By the way, if fitness & yoga Instagram celebs have you all fired up, you need to read this post.
The roots of yoga are in Ancient India and, for those who practice yoga in a traditional sense, it’s a deeply spiritual discipline. For the rest of us, the movement can be thoughtful if not spiritual, as it incorporates deep breathing to calm the nerves & support core strength and proper alignment. Perfect for busy mamas.
So you want to yoga?
You can go hog wild and get deep into yoga culture, maybe even start a yoga Instagram account of your own. You can find an amazing local teacher to help you push your body to its limits. You can subscribe to a few YouTube yogis whose style works for you and just work out the kinks once a week in the comfort of your living room.
You can start here. Inspired by the flow of a yoga class, we’ve got 5 moves combining yoga poses with a little muscle-strengthening oomph. It’s like yoga…if yoga switched from green tea to espresso.
This workout will strengthen your body from head to toe, with a special emphasis on your core!
*Because of the positions, this workout is recommended for mamas who have recovered fully in postpartum & are free of abdominal separation and pelvic floor dysfunction.
Get fit & flexible.
Try each of these moves for 30 seconds, with 30 seconds rest between. To get a cardio challenge, move straight from one move to the next without resting between. Repeat for a total of 2-3 rounds for a great total body burn.
