Going out to eat with children always presents a series of challenges. The conundrum: you go to a restaurant that appeals to you, eat actual good food, but potentially endure whining from the smaller family members, attempt an off-menu order, and/or compromise nutritional value for the little ones (buttered noodles, anyone?). Option two: you go to a kids’ restaurant to avoid tantrums, eat mediocre food, and almost always skip nutritional value all together. But hey, at least there’s no prep or dishes!
Lucky for parents, there are a number of restaurants in Austin engineered precisely to allow parents to avoid the lose-lose situation going out to eat can so often be. Here are some of our favorites restaurants, from ‘fast food’ to sit-downs, that truly offer something for everyone.more
ACHOOOO! Allergy season is definitely upon us here in Texas (does it ever end?). It seems that nothing is safe from the fine yellow dust settling on every surface, and no one is safe from the congestion, watery eyes, and fatigue that come along with it. Oak pollen, y’all.
For many of us, the symptoms of these allergies are mild, but nonetheless annoying. So what’s a parent to do when their children are spending the first glorious days of spring stuffed up? While those with severe allergies should see a doctor, if the symptoms are more of an inconvenience or a nuisance, there are several yoga poses families can do to minimize the symptoms of allergies.
Inverted poses are excellent for mild allergy sufferers! When you tip your body so that your heart is above your head, the magic happens. These poses help battle fatigue and increases the flow of blood (re: oxygen) and lymph, the vehicle for white blood cells. Ultimately, the greater supply of blood and lymph can open sinuses and help your body flush out blockages (re: pollen!).

Being a new mom can bring on exciting challenges, special moments, and opportunities for growth as a mother along with physical growth and development. Practicing yoga with your baby, sometimes referred to as postnatal yoga, mom and baby yoga classes, or mommy and me yoga classes, offers many benefits to mommy and baby alike.
Re-alignment of the Body
Carrying your baby with you throughout your pregnancy has caused changes in your body, both hormonally and structurally. During the time of pregnancy, a mother's body generates hormones necessary to help aid in the development of the child. Lack of restoration of proper hormone levels after pregnancy can lead to trouble losing baby weight and even postpartum depression. Yoga with your baby helps to balance the lymph system by generating movement throughout the lymph channels to flush the body of toxins and regulate hormones levels. With a strong focus on strengthening the core, mom and baby yoga classes can help to realign any spinal misalignment caused by the weight of the baby during pregnancy. Yoga can...more
The teenage years can be a rollercoaster, filled with unexpected and new changes that can put strain on the teen's foundational relationships. The benefits of yoga for tweens and teens address many of these new stressors, while providing a healthy output for individuals who are looking for new ways to express themselves as they move from childhood to adulthood. From a strictly physiological standpoint, the body of a teenager experiences drastic and dynamic changes in hormone levels, which causes many key indicators of puberty such as mood swings, acne, and even weight fluctuations. Yoga helps mitigate the effects of some of these side effects by flushing the lymph system and restoring hormone levels to a consistent balance. This phenomenon manifests itself in the noticeable improvements your teenager will see in their school, home, and personal life after participating in yoga for tweens and teens.more
