Transcript of Preview Video

JANE. An episode about yoga and parenting. Emily is our studio owner and a mother of two.

EMILY. I have two children; I have a 5 year old, Tate and I have a 1 year old daughter, Rudy.

JANE. So how has your yoga practice changed form before and after becoming a mother.

EMILY. My yoga practice before and after becoming a mother is totally different. I remember before I had children, I never understood how people didn’t have time to practice yoga. And then once I had my first child, I thought, “oh, this is why people don’t have time to practice yoga”. Because it is so all encompassing especially at the age that my children are which is very young where they still are… need a lot of mommy.

JANE. What would you say are some of the yogic principles that could really serve mothers and fathers out there on a philosophical level to being good parents.

EMILY. Well, ahimsa; compassion. Compassion toward yourself as a parent because it’s not easy and we all make mistakes and we always have the opportunity to begin again. So having the compassion toward ourselves is probably the most important.

EMILY (and TATE). Can you do Tree Pose or Airplane Pose?…..Alright Tate!
