I am no yoga coach, having just attended a few classes. Now, it begs the question, why am I writing about yoga when I know next to nothing about it?.
A weird kind of yoga ( or what I assumed was yoga) helped me to keep my head above water when I had post-partum depression following the birth of my two sons. Both times, I didn’t know what had it me, turning to alcohol to get by, but no that was no solution and never will be.
Yoga for Soon-To-Be-Mothers
What is all the clamor over yoga for pregnancy?
You have a protruding belly, unusual cravings for food at odd hours, not giving thought to what you’re wearing and so on and you need yoga or yoga is the next thing? But of course, I could only marvel at the benefits of yoga as a mother after I signed up for the classes, learned about yoga in books and some online materials.
Yoga amazingly can help a lot of mothers to regain both physical and mental strengths, sending moms on a journey of self-discovery, self-realization, and self-improvement. Yoga helps from within, repairing and healing the psyche and this ultimately shines through.
With mothers always worrying about a lot of things and with the all the hormones in the body fighting for their spots, it no wonders why mothers often find it hard to stay calm and be more at peace. Doctors always advise moms that, despite nutrition being very crucial; a calm, relaxed and quiet mind is equally as important for expectant mothers.
Yoga for the Regular Mother
With yoga helping to relax and slowing down to breath, it becomes apparent that yoga is a good choice when thinking of starting a work-out program or better yet, get a gym membership, which I also did. I go to these classes to sweat- and of course, I do not go to look nice after these sessions, but damn I sure do feel good after.
Yoga can help to open a mother’s mind and free it up. Yoga has this calming effect on persons that words can not describe. It just has to be felt. Doing some movements and concentrating on those moves can pushing negativity out of mind, yoga can be like throwing the trash, unwanted thoughts and negativity out of mind. And this could prove perfect for the whole family including the kids. After just a single session of yoga, you’ll feel rejuvenated and anew. Even a tired out mom can relax and spend happier times with the kids.
Instead of moms to feel disgruntled and suffocated, they can use yoga to find an opening, to release and relax not just the body but the whole psyche.
I certainly can’t speak for you, but I’m signing up for more sessions, I have seen the benefits. If yoga can do a lot for ordinary non-married kidless folks…talk about what it can do for us mothers.
