Not for everyone, but definitely a talking point

Carlee Beanear is your typical yoga bunny mum on Instagram - or is she?

She lives in Texas with her three kids, all aged under six, and is a full-time earth mother with the most insane yoga skills you will ever see. But she is not without controversy.

Carlee started doing yoga after suffering from postnatal depression after her first child birth. When baby number two was knocking at the door - or womb - she wanted to try something different that might help with her mental health.

Yoga was the saving grace. She can be seen on Instagram doing all manners of envy-inducing poses - with many featuring her breastfeeding her children, and sometimes free bleeding, at the same time

Although some will inevitably criticise, others praise her for making such a bold statement, she says it’s all about doing something natural and necessary, while working on her own sense of wellbeing.

‘As far as breastfeeding yoga goes, anyone who has breastfed knows that it is a 24/7 dedication,’ Carlee told Metro.co.uk. ‘I believe as parents it is our duty to make that time for our self because we can not pour from an empty cup.

‘Breastfeeding yoga has helped me combat postpartum depression and has made my breastfeeding journey free of any bumps in the road, such as mastitis, worry of lacking in supply, getting over those first few weeks of tenderness, let down control and the stresses of being needed around the clock – to name a few.’
