You are embarking on the amazing journey of motherhood. Whether this is your first or fifth pregnancy, every body, every belly, and every baby is different. Grace, patience, and lots of self-love is necessary during the process.
Embrace the Change!
Yoga is a phenomenal low impact exercise suitable for any stage of your life. Especially when you’re expecting. Prenatal yoga is a beautiful way for an expecting mama to connect with her changing body and nurture the precious soul(s) growing inside of her.
Expect the Unexpected!
Now that I’ve experienced a twin pregnancy, I have a whole new perspective on the importance of the yoga practice and the power of meditation. I realize that a lot of life is out of our control but we can choose how we react to life’s surprises.

For busy mamas on the go.
Pregnancy is exciting.
But let’s face it, pregnancy can be scary too. Participating in the Miracle of Life is an intense right of passage for a woman’s and yoga can help the process feel more manageable for these 3 main reasons:
1. BREATH: Learning how to move with your breath helps during pregnancy as well as labor and delivery.
2. BODY: Stretching can help with the aches of growing pains as well as improves circulation, supplying more oxygen to your baby.
3. MIND: Nurturing your Mind-Body relationship is essential to help you get through pregnancy and prepare for the labor and motherhood.
Practicing Self Love

*** TRIGGER WARNING ***
As my twins approach a year an a half, I decided to return to BIRTHFIT and their Postpartum program to build strength and community. On day 1, coach Embo gave us the assignment to write our birth story, which I had always wanted to do, but never got done. I had shared the story verbally on the BIRTHFIT podcast, but I hadn’t taken the time to write it. So I was grateful for the assignment and here it is…
It was a beautiful morning wedding outdoors overlooking the ocean with a jazz brunch and dance party that followed. The next day we left for our Hawaiian honeymoon where we spent 10 days resting, relaxing, and rejuvenating.
After arriving home, we were in bliss. We both went back to work and things seemed relatively normal except my period never came. We were pregnant. Like, whoa. I had joked to friends that I wanted to get preggers on my honeymoon but I couldn’t believe that it actually happened. Just like that...
