Hello dear mama, and welcome to week 1 of your pregnancy journey, and yoga practice!
Here you will find bonus content for my Week by Week Pregnancy Yoga Journal (scroll down to download it for FREE if you haven’t already!).
Weekly Pregnancy/Baby Update
Did you know that pregnancy is measured by your entire monthly cycle? Meaning the first week is after your period, when you enter your fertile window, as the egg begins to drop for fertilization. So even though you technically aren’t pregnant yet, the countdown starts now!
I am worthy
Savasana is a very important posture, as simple as it looks. Take rest often during your first trimester. This is when your body expends the most energy!
Recommended Yoga Class
I hope you’re faring well on your pregnancy journey! You might be experiencing some exhaustion – and believe me, I’ve been there! Our bodies are doing SO much work, especially in those early weeks, that it can be hard to keep your eyes open. Especially if you work or are taking care of other kids! If you’ve carved out some time for you to be here – bravo! In this class, we are embracing fatigue. We are allowing our bodies to rest, to destress, to work so hard on the inside, building, and growing our little miracle. So grab some yoga props (maybe a pillow!), get into a comfy outfit, and let’s rest! Reward here – this class has a full 10 minute savasana =)
*I am constantly updating recommended classes as I add more yoga classes to my YouTube library! Check back often for updates!
**Every body, woman, practice, and pregnancy is different. If the suggested class for this week does not suit you this week for any reason, please feel free to look for a different one on my YouTube channel. Trust your body and listen to your birth team!
