Yoga with a babe.

Image Compliments of

 Needless to say everything has changed; here I am posting at 2am because it's my "free" time - I'm hooked up to the pump with a hands free bustier on!  So I have a bit of time to type before heading back to bed and snagging as much sleep as I can before the 5am feeding.

I have been practicing Gary Kraftsow's Viniyoga Series for Hip Therapy found here:
I think it's a great series to help restore things around my c-section area, both in terms of scar tissue and just general hip and stomach fitness.  It gets in nice and deep and is not too challenging when I'm so drained that I can't do much more.

I am headed back for my third bikram class tomorrow - I'm very excited to get into the studio.  Last class I did was quite hot and it totally left me drained... but in a good way.  It's so wonderful to work hard like that and my body craves it.  I did most of class, even added the situps in the floor series.  However I did sit some sets late standing series and was very much "done" by the end of class.

We will see what tomorrow brings.

So the first few months with a babe is so hunched over!  And so much time parked under my little man, sitting.  My hips and lower back don't feel great I'll just say that.  I would be doing bikram every day if I could but I'm still pretty sleep deprived and unless he sleeps during the day, I don't have a chance to practice, even in a non-heated way (like just dabbling.)  Still, I will get my practice and my body back.  It's just a matter of time.
