How can Yoga help you through this crazy, rewarding journey of motherhood?
It's all about finding balance
To stay sane in motherhood, you must learn balance. As they say, "Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony". Too much of something doesn't always have the outcome we hope for, and not enough of something can lead to the same consequences. Remember that no matter how fabulous, fierce, and strong you feel moving through the physical poses of your practice, Savasana is still absolutely necessary for your soul.
Your body is no longer itself and that's okay!
You are exhausted on a whole new level. Your body needs time to find itself again and the mat will definitely help with that. It will serve as a guide to bring you back, maybe even stronger than you were before. Embrace where and who you are now. Love your amazing momma body and really listen to its requests. Radiate an energy that your children can’t help but learn to love their bodies as well. Yoga is all about acceptance and appreciation for the fabulous things our bodies can do.
Breathe and go with the flow!
Use your breath to follow intuition and go with the flow. The more you accept that some days the poses will flow freely while other days the poses may feel rigid and forced, the more you learn motherhood is the same—you have to learn to just go with the flow.
Bring patience off the mat
Learning and advancing in your practice takes time and patience. It is a journey, and all the steps along the way make it worth the effort. Knowing this, each precious day you get to spend with your kids could become a point on the journey. It will not always be easy, but with patience you can make it through the day, accepting and embracing where you are. Know that you, Yoga Momma, are doing your best. Trust and be patient with the journey.
To raise whole children, you need to be whole too.
We all LOVE our kids and would like to spoil them with attention but you need to have time to care for yourself. That is why yoga is so magical. Whether you squeeze in a 60-minute studio class before picking up the kids, a 15-minute yoga video first thing in the morning while the rest of the house sleeps, or quick restorative yoga practice before bed, you can have time for your physical body, heal emotional wounds, and connect through your breath and movement to something higher than yourself.
