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!
