The perfect formula for a great yoga practice is:
Stillness of the body + Focus of the mind + Breathing = Great Yoga!
Today’s Yoga Snack started with Bumble Bee Breath and a 2 minute still and silent meditation. From there we went through the book “My Daddy Is A Pretzel” by Baron Baptiste. This a great book with some very basic poses for a good yoga practice. Each pose is explained carefully with words and pictures. I like the fact that they have a mom who is a Marine Biologist and a Step Dad who is a pilot. The names for the kids are unique such as Emmie and Malachi, indicating many different races. This is a great book for any yoga library and is a great way to approach yoga in your home with your children. They can lead you!
