Meditation can conjure up visions of yogis peacefully residing on a mountaintop, one with the earth and sky. That may seem to be a very unobtainable state, however, meditation is something that everyone can do (mountaintop optional).
As a yoga instructor and a mom of three, I welcome families to come together to take my classes, in fact I encourage it. New moms with their babies, moms and dads with toddlers in tow, everyone can benefit from the practice. Parents are often surprised at how their kids are natural-born yogis! I often use the babies to show the proper way to breath, deep from your belly. The babies are my best assistant instructors in long deep breathing. After class, no matter the group I am teaching, is always meditation time and there are some wonderful meditations that families can participate in!
