The pregnancy is over, baby is here and you are super eager to get back into your regular yoga or fitness routine but it’s important to understand that your body has gone through significant changes from both pregnancy itself as well as your birth (vaginal or caesarean).
The postpartum time is a time of learning how to care for this tiny human you created and dealing with his or her needs; however, it is also a time of great physical and emotional healing for YOU! Often as new moms we put all our needs, wants, dreams, and goals on the back burner and get ready to settle into our “mommy role”, but in reality we need to take care of ourselves first so that we can function at full capacity and be the best mommies we can be!
Whether you’re new to the practice of yoga, or a seasoned yogi, there are so many benefits to coming to the mat while pregnant. Some women practice all the way up to their delivery date because there are so many ways to modify and adjust yoga poses to make them comfortable at any stage of pregnancy. Your trained instructor is there to assist you into all postures and offer helpful tips and props to support your practice. The added bonus is you leave class feeling amazing, both physically and mentally with a deeper connection to your growing baby.
