Just next week it’ll be time for me to go on maternity leave and not teach yoga anymore – for a while. I can’t believe it’s already 7 months since the pregnancy test had a big fat cross on it and my yoga clothes got looser and looser so I wouldn’t have to reveal the little bump until the magical 12 weeks. If things keep going this fast (and I hear they will) the little boy in my tummy will be starting school in no time.
It’s been great to teach restorative yoga all through pregnancy. I’ve said that I’ll keep going as I still have air enough to talk through an hour of mindfulness – and I still do – but as I get to leave 8 weeks before my due date on my other (real) job, I think it’s only fair to stop teaching now too. Besides I can feel that my body just wants to slow down and nest now…
So the next 8 weeks will be spent with my own prenatal yoga practice, restorative yoga, mindfulness, listening to HypnoBirthing tracks and rehearsing my breathing that I’m learning at Smertefri Fødsel. And of course getting ready for the biggest change of my life. I can’t wait to meet the little yogi.
I’ll keep you updated.
