  • Reconnect: ground yourself. Toddlers benefit greatly from seeing parents practise yoga and meditation – it helps model how to cope with and ease stress.
  • Rebuild: strengthen, stretch and tone, and increase physical and emotional flexibility to help handle the demands of family life.
  • Increase energy levels: postural awareness and breath work can help create more vitality.
  • Community: meet other like-minded parents
  • And breathe: yoga classes are a great way to centre and focus, find space and to experience just being amidst all that constant doing.
  • Shift self-perception: yoga helps you recognise that nothing is static, so emotional and physical sensations are constantly moving. This can help us to deal with the challenges of parenthood.
  • Enjoy! yoga classes are light, fun and relaxing, setting you up for the day ahead. Toddlers can play or join is as they like. Always advisable to bring a favourite (quiet!) toy and a snack too.

Quotes

Like a Firmament

Like a firmament, devoid of edge or centre,
Meditate on vastness and infinity.
To understand the innate truth,
Unite skill and wisdom.

Like the sun and moon in all their glory,
Mediate clearly without darkness,
Knowing that all beings are your parents,
Love and show compassion to them.

— Milarepa
