“Don’t get me wrong, I love yoga! But my first pre-natal yoga experience was just awful.”
I went to my first session this weekend. To be honest, I’m quite disappointed. I mean, yes, I expected to do a lot of breathing exercises, but I thought there was going to be a lot of stretching as well. Maybe it’s just me; I’m a beginner at pregnancy yoga after all. But the session that I went to didn’t leave me feeling amazing or revitalise (which is so unlike all the yoga sessions I’ve been to before I was pregnant). It certainly didn’t relieve any tensions in my muscles; in fact, it made my lower back pain worst (which, again, never happened before). The studio itself wasn’t great – it was dirty and didn’t have a relaxing feel to it. Anyway, I didn’t feel good. There are quite a few more other places that offer pre-natal yoga in my area; I’m going to try another one next weekend and I’ll let you know how it goes.
In the meantime, I found this YouTube video and the routine looks pretty good – I might just try it out before the weekend.
