Mommy Yoga

No, not my yoga business…

I came across this book by accident, when I was doing a random Amazon search for my own videos. It is entitled Mommy Yoga: The 50 Stretches of Motherhood, by Julie Tilsner, ill. by Susan McKenna. It looked so cute that I bought it, and I must say, I highly recommend it to any yoga mom that needs a good laugh! I have laughed and laughed. :)

Here is an example, which is rather indicative of how my day has been:

Slop

From a standing position, forward bend to floor and make large wiping motions until all lunch is cleaned up. Slowly curl up, one vertebra at a time, until facing baby again. Accept strained peaches on face with serenity. Breathe!

    LOL that’s awesome–it sounds like a chapter from the book I’m writing about “Yoga for the Sleep-Deprived” :)
