Being a mother is a beautiful experience however you need to take care of your body as well. Big tummy, unshaped body can make you feel depressed once you are out of your dream land of motherhood.
Standing balance: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and take a few breaths to center yourself. Bring left knee toward chest, holding it with left hand. (Place right hand on a wall for balance if necessary.) Inhale to lengthen the sides of your body from waist to armpits, and exhale to ground right foot. Take about three to five breaths here; with each exhalation, gently draw belly and pelvic floor up and in for more stability. Switch sides and repeat. As your balance improves, try taking hand off the wall and placing it on waist.
Downward-Facing Dog: Come to hands and knees on mat, then walk knees back a few inches until they’re behind hips. Inhale, tuck toes and slowly exhale, straightening legs as you bring hips toward ceiling. Keep hands firmly rooted to the mat, especially fingertips. Remain here for three full breaths, come down, and sit back on heels to rest in child’s pose or on hands and knees.
Boat Pose:Sit tall on mat, legs extended and hands at sides. Lift feet off mat with knees bent and shins parallel to floor. Keeping abdominal engaged, lean back slightly but stay as far forward on sitting bones as possible. Reach fingers forward, keeping hands in line with shoulders. Breathe evenly, lengthening the sides of body as you balance on sit bones.
Bicycle Crunches: Lie on back, with hands clasped behind head. Lift shoulders up and bring left knee to chest, extend right leg out, and twist right elbow to left knee. Repeat on the other side. Keep alternating until you’ve done 8 to 10 on each side.
These exercises will hardly take much of your time. Follow them daily when your baby is sleeping and be a beautiful sexy mom that your baby will be proud of.
