Stay Close to Your Heart

Pre/Post Natal | By Elena Brower on Apr 24 2012
Staying close to your heart is always a challenge when you're a new mama; with this post-natal practice you'll have 20 minutes to practice sun salutations, some strong standing poses, even an arm balance to play with as you get stronger - all with the reminder to stay close to your heart and listen well to your body.

    Great practice! I am surprised how strong my arms are from all my baby lifting :) This was just what I needed to bring myself back. 20 mins seems to be the magic number for this new muma.

    i'm not a mama, but i replaced baby/child with "heart" and pretended it was a practice to be a mama to myself. and i loved it. xx elena!

    It should be written in the title or description more clearly that this is a post-natal practice. I though this is pre-natal, but some of the twists and back bends may not be appropriate for a pregnant woman.

      Catherine - Thank you for your note. Though Elena does mention it is a post-natal class in the video and "new mama" is in the description, we've added "post-natal" to the description to make this even clearer.

        I just started doing this (3 months pregnant) because it says pre/post.. so I assumed it was ok for prenatal.. but being on your stomach isn't ok while pregnant. I think "pre" needs to be taken out of the title altogether.
        • Kelly Branco     Feb 21st, 2013
          Eh.. just ignore that.. I didn't realize that they all say "pre/post" in the title. This was my first class.

    I enjoyed this session, and found that my new-mom body is much weaker than my pre-baby yoga body. I had to take it slow (down dog/chaturanga/updog were a challenge) but I think I will repeat the video many times over the next few weeks and see my progress quite quickly. Thank you, Namaste

    I have a 6weeks old baby girl and slowly getting back to my practice.. Just what I needed, thank you! <3

    I enjoyed this. I was mother to my mother. I didn't realize it was pre-natal until I heard you say it. I decided to continue with it any way. Since when has anything you do on Yogaglo not helped me? I needed a warm up for my 3 hours of African dance and can't do too much before. It unkinked me, just what I needed because it seemed to have everything in a short space.
