Emily is teething and missed a nap so wasn’t feeling well. Usually when I put her in the carrier she falls asleep peacefully. I decided to try it out and film practicing yoga while wearing her.
It didn’t turn out as planned. She didn’t want me to do poses, she wanted me to stop and just be. When she began fussing I thought I should stop filming but then thought, “no- this IS yoga.”
The time that Emily needs me in this way- to hold her as she sleeps- is limited. My yoga practice helps me stay present and take in the beauty of NOW. And right now my life isn’t about the fancy poses. It’s about being a mom to my beautiful girl.
