I sometimes feel like I'm "16 & Pregnant" as a preggo in the UWS. Being with child under 30 seems to push me into the minority. (If there was ever an example of women delaying childrearing and being pregnant later on in life, my neighborhood is it.)
So prenatal yoga:
*The breathing and concious movement has been a welcomed release for me.
*The same mats and airy studio feels homey and warm.
*The slew of pregnant women creates an immediate sense of community.
*Feels kindof like wussy yoga though.
*I'm craving more than the stretching and delicate movements.
*Kegals are great.
*Is this really doing anything?
But at the end, my favorite mantra. One that should resonate in us all and that I wished for this baby girl...
"May you feel safe. May you be healthy. May you be loved. May you feel peace."
