I practised yoga every day while I was pregnant with my both my children, Sofia and Nicolas, and I was constantly amazed at how yoga helped my pregnancy.
Yoga brought a feeling of lightness to my body by strengthening my spine and limbs. It created a feeling of ‘extra space’ within. During times of emotional stress it brought me back to my calm centre.
Yoga allowed me, through breathing, relaxation and visualization, to develop a strong and intuitive relationship with my body and baby. Yoga helped make my pregnancy a truly memorable time in my life – a journey into the heart of motherhood, and a deepening experience of womanhood.Lainie
