by Customer Support on Jan 03, 2023
Have you and your family found yourselves cooped up in the house quite a bit lately? (Haven't we all? Thanks, 2022!) If so, that doesn't mean your yoga practice has to take a back seat.
How to Practice Yoga in a Family-Packed House
Many of us are spending a lot more time at home with our families these days. Parents who are used to having a yoga practice are finding themselves asking, “How on earth do I get my practice in?" Luckily, there are a lot of fun ways to make yoga a regular occurrence in your household.
Sneak in Some Solo Yoga Time
If you need some alone time, you can find little moments to squeeze in some yoga by practicing in little bits and pieces throughout the day. For example: you can do a long stretch in the morning, a grounding yoga practice at night, and a meditation for a few minutes right before bed.
If you have the space in your home, another option is to stream an adult yoga class online in one room, and a kids yoga class in another room — so you and your kids can practice separately, at the same time. There are a lot of options for streaming yoga classes online. You can find all of the Best Online Yoga Sites in this article by YOGI TIMES.
Share Your Yoga Practice with Your Family
Yoga is all about connecting — with ourselves and with each other. You can utilize this abundance of family time as an opportunity to connect with one another through yoga. Rolling out your mat and inviting your kiddos to see what your yoga practice is all about is a great way to model healthy behavior and engage your children.
Benefits of Practicing Yoga with Your FamilyChildren's yoga expert, Julie Holly, says that her family yoga classes are full of laughter and smiling. Plus, they're a great way for kids to release pent up energy! Yoga can help increase children's fitness, relaxation, and focus. It can also teach them how to love and accept themselves.
Family yoga is also a wonderful tool for finding a deeper connection with your kids. According to Julie, the most important thing isn't necessarily finding the space for your own adult practice when you have children. Instead, it's an opportunity to tap into the magic of childhood—to go back to a time when life was full of imagination and free from worries—and see the world through your children's eyes.
Family yoga comes in different forms — from simple routines, to partner poses, and classes for the whole family. With the right attitude and techniques, you'll be able to bring your child into the world of yoga so your whole family can enjoy its benefits!
