I am strong
Solar Plexus (Manipura)
Warrior 1 – Virabhadrasana 1
Warrior 1 is a transitional posture in Sun Salutation B. It can also be used as a static power pose, helping you build leg strength and core power. You can modify to low lunge, by lowering the back knee.
Recommended Yoga Class
Welcome to this power class! The solar plexus, the energy center and the center of being, focuses on strength and power. In the physical, we know you are strong – you are growing a whole human! And you will birth that baby! What’s stronger than that? And in the emotional, mental, spiritual – what’s more powerful than raising a child? This is one of the greatest challenges of our human experience, and you will power through it – I know it! This quick power flow will go through a few sun salutations and hit all three warrior postures, 1, 2, and 3. Because mama you are a WARRIOR!
*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!
Observe your mental and emotional strength. What have your conquered so far in your pregnancy that you didn’t think you’d be able to? Where is credit due? What obstacles can you celebrate overcoming?
Please feel free to share your responses below, so we can all help each other on this journey!
