Eoin Finn and Insiya Raiswala-Finn practice yoga
These days yoga is like having a good night’s sleep. Except I don’t need to climb into my pjs or get horizontal for at least eight hours. Last month I wrote about the awesomeness that is prenatal massage.
This month I wanted to focus on my other favourite pregnancy activity (besides eating and prenatal massage, that is). Yoga is yet another lovely and relaxing way to nurture and support my body through all these big physical and emotional changes. When I get on my mat, I feel like I’ve slept eight hours (which often I haven’t), my tight spots grow loose and my weak spots become stronger.
To get the skinny on pregnancy yoga, I canvased former Vancouver yoga instructors Insiya Raiswala-Finn and her hubby Blissologist Eoin Finn. These B.C. yoga teachers, happen to not only be amazing, gumby-like yogis but they’re also married and proud parents of a little boy.
“Pregnancy is one of the most transformative times in a woman’s body and I can’t stress how helpful yoga can be during the entire continuum of a pregnancy,” wrote Raiswala-Finn, creator of yoga and eco-lifestyle blog Yogue. “It has far reaching physical, mental and emotional benefits that impact the woman practicing it as well as the developing foetus.”
Below I’ll share tips and advice from Raiswala-Finn and some suggestions on where you can find prenatal yoga classes around Vancouver. Continue reading:
