Giveaway Wednesday - The Little Yoga Mat


It's been over ten years since I took my very first yoga class as a twenty-something in sunny Santa Barbara. At the time, I was attending grad school at UCSB, and my mentor teacher gifted me with a pass to a local studio. I'm so grateful for that introduction! Since then, my yoga practice has taken on various forms - prenatal yoga when I was pregnant with Parker, Mommy and Me yoga when he was a wee-one, and most recently, hot yoga (which I never ever thought I would do, but fell in love with). 


Just like anything else that I love, I want more than anything to share my enthusiasm for yoga with my littlest man (you can read more about the benefits of yoga for young children here and here). And for Parker, anything Mommy or Daddy does is fun and amazing, so he's an eager learner. I've used these two books to guide my teaching practice:



They are illustrated simply and colorfully, and name each pose after an animal which makes them super kid-friendly. 


They are available in our book bins at home and Parker will pick them up from time to time and request we do yoga (melt. my. heart.). 


We were so excited to add The Little Yoga Matto our yoga time! The Little Yoga Mat is made for kids from baby to age four - it's the perfect size for a toddler! I like how it teaches Parker where his personal space is, plus, he gets his very own mat just like Mommy's.


The awesome people over at The Little Yoga Mat want one of you to have a mat as well! To enter the giveaway, just comment below and tell me who your mat would go to! A niece or nephew? Your son or daughter? I can't wait for another little one to have this awesome experience! I'll be choosing the winner at random and posting next Wednesday.


Happy Giveaway Wednesday!

  4. What??? I never knew they made this! So clever! I would definitely get it for my son, and then see about one of these Mommy & Me Yoga classes that I've heard about but am not brave enough to take him to.

  15. Charlotte and Posey would be obsessed with this! Just last night we did yoga to "I Am Yoga" - a must to add to your collection. We have to be in the drawing! And who was your awesome mentor in TEP? Mine was Jean Hawthorne but I never got a yoga pass. Though she made up for it in spades with emotional support.
