Hi, I'm Amy Newman, creator of The Perfect 10 Workout, and a fitness expert. Right now, I'm going to show you some post natal yoga exercises that you can do after you've had a baby, and you're working back into your yoga routine. We're going to first start off with some sit ups. Nice and slow, roll your back down, and bring your hands gently behind your head, elbows wide apart. Open up your legs, and slowly go with the opposite elbow towards the knee, rounding out your back, exhaling, come back, both elbows down, inhale, relax, exhale go to the other side. Hold it, exhaling completely, come back, inhale, deep breath, exhale, round out, completely exhale all your air out. Then slowly come back, deep breathe, exhale, round up, slowly come back, and do about ten on each side. Then roll on up and cross your legs in easy pose. We're going to do a spinal twist in this direction, twisting our spine with our legs and hips forward, our hand is going to come right by our tail bone, shoulders down and you're going to look over the opposite shoulder, relax and breathe. Do everything very slow and relaxed with breath. Don't hold your breath, and then slowly you're going to switch sides, keeping your neck long, shoulders down. Breathe into your body. Visualize your body healing, stretch up through the head, breathe into yourself. Visualize light going into your abdominal area, healing all those muscles, breathe deep. Then come back and get onto your hands and knees and we can do cat pose. Hands are going to be right underneath your shoulders, knees underneath your hips. Start nice and flat, like a tabletop, and then start to arch lifting your chin, bending your elbows and lifting your tailbone. Slowly start to round out, opening up your shoulders, squeezing your abdominals up, exhaling, head is between the arms, inhale, lift up in cat pose, exhale, round up the mid-back towards the ceiling, tucking your tailbone under. Hands underneath your shoulders, breathe and do about 10, nice and slow. Those are some exercises that you can do for postnatal with yoga. I'm Amy Newman. Thank you for joining me.
