NaBloPoMo and Posts About Yoga

and then, even worse, I made one of my hobbies into my day job.
I watched many NaBloPoMos, Blogher’s challenge to post every day in November, pass without signing up. This year, in an effort to force myself to create fresh written content for Breathing Space Family Yoga, I signed up. In a fit of madness, I signed this blog up too.
So far, the posting her has been minimalist, but I’ve got some ideas . . . In the mean time, enjoy what I’ve been posting on yoga:

from beginner, to early morning open, to prenatal. . . . more
“What do you do all day?” is one of the most common questions about or kids yoga day off camps. No, we don’t do yoga for 7.5 hours.
We do lots of yoga and yoga games, but that’s not all. We’ll do
arts and crafts every day. If the weather is nice, we walk to a
nearby playground for lunch and outdoor time. We have quiet time
every day for both nappers and non-nappers. . . . more
