FRIDAY FUN! yoga with my baby boy!
This is only my third time on the yoga mat since having Harry and now I feel like my body is ready for a regular - but gentle - practice. I was so desperate to get back to a yoga practice after giving birth. I had to learn that my body needed longer to heal.
After a blood infection, post dural puncture headache, sepsis, an emergency cesarean and 6 weeks of being ill, I had to be patient and allow my body the time it needed to recover. For someone who is rarely ill, and pre-pregnancy very active, its been a real struggle feeling so weak. The first day i came out of hospital, i was taken to the car in a wheel chair because i was so weak. I couldnt climb the stairs in our house for several days. I lost all my strength, I was (and still am some days) in a lot of pain. I needed whatever energy I had to look after my baby. It's been a tough 6 months, but also the most incredible 6 months of my life.
I'm still in recovery from the sepsis and could be for another 6 months. So I continue to practice the art of slowing down!! Thought i should have nailed that one during pregnancy 😂 Need to practice what I preach and implement more mindfulness into my life 😁😂 Yesterday I was able to do 4 sun salutations and 5 yin yoga postures. And that made me SO happy!
Remember folks...it doesn't matter how deep into a posture you go, what matters is, who you are when you get there 🙏
Have a great weekend, Namaste 💗
