Yoga For Two – Om In Our Home

Om In Our Home

We are thrilled to bring you a guest post from our amazing Ambassador Natiya Guin. Here are her tips for maintaining mental and physical balance in motherhood.

As a For Two Fitness AmbassadorIMG_7970 - Version 2 (1) , and an avid yogi, I learned the simplest and most profound lessons of my life through becoming a parent. The following 3 reminders keep my family living each day to the fullest:

Put Yourself First

Learning to take time for our sleep, exercise, and even a massage now and then helps to make parents emotionally and physically available to our children.   We can handle stresses with more calm, more creativity, and more love when we feel strong and balanced.

Do Your Best, and Forget the Rest

Parents don’t need to be perfect, we just need to show up.  As long as we are there for our children with readiness and support, they are getting what they need from us. Parenting isn’t rocket science, it is love.

Play everyday! Dad and I always make time for a dance party, even if for only the length of one silly song.  This spontaneous time is as important for parents as it is for kids.  Loosen up, let go, and have fun bonding with family.

More about Natiya: She is a practicing yogi, a fitness photographer and Naturopathic Doctoral Candidate. Check out her work at  Natiya Guin Photography.

*Natiya attributes her healthy pregnancies to a balanced lifestyle and to the support of her yoga teacher, Desi Bartlett. See Natiya and Denise Antonini wearing For Two Fitness tops in Desi’s new Prenatal DVD release by Gaiam!
