A practice for new parents

I've been practicing yoga for more than 15 years. But last year, during the most monumental shift of my life, I had trouble finding the time and space for this much-needed steadying influence.

I had a chance to write for Project Yoga Richmond's blog about the experience of re-envisioning my yoga practice after having a baby. I'm also an ambassador for the nonprofit studio, which is dedicated to making yoga accessible to all in the Richmond community. Bonus: the post is chock full of adorable photos of yogis practicing with their littles.

There’s a Zen proverb that tells us to let go or be dragged.
Parenthood is one of the great lessons in proving that statement. At a time when your life changes overnight, it’s hard to let go of the comfort and routine you found in your practice.
