“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”
When I first started the training program (7 months pregnant) I felt weak and at times down on myself for being limited by my own body but as time went on I realized it became an advantage for me. I no longer put so much emphasis on the depth of my poses and flexibility but rather I focused from within. Focusing on the mental and spiritual aspect as opposed to the physical, helped transform my practice and myself. Soon the physical changes came anyway. I only hope to be able to teach and inspire others to find this in their own practice in the future.
Favorite preggo yoga posesReverse Warrior / Viparita Virabhadrasana - anything that stretches out my rib cage is like magic and this also is a great quad burner.
Camel Pose / Ustrasana- Energizes and awakens.
Triangle Pose / Trikonasana - Opens up my chest but most importantly my hips which become tight and achy with a growing baby pushing on them.
