I read a little article on Common Ground Magazine’s website today about kid yogis that had picture of an adorable and serene looking baby sitting in the lotus position with hands at the heart. When I practice this pose I feel relaxed and I “come back into myself”. I am often “go-go-go” if even just in my head. It feels nice and right to get grounded again with yoga.
I think it is a marvelous idea to teach kids yoga. Kids do it naturally anyway, similar to the way in which cats and dogs do (think about the pose Downward Dog for example). They just intuitively know how to move their bodies to keep feeling good.
There is a yoga pose named after something that babies naturally do: Happy Baby Pose
I plan on becoming a yoga teacher. I hope to take a teacher training within the next year. I am not sure how that will work out with a baby about to come but, having read this article, I now feel like I can share my yoga adventures with my baby. The thought of this is very satisfying.
