Yoga sequence: Child’s play

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about being home with my child all day long. I can’t possibly be the only mother in the world with this thought. In fact, I know I’m not because I know MANY moms and dads who could not wait to send their kids back to school this week. It’s exhausting work! Also, your kids behave so atrociously for you but are perfect angels for their teachers and other adults.

But I digress. Spending all this time with Bear Shark is giving me the opportunity to really learn about my younger child. I love watching him play and how he uses his body. This boy has no fear (for better or worse), and I’ll catch him flopping around, testing his one-legged balance, doing pushups to pick up food off the floor with his mouth, etc. He’s always experimenting.

So he’s the inspiration for this sequence with a lot of on-the-ground play mixed in. This is a very grounding sequence with elements of flight and balance.
