Some Final Tips for Your Online Prenatal Yoga Program
Each trimester of your pregnancy is different and so your yoga practice needs to be adjusted accordingly throughout.
During your first trimester, your energy will likely be at an all-time low. If not, you’re super lucky! But for many, hormones skyrocket as the embryo implants on the uterine wall, which may drain a lot of energy.
During your second trimester, you’ll probably get a boost of energy back and start to “show.” This can be a really nice time to connect with your little one through a modified yoga practice. At this point, you’ll want to avoid laying on your belly and your back.
In your final trimester, your belly will start to expand a lot and limit your mobility in some ways. You’ll likely feel ready to give birth at this point but you might feel anxious about the birthing process or the expectations of motherhood.
Your body always knows best, so listen to it carefully during this precious time.
This might be a nice time to again turn to breathwork and meditation while also maintaining a modified yoga practice if it feels appropriate for you.
Throughout your pregnancy, avoid retention of your breath and any postures that put pressure on your belly. If during any practice, something feels wrong, stop immediately. Your body always knows best, so listen to it carefully during this precious time.
Your practice can be a beautiful way to connect with your child and to reestablish a connection with your changing body. Use it in all of its capacities to help you expand and grow (both physically and mentally) on this beautiful journey of pregnancy into motherhood.
