Yoga Core Routine - Bikini Abs (10 minutes) 

This is a short core routine with powerful movements and poses to whittle your waist, pull everything in and help you tone a tight core for this summer’s bikini season. Focus on stability! 

I’ve been doing this set 2-3x a week for the last 2 months and I’ve noticed defined obliques, a tighter waist and firmer abs. I hope you will too!

How to Hurdlers Pose (4 minutes) 

Hurdlers Pose goes by many names and has many different entries. Try this one today and if it doesn’t come easy then pay attention to what your body is demanding. If it’s flexibility, then continue practicing the Gentle Hip Opening Routine. If it’s strength that your body wants then try the Plank Practice and hold planks every day. You’ll get there in no time!

Consuming mostly liquids over the last couple of days has helped ease the bloating and discomfort from these stubborn UC symptoms. During this time I’ve had smoothies, fresh juices, homemade puréed soups, seaweed (for salt cravings) and a well chewed raw zucchini pasta dinner. I’m feeling more alive, I know my body is healing even as it goes through these ups and downs. (I’m seriously eyeing the maternity clothes for this bloated belly!) 😳
Instead of a quick fix, this is an opportunity to connect with my body by becoming aware of the triggers through consumption, combination, habits or environment. This is my time to tune in, rest and heal. So I’m putting the phone down and checking out for the rest of today for a much needed #cellfreesunday see you tomorrow yogis 😘

I enjoyed a nice morning walk with @thebalancedlife&#8217;s Robin today! We drank tea, soaked in some sun, played with Baby Blake and had some extremely productive and motivating wife to wife, businesswoman to businesswoman conversations. We did all of this and forgot to take a picture so garage selfie it is. 😜 It&#8217;s so important to build and maintain relationships with the people who create such positive impacts in your life. 😊 Go check out her page if you haven&#8217;t already, she writes an incredible Pilates, mother, wife, balancing life blog that I follow and love! 👍

How to Fallen Angel (4 minutes) 

Fallen Angel is a beautiful pose that looks like you just fell from the heavens, once you learn it you’ll love it! Other than letting your inner angel shine, this pose strengthens your core, shoulders and arms. Keep practicing! It’s actually a lot easier than it looks ;) If you’re comfortable in Side Crow you’re just that much closer to Fallen Angel
