Happy Baby Pose

This was actually taken on Halloween – the toes are easily making it into her mouth now. I’ve been meaning to write a real “Pose of the Month” write-up on Happy Baby, since I’ve never done that one, but alas, it just hasn’t happened yet. But happy baby is happy!

Cobra Pose

I’m not actually sure if this should be Cobra Pose or Sphinx Pose. Her elbows are mostly down, which would indicate Sphinx, but I think the work she’s doing and her attitude here is much more Cobra. And let me tell you, it’s really exciting to see her nailing this pose after weeks and weeks of working on it.

Malasana, at the beach, with angry baby

This will, I think, be the start of a new series here at the yoga blog. I may not have as much time to write as I used to, but we do take a ton of pictures of our kid, and many of those pictures are tangentially related to yoga in some way. Today I bring you malasana, or the yoga squat, shown here on the beach at Cape May, on a windy September day when the water of the Atlantic Ocean was pretty darn cold and YogaBaby didn’t care who knew it.
