Yoga with Pamela and Daisy

It was so beautiful and surreal to watch Pamela doing some warm up exercises before she was due on air with her 6 year old daughter Daisy.

And after her second visit, I can say that I am convinced that yoga with kids is a positive and beneficial activity for a parent and child.

Pamela and Daisy were so relaxed and focused on their activity that they are synchronized, in complete unision with each other and there was something magical about the bond between them.

With the such a lot going on in the studio, the crew, the rest of the guests on the show and the filming, I could not help but notice that Daisy was completely oblivious to all the commotion around her. It seemed that her mother was the only person in the room.

Quality time with your kid/s is so important and yoga with kids certainly gives you that.
