Let’s be real: Who out there can say they got where they are without abiding by a few “Mama saids…”? Whether you love to gripe about your mother, call your mom every hour on the hour, or are anywhere in between, the advice we got from mom isn’t half bad… In fact, as yogis we have to say that the “mama saids” are actually pretty spot-on. Here’s some gems we’re thanking our mamas for this month:

  • Drink water.
  • Wear sunscreen.
  • It doesn’t all have to happen at once.
  • Make your bed in the morning, you will thank yourself at night.
  • Say please and thank you.
  • Eat your fruits and veggies.
  • Don’t leave your dishes in the sink.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Take it outside.
  • Slow down.
  • Turn off your phone!
  • Take a bath.
  • You can do it.

We’re pretty sure most moms would endorse Legs Up the Wall, too!

These are simple yet powerful reminders to take care of ourselves, which in turn optimizes our ability to anything and everything — not to mention also increases our ability to share good juju with everyone around us. So, give it a go! Celebrate all the mamas in your life and use hashtag “#mamasaid” to share your fave mom-isms this month…

And, we hope to see you at Fly Moms (and kids) do yoga! — a special Mother's Day weekend sesh with us and Oiselle benefiting Every Mother Counts on Saturday, May 10!
