Stay tuned for our Partner Yoga Poses for Kids Cards coming later this year.
