As a breastfeeding mother, I crave workouts that take me on a spiritual-emotional transformation as well as a physical one. Here are my instructors...
1. Everybody Yoga
Witnessing Jessamyn's flexibility inspired me to celebrate my healthy curves. She teaches how to release tensions in the hips in order to open up the body on multiple levels.
2. Kukuwa Fitness
If you're a danceaholic, you will love exploring Africa through music and dance with Coach Cass and her mom from Kukuwa Fitness.
3. Tiffany Rothe
Dance coach and body instructor, Rachael Okesola, uses afro-beats and grounded movements to make exercising fun.
5. Dance Ropes
This wombman-man duo fuse dance with jump rope. Their 4 minute videos combine the expertise of a Nigerian fitness instructor and rhythmic moves from Afrifitness.
Beyonce's Black is King was a heart-led project that continues to speak life into my spirit. I replay the lyrics multiple times while practicing my moves.
7. Michael Jackson
Michael has a bunch of family-friendly music with a powerful message. The kids and I love to free-style for an hour (or more) to his classics.
8. The Sun
I used to have a gym membership. But the demands of nursing frequently interfered with me getting to the gym during babysitting hours. Eventually I bought a double stroller and bikes to make family-friendly walks fun for everyone.
Please know full breasts, spread hips and thick thighs are all healthy signs of motherhood. The goal in working out is not to lose them, but to strengthen your natural shape.

Until next time...
