Transformation Thursday: A Yogi and so much more.

The app TimeHop reminded me the other day that it has officially been two years since I fully began the journey into yoga. Yes, I “yoga’d” before. Yes, I did it far more regularly in the second half of my pregnancy. But really, it wasn’t until I had my first flow at the mat, my […]

It’s all in your head: Getting upside down on the mat.

A few weeks back, I posted on Instagram my daily yoga pose for the challenge I was doing and noted how my own fear of core work as the result of what I’ve seen in my job as a postnatal trainer has hindered my progress in movements that directly involve the core and require a […]

Taking the “Bad” out of Bad Yogi.

For the longest time (the span of roughly a decade), I only practiced yoga once a week. Usually Sunday mornings to stretch out all the kinks of the work weeks, the workouts I’d put my body through and just life stressors. It wasn’t until the middle of my second trimester that I began to implement […]

Workout Wednesday: Baby Yoga.

Workout Wednesday: Still going & post baby goals.

It’s happened. Baby Rebel has decided to start dropping, and tugging my belly down along with him, so I had to do it. I had to buy a maternity band. It helps. Some. It doesn’t provide full relief, especially on my round ligaments, but it is better than nothing. The count down is on, he’s […]

Pressed for time & space? Quick shoulders & back.

I have been home sick for going on three days now. Despite still working during two of those days, I hit stir crazy at the end of day numero uno. And I’m guessing by the activity level inside my stomach… Baby Rebel did too. Ahhh, the pitfalls of coworkers coming to work sick. Add that […]
