What happens when yoga instructors have kids? They have yoga practicing kids, of course! That’s exactly what New Jersey-based Laura Kasperzak has with her 4-year-old daughter Mini; a mother and daughter yoga tandem. It didn’t take Kasperzak too long to recognize that Mini, her 4-year-old daughter is enormously fond of doing yoga. Well the netizens like her too, as Kasperzak and her Mini ‘me’ already have 725,000 followers on Instagram.
Kasperzak is a veteran of Yoga for 17 years now, and she teaches classes and workshops in New Jersey. While she has been at it for almost two decades, her enthusiasm spiked after giving birth to her two kids. Now even her children like yoga. Mini is the youngest of a brood of two, having an older brother, but the lad is tad shy to face the camera, so Mini more than makes up for it by hamming it up.
As you can see, not only does Mini have excellent form, but she is also a natural on camera. Her proud mother said, “She’s the ham of my two children, and loves to be photographed. Just recently she was doing a headstand and said ‘Mommy, take a picture!’ After I did she said ‘Let me see.’ She goes, ‘Oh no, mommy, we have to do it again. I wasn’t smiling.’”
These delightful and inspiring images demonstrate that exercise can be a fun family activity. Studies show that active children enjoy the health benefits of being physical even when they are already in middle age. It is also a lifestyle they tend to carry with them as they grow older, and eventually impart to their children when they become parents. It is never too soon or too late to get your kids into a healthy lifestyle, so why not do like this mommy and daughter.
