After childbirth, easing back into a workout routine is all about baby steps! Pregnancy can take a toll on your body and mind, making it tough to jump back into a high-intensity or high-impact routine right away. Plus, odds are good that squeezing in a workout might take a backseat to the rest of your busy life with baby. With extra errands, appointments and friends and relatives eager to stop by, fitting in time to exercise might be more difficult than ever before!
But, on your terms, new motherhood can actually enrich your fitness routine.
Led by world-renowned yogi and new mom Briohny Smyth, DailyBurn’s new Beautiful Belly postnatal yoga series can be practiced in the comfort of your own home. Go with the flow or take things at your own speed as Briohny — with her baby Sid — demonstrates soothing sequences designed to alleviate lingering soreness from childbirth, rebuild strength and rediscover your body. Two of the three routines even include poses with baby — a truly special way for the two of you to connect while relaxing.
The new postnatal practices are part of DailyBurn’s Beautiful Belly yoga series, which includes 12 prenatal yoga practices that calm and tone throughout each trimester. Visit DailyBurn.com to try it free for 30 days.
