Bea Love's Inspiration for Prega Yoga:
Yoga has played a remarkable role in my life, most especially during pregnancy. My yoga practice was a pivotal part of ensuring I experienced enjoyable pregnancies, two unmedicated vaginal births, short labors and uncomplicated deliveries. I still remember with both my labors using my breath and body awareness to help in pain management for the challenges of delivering two posterior positioned babies,“sunny-side up.”
During first few weeks of post-partum period, breathwork and restorative poses helped me recover from post-labor fatigue, helped balance body and mind and helped with quantity and quality of breast milk. In months following, my practice evolved helping tone abdominal organs and getting my body back.
Prenatal yoga gave me mindfulness of breath, physical strength, and the ability to envision what was happening to my body during labor. During my first trimester with my daughter, breath awareness and feeling the ground beneath my feet in standing postures helped me overcome morning sickness and fatigue-especially in my second pregnancy caring for a toddler while pregnant. In my second pregnancy, I experienced nausea and constipation during the first trimester while experiencing low back pain, sciatica and round ligament pain in the second and third trimesters.
Before I gave birth, my prenatal practice helped me feel more comfortable in my growing body, allowed me to spend time connecting to my growing baby and relax in ways that I knew were safe for me and baby. It felt so good to be in the privacy of my home finding yoga poses, and breathing techniques to ease the physical discomforts I was experiencing, as well as renewing my energy, and feeling connected to both my body and baby. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy connecting with other mamas and experiencing community in public classes but navigating childcare can create obstacles to getting my self-care done. As a mom of two, my self-care practice needs to be easily accessible in the comfort of my home, efficient, and powerfully effective.
Yoga helped keep me sane as my body changed dramatically during pregnancy. Now, in motherhood chasing after two toddlers, I have the stamina and mental clarity to mindfully embrace motherhood. For example, I can learn to maintain my cool when my child has a tantrum or know when I need to invest in self-care before feeling depleted in body, mind and spirit.
Yoga has been an invaluable resource for me-I can’t imagine navigating pregnancy and motherhood without it.
From my heart to yours,

"Gawd, I hate yoga. But despite my eye-rolling and lack of flexibility, I always feel good after. I've been relying on it a lot with this pregnancy. All the little aches and pains melt away after just a short sesh. Plus, my mood improves which is critical when dealing with the pendulum of hormones. This is a great program made even better because I don't have to leave my nest!"
"This was an amazing resource for me as I was growing during my pregnancy and needed an outlet for exercise and relaxation. Bea's voice is relaxing and soothing, her guidance is helpful and wonderful!"
