Yoga for Fitness

Doing yoga after giving birth is not just a great way to get back in shape, but it can also help new moms deal with the pressures and stress of caring for a young child.

Even just a few minutes can rev up the heart, tighten soft abdominal muscles and bring a sense of energy and vitality to a woman who has just given birth. Plus, since all you need to do yoga is a just few "quiet" minutes, and a yoga mat, it can be done while your new baby sleeps or simply kicks around in his or her bouncy seat. And its ability to help a woman lose weight and tone up while keeping stress down, yoga may offer benefits in helping to prevent the symptoms of postpartum depression.

It is important for any new mom to get approval for her doctor before starting or continuing on with a yoga practice.
