Preparing for a new baby may be one of the biggest events you’ll experience in a lifetime. As a woman, your body is changing constantly while mentally you prepare for birth and what a brand new member of your family means to your way of life.
In the midst of it all yoga can be a valuable tool for birthing mothers and their partners to remain calm, grounded and present during the transitions of pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. This simple five-minute flow from Namaste teacher and new mom Annemaria Rajala is perfect for sneaking in a few moments of self-care. Enjoy this prenatal yoga practice in the morning, evening, or even on a lunch break!
For Annemaria, yoga is a uniquely personal practice. She writes, “It is a constant inquiry into how to deepen my awareness and take care of myself so I can better take care of the world around me.”
