Postpartum | Postnatal Yoga | a video series

Hi hi! If you’re a new mom, a veteran mom, or just in need of some movement because you sit all day, this video series is for you! Because I am on maternity leave and just recently had a baby, I will be talking about the effects of feeding and carrying the baby, and the toll that pregnancy and labour has taken on the body.  The video series will focus on getting strength back in the core, opening up the tight and tense muscles that are repetitively used when taking care of a baby, and overall re-conditioning of the body. While this video series is targeted for postnatal women, there is no harm in following along if you’re just looking for a yoga practice to strengthen your core and condition your body. Below is the first video – you can find the rest of them weekly on my YouTube channel – Fit For Food Mom.

Please feel free to post any suggestions or requests! Looking forward to our online yoga journey together. Namaste!

Mindfulness

mindfulness (4).pngMindfulness starts with tuning in to the present moment, using your 5 senses to really appreciate what is happening and what you are experiencing. You can incorporate mindfulness into any daily activity (such as quiet breathing, eating a meal, drinking your morning coffee). It doesn’t have to be a long practice, and it doesn’t mean your mind needs to be blank. We all have wandering minds, but it is the practice of noticing the wandering thoughts and bringing yourself to the present moment that is the MINDFUL practice. Remember, the reason it is called a practice is because that is exactly what it is, a practice. We practice mindfulness to improve health, on a physical, mental and emotional level. The more you practice it, the more you will reap it’s benefits, and the easier it becomes! If you are interested in learning more about Mindfulness and Meditation, you can join us for our 8-week workshop (click here for details) or book a PhysioYoga appointment with Tatianna.
