For the first time since she have birth to her first son just seven months ago, 28-year-old supermodel, yogi, and organic skin care entrepreneur, Miranda Kerr hit the runway -- thanks to yoga!
When asked about getting back into supermodel shape, Miranda told the Sydney Morning Herald:
"I did yoga during the whole pregnancy but, honestly, I totally gave my body over. I didn't care if I got stretch marks, I didn't care if I didn't get back into shape. My main focus was to have a healthy child and it didn't matter to me if I could model or not. I didn't have any aims to get back in shape. I'm also breastfeeding, which I think helps get everything back into shape but I was really happy because I have my skincare line, I've got my book, I'm happy to be a mum, so I wasn't pressed to get back to work but I thought that if I can balance it, I might as well do a little [modelling] while I can because it's a short-lived job compared to others."Miranda on the link between practicing yoga and meditating while pregnant leading to a calm boy:
"I'm really lucky because I have a good-natured boy. When I was pregnant, I practised hypnobirthing, which is a daily meditation, and I practice a lot of yoga and I think that had a lot to do with him being calm because that was the first energy he felt."Namaste to that!
