“I always had plans to start yoga, but didn’t get around to it until I became pregnant. Signing up for class was on of the first things I did for my son. I started last September. I was worried I wouldn’t always go to class because I was tired, or because I had too much work to do, but the opposite was true. Instead of collapsing into sleep on the couch after work, I could actually make dinner, plan lessons and talk to my husband if I went to yoga .
I resisted changing. I was pregnant, not ill or weak. I wanted to work and live and do yoga without modifications. But there was a being growing inside of me, altering my shape, shifting my organs, changing my chemistry. Yoga helped me to explore and embrace, what my son and I were becoming. There are many ways to be strong.
Breathing into different parts of my body became especially important to me as we grew. I talked to my son and myself with my breath. This became our labor.” Archive Newsletter 2006.
