emoticon back, I found these articles in Yoga Journal:

how familiar are you with the poses? are you familiar with restorative Yoga? The poses in the first one are great after childbirth and the lady in the second article also mentions child pose, cat/cow pose, and listening to your body.
The Challenges are a good way to get into a daily practice, because you get into the routine. In my opinion, if you set a time for yourself when the baby sleeps, either you sleep with him/her or do the poses from the first article and practice breathing, which as you know is very important, the so ham breathing technique (so- inhale, ham-exhale) to focus an get into meditation and then sleep to catch up . Babies need a lot of attention and you need to take care of yourself and the baby. Brief, take it easy, listen to your body, take time for yourself and breath! Namaste! emoticon

Hello! I am an old Spark member who just came back with a new account...and a new BABY! Yoga has been a real necessity for me as I stretch out my sore hips and my exceedingly crooked back (babies are heavy!)

Do you have any tips/advice for new mamas who are very tired? How did you get in your yoga or meditation on a daily basis?

I have a pretty high-needs little one.

Thank you! Namaste.
