Yoga Tuesdays

My first yoga class was in college and after 10 minutes I was OVER it. I tried again when I found out I was pregnant and I fell in love. Not only did I feel amazing physically but my mind was just clear and I slept like a baby that night. I did yoga throughout both my pregnancies and its practices kept me sane and focused during both my labors which were 24hours+. Today, both of my kids are enrolled in yoga classes and I would not have it any other way. Tuesdays=yoga. I take my son to a mommy and me in the morning and my daughter to a drop off class in the afternoon. I think it is so important for kids to learn early on that they need to take care of themselves, to take a minute and just be with their spirit, mind and to learn to meditate. Hold a pose and focus. Yes, perhaps I am a closet hippie.

We live in a society where we are bombarded with information 24/7, kids today are almost all impatient, they want instant gratification. Phones are ringing or pinging or vibrating every 2 minutes. We have so many activities planned for our kids- do they really ever live in the moment? Or are they thinking about what’s next?

My husband works in New York City and to say he has a stressful job would be an understatement. He has trouble sleeping, has lots of back pain and overall it just takes him a long time to wind down at night. I had suggested he try yoga since it helped me tremendously and he told me….

I chuckled and thought yea, it is probably best for those poor people in class that he not go.

He is going to his first yoga class after the holiday. Namaste.




    1. Raul never got to go because the class was canceled at the last minute! Grr. Adela has been teaching him yoga at home.
