Are you a yoga parent? Know someone expecting? Have a real soft spot for having kids AND keeping up a semi-regular, aka whenever possible, yoga practice? Then you will definitely relate to Brian Leaf’s book: “Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi: Cloth Diapers, Cosleeping, and My (Sometimes Successful) Quest for Conscious Parenting.” If you haven’t already, be sure to check out the exclusive excerpt we posted last week where Brian describes his ninja-like maneuvers in just trying to go pee in the middle of the night. Ah, kids.
Description via Amazon blurb:
In this hilarious, heartfelt book, Brian Leaf tackles parenting with a unique blend of research and humor. He explores Attachment Parenting, as well as Playful, Unconditional, Simplicity, and good old Dr. Spock parenting. He tries cloth diapers, no diapers, cosleeping, and no sleeping. Join him on his rollicking journey in this one-of-a-kind parenting guide.
WIN: We’re giving away TWO copies of “Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi: Cloth Diapers, Cosleeping, and My (Sometimes Successful) Quest for Conscious Parenting“ by Brian Leaf, courtesy of Brian Leaf.
TO ENTER: We don’t need to convince you, parenting is hard! As another talented author and funny dude/dad, Neal Pollack, aptly noted, “K. Pattabhi Jois said that family life was the ‘Seventh Series’ of Ashtanga Yoga, the most challenging and almost impossible to perfect.” Parenting is not a perfect science, which makes it so much easier to laugh at it. Share with us in the comments a fun or funny moment you’ve experience with the little one(s) in your life, whether they were yours or not (fur babies count, too!). Perhaps they’ve imparted some wise yogi wisdom without even trying.
Giveaway will remain open until 11:59pm ET Sunday, May 18th. Two winners will be selected at random and announced soon after. Good luck!
UPDATE: Congrats to Greg and Marjorie! Thanks to everyone for sharing your endearing and hilarious stories!
