Join Hala as she goes through her second pregnancy with you in this comprehensive yoga program. Hala artfully blends her expertise in yoga and mind-body psychology to create a practice that will nourish your body and all the changes it is undergoing, your mind with the ups-and-downs it is going through, and your spirit as you enter into one of the most profound life experiences possible.
There are specific practices for each trimester; each section includes a gentle warm up, more challenging poses to strengthen and support your changing body, restoratives to allow for deep rest and relaxation, and a meditation specific to what might be occurring at each stage of pregnancy.
- The gentle first trimester practices are designed to support implantation as well as to address some of the physical and emotional changes that your body is going through.
- The second trimester workout is a bit more vigorous as your body is needing to strengthen and support your growing belly.
- In the third trimester, we focus on birth preparation as well as continuing to support your body to be strong and stable.
- You can pick & choose which segments to do within each trimester practice depending on your energy level. Some days you may do a full hour and others you may do only Restoratives.
Disclaimer: When I made this video over a decade ago, I did not know about the importance of using inclusive language around pregnancy to acknowledge that non-binary and transgender men can have babies. I have edited out as many instances of using ‘women’ to refer to people who give birth, but there are a few instances that I was unable to remove. I still want to offer this resource to pregnant people as I think it is a valuable one. I apologize in advance for when my language may not include everyone.
