I’m very excited, as this is our first guest post ever on the Momzelle blog. Amanda DeGrace, a Canadian mom who loves to wear her Momzelle nursing top when she feeds her baby, has suggested to present one yoga move per month. Amanda has her own yoga studio in Ottawa and she specializes in yoga for pregnancy and postpartum. I guess we could say “yoga bellies” and “yoga babies”. Yoga is a gentle exercise that’s perfect for new moms and their babies. If you have seen the movie “Babies”, you’ll know it works marvels! So without further ado, here is Amanda’s post:
DeGrace Energetics & Little Lotus Yoga are excited to bring to Momzelle Mom & Baby Fitness & Yoga! Stay tuned for monthly yoga postures, sequences & fitness movements that are mom & baby friendly.
As a busy mother you spend your days working, taking care of the children, doing endless loads of laundry, grocery shopping and trying to take a time out for your mind, body and spirit. By the time you have finished enough of your daily to-do list that you feel okay with taking a moment to sit down and breathe the baby is already wake from his/her nap. Back up you get from the chair you just sat down in and think if only you had a moment to refresh, revitalize and re-energize.
The solution? Take time out each day for a few yoga postures or fitness exercises that will revitalize and increase flexibility and increase strength & stamina, all while clearing your mind and focusing on what matters most- your mind, body and spirit.
