Her athleticism is amazing!
She practices yoga in Woodlands, Texas, but her superhuman moves and photographs have amazed people worldwide. She is the mother of three and started practicing yoga after the birth of her second child. Her name is Carlee Benear and recently she spoke with Huffington Post:
“Being a stay-at-home mom, I needed some kind of release,” Benear told The Huffington Post. “Yoga was the best discovery for me and my family. My practice took off, I embarked with my children, on an incredible journey of self discovery.”
When she became pregnant with Maramaylee, the mom continued with her yoga routine and said she sensed a special connection with her unborn daughter. This bond continued after Maramaylee’s birth.
“Once she was born we were inseparable as well,” Benear said. “After a few weeks of staring at her every move, I felt the urge to get back on my mat and step back into my practice with this fresh new joy surrounding me.”
“Once we started feeding and flowing, a spark ignited,” she added. “Having her there with me flowing off of my energy helped me stay relaxed through the struggles of early breastfeeding. Some people relax by sitting in a chair or on a couch, I find my zen within my body.”
Carlee’s images and videos are incredible. Take a look:

This video was so far from what I intended on doing it’s amazing to watch. Truth be told, I actually fell instead of dropped into pinch. Then I decided with that leap of faith, and in catching myself, to try something new. The Divine dwells within you as you yourself, exactly the way you are. It isn’t interested in watching you enact some performance of personality in order to comply with some crackpot notion that you have about how a spiritual person looks or behaves. We all seem to get this idea that, in order to be sacred, we have to make some massive, dramatic changes of character , that we have to renounce our individuality. This is a classic example of what they call in the East “wrong thinking”. Everyday renunciants find something new to renounce, but it is usually depression, not peace, that they attain. What is your natural character? As Sextus, the ancient Pythagorean philosopher said,” The wise man is always similar to himself.” #eatpraylove #postpartumhealth #divineyourself #selflove #toetaptuesday CORK MAT AND BLOCK @ilovegurus LEGGINGS @urbanizzy TOP @zobha
Fact about me, I can not read anything by #mayaangelou without weeping a little. 🙌 “To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” —Maya Angelou #momgoals #manifestinggreatness #breastfeedingyoga #postpartumhealth #selflove #wildbabesmovement #divineyourself WEARING @lularoebridgetpugh
