Yoga with your kids
A tip if you have kids, try doing yoga with them sometimes. My doughter love to workout with me and we normally do yoga as a warmup. Just remember when you train with kids, it's supposed to be fun so if your kid starts doing something else or can't do a pose right, just roll with it.
