Posted on February 03, 2021

Dancer, actress and mom Jenna Dewan appears on the March cover of Women’s Health magazine, on newsstands February 9. Inside, the 40-year-old spills how going with the flow has taken her down a path to greater self-acceptance, her secret to getting fit fast, and why she’s excited for the future.

 

 

 

 

On giving birth to her second child, Callum, in March 2020, just days before stay-at-home orders went into effect: “I was in this postpartum-haze bubble, then a week later, everything just shut down. It was new; it was different; it was kind of scary. But we were all in it together.”

On leaning into unexpected curves: “I had this grand idea that with this baby, I’m going to have friends and family over all the time. Talk about expectations and having to surrender.”

On taking a break from the hustle: “I’ve learned for the very first time what it means to actually be quiet. I’ve never been a homebody, and I love it.”

On using breathwork as a major component of her mindfulness routine: “It’s very effective for stress. You’re creating this rush of oxygen through your nervous system. It can be a little uncomfortable at first, but once you get passed that, you really open yourself up.”

On her exercise of choice – Pilates: “It gets you fit so fast, and just you just feel stronger. The dancer in me really likes it because it activates the same muscles in my core. You feel things all just start to go where they’re meant to go.”

On keeping a perpetual rhythm in her home: “I’m always dancing, even in the kitchen. Callum laughs and smiles when I dance, especially when I give him a good hair whip. It’s as if it’s the funniest thing that ever happened. And Evie’s always like, ‘Dance party time!’”

On trying her hand at cooking: “In the beginning of quarantine, I was trying to cook more. But then people in the house were like, ‘You’ve got a lot of strengths. I don’t know if cooking in one of them…’”

On turning 40 in December: “I feel better in my skin. I feel more grounded in my body. I feel excited for this next decade and what is available to create. Even in this crazy year, I still have that feeling.”
