Shiva Rea's new mother and baby yoga DVD
Trying to lose excess baby weight can be a daunting task, but rigorous aerobics or running isn’t appropriate for new mothers. And organising to leave the house to make a class or find the right childcare simply adds to the complexities of exercising as a new mum. Yoga provides a realistic solution, combining exercise, meditation and your baby. So if you’ve not attended a yoga class before, where do you start?
Whilst you may have local postnatal yoga classes on your doorstep, a new Mother and Baby DVD has just been release by the yoga trainer and guru, Shiva Rea. The DVD has been specially created to guide new mums through the yoga post-natal basics as well as focusing on four distinct routines to help relieve stress, strengthen, stretch and tone.
- Mothers Body Toning: helpful if you want to go back to wearing more form fitting outfits with confidence.
- Rising Up: for a multi-tasking mother who is already up and about, and wants to kill two birds with one stone.
- Balance and Core Strength: is important if you are carrying your newborn, or lifting/moving heavy objects around the house, this calls for a sturdy foundation.
- Daily De-stressors; for a manic day full of jobs and errands to run, this helps you prepare or recover from a busy day.
