In a world where prenatal fitness often faces constraints, Lizzy Tomber, an expectant mother, challenges conventions by persisting in her acroyoga routine just days before delivering her baby. Her remarkable journey serves as a testament to the feasibility of maintaining an active lifestyle throughout pregnancy.
Despite the common limitations associated with prenatal fitness, Lizzy Tomber remains unwavering in her commitment to acroyoga, a dynamic fusion of acrobatics and yoga originating from India. This form of exercise entails intricate balance movements, with Lizzy and her husband, Josh Young, collaboratively crafting remarkable poses and maneuvers. Although some may perceive this practice as daring, Lizzy, with her expanding belly, courageously opts to incorporate it into her daily routine.
Throughout her pregnancy, Lizzy and her husband, who traverse the globe teaching acroyoga, took a brief hiatus from their international adventures and settled in Washington, D.C., to prepare for their baby’s arrival. Despite her impending due date, Lizzy persisted in her acroyoga practice right up until just a few days before giving birth.
Now, with her newborn son David, Lizzy is wasting no time in resuming her acroyoga routine. She’s even involving her little one, gradually introducing him to acrobatic movements. Despite David being a baby, Lizzy is taking a measured approach, stating, “He’s been practicing acrobatics since he was a baby. He can support his own neck, so we’re not in a hurry to teach him, but hopefully, he will grow up to be a child who enjoys acrobatics.”
Lizzy’s narrative serves as a testament to the notion that, with proper consultation and guidance, expectant mothers can sustain their active pursuits, challenge societal norms, and ensure a healthy pregnancy.
