Yoga and Parenting : 4 ways in which Yoga can make you a better Parent

In today’s stressed-out and fast life, we often miss out on the value goals we set to preach our children. Being a working parent is tough, but not impossible. If you practice yoga for health benefits, here’s something that will cheer you up further. ¬†Yoga and Parenting is a newly emerging field of research where Yoga’s benefits are known to benefit both the child and the parent.

Yoga when performed completely (Ashtang Yoga), gives you the mental and physical strength to cope up with the challenges of modern day parenting. Yoga’s basic philosophy of the 8 limbs when applied to your day to day life can help you keep calm and be a pop-star mom! Yoga and parenting go hand in hand, We are not talking about just the asanas here, Yoga includes the mental and the physical aspects along with meditation. These can combine to help you be a better parent.

 

  1. Yoga gives you the strength to look at the bigger picture
    Parenting can be challenging and not everyone can hold the best of themselves with young kids. The Yamas teach us some of the most helpful principles which can help us being a better parent. When you practice yoga, compassion comes naturally to you. This will help you ignore all the negative energy and frustration that is generated for a parent with young kids and baby duties.
  2. Yoga is Fun!
    If you can teach your young child to enjoy yoga, they can discover a world of their own. Yoga is found to be popular among kids especially when done in groups with parents. Try to mix it up with vacation retreat tours, kids yoga camps and a little family yoga session on weekend to let your kids enjoy themselves when doing yoga.
  3. Values and Samskara
    Believe it or not, when we teach our children values from a behavioral aspect rather than a religious obligation, we always get better results. The Yamas and Niyamas if taught correctly at a young age, can mould your child to be a good person. Thus yoga takes care of a lot of your parenting work :)
  4. Stress Benefits
    I cannot stress (pun intended) enough on the mental and physical benefits of yoga that help in managing stress. The better you are able to manage your stress, the more friendly you are with the kids.

Thus Yoga and Parenting can be something that can both help you achieve inner peace and true happiness.
