I had prepared myself to a T for my birthing day, practicing yoga throughout my pregnancy but I had done little to prepare myself for the changes and challenges that were about to take place afterwards. Those first few weeks as a new mom I was caught up in a flurry of feedings, diapers, baths and tears (both baby’s and mine).
It was a time of transformation, insecurity, and stress, but at the same time I was filled with pure joy and a love I’d never felt before! I was all over the place both physically and mentally and I had forgotten about myself, only focusing on the needs of my baby. After a couple of months I realized it was time for me to go back to my practice. I needed yoga and I needed it fast so I joined a Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training to learn how I could use yoga to help me transition into motherhood.
