Pregnancy will be more peaceful and enjoyable as the body adapts to accommodate the baby. We may use props such as blankets, bolsters and blocks, the wall or help of a chair, to facilitate access to stretch the body and help with balance and harmony. Breath work, modified postures, and some meditation will lessen anxiety and allow the body and mind to feel comfortable and confident with its changes.
