Editor's note: Whether it's prenatal yoga, mommy-and-me classes, or offerings at many schools around the country, we're seeing a steady rise in kids' yoga, and in parents who support the practice. So in honor of Mother's Day and in the spirit of these budding little yogis, photographer Robert Sturman has curated a heartwarming collection of mothers performing various asana with their children, all around the world.
I believe one of the greatest things we can do as children is appreciate our parents.
As a tribute to mothers everywhere, I've put together 17 photos of yoga moms with their kids from multiple shoots I've conducted over recent years. From the Jersey Shore to somewhere off the coast of Vietnam, I was able to capture these beautiful moments of what it means to be a mother; what it means to be a yogi.
Happy Mother's Day to all generations of moms everywhere — from grandmothers to great-grandmothers, expectant mothers and stepmothers, to the matriarchal figures for those without mothers. You will always live through us, even long after you are gone.
