Hello mamas and papas and welcome to our latest giveaway with our lovely sponsor Onzie Yogawear. On my body you’ll see some lovely capri leggings and on top, a comfy, stretchy bra.
Here I am on Spain’s Costa Brava performing three legged downward facing dog pose, often known as one legged dog. Easy to execute, this pose is great for strengthening your glutes as well as your abs, legs and arms all at once. It’s a great pose to try when you have just a few minutes to breathe, move your body, and save your sanity!
What do you wear to work out during the summer months? Weigh in and enter our giveaway!
To perform three legged downward facing dog pose, enter into downward facing dog for several deep breaths. While inhaling, extend your right leg high and back lifting it up toward the ceiling. Keep your pelvis low, allowing your hips to open along your front. Squeeze your butt! Push your top heel away and your bottom heel down, maintaining the pressure on your hands. Keep your neck loose. You can stay here for several breaths, and then bend your right knee allowing your foot to drop to the left, opening up your hip. While your foot drops, stack your hips directly on top of each other. Your body will be pulling your weight to shift left, but resist this by keeping your weight evenly distributed and dropping your right shoulder so that your upper body remains square.
Yoga keeps my spirits high during many trying days with my kiddos. When I don’t have to time to make it to a yoga class, I pull out my mat for a few minutes, concentrate on my breath, and move through a few vinyassa poses. Even a 10 minute personal yoga “retreat” can be enough to restore your sense of calm, and your center. Refer to this when your kids drive you so crazy that you want to yell out! Suck the air into your belly and dream of that alone time on your mat. Do it, mamas! I helps, I promise!
The Best Yoga Pants and More!
And what better clothes to wear for such uplifting moments than Onzie’s modern, comfortable yoga wear. Having had the honor of working with Onzie for several years now, I am truly addicted to their light, breathable fabrics, fun patters and terrific fit. The clothes never lose their shape, and morph from flattering gym leggings into sexy out-on-the-town cool leggings! Throw on some fun flats and a top and you’re good to go for a coffee with a friend. Heels and a leather jacket and you look great for a casual dinner. As a busy mom, don’t fuss and choose what works.
Thanks so much for reading and Namaste!
