Today Wilson and I went to our very first Itsy Bitsy Yoga class! It was lots of fun and a great way to meet a few new friends. Wilson was, as usual, a little intimidated when faced with the fact that other children exist and were in a confined space with him. But he did let loose a little and try a few poses and actually smiled and laughed at a few of them. I think he's really going to enjoy it once he warms up to being around other people. I went on and bought the book and signed up for future classes. Between now and our next class we can look through the book and practice some of the things we learned today so we can get more "up to speed" before next week. It was so cute to watch all the little "yogis" go into a pose when the teacher called one out. It's amazing what they can learn and retain at such a young age. You're supposed to call out a pose in a sing-songy voice and help them into it. Wilson's favorite right now is Lampa- go figure. This is the yoga word for "jump". He walks around bouncing, sort of bending at the knee saying "bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp", laughing the whole time. It's too much fun!
