If you’ve listened to me for a while or followed me on Instagram then you may know that I love yoga so I’m always happy to chat about it on the podcast. Lara Heimann is a yoga instructor, physical therapist, and creator of the LYT Yoga Method. She is a mother of two and has created a special pre/post natal series on her platform to help expecting and new parents build and hold onto energy.
You know how I feel about “the snapback.” That’s not what this is about. Lara’s and my discussion focuses instead on how movement and strength building can help you to have a healthier and happier pregnancy. As your belly grows bigger you will need a stronger back to support it; as your breasts increase in size, you’ll want stronger shoulders to hold them. Connect with your body, learn to listen to it, and give it what it needs. You’re going to learn all kinds of helpful skills for wellness in this episode!
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- What made Lara want to become a yoga instructor
- How her approach is different
- How paying attention to the way we move impacts all other areas of our lives
- Why posture is so important
- How a movement practice - whether it’s yoga or not - can make you better equipped to handle pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery
- What types of movement and poses you can do during pregnancy
- How improper posture and a sedentary lifestyle can drain energy
