More #handstand fun at Bell Park! Yesterday’s #practicedaily inspiration focused on #santosha - what is it about my practice that creates contentment in my mind, body and heart? I’ve had several posts in the last week focused on contentment (there’s just so much to say!) so I’ll look at it from a #motherhood perspective today: I find contentment on my mat because it’s my time to TAKE CARE OF MYSELF. I am a solo mom most of the time, as my husband works on the other side of the country, and we’re also dedicated attachment parents, so the twenty minutes or so I get on the mat is my time to focus on my wellbeing. There’s so much “mom guilt” and judgment in the parenting community, with mothers often feeling selfish for attending to their own needs, but my emotional, physical, and spiritual health IS important and I acknowledge that by practicing #yoga. And by watching me practice, my daughter sees a healthy lifestyle being modelled, and she will learn that HER emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing is important too. 💗 @carlingnicole @mackenzieyoga @patrickbeach @ajoyfulyoga @jdoofer High-res
