I would be remise if I didn't recant my experience of my late prenatal days and how aspects of yoga got me through. Heck - I've been referencing my pregnancy and how it affects my practice for weeks now!
This time around, I have many more signals that baby is coming!
Pre-labour was clearly happening and I have to deal with it!
Excitement - check.
Anticipation - check.
Fatigue - check.
My husband and I opted for a doula again this time around. In our consultation, the doula reinforced the importance to relax the body during a contraction. What better way to think about relaxation other than in corpse pose or savasana.
With each cramp and prepatory contraction this week, I worked on letting my body go limp and feel like a dead weight. Trying to recall the cues given during savasana helped emphasize my "practice".
I even threw in some balanced breathing in for good measure!
All in all, my previous yoga experience helps me cope with my pending and forth coming adventure!

I've practiced yoga since I was a pre-teen and have always found it to keep me centered. I will be a teacher one day and this is my journey to discover teaching and practice.
