Omward Bound: Moms and Their Little Ones Do Yoga Together

New yoga classes let you make the mind-body connection with yourself – and your kids

Michele and Lily chill out together.

Though Family Yoga wasn’t as intense as a grown-up-only class and won’t boost my flexibility as much, the other benefits I reaped were well worth it. In traditional yoga classes, the relaxation comes from focusing on your movements and breath. In Family Yoga, I got to that same calming place by watching my daughter laugh until her stomach hurt, bonding with her while we exercised and trying to mimic her child-like wonder about life. And if that can’t get me to a zen place, then nothing will!
