Hey friends! Hope you had a good weekend! I’m a little behind because I’ve been out of the county on a fun, but short trip! More details to come! But let’s talk about some prenatal yoga!
I’ve always been a huge fan of yoga, even before I was pregnant. Now that I’m pregnant, I love it even more. If my back is aching, my feet are swollen or I’m just feeling a bit tired, yoga just has a way of making me feel more energized yet also relaxed. Of course, with everything in pregnancy, modifications are necessary. I’ve put together a few of my favorite prenatal yoga moves that I’ve found either work well for pregnancy or are easily modified.* Enjoy!
Readers, what’s your favorite yoga pose? Have you ever done something that is both relaxing and energizing at the same time? Do you use yoga more for stretching or strengthening?
* These moves are based on my own practice and my own ability level. Always do what feels best for your body and your baby. Consult a physician before doing this or any other form of exercise. Seek a certified yoga instructor for guidance on how to perform each move.
With my recent exercise restriction, I was thinking of asking you for some good prenatal yoga stretches to do. I’ve been doing cat/cow a lot the past 8 months, but I’m not the most knowledgable when it comes to yoga. Thanks!
Prenatal yoga has seriously been a life saver for me! When by back starts to hurt and I’m feeling super achy, I do some yoga moves and it really makes such a difference. It loosens everything up and I agree that it does make you feel reenergized.
Agreed, yoga always makes me feel more looser and relaxed! Lately I’ve been loving this one pose and I don’t even know the official name of it… but it’s a lunge where you clasp your hands behind your back. If feels so good on my shoulders and back!
Excellent workout as always. It's challenging, fun and easily one of my favorite workouts!
Fantastic class! Great technique pointers. Always new exercises to challenge oneself!
I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!
Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.
My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
