The first trimester of pregnancy can be joyful but full of nausea, fatigue and the unknown. The intention of this class is to ground mamas and lead them through postures that will not agitate their symptoms or contribute to any worry or stress in the most sensitive developmental time of their pregnancy.

WOW

I'm super grateful for this class, thank you so much! I've been an active DYWM user but since the start of my second pregnancy I put my mat aside for a bit of time. I missed doing yoga so much that I desperately browsed through the classes today when I accidentally bumped into this awesome course! It was exactly what I needed!:) A bit of stretching and rotations but not too much. It's going to be a lifesaver for me for the upcoming weeks! <3 I can't wait to try your other prenatal classes. Is any of them also recommended for the 1st trimester? many thanks and greetings from chilly Budapest.

Prenatal yoga for first trimester

Hello! Thank you for joining us from Budapest! Any of my prenatal classes are fine for any trimesters- we just made this class particularly suitable. There will also be two more classes coming that we filmed in late December that are suitable for later in your pregnancy. Because pregnancy is so variable from person to person I would just skip any postures that feel wrong in your body- if you have any blood pressure issues avoid making fast transitions and just be mindful about inverting for too long :) all the best in your journey

I'm so sad that this went subscribers only. I've been doing it for a few weeks since I found out I was pregnant, and I am really going to miss it.

Tried this for fibroids

It’s hard to find a practice for fibroids and thought I’d try a pre-natal class. It doesn’t seem to have aggravated them so will try again.

It would be wonderful if someone would put together a class for women dealing with fibroids.

Fibroids
Sarah Jane Steele 2 months ago

Hello and thank you for your comment on the class. Currently I also study in the faculty of Medicine studying Midwifery and my little bit of research has shown that yoga may help with the sensations of fibroids but, as I am sure you know, not the elimination of them as the pathology of them is a bit more complex, some folks require removal of them and some find they need to pair yoga, acupuncture etc. with dietary changes. Here is one research article explaining that. However, we may be able to develop a class down the line that would assist with the symptoms of fibroids, endometriosis and the like but, also dialoging with ones midwife, doctor, OB is still reccomended so as to forma tandem approach to the symptoms of fibroids. I'm glad the class was helpful for you. Thank you for your comment: See article here: https://rdcu.be/93Co

Thanks the article. I will read it. I am waiting for surgery and in the meantime want to continue a safe practice. It would be wonderful to have a class because of all the women who suffer from them.
