Morgane my 4 year old is really getting into yoga. Lately she’s been looking through my yoga books and pointing out poses she wants me to teach her. It’s interesting how simple cues require so much of her concentration to perform (like, turn your toes in), and require me to try and make them 4-year-old-friendly. It’s fun, and I can see that mind-body connection blossoming.
Morgane also really likes to chant. It’s surprised me to hear her belting out lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu, correctly I might add, almost as much as hearing her sing lines from a Pink song (“This used to be a fun house – but now it’s full of evil clowns”). Yesterday, when I was taking a picture of her new haircut (damage control, after she cut off almost one entire side of her hair), she brought her hands to Namaste, closed her eyes and started chanting OM. Music to my ears.
