Yoga: Toddler Style

by mamagrace71 on August 29, 2012

Once a week at our daycare centre, a yoga teacher comes over specifically to teach the children some simple poses.

I wrote a post about the surprising impact it already had on Nunu after the first class.

Ever since, our carer likes to send through photos to prove that the boys can actually sit still.

They now say, “Namaste” and apparently at the end of each yoga session they have a little “Oom” moment.

How about bringing some of that peace and tranquility back home, boys ???

My middle pink learned yoga at kinder last year. It was great. She loved it and still talks about it. I think it’s great.

But regardless, they are pretty darn cute! :)

They’re some bendy kids you’ve got there! I don’t think I’ve been that flexible since… yep, about that age!

Love the full swing yoga shots! What a great program.


ava August 29, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I am jealous of these two cuties. A yoga gym/class is hard to come by here, if there’s one it’s either too far from where we are or too expensive. Great poses boys! :)

Hi Grace, tragically I think you still have about 20 years to wait!! They look cute though, great that the teachers send the pix through.

I’d need proof my daughter sat still as well. Oh to be that flexible again


Becky from August 29, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Oh my gosh, that is too cute! Maybe I should find out about it for my kids, a bit of calm wouldn’t go astray!

I think I need this for Jackson. And probably John. Yes, definitely for John. He could use some “Oom” in his life.

When I first saw these photos I thought go Grace making time to do yoga with the kids brilliant idea! Almost inspired me to do the same with mine. I love that so many schools and centers are picking up on this kind of thing. Helps created some great habits for later on in life

Daisy August 31, 2012 at 7:23 am

Haha! I’d need photos to believe mine sat still as well! How cute and how awesome! You should totally ask the teacher for a kids yoga DVD recommendation! And then let us know (and by us I mean me!)

They are too cute. Especially love the pic in front of the couch, coordinating their legs in the air.

Your kids are always better for other people, which is probably a good thing. My SIL always says we are lucky to have such easy to look after girls. She hasn’t been here in the afternoons when they both turn into witches!

Chrissie at Me and My Munchkin August 31, 2012 at 2:52 pm

That is absolutely adorable! I couldn’t imagine my Munchkin sitting still for any period of time either. Just today my Mum said “I wonder if he will be a puzzle child?” I just laughed and said “Yeah right!” You have 2 beautiful boys there!

Hello this is the twins Yoga teacher Leonie from YogaBugs. Your beautiful twins are an absolute pleasure to teach and enjoy their classes so much. It is truly incredible that children as young as 18 mths respond so well to this program. I run weekly classes in daycare, pre-school and run public classes on Monday and Thursday’s.
