A Hot Yoga Pregnancy: Jaime Cahalan
Our own Riverflow hot yoga teacher Jaime Cahalan is pregnant!
Not only is she continuing her hot yoga practice, she is also teaching hot yoga throughout her pregnancy.
Now that's a baby with a great start in life.
Jaime was a strong hot yoga practitioner - an average of 3 classes per week for the past 18 months - and so far she reports feeling more energized, calmer and more relaxed as she continues hot yoga during pregnancy. Jaime's midwife suggested that she monitor her core body temperature during class. (HAPPY NOTE: Jaime's core temperature has remained completely stable during even the hottest hot yoga summer classes). And you will begin to see Jaime doing the Pregnancy Hot Yoga alternative belly poses sometime around her 20th week. Meanwhile, follow her hot yoga pregnancy here - ask questions, and comment on her blog posts.
This week the avocado yoga baby has grown, turning my little fruit baby into a little veggie baby: a turnip.
Every week so far has been entirely different. Weeks 4-12 were just plain no fun! Fatigue, strange hunger cravings (I mean, strange), and the worst nausea I have ever experienced. Most of the time I didn't feel like myself and really had to keep reminding myself that this is normal.
