Yoga for Postpartum Weight Loss

Weight Loss Yoga Post Partum Folly Beach IslandFollowing a difficult pregnancy in my early 20s I found myself significantly overweight, weighing 220 pounds at almost 5’4″. I was unhappy, unhealthy, and discovering how truly difficult losing weight after pregnancy can be!

A 104 pound weight loss later gave me a second chance at life–without the use of surgery or pills.

I feel very strongly that yoga, when practiced regularly, is one of the most effective exercises to rejuvenating your body, losing weight, and feeling empowered and strong after the birth of a child. Regardless of whether you practice at home or join us at Folly Beach Island Yoga, yoga will tone the entire body. The abdominal wall is toned from the inside as well as out. This leads toward a flatter, firmer stomach as those abs begin to act as a girdle pulling inward. Arms are naturally toned in the holding and transitioning between poses with additional sculpting of the glutes (butt) and thighs. It also helps you to shave visual weight off by improving your posture naturally.

Although I tried to carefully keep my weight in check during my subsequent pregnancies, the truth is that with the next two babies I gained 90 and 60 pounds respectively…oops. Thankfully I’d had some practice with losing weight–ha! I say this because it’s so easy to get intimidated in this world of airbrushed fitness models and plastic surgery. Start where you are. You don’t need to be able to bend yourself into a pretzel or be an Instagram star to begin this journey. Yoga should never be intimidating, and it should be a very personal and achievable experience.

Interested in a postpartum specific yoga experience? Contact me for a private yoga training phone consultation.
