Yoga for Mother Athletes

Use these videos to help you to ease tension, build strength, and calm your mental state in less than 15 minutes. These videos are designed for your real life, where yoga might happen next to a Lego tower going up. We created these videos because while motherhood is a different experience for every woman, finding ways to take care of yourself while caring for your children is key for doing your best momming. Yoga for real is more important than ever and these videos are relevant whether your child is two months or 12 years old.

NOTE: If you are newly postpartum, please keep in mind that it takes at least 18 months for your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state. You might have heard that you're fine to resume usual exercise at six weeks postpartum, but that's an incredibly arbitrary number that doesn't factor in the your unique pregnancy and birth (not to mention how much sleep/nutrition/support you are getting in those early weeks). Go easy on the core routine until you're sure your body is ready for it. Bottom line: err on the side of rest.
