Celeb moms and moms-to-be love getting in their pregnancy as post-partum fitness: and yoga is a great way to work out, calm down, and get some quality stretching in without putting too much stress on their bodies! From beginners to total pros, check out the pics of which celeb mommies love yoga!
Hilaria Baldwin was a yoga instructor long before she became pregnant with her now 4-month old daughter, Carmen, so it’s no surprise that she continued to practice yoga while she was pregnant, and snapped right back into doing impressively difficult moves mere weeks after giving birth! Supermodel Gisele Bundchen makes yoga a family affair, and teaches her kids how to get fit!
Celebrity Moms Practicing Yoga: Hilaria Baldwin, Gisele Bundchen & More
Yoga extraordinaire Hilaria Baldwin showed off her perfect bikini bod mere months after giving birth — and she has her dedication to yoga to thank for it! The 29 year-old mom to little Carmen was snapped doing a headstand on the beach and we must say even for a die hard yogi like Hilaria, that is impressive!
Carmen is already learning to copy her mom’s yoga moves, and the little tot seems to be well on her way to be a full-fledged yogi!
Vivian Brady seems to be the best yoga buddy as she assists mom Gisele Bundchen in getting into the perfect yoga poses: we love that the mommy-daughter duo gets fit together, but Gisele makes workouts a family affair: like his sister Vivian, Benjamin Brady enjoys joining in on yoga workouts. In one of Gisele’s gorgeous photos, the four-year-old is seen striking the same pose as his supermodel mom as the two enjoy a beautiful sunset while on the beach.
Drew Barrymore is keeping fit during her second pregnancy. The soon-to-be second-time mom was seen prepping for a workout as she was spotted wearing boyfriend jeans, a creme sweater, face-framing sunglasses with yoga mat in tow: total gym chic!
Yoga For Pregnant Moms — Experts Speak
Yoga’s great exercise, and it’s easy to stick with during pregnancy. “With most exercise the rule of thumb is ‘if your doing it, like if you’ve been running your entire life, you can still run.’ With yoga, you can start because, especially pre natal classes is a little gentler, and it’s just so good for pregnancy,” Alanna Zabel of Aziam Yoga told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “It’s so good for the baby, good for your health, your mind — but not a level 3 or 4 class, I would definitely avoid that.”
So what’s the buzz about new mommy yoga all about? “Women who are going through gestation and having a child, they love the support of other mommies and they all wanna talk about what they’re going through, that no one else unless you had a baby would be able to talk about,” Alanna explained. “The community is really tight; you get to talk to other moms about what’s going on, and why are these strange things happening to my body. They just feel a really good sense of support.”
