by Brie My kids love to do yoga. And given that they are kids it is easy for them to move in and out of downward dog and cobra. Way easier then it is for me! Sometimes they even love to do their own versions of yoga poses. What? Haven't you heard of astronaut post?
I thought for sure the kids would like to check out the weekly Yoga on the Hill classes every Wednesday at noon on the front lawn of the Parliament Buildings. (Find out more here along with other free things to do on Parliament Hill). It definitely seemed like the place to be with over a hundred people sitting on their yoga mats waiting for the class to start.
My kids didn't last as long as I would have liked, although they did get in some downward dogs and cobras.
I am pretty sure that my four year would have stayed for the whole class but my two year old was ready to go after ten minutes. I was okay with that though. We came, we did some yoga, we left. Then we went to visit the cat houses behind the Parliament Building and watched a raccoon eat cat food for ten minutes.
Yoga on the Hill would be a summer great outing for older kids, even if they aren't too familiar with yoga. There is an instructor leading the class and lots of other participants to watch and follow. The front lawn isn't shaded though, so bring lots of water and sunscreen because the sun will be hot at noon!
Have you been to Yoga on the Hill?
