Hello dear mama, and welcome to week 52 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
You’ve made it through the 4th trimester! Baby is about 3 months old now, tummy time and holding their head up are likely occurring. You are both ready to take on the world together!
I am mother
Mountain pose – Tadasana
Time to stand tall, firm, and grounded in your body and new role as mother. Find your standing pose again as you embark on your yoga practice now, maybe with an added buddy!
Recommended Yoga Class
This flow is short, easy (all on our mat, no standing postures), and a good introduction back into your practice after having been postpartum for about 2 months! Welcome back! This class is made for during pregnancy, but is appropriate for postpartum as well. (You may adapt any of my prenatal yoga classes into postpartum classes, and stay tuned for postpartum classes!).
*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!
How do you feel about your new identity as a “mother”? Do you feel any other parts of yourself have gone by the wayside? What other new identities have you welcomed in? What do you most look forward to in the future? What does motherhood look like to you? In a year from now? 5 years? 10 years?
Please feel free to share your responses below, so we can all help each other on this journey!
