Yoga baby

9 Aug

On Thursday of last week I was babysitting for a friend. Her little girl Cara has just turned 7 months and is getting pretty strong so I thought we’d take out the yoga mat so she could show me some moves.

Look at her showing off! She totally has the ‘Downward facing dog’ mastered. When she sorts out her ‘Tree Pose’ I’ll post more pics 😉 At this point she could move round a small space, and push up onto hands and feet, but wasn’t actually crawling. The very next day she crawled straight across her living room. The power of yoga!

Plans for today include:

A trip to the gym (I haven’t been in weeks)



Are you a fan of yoga?

Obviously Cara wasn’t doing any, I just had the mat out as it’s softer for when she face-plants the floor!

    Shes gorgeous, so cute! I really like yoga and I would like to find a proper class to attend at some point but at the moment I’m happy doing my free 20 minute yoga download, I just hope I’m performing the poses right!

    What a cutie pie! I haven’t done much yoga, but I did like it the few times I went. It makes me wonder why I haven’t done it more.

    Very cute! I like yoga but I don’t do it very often.

    Re the handstand advice on my blog, you’re completely right but I’m a total wimp and can’t seem to fling my legs up haha!

    I have only done a few beginner yoga downloads and I like it but I just never seem to have the time to do it!!

    i’ve only done yoga a handful of times but i really enjoyed it! i haven’t kept it up because i much prefer running and if there’s only 1 choice in the day – i gotta choose my first love. of course, i could do both if i just got UP earlier….lol…
