Yoga is definitely something I want to get back into. I tried postnatal yoga and loved it. Now the time feels right to push myself and my body, to reap the rewards of building a strong core.

Its years since I did Yoga, have fear of being upside down. I do a modified routine with Pilates. I thrive on the mental well being and mindset it gives me.
