Incredible! Bendy mum and twisty kids pull off awe-inspiring yoga poses

You can keep your zen yogis to yourselves, we’ve found the cutest downward doggers going around.


Child’s pose indeed.

BuzzFeed reports that mum-of-two Charity Le Blanc started doing yoga after the birth of her first kiddo, now 5-year-old Oakley.

The super-fit mum is obviously very proficient and it seems her excellent skills were destined to rub off on her kids.

Charity says that when her littlies showed interest in what she was doing, it seemed a natural progression to include them in her practice.

“They loved to watch me do the movements even as little infants. Now they think it’s awesome that their mom is a moving jungle gym, and sometimes pull out the mats themselves,” Charity explained.

This ace mum has thus cleverly combined (most of) the things she loves the most into one, fun activity. Multi-tasking achievement unlocked!

“I get to work on myself, stay fit, and play with my kids all at the same time!” she told BuzzFeed.

Granted, we could scarcely get out of bed when our kids were a few months old, but mums like Charity prove that fitness and motivation varies wildly from mum to mum, and reminds us to find time to look after our bodies and minds.



Growing movement

Charity continued her yoga practice through her second pregnancy and bendy Oakley was eventually joined by his sister Felicity (now aged 2) in these stacks-on sessions.

Charity captures their moves on camera, posting to Instagram (@charity.grace) to inspire other mums and dads.

While many of us can’t plank without getting our wobble on, Charity, Oakley and Felicity make their poses look effortless and fun.

This family is not the only gang having fun and doing flexy, healthy things together. A quick scroll through the #FamilyYoga hashtag on Instagram reveals thousands of shots of similarly stretchy mums, dads and kids.

Maybe today’s the day YOU get bendy with your kids?!
