A new class. No more of my favorite Martha Stewart impersonating yoga instructor.

This morning was my first prenatal yoga class. I knew that it wouldn't be quite as demanding as my other class, but I didn't know how incredibly right I was.

We got in some good wrist stretches.

And mountain pose. A little tree pose if you felt like it.

And Savasana.

Don't get me wrong. I love me some Savasana. Usually though, it's nice to have broken a sweat before you get there.

I think I'm going to just have to go to both classes. I can't seem to give up my other one.

But hey. Did you notice how much better my typing is now that I've had a good wrist workout?

I'm with you, sister! I hate all those wussy pre-natal classes... that is, until I'm about eight and a half months, and so "beached" (as in WHALE) that I just can't struggle through the regular exercise classes without running the risk of turning-turtle and not being able to get back up on my own.

You just keep right on going with the class you LOVE, so long as you feel able to!! You'll know if you're overdoing it. The only two things to keep in mind are 1) not to over-heat yourself, and 2) don't lie on your back for any length of time, as the weight of the baby puts pressure on your circulatory system, and will stress sweet Little Bird.

I took serious ballet classes all throughout my first pregnancy, and yoga right through my third. When I was on bedrest with Child Number Two, I nearly went berzerk!!
