Ah, Monday.  It’s hard to wind up a weekend.  Do we need to tell you why we don’t like manic Mondays?    Immortalized in song and lamented by parents worldwide, the beginning of the week is often accompanied by a long to-do list and a big question mark where your imaginative ideas should be.  We’ve got a few to get the wheels turning again and the week off to a smooth start.  So check out some fun things you can only do on a Monday and make Monday morning all you hope it can be (thanks Mamas and Papas!).

Parent & Me Yoga

Work out the kinks and get a move on! Moms and their bundles can get stretch out at Mom Yoga + Baby classes on Mondays at 11:30 am in Sherman Oaks. This combo class (which is geared to expectant mommies too!) will help you clear your mind and prime your body for the week ahead. (Insider’s note: check additional Ma Yoga locations in Atwater and Beverly Hills for more classes and times.)
