Yoga in the Ranch

I was so excited to find out that there's a Mom and Tot Yoga class on Friday mornings at the Southridge Rec Center.  We went today and it was a blast!  The teacher did an amazing job getting all the little ones interested in yoga.  A lot of the basic poses were done using animal names (instead of Sanskrit) which the children all loved.  It was a perfect class for little ones.  During organized activities it's easy to waste your time worrying that your child will misbehave, but the teacher made it very clear that all sounds were welcome and it was a time for fun - and breathing :)  This allowed all of the moms to enjoy the class and get a workout.  Even though it wasn't a typical yoga class, it was surprisingly very relaxing and a great way to start the weekend.

If you prefer to do your yoga practice alone, I love Core Power Yoga!  For my birthday, one of my friends got me a one month unlimited pass to CPY.  They have a studio right next to the Super Target in Town Center North.  I really enjoyed going to the classes because they were relaxing and it was nice to have "mommy time".  Some people don't think of Yoga as a workout, but after going to their Yoga Sculpt class, I no longer think that spin class is the best workout :)  They offer a free Beginner Yoga class on Sundays from 6pm - 7pm.  I don't think that class is heated but bring a water bottle and a towel because you'll need it!
