Happy Mother’s Day!

 

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate YOU and all the work you do. You are the anchor that keeps everything afloat, the glue that holds everything together, and when times get tough, you rise the top and put the pieces back together. It is because of moms like you, that we see the beautiful smiles in your children.

To honor our special mothers, all next week mothers are invited to stop at the Front Desk for a FREE piece of chocolate! Now if that doesn’t put a smile on your face, we don’t know what will? We hope you enjoy

FITNESS FRIDAY: Bird Dog

What’s a “Bird Dog” you say?! CHECK OUT OUR BAC VIDEO OF THE EXERCISE BELOW!

But basically it is…..On hands and knees, lift opposite arm and leg off of the floor and extend them straight. Repeat with the opposite side. For added fun, place a toy in the middle of the back and hold the position without letting it fall to the ground! This exercise improves balance, lower back and abdominal muscle strength.

FITNESS FRIDAY: Bridges

Did you know that an infant under 12 months can perform a bridge during diaper change?

Start lying on back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Press up through feet to raise hips, and hold 10 seconds. There should be a straight line between shoulders, hips and knees. This exercise improves glut and trunk strength.

 Check out this BAC video of how to perform the exercise:
