LISTEN INSIDE This photo was taken this week, only seven years ago. 10 days before my son was born. I had grand plans for a prenatal yoga book so @peterrutherhagen took these photos of me in week 38.
I practiced yoga until two days before going into labor and I honestly didn't modify or change my practice that much. I did what felt right and good, to some extent independent of what you're "supposed" to do while pregnant. (hence the not-yet-if-ever-published prenatal book!)
However, more than during any other time of my life I truly listened inside, to what I, and my baby, needed. It was so clear, obvious even, when I shouldn't do certain poses anymore and what I needed every day.
We all have this capacity, to really listen within. To get a better understanding of what we need, mentally, emotionally, physically at any given moment and maybe that is the real practice going on. Maybe the yoga book should be about that. #yogaisaninsidejob #tb
