Try Yoga for Strength, Flexibility & Relaxation! My Favorite Pose Is...

All day long you lift, bend and do all kinds of physical work – being a mom is hard on your body. Have you tried yoga? Not only does it work the kinks out after a long day, it also increases strength, flexibility and relaxation.

First thing in the morning or last thing at night, I do a couple poses to stretch myself out. My favorite is child’s pose (not only because of the great name!) because it makes me feel good. I kneel, tuck myself into a ball, stretch out my arms in front of me and hold the pose for as long as it feels good (usually about 20 seconds). Try it with your kids, too!

I took your advice, Elisa All Schmitz 30Seconds , and started doing child's pose first thing in the morning and before going to bed. Feels great. Now need to get back to doing an hour class like I used to.

So glad it helps you, too, Donna John ! Keeping a yoga mat near the bed helps remind me to do this...
