”When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” ~Patañjali
The beautiful teachings of Yoga guru Patanjali we too can apply during the tender time of our pregnancy and post natal care. Yoga has been a profound practice in my life and has helped me exponentially during the pregnancy and labour of my children.
Prenatal yoga not only helps relieve tension in our changing bodies but helps us prepare mentally and spiritually for the changes ahead & recovery postnatally.
Practicing yoga when we are pregnant helps with the bond between you and baby. It helps bring your awareness inward to your internal environment through the body breath connection. Through asana practice we awaken to areas of tighteness in our bodies and gently work with these areas through our breath work & our calm awareness. Learning these tools throughout our pregnancy enables us to apply them during our labour & beyond, working with the ebbs and flows of intensity from a calm state of being. Yoga teaches us to be comfortable in uncomfortable situations enabling us to handle life’s challenges more in control and peacefully, pre and postnatally.
