Not Only Kidding

January 1, 2018

It can be quite serious work doing yoga, but these kids are up to the challenge.

Sit up straight and concentrate. Ava Tyler sent this photo with the caption “An apple doesn’t fall far far from the tree.”

Ellen from Swanage, Dorset, UK stretches her legs and pushes against the floor with her hands.

Two trees growing tall. Iyengar yoga teacher Amy Van Mui’s daughter — and a friend — know that it’s important to maintain focus when you attempt Vrksasana.

When Annie Beatty’s kids were young, they worked hard making triangles in the yard.

Iyengar yoga teachers Matt Dreyfus and Michelle LaRue’s daughter has been immersed in yoga all her life. “6 years old — just decided to get some props and do a little viparita dandasana…”

Concentrated study: Ellen, granddaughter of Carlotta Barrow from Swanage Dorset UK,  is using my book as a text.

A bolsters helps open 3 year old Kori’s lungs as she breathes deep while practicing Baddha Konasana. Her grandmother Kiha Lee is a Int Jr 3 Iyengar Yoga teacher.

Now a teen, Annie Beatty’s oldest attends a teen class “which often involves lots of laughing in between some good work and some great relaxation.”

Thanks to everyone who has sent me photos of their kids who were inspired by Watch Me Do Yoga; please keep sending them in. I try my best to correctly credit all the photos, but if I’ve forgotten your child’s name, or the parent or grandparent who sent in the photo, please send it to me, and I’ll update the post.
