The emphasis on self-practice within the Ashtanga Yoga tradition provides a basis for a yoga practice that can provide support through the journey to motherhood and beyond. For all practitioners, our yoga practice changes and adapts as we change as individuals. Every person in the room has their own, personal, unique practice, and this is the same for practicing during pregnancy.
Sharmila and Anna’s book is a wonderful resource. It contains clear, illustrated guidelines on modifications to the Ashtanga Yoga practice during pregnancy along with over 30 first-hand stories from women practitioners of their personal experiences including Lucy Crawford.
