When you think about it, having a baby is like doing yoga.
in yoga they tell you to take deep breaths and slowly. Don't we do that when we smell our little one.. Oh that scent! Milk + baby
powder + I don't know what else, but its good.
Yoga tells you hold your breath. Of course! This is exactly how we get through the diaper changing process.
Yoga teaches you about meditation. Tell me humming a lullaby does not put you in a meditative state.
Yoga improves self control. The baby vomits all over your hair and new dress. What do you do? You swallow any swear words. And you go "Aww, lets get you cleaned up sweetypie..." and you clean up. (this takes practice though)
Yoga teaches you about stretching and 'asanas' or poses. You find yourselfstretching like a rubber band. Evertried reaching for a phone with your toe while feeding the baby?
Yoga improves balance. Its amazing how much you find yourself doing with a baby in one arm. From cooking to eating to ironing to grocery shopping to everything.
Yoga is said to give inner peace. Yup its indescribable. That peace when the baby finally goes to sleep.
Yoga tells you how to end your session with aShavasanaorthe corpse pose. Oh yeah! We sure are knocked out by the end of the day.
