We all know being a new Mom can be very hectic. Between diaper changing and nursing, you feel like you don't even have time to take a shower, let alone workout! When my daughter was born, I was dying to get back to working out. All I could do was few minutes here and there...a quick workout while she was napping. Then I realized that it was working! I didn’t need the gym or the standard “hour” for my workout, all I needed was a mini workout using my own body a few times a day. And that’s how "Mommy Workouts" was born!!!

I'm a yoga teacher, mom and a wife, raising our Czech-Mex kiddos and a Weimaraner in sunny San Diego. I'm at my happiest outdoors, barefoot, spending time with our kids, teaching them about the simple things in life and being happy. I always try to sneak in some yoga, even just for few minutes, it makes me feel very content and energized. I found my calling in teaching yoga, anything from vinyasa to prenatal classes. I created Mommy Workouts to celebrate being a new mom, having your baby with you and moving your body. What better prescription for happiness? I hope you are enjoying my workouts. Let me know what you think!
