We are so, so proud to bring to you another amazing addition to our Fit Mom Ambassador Family, Leah Vernon. Read more to learn all about Leah’s journey of health and fitness and her tips for maintaining a healthy pregnancy.
My name is Leah, and I am extremely excited and honored to be a part of the For Two Fitness Ohana.
I am a mommy of one amazing two year old boy named Ambrose, and the owner of my other baby, Yoga Kai, a Stand Up Paddle board Yoga business that operates out of Honolulu, Hawai’i.
My husband and I had been talking about adding to our ohana, and received the news in April that we were expecting. I had not been into SUP yoga when I was pregnant with my son, so this time around I have more to balance. Sharing yoga and fitness is my passion and profession, and I wanted my pregnancy to contribute to my teachings, which it definitely has. The benefits of staying active are endless and I find that it helps ease the many symptoms that come along with pregnancy. We all have our off days, but during pregnancy it is especially important to listen to your body. Kick those feet up and relax when needed and drink lots and lots of water. I also find it very helpful to pay attention to your heart rate. Keeping your heart rate in a safe zone and slowing things down is important during pregnancy.
My pregnancy activities include Stand Up Paddle Yoga, Beach Yoga, running, and functional intense training for women at Kaia Fit Oahu where I also get to coach like minded women striving to live happy and healthy lives. Follow my fit pregnancy and lifestyle on instagram @yogakaihawaii and feel free to check out my blog at yogakaipaddleyoga.com where I share other healthy lifestyle tips. Aloha friends!
