Kate Hudson is sharing her love of fitness with her toddler.

The Oscar nominee, 42, shared a gallery of adorable photos on Instagram Tuesday showing off a mother-daughter moment she enjoyed with 2½-year-old Rani Rose recently, cooling down from one of her workouts. In the caption, Hudson explained why staying active is important to her, and why she hopes her kids follow suit.

"Those who recover together... maybe you can finish the sentence 💪🌸," she begins, adding, "I grew up witnessing my parents take care of their bodies. People always ask me how I get motivated to stay in shape. The answer is, it's what I know. It's how I was raised. It's engrained in my brain that honoring and working our body is a gift and so I don't take it for granted."

"I loooove moving. I love when it's challenging. I love being in charge of my results," says Hudson. "And I looooove seeing my daughter have fun doing it with me. They watch everything we do! Gotta make some good moves for kids 💃🏋️‍♀️🧘‍♀️."

Speaking with PEOPLE last month, Hudson opened up about how Rani, whom she shares with boyfriend Danny Fujikawa, is quickly becoming her mini-me.

"She wants to work out with me," said Hudson, who is also mom to sons Bingham "Bing," 9, and Ryder, 17. "She gets on there, she's doing her butt exercises. She kind of does her own version of them. Turns into a little bit more of a dance move. I'm learning so quickly that this whole 'everything that is mom's is yours' when you're a girl is real."

Hudson added that she plans to pass down some of her favorite fashion pieces to her daughter, explaining that she never got to raid her own mom Goldie Hawn's closet for her stylish red carpet looks since "Mom is really good at purging and not keeping anything."

"So she kept none of her old clothes, and when I got older, I was like, 'Where are those Elia pumps, Mom? Where did you put all of those amazing dresses you wore?' And Mom's like, 'I don't know,' " said Hudson, adding of herself doing the "opposite": "I have everything. I was looking through some of the archives, and I said, when Rani is 16 and opens up this box, I'm going to live through her."
