Are you (or someone you know) pregnant?
This precious time, while exciting, comes with so many changes… physical changes in how your body is aligned to the internal changes of our own awareness of our ever-changing bodies.
As I write this post, I am almost 37 weeks pregnant (home stretch!). I started feeling those common pelvic joint aches and pains a few weeks back, but more alarmingly (to me) I found that I am constantly misjudging where my body is in space. My innate sense of body awareness has definitely been affected! Closing a car door into your baby bump is no fun… 😉
I am not sure why it took me so long to realize how beautifully the Feldenkrais Method could help revive my body awareness and with finding more ease in my daily movement! And with that realization, I developed a short Prenatal Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement (ATM) Series to share with you all.
This series focuses on some of the main challenges I have been facing in my third trimester:
- Finding a more expansive breath
- Rolling from side to side with ease (hello, frequent night-time wake ups due to rolling struggles!)
- Getting on/off the floor with ease
- Pelvic awareness
- Squat preparation for optimal birthing positioning
All of these ATM videos can be found on my YouTube channel. Watch this informational Intro video for details!
