Hints and Precautions:
During the yoga class:
* Please listen to the instructor carefully and always let common sense prevail.
* Be guided by your own body and comfort at all times.
* Trust in yourself. Your body will let you know if a posture or movement feels okay, or if it is pushing too much. If something doesn’t feel right, its not.
* Practice with gentleness and enjoyment, and always be on the side of caution if you are ever unsure of anything during your practice.
* The practice at this time is mindful and gentle, never forcing or straining.
* Remember also that Yoga is completely non competitive. This is just about you and your baby!
* Whatever is good for mum, is good for baby. And whatever is good for baby, is good for mum!
* Breath, Relax and Enjoy!
