Happy Mothers Day

Mothers Day

Today is the day we celebrate all the lovely ladies that brought us into this world, raised us, and or who have taken the responsibility of being a mother to us.

Thank you for all your hard work and sleepless nights. For those days that felt like they would never end and for all the love and support you gave us. Without any of it we would not be the people we are today. We are who we are because of you and we thank you!

As I am a mother, I now know how much hard work and determination goes into being the best mom you can be. The strength us mothers have is unbelievable. Who knew the body could run on one hour of sleep or less. Who knew that you could still love someone so much, even when they are screaming, pooping or vomiting on you. You are doing an amazing job and don’t forget.

The love that I have for my boys is unconditional and I will never stop pushing them to be the best that they can be, because I know they are amazing!

Being a mom is Amazing!!

Yoga Newbie

I wanted to add a little more to my workout plan and thought that yoga would be the perfect fit as it is strength and stretch all in one. I have done some yoga classes in the past but let put it this way I am still very much a beginner.

So being a beginner in the yoga world I have been on the hunt for some great first-time yoga tips and I have to say I have found some good ones that I want to share. all of the ones I have found can be done in the comfort of your own home. So no need to worry about having a crazy life and feel like you can’t make those classes. Or thinking that everyone in the class is going to be better than you. This way you can work at your own pace and build your strength and flexibly.

Here are some of the top yoga poses for beginners that most yogis recommend.

  1. The Child’s Pose
  2. Downward Facing Dog
  3. Upward Facing Dog
  4. Warrior Pose  1 & 2
  5. Triangle Pose
  6. Wide Leg Forward Fold
  7. Superman Pose
  8. Chair Pose
  9. Bridge Pose
  10. Plank Pose

All these poses are great and you get a full body workout.

I was able to get them to all flow into a really nice routine and had a good hold on each pose for around 10 – 30 seconds depending on my flexibility. I started off with the Childs pose as that was a good one to work into the rest and get the muscle loose and warmed up. When doing your routine try to do a few reps of each pose to get the full effect and don’t forget to do both the right and the left side when needed.

Happy Posing
