Prenatal Yoga in Orange County

My belly is growing bigger daily, my body is starting to ache a bit more & my "normal" exercise routine is getting more uncomfortable daily. Luckily, one aspect of of exercise regime doesn't have to change... my yoga practice. In fact prenatal yoga is often encouraged because it helps you learn to breathe deeply & relax - something that will come in handy in the next the couple of months!

Baby Center has some great tips regarding prenatal yoga: "Seek out an instructor who is specifically trained in prenatal yoga, but if that's not possible, make sure your instructor knows you're expecting... Be aware, that your slowly expanding girth will affect your sense of balance. Don't try to hold poses for a long time, and remember to sink into yoga positions slowly & carefully to avoid injury. Take your time and don't overdo it. During the second-trimester avoid lying flat on your back now, too, to keep blood flowing properly to your uterus."

Looking for something you can do from home? Check out THESE yoga poses that are recommending during pregnancy, or try THIS DVD.

I did Bikram Yoga in Costa Mesa during my pregnancy - it felt great!

Lauren at Cloud 9 Yoga in Huntington Beach is amazing. She's so compassionate & is also in training to be a birth doula & eventually a midwife. She truly loves helping pregnant women find peace & calm during a miraculous time in their lives. Check her out on Monday, Tuesday, & Friday at 10:30.
