My pregnancy journal – Prenatal Yoga (part 1)

Before, I’ve been dying to try YOGA… but since I have limited time due to my workload, it all falls to PLANNING/DREAMING mode. Anyway, thank you to Manila Workshop for having a Prenatal Seminars with Yoga for 800/session or 3,000 for all 4 session/seminar.

March 8, 2014 my very first attempt of YOGA intended for pregnant women =)

Some pose are difficult because of our BUMP… but the outcome is great! Before, I’m active with running/ walking/ mountain climbing & surfing but since I’m having a maselan na pagbubuntis… my actions are very limited. After all those months, my muscles & veins are stretched =)
