Prenatal Yoga helps you focus more deeply on your pregnancy. You will feel more in touch with yourself, more connected and you will be reassured that the power to give birth and to nurture your baby once it is born is within you and nowhere else.
No matter how busy you might be, yoga will help you cope with your life in a more relaxed and focused way. It has an amazing way of making more space and energy available for you.

Breathing serves as a powerful tool to navigate contractions, reduce anxiety, and find a profound sense of calm amidst the intensity of labor. These breathing techniques I'll teach you also support the strength and stability of your core and pelvic floor.

Tips for a lovely online practice
Set the space
I suggest making some nourishing tea and having the room cozy and comfortable. Maybe light some incense or a candle. Talk to your family/house mates beforehand and ask them to respect your yoga time and be quiet and not disturbing you.
Besides your yoga mat, you might want to have some pillows, blankets, and anything else to make you extra comfortable. PJs are not only allowed, they are encouraged! Bras are always optional :)
Also, make sure you sign in 5 minutes before we begin to make sure all the tech works and maybe have a chat.
