Share with Us: Including Children in Your Practice
Is it wiser to include children in your practice and relax your expectations, or to hold sacred your solo practice in order to rejuvenate yourself and be more present for your child? Let us know what you think.
My teenage son has depression and anxiety. He did not ask to do yoga, but once he tried one class he was hooked. Since He is not very much of a group person, I hired my kids former elementary school teacher to do a family yoga class at my parent's house. We were fortunate to have someone that both kids liked who was also a yoga teacher. We have held class all summer and it has been great!
my daughter loves yoga, she is 4 :) in our lives i make room for both. my personal practice is my sacred time, i show up almost every morning and celebrate me! but in the afternoon and evenings we often break out into impromptu yoga play time and that is when i can focus on her and be silly! best of both worlds!
My young teenage son is a recovering heroin addict. He has voiced an interest in meditaion and yoga. It is a huge step for a teenager to do ANYTHING w/ their parent and a group of older adults. Let's face it. I read an article years ago about yoga for addicts. Any ideas about who? where? how? to get this going? With gratitude.
