Recently the only way I can get time to practice is if I practice with my daughter and husband at home before dinner. My daughter is 3 years old, so as you can imagine this isn't any easy task, convincing her to give Mommy some space. My husband being understanding does his best to keep her entertained, but it usually ends up with her crying outside of our "yoga room" door, until I open it and console her. UGH!
So I've recently come up with a solution. One I hope you will try, when you find yourself in a similar situation.
I have a small portable digital clock/timer, which I use when I'm teaching or practicing Yin yoga.
|This is the one I use. There are many on the market. Check out kitchen stores.|
As I lie in Svasana (final relaxation pose), resting peacefully I hear "BEEP, BEEP, BEEP" and then the heavy footsteps of a 3 year old running up the stairs. She flings open the door and jumps on me with enthusiasm.
We move on with the rest of our evening, every one feeling happy and settled. WORKS like a charm.
Hope it works for you too.
