Weekly Pregnancy/Baby Update
Baby is getting big – 6 oz and up to 5 inches long. This is big enough for some mamas to begin feeling flutters in their belly! That might not be gas mama – it could be your baby moving!
I am powerful
Solar Plexus (Manipura)
Warrior 2 – Virabhadrasana 2
Warrior 2 shows up in Sun Salutation B. This is a great hip opener, leg and arm strengthener, and test of your resolves! Try to hold for five full breaths.
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!
