  • I am pregnant. Should I start doing yoga?
    Yes definitely, and please adapt into the stages of pregnancy in which weeks/months are you now so you can practice mindfully. If you are new to yoga, we recommend that you take the beginner practice, which focusing on breathing and some gentle movement. All of Bali Mama prenatal yoga videos made based on the experience of the instructor and feel free to modify the posture in a sense that feels acceptable in the body. These classes are very safe and are appropriate for any stage of pregnancy. We advised to consult with your midwife or obstetrician before you start the sessions. Do bear in mind that the first trimester (12 weeks) is the most delicate stage of the pregnancy as the placenta is still developing and during those period of months, the risk of miscarriage is greatest. Although it is extremely unlikely that pregnancy yoga would be the cause of a miscarriage, it is important to practice cautiously.
  • I've done lots of yoga before. Can I do other yoga besides prenatal yoga?
    We still recommend you wait until you have had your 12 week scan and have been approved to exercise by your doctor or midwife. The first trimester is the most delicate stage of the pregnancy as the placenta is not fully established and the risk of miscarriage is greatest. While you've been doing lots of yoga before, it's important to consider the unique needs of your body during pregnancy. Prenatal yoga is specifically designed to provide a safe and supportive practice for expecting mothers, taking into account the changes in your body. However, there are still options for you to continue practicing yoga during pregnancy. Prenatal yoga classes are an excellent choice, as they are tailored to the specific needs of pregnant women. Additionally, you might consider gentle or restorative yoga classes that focus on relaxation and stress relief. Before trying any new type of yoga during pregnancy, it's crucial to consult with your healthcare provider to ensure that it's safe for you and your baby. They can provide personalized advice based on your health and the specific trimester of your pregnancy. Remember to listen to your body, modify poses as needed, and avoid any movements that cause discomfort. Staying active during pregnancy is great, but safety should always be the top priority. If you're unsure, it's always a good idea to choose classes specifically designed for pregnant women or work with a certified prenatal yoga instructor who can guide you through a safe and enjoyable practice.
  • Can I attend online classes?
    Due to the lack of direct physical interaction between teacher and students, please practice at your own capacity. Which means you may adapt into each poses accordingly based on your physical sensation. If you are familiar with yoga, you are past the 12th week scan and have been given the green light from the midwife/obstetrician and your pregnancy has no complications, then you can refer to the guide below: - Each videos divided by 3 sequence : warm up, the main practice, cool down. - Create a space where you can dedicate this nurturing practice for yourself. See the Orientation video for ideas of props at home :) - Once you settle, check in with yourself before you start : "How am I doing right now?" "How's my energy level?" - Then decide whether you want to do only one of the sequence or the full session, you dedicate the moment to be with yourself. - Keep in mind that it's always good to warm up and cool down. You can also do your Breathing Practice from the free video section, then continue to the practice. - It's a self pace session, practice at your own convenient time :) - Hydrate and rest after the session Overall, ENJOY! PS : You can invite your friend or loved one to join the session with you :)
