Your find your child hanging out upside down in a headstand at least twice a week.
You usually experience Savasana with one or more children snuggling you—and that’s OK with you.
You consider fruit a dessert, and so do your children. They are also all too familiar with quinoa, avocado, flax seeds, and chickpeas.
When all else fails, a guided meditation is sure to put your child to sleep.
You used to practice Wheel every day, and now you practice Legs Up the Wall every day.
You tell yourself yoga pants are just for yoga … but it never quite works out that way.
Your formerly meat-eating husband decides to go vegan (and you still eat dairy and fish).
Your child takes a break from sports, school, or art class to “relax” with a quick meditation and breathing session.
Your child knows that after every poop, comes a Downward Dog and a wipe.
Your idea of a dream get-away is a sweaty all-day yoga weekend workshop.
Your child lights up when he realizes that the word Mom contains the word Om.
You, your babysitter, your significant other and your child all do yoga—sometimes at the same time.
You find yourself practicing the other limbs of yoga more than you do asana.
