How to do yoga with your baby

The joys of having a baby is more than anyone can ever describe but most women worry about their figure when they become a mother. But you need not to worry because there are some yoga pose that will keep you both healthy and fit.

Knee Plank Push-up Kisses

Inhale, and then exhale while bending the elbows, keeping them tucked in toward your sides, and slowly lower yourself closer to your baby until you’re close enough to kiss their nose or forehead. Inhale to press yourself back up. This pose helps develop core strength and will also work your triceps.

Hop Along play

Practice bracing your core and using your pelvic floor with your little one as a weight load. Bouncing your little one securely on your shins holding on to their hands or body ensuring a secure hold; depends on their age.

Seated Poses

One pose that baby can truly mimic is Buddha Kona Sana (Bound Angle Pose). Sit with legs wide and the soles of the feet together, or with legs extended. Place baby in the same position in your lap. Do a gentle forward fold together.

Half-Boat Pose

Start in a seated position with your legs stretched out and your baby on your lap facing outward. Or, if she seems uncomfortable, try placing her on her back facing you. Sit up straight and lift the front of your chest outward. 

Next, while holding your baby, bend your knees at a 45-degree angle with your feet flat on the floor. Then, keeping your knees together, slowly lift your feet until your heels reach the ledge. If you're not using the ledge, lift your feet until your shins are parallel to the floor. As you lean back, focus on keeping your back straight. 

Kneeling Lunge

Begin in a kneeling lunge position. Keeping pelvis in a neutral position throughout, slowly shift forward and back. You should feel a nice stretch in the hip flexors of the back leg. Repeat for 1 minute.
