Jupiter Ascending actress Mila Kunis is pregnant and focused on staying healthy for herself and for her baby.
Kunis, who is engaged to That '70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher, has not stopped working out because of her pregnancy. The actress has been taking prenatal yoga classes which incorporates pregnancy-safe yoga poses, dance and meditation, E! News reported.
According to Baby Center, yoga is beneficial for expecting mothers because it helps them learn to breathe deeply and relax. The breathing technique is called ujjayi and requires you to take in air slowly through your nose, filling your lungs, and exhale completely until your stomach compresses. Learning ujjayi is essential for pregnant women who are preparing to face the physical demands of labor, birth and motherhood, that site noted.
Not to mention, Baby Center added that yoga, combined with walking or another light form of cardiovascular exercise, is an ideal way to keep pregnant women limber, tone their muscles, improve their balance and circulation with little strain on their joints.
Kunis combines her prenatal yoga classes in Hollywood with calorie-burning spin classes at Blazing Saddles studio in Sherman Oaks, E! noted.
“Spinning is a no-impact aerobic exercise program that takes place on a specially designed stationary bicycle and can be done by people of all fitness levels,” according to the Blazing Saddles website.
The parents-to-be just returned home from a trip to Louisiana, where Kunis got her pregnancy craving for Mexican food satisfied. E! News reported that the actors dined at Tacos and Beers restaurant in Old Town, Louisiana. Kunis had carne asada dish with tea and water. On another occasion, Kunis got her Mexican food fix at Casa Vega restaurant in Los Angeles where she shared guacamole, a fajita salad and fish tacos with a close friend.
Yet, Kunis hasn’t been letting her yoga and spinning go to waste by constantly indulging on Mexican food, E! News stated. In between fajitas and tacos, the future Mrs. Ashton Kutcher buys local produce from grocers like Ralph’s in Studio City.
