Talita Pregnancy Wellness 3This month Bliss Baby Yoga Prenatal and Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training graduate, naturopath, and mama-of-1, Talita Sheedy, shares her tips for wellness during pregnancy.

As a naturopath, yoga teacher and now mum, my passion has grown for pregnancy and highlighted how we can be more mindful throughout our pregnancies. Making the smallest changes enables you to enrich your pregnancy to make it enjoyable and healthy for you and bub.


Lucy LRLucy Roberts graduated from the Bliss Baby Yoga 100 hr Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga Teacher Training in March last year. She has since been teaching prenatal yoga, during her own pregnancy, and in April this year gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Rose. This is Lucys story about how yoga helped her during her pregnancy as well as those women with whom she shared this powerful practice. 

After 16 years of teaching Yoga, and more than a decade as a Teacher Trainer with international yoga school Yoga Arts, last March I enrolled as a student in Bliss Baby Yogas 100 hour Prenatal & Postnatal Training in my recently-returned-to home of Byron Bay.

Lunge Pose PrenatalThis month our Bliss Baby Yoga Director and Founder, Ana Davis, shares beneficial postures for releasing the Psoas during pregnancy.

In our Bliss Baby Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training courses we teach that there are five important Posture Groups for a pregnant woman to practice for optimal health, vitality and balance during her pregnancy and to prepare for birth.  One of these Posture Groups is what we call the ‘Releasing Postures.’  The idea behind these type of postures is that we want to release any aches and pains in a pregnant student’s lower back and hip area.  During pregnancy, particularly the latter stages when her growing uterus has expanded well above the line of her navel, it is very common for her spine to be pulled into ‘lordosis’ or a kind of ‘banana back’, and for the top of her sacrum to tip forward. This is due to the weight of her enlarged belly pulling forward on the ligaments that support the uterus and essentially moving her whole centre of gravity forward and out of the natural vertical alignment. 


This month we share some practical tips for Prenatal Yoga Teachers from Senior Bliss Baby Yoga course facilitator, experienced prenatal and postnatal yoga teacher and mother of two, Mari Notaras.

Prenatal Yoga 4What a wonderful time in a women’s life to find out she is pregnant - so much joy and excitement! This life changing experience brings with it an array of different emotions, thoughts, and inevitably a re-evaluation of what is most important in life. It is no surprise to find that many women are drawn to yoga during their pregnancy; perhaps an intuitive decision, or a recommendation from a family member, friend or health professional. Nevertheless, as a prenatal yoga teacher, it is important to acknowledge that your class will be made up of women of all different abilities, backgrounds and experiences; those who have had a regular yoga practice, through to women who have never attended a yoga class before in their lives!  So what is it that we are primarily aiming to share with our pregnant students when we are teaching them prenatal yoga?
