Yoga can be a great way to relax and gently exercise while bonding with your little one. We spoke to our model & photographer Maria and yoga instructor Emma about their experiences of practicing with their little ones.

Maria says:

“When you become a mother, the world seems to spin faster and sometimes everything seems to be too much and somehow blurry. Yoga can help to slow down again, to breathe, to keep your thoughts together in this crazy circus, called life.”

Emma says:

“My yoga practice now all about supporting my family; my little one, myself and husband. Sometimes he crawls around between my legs, and when he was much smaller he often was in my arms or in a sling during most of my day- whether it be on my mat or walking around. It’s a special time to be connected to your child, wrapped in with you. And a yoga practice is so much more than just postures- it’s a whole life philosophy.”
